Rashaun Weaver Biography, Rashaun Weaver Wiki
Rashaun Weaver was taken into custody late Friday and charged with two counts of murder, more than two months after the gruesome slaying shocked New York City.
District Attorney Vance stated that there is substantial evidence that proves Weaver stabbed Majors.
He stated that there is: ‘Video evidence, blood evidence, smartphone evidence, iCloud evidence, witness identification, and the defendant’s owned statements that were rigorously collected and examined’.
According to the complaint provided to DailyMail.com on Saturday, Weaver is accused of conducting a separate mugging in Morningside Park four days prior to Majors’ murder.
According to that mugging victim, Weaver and two other boys confronted him on the night of December 7 and stole his iPhone. Just hours later, the iPhone was connected to an iCloud account in Weaver’s name.
The mugging victim later identified Weaver from a photo line up. Additionally, the 14-year-old was seen on surveillance camera wearing the exact same outfit during both his alleged December 7 mugging and his alleged December 11 stabbing of Majors.

Tessa Majors Stabbed to Death
Cops allege 18-year-old Majors, a freshman at the prestigious Barnard College, was confronted by a group of three teens as she walked through Morningside Park on the evening of December 11, before she was stabbed in a botched robbery.
During Saturday’s press conference, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance also revealed tragic new details about Majors’ final minutes. He stated she lay conscious and heavily bleeding as bystanders waited for an ambulance.
She was pronounced dead at 7.23 pm – meaning there was more than half an hour between the time of the attack and her death.
Weaver was the suspect who fled from a car five days after Majors’ murder, while on his way to meet with police for questioning. It sparked an intensive ten-day manhunt before Weaver was tracked down at a family member’s home in The Bronx.
Police believed his family was hiding him until a mark on his hand healed. After being tracked down and interviewed, he was released.
Her last known words were believed to be: ‘Help me! I’m being robbed!’
Meanwhile, a 13-year-old boy is already being held in custody over the robbery of Majors – however, it is believed he watched the events unfold, and was not responsible for the actual stabbing of Majors.
