Tupac Amaru Shakur, also known by his stage names 2Pac and Makaveli, was an American rapper and actor who was murdered in 1996.
Tupac was considered by many to be one of the greatest rappers of all time
The murder of rap star Tupac Shakur has been an unsolved mystery for years, with a lot of theories behind who killed him.
Tupac’s murder occurred when he was at a traffic light in Las Vegas. A white van suddenly appeared beside his car and unknown assailants unleashed a hail of bullets on the rapper and his passenger, record label owner Marion Hugh ’Suge’ Knight.
Tupac was only 25-years-old when he was gunned down in Las Vegas on 7 September 1996, and died six days later from the injuries caused by four bullets that struck his body.
However, we have reasons to believe the murder may have been solved according to a report by one of the original detectives assigned to the case.
Former LAPD homicide officer Greg Kading claims Las Vegas police have all the evidence they need to make an arrest for the star’s murder.
Speaking on America’s KCAL, Greg claims original suspect Orlando Anderson’s uncle Duane Keith ‘Keefe D’ Davis holds the key to unlocking the truth. SDE reports
The retired cop says Keefe D confessed to the killing when he questioned him over the murder of fellow rapper Biggie Smalls.
“Anderson leaned over and rolled down the window and popped him,” Keffe is alleged to have said in a recording from the interview.
It is alleged that Keefe argued his aim was not good enough and gave his gun to his nephew, Orlando, to take the shots at Tupac.
However Orlando was later killed in a gang shootout in California two years later.
Greg told KCAL: “Clearly there is probable cause to arrest him Davis.”
Keefe D had earlier been protected by a proffer session which allowed him to give information about the crime without the confession being used against him in court.
