BET Interview Opens New Look Into Tupac Murder Case

Published

on

Tupac’s murder is still unsolved but there might be a new lead in the case.

BET documentary that featured an interview with the uncle of a onetime person of interest in Tupac Shakur’s 1996 drive-by murder has resulted in a renewed look at the homicide by Las Vegas police.

In an interview that aired in February on the docuseries Death Row Chronicles, Keffe D (aka Duane Keith Davis) said he was in the front seat when someone in the back seat opened fire on a car carrying Shakur and Suge Knight on September 7, 1996 the Las Vegas Strip, killing Shakur at age 25.

Davis’ cousin, Orlando Anderson, was one of the men identified as being in the back seat of the car that shot at Shakur, who was hit four times and later died at a local hospital. Anderson, a member of the Southside Crips and a aperson of interest in the murder investigation, was shot and killed in a gang fight in 1998.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told local outlets Wednesday that Davis’ interview prompted a renewed look at the case, which they say remains open. No arrests are imminent despite some media reports suggesting otherwise, according to police.

“We are aware of the statements made in a BET interview regarding the Tupac case,” they said in a statement. “As a result of those statements we have spent the last several months reviewing the case in its entirety. Various reports that an arrest warrant is about to be submitted are inaccurate. This case still remains an open homicide case.”

Drake is suing the woman that made false pregnancy and rape allegations against him in 2017.

According to TMZ, in the suit, Layla Lace met Drake during last year’s Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England, where he claimed they had consensual sex.

He claimed that when he stopped responding to subsequent messages, she allegedly began threatening to leak their correspondence, publicly claimed he had impregnated her, accused him of rape, and demanded “millions of dollars” in exchange for silence. Drake is reportedly suing for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.

The suit claims Layla refused to take a paternity test and Layla and her lawyer went radio silent. Drake says the whole thing was a scam … “There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall.”

According to the lawsuit, Layla switched tactics and went to authorities in New York and alleged Drake had raped her during their one-night stand.

The Manchester police reportedly interviewed and cleared Drake of sexual assault accusations when the case was referred to them.
