A new television documentary claims to have solved the 22-year-old murder of rap star Tupac Shakur.
Rapper Keefe D, real name Duane Keith Davis, is dying from cancer. He says he is the only person still alive who can reveal what happened on the night of September 7, 1996 and wanted to do so before he passes away. It is known that Tupac and Death Row Records boss Suge Knight attended the Mike Tyson v Bruce Seldon boxing match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. After the fight, Orlando ‘Baby Lane’ Anderson was spotted in the MGM Grand lobby. He, and other members of the Crips gang, had allegedly robbed a Death Row employee earlier in the year. Tupac, along with his and Suge Knight’s entourage, took revenge by attacking Anderson.
Later that night, Anderson, plus fellow Crips Keefe D, Terrence ‘T-Brown’ Brown, and DeAndre ‘Dre’ Smith, searched Las Vegas for Tupac with the intention of exacting retribution. He was eventually found, according to Keefe D, standing up through the open top of a car ‘like a celebrity in a parade.’ The Crips pulled alongside in their car and Orlando Anderson fired the shots from which Tupac eventually succumbed six days later. Assuming Keefe D’s words are true, they confirm a 2002 story in the Los Angeles
Times by investigative reporter Chuck Phillips who named Anderson as Tupac’s killer. He had died four years earlier, aged 24, in an unrelated gang shooting. Las Vegas police had discounted Anderson as a suspect after one brief interview.
