Biggie Death Investigation “Reinvigorated”

Biggie died on March 24, 1997. The case is still pending and has since been “reinvigorated” due to new information according to CNN. This would be a big win for hip-hop to have answers to this tragic death of a highly talented MC. It’s unfortunate that this has taken this long but we hope to have a resolution soon. I don’t need to know who killed this guy when I’m 80 which seems to be the case these years.

Retired Los Angeles Police Detective Russell Poole, who worked on the Wallace case, told CNN that he believes Knight was behind the murder, even though the Death Row Records’ boss was serving time on a probation violation at the time.

Suge Knight ordered the hit,” Poole said, adding that he believes it was arranged by Reggie Wright Jr., who headed security for Death Row Records.

Reggie Wright Jr. told CNN he had nothing to do with the murder, and Knight has repeatedly said he had nothing to do with the crime. Poole said he retired early from the LAPD, in part, because he was thwarted in following leads in the Wallace case involving police officers, some of whom worked off-duty for Death Row Records.

“I think I was getting too close to the truth,” Poole said. “I think they feared that the truth would be a scandal.”
