Facts Behind the Murder of Tupac Shakur

Written by former LAPD Detective Russell Poole and Michael Douglas Carlin

THE CRIME:
On September 7th, 1996 Suge Knight was driving a BMW in Las Vegas with Tupac Shakur in the passenger seat. A White Cadillac pulled alongside the car and 13 bullets were fired all over the car. Tupac Shakur was struck multiple times and a bullet lodged in his lung. Tupac Shakur died on September 13, 1996 from wounds sustained from the crime according to the autopsy.

JURISDICTION:
The shooting occurred in Las Vegas.

If there was a conspiracy to kill Tupac then the jurisdiction is where the conspiracy began.

Death Row Records was headquartered in Los Angeles, County so if the conspiracy occurred in LA County then Los Angeles Police, Sheriffs, and the DA’s office have clear jurisdiction.

EVIDENCE OF CONSPIRACY

Evidence examined includes: the records from the Tupac and Biggie LAPD investigation; the Death Row Records Bankruptcy Filings; the Christopher Wallace Estate's civil trial against the City of Los Angeles for wrongful death; secret tape recordings made by bodyguard Frank Alexander in the immediate aftermath of the Shakur shooting; FBI Released Files; various other files, audio and video recordings; and a confession letter written in 1998 that was given to Fox 11 journalist Chris Blatchford.

1.     Reggie Wright disarmed all security guards on the night of the shooting. This was a break from the normal protocol when guarding artists in Las Vegas.
2.     Michael Moore refused the order and insisted on carrying his weapon. He was removed from guarding Tupac Shakur and was ordered to Club 662 where he was to stay close to Reggie Wright.
3.     Michael Moore spoke of standing next to Reggie Wright in front of Club 662 at the time of the shooting and hearing “Got ‘em” coming over the radio – see Tupac Assassination Video.
4.     "'Em" probably refers to both Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight. With 13 shots being fired the shooters probably really thought they “Got ’em”. The Shooting was an immediate failure. Tupac wasn’t killed and Suge was only hit by a bullet fragment.
5.     Bodyguard Frank Alexander was told to lie about the Orlando Anderson incident by Reggie Wright. He told investigators that Orlando had grabbed Tupac’s chain earlier in the evening breaking the chain. That incident morphed into the Orlando Anderson Chain Grab Narrative at the Lakewood Mall. Frank Alexander came clean with Las Vegas Investigators and he was told by the Los Angeles DA’s office and Death Row Records Associates that his life was now in danger. Those conversations were secretly recorded by Frank Alexander. (we have copies of these recordings).
6.     According to the Biggie Smalls Civil Trial Reggie Wright is a suspect in the murder of Christopher Wallace aka Biggie Smalls aka The Notorious BIG.
7.     Reggie Wright Jr. shows up at every one of the interviews of Death Row Records insiders by Las Vegas Police.
8.     Reggie Wright Jr. reveals that off-duty LAPD police worked for Wrightway Security on Death Row Records assignments.
9.     David Kenner rented home of Larry Longo through Frank Longo - Larry's son. Kenner then moves Suge Knight into the home setting up a clear conflict of interest. Larry Longo is fired but cleared of any wrongdoing. The maneuver was clearly orchestrated by Kenner to get Suge’s probation violated in a way that judges abhor. This incident sealed Suge’s fate and he was sentenced to nine years in prison.
10. Chuck Philips wrote about conflict of interest with Larry Longo putting the final nails in Suge Knights probation violation.
11. It is clear in the aftermath of the Tupac and Suge Shooting on September 7, 1996 that Suge Knight no longer trusted Reggie Wright to handle his security. He uses his homeboys instead – a fact that Reggie Wright conveys through Kevin Lewis to LAPD Senior Lead Ken Knox. Using convicted felons as security was a violation of Suge’s probation. Reggie Wright also tells Knox directly that Suge has been traveling out of the country – another probation violation. Reggie is trying desperately to get Suge’s probation revoked.
12. David Kenner bungled Suge's probation hearing sealing Suge's fate in being incarcerated. When they couldn't kill Suge they conspired to send him away.
13. Christopher Wallace aka Biggie Smalls is murdered on a Los Angeles street. The murder is committed to further galvanize the East Coast/West Coast feud and throw investigators off of the trail of actual murderers in Tupac Shakur's murder. The murder may have also been used by Wright to get back into Suge’s good graces.
14. Experience modification from Tupac's murder to Biggie's murder. Gang kids used for Tupac's murder with regular ammo and a wide pattern of bullets. Biggie's murder used a professional assassin with armor piercing ammunition and a tight pattern with almost same drive by tactics.
15. Detective Russell Poole met with resistance inside of LAPD to fully investigate the murder of Christopher Wallace, and to fully investigate corruption of Officer Kevin Gaines by department leadership. He later is pulled off of the cases and reassigned and eventually pushed out of the department. His reports on the incidents are gutted and much of the information disappears along with Frank Lygga's personnel package.
16. Reggie Wright Jr. was second in command at Death Row Records and ended up running record label after Suge was incarcerated by maneuvering himself into that position. The chaos at Death Row Records that began October 22nd when Suge is arrested and put in jail, ends when Wright is put in charge.
17. Ken Knox, Senior Lead, details in a police report that New Jersey Crips and Los Angeles Bloods are together in Death Row's CAN-AM Studios together a few weeks before Yak Fula is assassinated in New Jersey. David Kenner is contacted by Las Vegas Police to arrange the interview of Yak Fula. Kenner never arranges the interview and Fula is killed before Las Vegas Investigators can find him on their own.
18. Murders in immediate aftermath of Tupac Shakur's murder were those affiliated, witnesses, or with knowledge of the murder. Murder's before Suge was released from prison were those who were Suge's inner circle to weaken Suge from putting together muscle to retaliate upon his release.
19. According to Kevin Hackie the gun used to kill Tupac Shakur was a Glock .40 that was confiscated by an off-duty Santa Monica Police Officer during a routine search at the House of Blues of Hussein Fatal, one of Tupac's Outlawz. The gun was ballistics tested by the FBI before being released to Kevin Hackie who subsequently gave the gun to Reggie Wright Jr. According to Hackie the ballistics from the murder were matched with the gun used in the Tupac murder. Timeline on the gun looks like this: July 4th, 1996 at the House of Blues Hussein Fatal is detained for possession of a firearm when he attempts to enter the venue with the gun. Late July Reggie Wright contacts Kevin Hackie and asks him to keep tabs on the weapon. The weapon is ballistics tested and run through the crime database. No match for a crime is found at that time. Sometime in August Santa Monica Police contact Kevin Hackie and tell him the gun is cleared for pickup. He retrieves the gun and takes it to his handlers at the FBI and ATF. They clear him to release the gun to Reggie Wright Jr. He gives the gun to Wright. On September 7, 1996 the gun is used to kill Rapper Tupac Shakur. When Las Vegas Police book shell casings and bullets into evidence they are sent off to the FBI where they are ballistics tested. They are run through the federal database where they match the gun confiscated by the House of Blues. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMv36k2RoVU
20. The Dannemora Contract was signed by Suge Knight on September 15th and by Tupac Shakur on September 16th meaning that this contract was written the day before Suge and Kenner visited Tupac Shakur. They intended for this contract to be vague so they could steal Tupac's money. Evidence of that theft surfaced after Tupac's death. The theft would become a problem for David Kenner as this contract was a clear conflict of interest for Kenner that could have led to his disbarment.
21. David Kenner was terminated by Tupac Shakur days before Tupac's Murder.
22. Tupac made it clear in New York, four days before his murder, that he was leaving Death Row Records.
23. Evidence of theft of Tupac's money emerges months after Tupac's murder as Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, begins digging into Tupac's business affairs.
24. Michael Harris was beginning to send thugs to visit Suge requesting repayment of original investment and profits from the record label. Suge's inner circle was turning them away.
25. Waymond Anderson says that Michael and Lydia Harris were part of a plot to overthrow Death Row Records at the time that Tupac Shakur was killed.
26. Sharitha would have inherited Suge Knight's shares in Death Row Records. At the time Death Row Records was worth as much as $500 Million.
27. FBI, ATF, and LAPD were all investigating Death Row Records at the time of Tupac Murder and the attempt on Suge Knight. Those investigations would have probably stopped if Suge Knight was killed leaving Sharitha and Reggie to run the record label without interference.
28. Sharitha Knight was dating Officer Kevin Gaines at the time of Tupac's murder. Snoop was on trial for murder that same year. Snoop was acquitted when evidence disappeared from an evidence locker at LAPD that Gaines had access to. Gaines was gunned down by officer Frank Lygga who later said the murder was a sanctioned hit ordered by LAPD brass specifically Police Chief Bernard Parks. Lygga recanted this statement.
29. Sharitha Knight was Snoop Dogg's manager at time of Murder. Snoop began the narrative that Suge was responsible for Tupac’s murder. Snoop told Sheriff's that Suge Knight was responsible for Tupac's murder to throw investigators off of trail. This incident happened at the Universal Amphitheater on May 14th, 1998. The report is available on line.
30. Snoop had an altercation with Suge and Snoop just four days before the 1996 shooting. He rode back on the plane and constantly asked Tupac if he was going to Las Vegas. http://uproxx.com/smokingsection/2013/05/snoop-dogg-talks-tupac-beef/
31. Frank Alexander secret recordings of his telephone calls with Death Row Insiders and reporter Chuck Philips give insight into interworking of Death Row Records and their ties to Philips in creating false stories that are planted in the LA Times. Chuck Philips is dismissed when he is caught fabricating a story about the murder of Tupac Shakur thus solidifying the planting of stories to throw investigators and public opinion off of the trail of the real killers of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
32. Reggie Wright Jr. has ties through his father to Compton Police who attempted to steer the investigation toward a conclusion that Orlando Anderson was the shooter in the murder of Tupac Shakur. Orlando Anderson has an airtight alibi as Las Vegas has cameras everywhere. Cory Edwards tells of seeing Orlando Anderson at the bar about the time of the shooting. Las Vegas Police are handed Orlando Anderson by Compton Police during a raid. They are expected by Compton Police to arrest him as he is being handed up on a silver platter as the shooter. Las Vegas Police are not even interested in him because they already know about his airtight alibi. Compton Police also steered the investigation in the El Rey Theater murder of Kelly Jamerson and stopped LAPD investigators from issuing indictments.
33. Confession Letter to the murder of Tupac Shakur and attempt to murder Suge Knight is written in 1998 as dictated by Malcolm Patton (one of the shooters) and given to Fox 11 journalist Chris Blatchford. Chris Blatchford also talks to Malcolm Patton about the murder and provides a written statement on his conversations. That letter details that the conspiracy to commit murder began in Balboa Park clearly giving Los Angeles jurisdiction over this case.
34. On June 24, 2014 Russell Poole and RJ Bond met with four representatives from LAPD and provided them with a copy of the confession letter. They place special marking on the letter and receive assurances that the information will be investigated. Instead it is leaked. Six days after the letter appears on the Internet Suge Knight is shot in a West Hollywood Nightclub by assailants that yell, “You killed Tupac” as they fire shots at Knight.
35. The attempt to derail the Confession Letter is traced back to Reggie Wright Jr. Daryn Dupree (one of the cops that Russell and RJ gave the confession letter to) was Greg Kading's partner who is a close friend and apologist of Reggie Wright Jr. implicated in the letter as responsible for the murder of Tupac Shakur and the attempt on Suge Knight on September 7, 1996. Greg Kading was first person to talk about letter on Internet after it was given to LAPD. The confession letter, given to LAPD, had special markings that appeared on the Internet with those markings. The LAPD leak is clearly documented and is the subject of an Internal Affairs investigation CF NO. 14-001995. Keep in mind that Daryn Dupree illegally accessed LAPD computers and cloned cell phones and was reprimanded by LAPD and Greg Kading was responsible for overturning the George Torres-Ramos case by what the judge said was his "reckless disregard for the truth."
36. Confession Letter points to Reggie Wright Junior's Coup ‘d’état at Death Row Records and heist of Tupac Shakur's music.
37. Confession Letter points to Sharitha Knight complicit in plot.
38. David Kenner is also implicated by Confession Letter. Robert Soria says Kenner was at the meeting with gangs.
39. The book "Murder Rap" is released that pins the murders of Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace on the dead guys. The book is written by Greg Kading who is close to Reggie Wright Jr. - a suspect in the Biggie Smalls Killing and is now a suspect in the Tupac Shakur Killing. Greg Kading admits in the book that he had no access to the Christopher Wallace Civil Trial documents which excludes the most significant portion of the case. The book follows the same story line as the previously planted stories by LA Times journalist Chuck Philips. Greg Kading is also the former lead detective on the Christpher Wallace homicide and previous partner of Daryn Dupree. Dupree is the cop that leaked the confession letter to Kading. Kading had an additional motive to derail the confession letter -- his book and movie deal that would prove worthless if the case is solved in an alternate way. Kading contacts journalist Chris Blatchford and further attempts to derail the letter with Chris. His emails are very similar to the Chuck Philips secret tape recording made by Frank Alexander where instead of asking questions they attempt to sell a conclusion.
40. Mario Hammonds, Kevin Hackie, Psycho Mike, Kenny Boagni are all discredited without specific evidence even though many of their testimony is considered credible in other investigations including clearing LAPD officers in board of rights hearings for wrongdoing. They all provide specific evidence of LAPD Police involvement in murder of Christopher Wallace organized by Reggie Wright Jr.
41. First Civil trial in Estate of Christopher Wallace is declared a mistrial when evidence is suppressed by City of Los Angeles and LAPD specifically in wrongful death of Wallace. Evidence pointed to involvement of off duty police and Reggie Wright Jr. in murder of Christopher Wallace.
42. Second Civil trial in Estate of Christopher Wallace is dismissed with promise by City of Los Angeles and LAPD that they would redouble investigation. They tell lead investigator to shut down the case 24 hours after the settlement.
43. Confession letter indicates that Reggie Wright Jr. selected Lil' Half Dead to murder Tupac Shakur because of a previous interaction between Lil' Half Dead and Tupac where Tupac stole a song from him. Sampling and theft appear to have been a common practice in the early roots of Rap music.
44. Since the first draft of the book two witnesses have come forward. One of them states that she saw and talked to Rafael Perez on the night before the murder of Christopher Wallace and the night of the murder. She was afraid to come forward earlier because she was in fear of her life. We have also had a rapper tweet to us that he knows that Snoop had prior knowledge of the murder of Tupac Shakur before that murder happened.
45. According to the confession letter the conspiracy began in Los Angeles. One incident was documented as a gang summit in Balboa Park where Reggie Wright Jr. asked the gangs for permission to kill both Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight. Chris Blatchford tells that those behind this plot included David Kenner, Reggie Wright Jr., and Sharitha Knight. At that summit it was decided that Donald Smith aka Lil Half Dead, Malcolm Patton and Danny Patton aka Whiteboy would be the shooters.

MOTIVE:
Theft of Tupac's money and music as well as the control of Death Row Records was the major motive. Both Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight were in the crosshairs that night. Keep in mind that Death Row Records was worth over 500 million dollars at the time and Tupac had unreleased but completed songs in the vault that were worth an additional couple of hundred million dollars. Donald Smith aka Lil' Half Dead had the additional motive of the theft of his music by Tupac Shakur and had recently had his contract sold to Priority Records by Suge Knight. Danny Patton was paid $100,000 for the murder.

SUSPECTS:
Donald Smith aka Lil' Half Dead was the alleged triggerman on September 7th, 1996 responsible for killing Tupac Shakur. Smith is the cousin of Calvin Broadus aka Snoop Dogg. Smith was represented by Suge Knight and Death Row Records and his contract was sold off to Priority Records. He had given a demo tape to Tupac and two of his songs were stolen by Tupac according to the confession letter. Theft in the Hip-Hop world was a common practice at that time. Smith is affiliated with the Long Beach Crips. Snoop Dogg, Donald Smith's cousin, tells Sheriff's deputies on May 14, 1998 that Suge Knight was behind the murder of rapper Tupac Shakur. Was this to throw law enforcement off the trail of his cousin?
  
Malcolm Patton was the shooter that was supposed to take out Suge Knight. He shot twice and missed his target. He spoke to Chris Blatchford over the telephone and offered to provide him with details about guns, shooters, clothes, cars, and routes.

Danny Patton aka Whiteboy was allegedly paid $100,000 for the hit in the form of a cashier's check. Danny's gun jammed. Danny Patton is a Leuder's Park Piru Blood.

Reggie Wright Jr. allegedly attended the gang summit and paid the $100,000 bounty to Danny Patton. Reggie was responsible for disarming all of Tupac's bodyguards that night. He also attended every single meeting between witnesses and the Las Vegas Police. Reggie Wright Jr. worked previously for the Compton Jail and then the Compton Police. His father, Reggie Wright Sr. was in charge of the gang unit inside of Compton Police and was absorbed by the Sheriff's Department when it was learned that corruption existed within Compton PD. LAPD's Detective Fred Miller stated that Reggie Wright Jr. was known to control the drug trade in Compton. Reggie was also known to rob drug dealers of their drugs and money instead of busting them. He left the Compton Police on a worker's comp claim. Kevin Hackie claims he handed the weapon used in the Tupac killing to Reggie Wright two weeks before the killing. Hackie claims that the weapon had been ballistics tested a month before the killing and that ballistics test matched the ballistics of the Tupac Shakur murder. Reggie was at Club 662 at the time of the shooting. Michael Moore, a Tupac bodyguard, was next to Reggie Wright when the shooting happened and heard "Got 'em" coming over Reggie Wright's radio. He then heard someone he describes as "white" say, "don't say nothin' over the radio." "Got 'em" probably referred to Suge Knight and Tupac Shakur at the time of the shooting because with 13 bullets launched they really thought they "Got 'em." We have a tape of one of the security guards that worked for Reggie Wright Jr. stating that he had turned to the dark side and had the red carpet installed in his office indicating that he had accepted membership into the Bloods gang. The confession letter places Reggie Wright at the gang summit asking directly for permission to kill both Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight. The confession letter was given to LAPD and instead of being investigated it was leaked by a cop with direct ties back to Reggie Wright Jr.

Sharitha Knight was estranged from Suge Knight and was dating LAPD Officer Kevin Gaines at the time of Tupac's death. Kevin Gaines was killed by Officer Frank Lygga on March 18th 1997. Sharitha was the manager of Snoop Dogg. Snoop Dogg's trial for murder centered around evidence that disappeared from the LAPD evidence locker at the precinct that Kevin Gaines had access to. Sharitha would have inherited the shares of Death Row Records if Suge Knight had been killed on September 7th, 1996. One of our rapper followers reached out a month ago via Twitter and said that Snoop was warned by Sharitha not to come to Las Vegas that night. Snoop also asked Tupac over and over on September 4th, 1996 if he was attending the event in Las Vegas. Chris Blatchford says the shooters said Sharitha was behind the murder of Tupac Shakur and attempt on Suge Knight's life on September 7th 1996. While being managed by Sharitha Knight, Snoop tells Sheriff's deputies on May 1, 1998 that Suge Knight was behind the murder of rapper Tupac Shakur.

David Kenner was the attorney of record for Death Row Records, Suge Knight's attorney, Tupac's Attorney until he was fired August 27th, 1996 just days prior to Tupac being shot. Kenner was also Snoop Dogg's attorney who pulled a miracle defense when the evidence disappeared from the LAPD evidence locker. If Kenner was involved in the murder of Tupac and attempted murder of Suge Knight on September 7th, 1996 he would be representing Suge Knight currently with a severe conflict of interest. It could be that he is now reunited with Suge Knight to protect his own interests by steering any investigation into the murder of Tupac and attempted murder on Suge Knight. Kenner was the person that rented the home from Frank Longo that was owned by Larry Longo from the D.A.'s office. Kenner moved Suge into that house and caused a dime to be dropped on Suge. That conflict of interest was reported in the Los Angeles Times causing embarrassment to the D.A.'s office. David Kenner's representation of Tupac Shakur was a direct conflict of interest to his representation of Suge Knight and Death Row Records. Kenner could have faced disbarment for this conflict of interest if Tupac Shakur had lived.

Why Stage a Fight With Tupac?

by Michael Douglas Carlin

By now we have seen that Reggie Wright Sr., of the Compton Police, is on the MGM Surveillance Tape. He is supervising the interrogation of Orlando Anderson way outside of his jurisdiction. That indicates that the fight was staged but why?


Tupac had already fired his attorney David Kenner and according to Reggie Wright Jr., Security Manager of Death Row Records, he had been fired too. Reggie was playing games with the security that night and Suge told Reggie to knock it off and stop playing games but clearly Reggie's feelings were hurt.

This is pure speculation about the incidents that night. But it is all based upon things we know. There was a file in the Death Row Seizure by police that had Orlando Anderson's name on it. He was being paid for something, that much we know.
Reggie Wright Sr. as captured on the MGM Video

If Tupac was leaving Death Row Records, and we have lots of evidence of that, how does a record label let a cash-cow walk out the door? Truth is they employ all means to keep that cash-cow happy and recording on their label. When we look at Death Row Records tactics we know that Suge Knight used an artist's vulnerability with the law against him when it came to contract time. Snoop Dogg was signed a day after his arrest for murder. Tupac was signed while he was getting his twice daily cavity searches in Dannemora Prison. That contract was prepared September 15, 1995 and signed by Suge Knight and was signed by Tupac Shakur on September 16, 1995. Completion of the three albums called for in that contract were coming to a close and there was at best a renegotiation happening and at worst Tupac leaving the label.

The charade being played on Tupac was the staged fight at the MGM. The evidence is all there. You can see Reggie Wright Jr. on the tape hiding behind a woman from the cameras as he walks by. They were aware of the cameras and knew the fight would be caught on the surveillance tape. Reggie Wright Jr. leaves with Orlando Anderson at the conclusion of his interrogation. But again why stage the fight?
Last Photo of Tupac. Does he look happy? Suge was most likely renegotiating with Tupac as shots rang out.

Suge was known to use leverage to keep his artists in check. He used the legal defense of Snoop against him to keep Snoop generating revenue for Death Row Records. Snoop owed over five million dollars for that defense and was personally receiving very little of the money he earned in order to pay Death Row Records back for that debt.

Beyond the hand-written contract there was little to no leverage on Tupac. They needed to create leverage. The staged Orlando Anderson fight was their attempt to create that leverage.

In Got Your Back, Frank Alexander, Tupac's Bodyguard that night, writes, "When Pac snapped, he wasn't thinking about consequences, he never did with fighting. He just loved to fight and never cared about getting in trouble. All he wanted to do was get it out of his system." Fight night in Vegas would be a perfect opportunity to manipulate Tupac Shakur.

Trevon, who was next to Tupac at the MGM, whispered something into Tupac's ear and he took the bait and began the scuffle. At the time Tupac was out of prison pending an appeal. Getting involved in a scuffle would clearly send him back to prison if the tape made it to the authorities. There were no charges filed at the time and Orlando Anderson was released to go about his business - the people supervising the incident saw to that. The tape was probably collected by someone related to Kenner or Wright that night to use as leverage against Tupac later if he refused to come back to Death Row Records, Kenner, and Wright.

The MGM tape was entered into evidence in Suge's hearings on the probation violation by David Kenner not by the prosecution as is customary. In fact, all of the testimony came from Compton Police... even the statements acquired by Las Vegas Police were entered into evidence by the Compton Police headed up by Reggie Wright Sr. Frank Alexander's statement was of particular interest because what Kenner read to Alexander on the recorded telephone call is far different from the actual statement made by Alexander to Brent Becker. Somehow it was altered from the time Frank made it to the time it was entered into evidence. Alexander is warned to "not get subpoenaed" by Reggie Wright Jr. or it could have serious consequences to him and his family. When they couldn't kill Suge they were all working hard to send him away and he was not aware of his new "pawn" status until many years later.

Alexander again writes, "The fact was, the situations surrounding Tupac kept getting deeper and deeper all the time, and it became more and more apparent we were all in over our heads."

But most likely Suge was aware of the staged Orlando Anderson fight as a ploy to renegotiate with Tupac. Suge rushes Tupac away from the Mike Tyson fight for a reason. The Orlando Anderson incident happens and then they all get to the house of Suge for a reset. Tupac is asked to ride with Suge alone so they can discuss Tupac's future. Tupac is probably told he needs to remain at Death Row Records or that fight he was just caught in on videotape will be used by the authorities to send him back to prison. Suge probably told him that Kenner already had the tape and Tupac could determine his fate by playing along or he could be turned back over to the authorities who all had an axe to grind with Tupac. Look at the last image of Tupac. He doesn't look very happy. He looks like his entire life has been turned upside down.

What Suge and Tupac didn't know that night was that there was another plan at work that had them in the cross-hairs, in the same car, without any bodyguards, and without any guns. Both of them were set to die.

You can read more about this in Chaos Merchants and Tupac:187 - Russell Poole's final words on the murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls before his tragic death meeting with Sheriff's about the cases.

LAPD Leaks Confession Letter In Tupac’s Murder That Might Be Reason Suge Knight Shot?


By Michael Douglas Carlin

Update 7/23/2015: We have received confirmation that Suge Knight's shooting was directly tied to the attempted murder back in 1996. When they couldn't kill him they put him in prison. Now that he is out they want him dead. It probably wasn't the same shooters but it is definitely related. They picked the 1Oak and Compton as the venues to attack Suge Knight for a reason. You can guess what that reason is... All of Suge Knight's problems trace directly back to September 7, 1996 when he was supposed to be killed and Tupac was shot with wounds that led to his death 6 days later.

Update 8/27/2014: Some of the details of the shooting have been surfacing. It appears that Suge Knight was the target of the shooting. Keith Middlebrook said, "Two gang members showed up and accused Suge of killing Tupac and called him a traitor. I think they were two guys from Compton. They yelled at Suge, 'You killed Tupac.'"

This is consistent with the premise of this article. Why would the shooters mention Tupac? They were trying to tie Suge to the Tupac killing to steer the investigation away from those responsible for the murder. Clearly Suge would never put himself in the driver's seat when his passenger was going to be killed. This was a plot to kill both Tupac and Suge and to take Death Row Records and the associated revenue away. But Suge didn't die back then and he didn't die this time either.

The evidence seems to always point back to Compton. Who ran the Compton Police? Who has deep ties into the Compton Gangs? Quite possibly the shooter(s) in the most recent attempt to kill Suge Knight were the very same people that killed Tupac Shakur.

Tupacileaks has received 1000 pages of documents. On December 1st all of this will be released to the public. The pursuit of the truth is underway.

(originally posted on 8/24/2014)
I just want to begin by saying that I don’t know any of the details of the shooting last night. It seems that getting specific details has been tough from typical news sources.

But I do find it curious that on August 18th a website posts a confession letter, leaked by the Los Angeles Police Department, which gets 6000 views. The letter was given to LAPD by Russell Poole and RJ Bond two months ago and was leaked by someone in the department. The Confession Letter alleges that Reggie Wright Jr. gave information to gangs to kill both Tupac and Suge Knight on the night of September 7th 1996. Early this morning on the 24th, just six days after the letter leaks publicly, Suge Knight is allegedly shot six times.

For those of you that don’t know the history I will recap. Suge Knight and Tupac are shot while driving from Suge Knight’s home in Las Vegas to Club 662 on the night of September 7th 1996. Suge is injured in the shooting but walks away. Tupac is shot four times and is given a 50%/50% chance of survival but is only able to hold on for a few days. He dies on September 13, 1996. Michael Moore, a former Tupac bodyguard, tells of standing right next to Reggie Wright at the time of the shooting and hearing, “Got ‘em” come over Wright’s radio. If the confession letter is right and this was an attempt on Suge’s life, there would have to be a cover-up. People that knew about the plot would have to be silenced or killed.

When you look at the shootings in the immediate aftermath of the Tupac slaying, they mostly involved people that might have known something about the murder from Yafeu Fula to Orlando Anderson and many in-between. When you look at the next wave of killings just before Suge was released from prison it involved Suge's inner-circle: Buntry, Heron, Poochie, and Hen Dog. Seems that someone was trying to make sure that Suge was unable to pull together muscle to resume his reign.

If there is any truth to the confession letter the killing of Tupac and attempt on Suge’s life may have been kept from Suge for years. Six days ago a puzzle piece emerged that says Suge was in the crosshairs the night Tupac was murdered. In the immediate aftermath of the Shakur killing and Knight’s incarceration for a probation violation, there was total chaos at Death Row Records. Equipment, furniture, motorcycles, cars, and master tapes were disappearing. Once Reggie Wright was put in charge all of the chaos ended.

Details of the shooting last night are not yet available I would hope that the confession letter would be fully investigated by law enforcement. I would also hope that all relevant documents can be released to the public instead of leaked to stall the investigation.

            There is a rash of violence tied to Tupac’s murder including the slaying of Biggie Smalls on March 9, 1997. The similarity of the murders is compelling. There are two differences that stand out. The Tupac slaying was a wide pattern of bullets (bullets hit all over the car) with regular bullets being used. The Biggie killing is the same type of drive-by with a relatively tight pattern (bullets hit Biggie’s door) and armor-piercing GECO rounds used seeming to indicate that this hit was done professionally. The shootings are identical except for an experience modification. If the same people planned both murders, they would have learned something valuable from Tupac’s killing substituting a shooter that spent time shooting for accuracy as well as adding armor piercing ammunition to better pierce the car.

The family of Biggie Smalls sued LAPD and the City of Los Angeles claiming that LAPD officers participated in the killing of Biggie Smalls. A mistrial was declared when it was learned that thousands of documents had been withheld in the discovery process by LAPD. Now LAPD has leaked a document that could be the Rosetta stone to solving the case.

            Here is the error-ridden leaked confession letter: There was a major problem with demo stilling. 2 song’s that 2 pac came out with were written by XXXXXXXXX. XXXXXXXX was a up and coming rap singer. He gave 4 demo’s to 2 pac to look over, because he meat 2 pac at the bonavenchur Hotel. 2 pac promised that he would look over the demo’s. XXXXXXXXX never heard from 2 pac, and 3 months later, after 2 pac revised the demo’s the song brenda’s got a baby was released. Brenda’s got a baby was written by XXXXXXXXX. XXXXXXX let that slide. But he continued to go to different recording studios. Finally in 94 XXXXXXXX started making money. And he was sponsord mostly by Sh Night. What Night did not know was that XXXXXXXX found out that he was being sold to Priority 1. There was a meeting in Reno. And XXXXXXX and 2 pac had dispute about song’s that were taken. XXXXXXXX was beaten down by 2 pac Soldiers. As day’s went by there was meeting’s with ICG – gear gang – ghost town – front street – 52 - A Try hoover’s - and South Park, A bounty was put on 2 pac and Night. YYYYYYYY. gave Info where 2 pac was going to be. There was 6 different barricades that no matter what would of happened no one would of made it out. I was the shooter that was told to take Night out. XXXXXXXX was the one that took 2 pac out. As for gun that was used, will be dropped off at the security booth at fox 11. please do not have stop or talk to one of my droppin off the gun.

Tell X-con how you whant it deliverd. I don’t whant to put it in a box cause I don’t whant you thinking it’s a bomb. If you need any other Info, give X-con a list so I can meet him were I feel I am in more control. If you would like, I can call you on a safe number and give you details of the clothing, cars, streets, and discribe any-thing you need to know to prove that I was there, the night 2 Pac tryed to escape, like a little pee-on bitch.

If we want this case solved I think the public needs to participate in getting to the bottom of the killings. I would invite anyone that has any documents that relate to the Tupac or Biggie killings to submit them to me and we can release them all on December 1st 2014 simultaneously in what what I am going to call Tupacileaks. LAPD withheld documents in the civil trial and started the leaking with this confession letter… let’s all get behind solving the case by putting together the dots and pouring through the documents. There are hundreds of public and private records – court cases, interviews, videotapes, and photographs. Let’s put them all in one place and release them on December 1st 2014. The blood of those murdered demand justice.
