Police in Las Vegas have taken a man into custody in relation to the nearly 30-year-old murder of Tupac Shakur.
According to a BBC story spotted by 1Family RAdio, the identity of the hip-hop legend’s killer has long remained a mystery. He was tragically murdered in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996.
Significant progress has been made in the unsolved murder case of hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur after 27 years, which has both perplexed detectives and captured the public’s attention.
Early on Friday, Duane “Keffe D” Davis was brought into custody. The 60-year-old has been charged with murder with the use of a dangerous weapon by a grand jury in Nevada.
Davis, a suspect who has been on investigators’ radar for some time, has publicly admitted to being in the Cadillac during the September 1996 drive-by shooting that killed Shakur. Davis described his role in “Compton Street Legend,” his memoir.
Several computers, a phone, a hard drive, a vibe magazine showing Tupac Shakur, 40-caliber bullets, picture-filled containers, and a copy of Davis’ 2019 memoir were among the things taken during the raid that led to the arrest.
In the book, Davis made it known that he had made the decision to talk about Shakur’s 2010 murder during a private meeting with federal and local officials. He made this revelation at the age of 46, when he was facing potential life imprisonment for narcotics charges.
“They promised they would shred the indictment and stop the grand jury if I helped them out,’’ he wrote in his memoir.
Shakur was tragically shot in the neighborhood of the Las Vegas Strip, and Davis has claimed to be one of the few remaining witnesses to the incident.
