It's been more than 20 years since gangster rapper Tupac Shakur was fatally killed in a drive-by shooting. A U.S. author is making a documentary and claims to have the names of Tupac's killers. He says the evidence he has will clear the name of rapper Suge Knight, who was previously suspected of being involved in the shooting.
RJ Bond claims he has a 'confession letter' that was allegedly written by one of the gunmen. He says a TV journalist obtained the letter from someone named 'Danny', and Bond got it from the journalist.
The letter has not been verified as authentic. The letter, by 'Danny', reads, 'I was the shooter that was told to take [K]night out.
The night of the shooting, Tupac was attending a fight in Las Vegas with Death Row Records boss Suge Knight. Knight was in the Cadillac with Tupac during the attack. Tupac had been standing up through the sun roof to talk to a group of women while the car was stopped at a light, then the shooter opened fired, hitting the rapper in the chest twice, in the arm and in the leg.
Tupac died six days after the shooting. Knight survived, and has been suspected of being involved in the shooting ever since. He wasn't charged with Tupac's murder, but he is on death row since 2015 due to a more recent fatal hit and run.
Knight has always held that Tupac survived the shooting and took the opportunity to fake his own death. He claims he never saw a body.
"You know he's somewhere smoking a Cuban cigar on the islands," Knight reportedly said in 2014.
Danny implicates at least two other people, but in the only released form of the letter, the names have been redacted. He also promised to drop off the murder weapon at a security booth at Fox 11.
