Tupac’s music lives on, even though nearly three decades have passed since his death. There are also questions about what happened the day he died and who might have shot him. Investigators in the case are looking for new leads. They searched a house in the suburbs of Las Vegas.
He was murdered 27 years ago, and his death remains unsolved to this day, but perhaps the police are getting closer to the truth and who killed Tupac.
“This is a case that has remained unresolved and I hope that one day we will change that,” said Las Vegas Police Lieutenant Jason Johansson.
Nearly three decades after the death of one of history’s most influential rappers, investigators searched a home in Henderson, Nevada. According to witnesses, around 10 p.m. on Monday, several cars of the Las Vegas metropolitan police arrived at the scene.
– I am surprised. They’re good neighbors. I don’t know them personally, but I haven’t had any major problems with them either, says Zachary Perez, a Henderson resident.
The house is said to belong to Duane Keith Davis, a member of the California East Coast gang. It was the dispute with the gang that was supposed to be the reason for the murder of the artist. – This theory about Davis’s connection to Tupac’s death has been around for years and nobody looked at it. Where have the services been all these years? This is one of the puzzles. It’s been almost 30 years, points out Mopreme Shakur, Tupac Shakur’s half-brother.
The property is located 25 kilometers from Las Vegas. It was there on September 7, 1996, a native of New York, Tupac Shakur died. He came to one of the hotels to see his friend Mike Tyson’s boxing fight. As he was leaving the party in his car, 12 shots were fired at him. Five bullets wounded the rapper. No one has ever been charged in the case.
– My family is traumatized, my sister, my daughter. We are all traumatized. Family members are dying waiting for something to happen about it, for someone to take action.
Tupac Shakur has sold 75 million records worldwide in just a 5-year career. Rolling Stone magazine ranked him 86th among the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. In June of that year, a star with his name was unveiled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“Tupac has always been destined for something great, and as his younger sister, I had the great privilege of seeing him up close and in all his glory. His star in the sky will shine a little brighter today, because he made us all very proud of him again – said Sekyiwa “Set” Shakur, the sister of the murdered rapper, at the ceremony.
Tupac studied acting, poetry, jazz and ballet. Although born in New York, he spent his entire childhood in California. The musician had problems with the law. He was convicted, inter alia, of sexual abuse, for which he served 9 months in prison.
