Notorious BIG murder investigation has new leads

The Notorious B.I.G.

No, this is not a repeat from 1997.  This story, posted by CNN in January of 2011, notes that the LAPD somehow has new leads after many, many years of failure in catching anyone for Biggie’s murder.

The CNN story, while interesting, really offered nothing new on the crime and really no major detials of the big break.  The gist of the article is in the excerpt below:

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.”

One of the officers Poole said was involved is David Mack, who was sent to prison for robbing a bank in 1997, the same year Wallace was killed.

Poole said Mack owned the same type of car driven by the gunman who shot Wallace, and Poole said a friend of Mack’s resembles a police sketch of the shooter.

Basically conjecture and conspiracy theories at this point.  Still, at least something is starting to happen.  Now in another 20 years they may get around to looking into Tupac’s murder too.
