Tupac Shakur’s family is finally getting justice after 27 years of waiting.
“Keffe D” Davis aged 60 has been apprehended in Las Vegas in connection with the 1996 fatal shooting of 2Pac, the US police announced on Friday.
This is the first ever arrest in the investigation into ‘Pac’s murder, which has remain unsolved for 27 years.
Davis, has long claimed that he was inside the car from which the bullets that killed ‘Pac were fired.
The drive-by shooting took place one block from the Las Vegas Strip on Sept. 7, 1996.
In a 2018 interview, Davis claimed that his nephew, Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, was one of two people sitting in the backseat of the car, the area from which the shots were let off.
Hours before the shooting, 2Pac and his entourage had gotten into a scuffle with Anderson in the lobby of the MGM Grand, which hosted the Mike Tyson vs. Bruce Seldon fight.
Anderson, a member of the South Side Compton Crips, was alleged to have stolen the chain of a Death Row Records affiliate months earlier.
He was identified as a suspect in the case, but was never arrested or charged. He was killed in an unreleased gang shooting in 1998.
In July, the home of Davis’s wife, Paula Clemons, was raided by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department over items “concerning the murder of Tupac Shakur.”
In the raid, police confiscated multiple computers, a cellphone, a hard drive, a Vibe magazine that featured 2Pac, several .40-caliber bullets, two “tubs containing photographs,” and a copy of Keefe D’s 2019 memoir, Compton Street Legend. Henderson home.
Homicide detectives in Las Vegas have kept the forensic evidence from the Shakur murder, including bullets and clothing, in secure storage for 26 years, with full laboratory analysis of shells, bullets, and gunpowder from the murder scene.
According to the police source, “Microfibers or residues from the weapon or the bullet could prove to be a link. There is no information yet on the history of the bullets, how old they are or their significance. And it will take some time to assess how the bullets play a role in this case. The homicide detectives leading the case are keeping everything as secretive as possible with only the district attorney’s office learning about developments. No pun intended, it is a long shot that the bullets will be the ones from 1996.”
The .40 Glock that was used in the Tupac murder was never recovered. However, Keefe D has openly admitted on several occasions that he handed the gun to his nephew Orlando Anderson that he used to shoot Tupac on September 7, 1996.
Officer Chris Carroll, one of the first responders to the scene where Pac was shot in 1996, sat with The Art of Dialogue and delivered more information about Keefe’s connection.
After reiterating that Keefe D has long said he had a role in the murder, Carroll revealed he may also have been selling items connected to the crime.
“I’ve heard rumors that he even had sold some items that he told people were there that night,” Carroll said. “Whether that’s BS or not, I don’t know, but to think that not only is he admitting to being part of a murder but now he’s going to profit from the whole deal?”
