Six veteran homicide detectives are leading a new police task force investigating the unsolved 1997 killing of rap star Notorious B.I.G.

The new probe comes in the face of a wrongful death (http://www.srch-results.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=77&k=wrongful%20death) lawsuit filed by the rapper's mother, Voletta Wallace, and other relatives, who claim rogue police officers were involved in the killing, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

The lawsuit filed by the Wallace family ended in a mistrial last year when it was discovered that a police detective intentionally hid statements by a jailhouse informant linking the killing to two former officers.

A judge ordered the city to pay $1.1 million in legal fees and other expenses to the rapper's family. A new trial was set for early next year.

There was no new evidence that prompted the formation of the task force.

But evidence discovered by the task force could help the city in its argument against the family's claims.

B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace, was 24 when he was gunned down March 9, 1997, while leaving a party at a Los Angeles museum. The New York rapper, also known as Biggie Smalls, was one of the most influential hip-hop (http://www.srch-results.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=77&k=hip%20hop) artists of the 1990s.

who claim rogue police officers were involved in the killing


...


they have sketches of the shooter that match a policeman dead on. when they raided the cops house for another crime he was involved in, they found a black chevy impala, matching the description of the vehicle, and they found like a shrine to Tupac.....

for me its obvious. The dude worshiped pac, pac was killed, suge put the hit out, and he killed BIG.

Unfortunately theyll probably never resolve this Tupac-Biggie murder thing.Honestly they need to turn this over to one of them Forensic cop shows.They seem to be able to solve alot of stuff.

Suge owed Pac like $10 million at the time of his death, and there were rumors that Pac would leave Death Row.

Suge reportedly started that fight with Anderson in the lobby, probably to make Pac's hit look like gang retaliation. Biggie was killed to make both murders look like the culmination of the East Coast/West Coast rivalry.

There is a good DVD called "Biggie and Tupac" (or something like that) where the LAPD detective who pretty much solved Biggie's murder (which you talked about before), throws out a lot of evidence that Knight was behind both murders.

Plus, I still wonder how Suge was never hit in the ambush and about his "Absolutely NOT" response to the question of if he knew who murdered Tupac, would he tell police.

Suge didnt owe pac any money, Suge payed for Pac to get out of prison, and Pac let it known that he owed Suge money...and Pac couldnt leave death row, he had a contract with them for A LOT of albums..even so, i dont think Suge would of killed pac like that.

Also, Suge was hit by a bullet to the head, Suge made the right decision to say he wouldnt snitch on anyone, he would of lost a huge street respect for him, which he despreatly needed. Street justice, thats what he handled it with.

I mean, no one is sure, so you could be right on everything, but i dont believe so....

Suge, in fact, owed Tupac a considerable amount of money, mainly royalties. Pac was pressing to get paid and was planning to leave Death Row after payment was complete. Suge Knight's record has suggested that he is capable and willing to murder just about anyone. He certainly didn't need any more street cred, considering that he has a history of strongarming others while plenty of rappers (Pac included) exaggerate their "thug" lifestyles.

Also, Suge was allegedly grazed by a bullet. This is considered dubious considering Suge's claim that "the bullet is still stuck in my brain."

i actually saw this on some investigational report or something and was really shocked to hear all the evidence they had on the dude in the bow tie (ok really who wears a bow tie!!!) and did nothing. something is screwy and always has been in the lapd

As a former law enforcement officer all I can say is this a big waste of manpower. Gangbangers kill each other all the time....do they deserve any more attention or manpower to solve who killed Biggie, just because he was famous rapper?? :rolleyes:

pretty touchy these days roots?

I'm sure pac and Bigs where a large part of your adolescence and you still probably admire them. I can see the point on both sides, you can make the argument that they had a small amount of redeming value to the non fans of rap music... But should the families of these guys go without knowing who killed there loved ones?

I think if you look at it in that aspect it's fair to any persons family. Shoot we pay our taxes, let them do there jobs, and if it mean re-opening the case, then so be it!

I have to say this strikes me as a shocking waste of funding and resources, if all unsolved murders got this treatment the police force would be over budget in a matter of months

unsolved murders get reopened all the time. not to mention in this case there were obvious flaws in the original investigation.
