US police have confirmed that they are still working on the investigation into the unsolved murder of Tupac Shakur.
Nevada agents confirmed that they had issued a search warrant earlier this week and had investigated a home in the Henderson neighborhood, the same area where the rapper was shot to death in September 1996.
Although details are still scarce, it has been confirmed that the home is less than 20 miles from the Las Vegas strip where Shakur was shot.
The artist – considered one of the most famous and influential rappers of all time – was shot four times in his car while waiting at a red light, and died in hospital the following week. I was 25 years old.
“LVMPD can confirm that a search warrant was served in Henderson, Nevada on July 17, 2023, as part of the ongoing investigation into the murder of Tupac Shakur,” read a statement released by Las Vegas police (via BBC). “We will have no further comment at this time.”
At the time of writing this report, no one has been arrested in connection with the crime, which occurred 27 years ago, and no suspects are in custody.
Jason Johansson, a lieutenant with the Las Vegas Police Department, confirmed that active efforts have also been made to find the people who shot Shakur. “It’s an unresolved situation and I hope one day we can change that,” he told the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Shakur – known as 2Pac – appeared for the first time in the world of music in 1991, when his first album “2Pacalypse Now” was released, in which he shed light on the social problems he saw in the United States, such as racism, poverty, police. violence and teenage pregnancy.
Later, he would sell 75 million records worldwide and hit the charts with songs like “Hit ‘Em Up,” “California Love,” “Changes,” and “All Eyez On Me.”
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, more than twenty years after his death.
In other Tupac news, last month it was reported that Tupac’s biological father, Billy Garland, was disappointed in the recent Hulu docu-series Dear Mama: The Saga of Afeni & Tupac Shakur.
“Allen Hughes [director] He asked me to do an interview… He didn’t tell me anything about His Mom. He didn’t tell me too much about anything, except Tupac… I denied it at first,” he said. “I didn’t like it. [Dear Mama], to do the truth. It was more about something else than [era] about Tupac.”
Additionally, Tupac’s sister responded to comments that compared Tupac to Donald Trump, saying the narratives were “blasphemous.”
