On Friday, Nevada authorities reportedly made an arrest in the unsolved 1996 murder of rapper Tupac Shakur.
Shakur, 25, was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting on the Las Vegas Strip. Two officials told the Associated Press that Duane “Keffe D” Davis, 60, the uncle of the suspected shooter, Orlando Anderson, was arrested two months after his wife’s home in Henderson.
CrimeOnline’s previous coverage of that raid can be read here.
Anderson, who was a rival of Tupac’s, died in an unrelated shooting two years after Shakur was fatally shot on the Las Vegas Strip in 1996. Davis said in a 2018 documentary “Unsolved: The Tupac and Biggie Murders” that he was in the car with the gunman.
At the time of the raid in July, police reportedly seized computers, a phone and hard drive, a Vibe magazine featuring Shakur, possible marijuana, documents related to a documentary, and photographs. Previous reports indicated that Davis had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in a drug case.
Many witnesses were party to Tupac’s shooting death, but the investigation went cold as witnesses refused to speak to law enforcement. Though Davis has spoken publicly about Tupac’s murder, he has never named the gunman.
