Police found gun used in Tupac's murder, tested, then lost it

Police found gun used in Tupac's murder, tested, then lost it

The mysterious death of rapper Tupac Shakur has been shrouded in mystery for decades.However, now there's some more info to add to the conversation - and it's juicy stuff, because it suggests there was a police cover-up in the investigation. However, a federal prosecutor halted its transfer back to Las Vegas police, who oversaw the case after Pac was killed on Las Vegas grounds, out of fear that the weapon's discovery might tip off any conspirators involved in his death.

Tupac Shakur was gunned down in Las Vegas over 21 years ago.

The documentary then shows that in 2006, Deputy T. Brennan discovered that the address where the handgun had been found matched that of a girlfriend of a prominent Crip member. A&E has stated they reached out to LVPD, and some officers said they never received the weapon, while others are not sure. Numerous people - including Notorious BIG - were implicated in the death.

But the identity of the chart-topper's killer has remained a mystery for more than 20 years.

"They found a.40 caliber pistol".

In 1995, Tupac claimed that Biggie knew of a planned robbery that had resulted in Tupac being shot and losing valuable jewelry. But somehow, between then and now, law enforcement seems to have lost track of it.

Reggie Wright Jnr, who has been always been linked to claims he was involved in the shooting of Tupac, laughed off the claims he had anything to do with it. Shakur was fighting with an alleged Crips member the night of his murder, according to the New York Daily News.

It claimed that Shakur and several of their entourage had beaten up Anderson the same day as the shooting.

Las Vegas cops discounted the beating from their investigation, failed to follow up on claims by one of Tupac's friends that he witnessed the shooting, and didn't chase up a witness who may have seen the culprit's auto, the LA Times reported. The murder weapon was actually found in a Compton backyard a couple of years later, but cops don't know where it is right now. This is America. We found Bin Laden'.

The final episode of the documentary series airs on A&E on Tuesday (19Dec17).
