Yesterday a report surfaced that former CEO of Death Row Records Suge Knight finally revealed who shot and killed rapper Tupac Shakur. The report comes after 21 years and tons of conspiracy theory involving the Illuminati. According to The Source, the report claimed that Knight’s attorney, Thaddeus Culpepper, said Knight has known who was responsible for the shooting for quite some time. The report claimed that Culpepper via signed affidavit said Knight knew “for many years that Reggie Wright Jr. and his ex-wife Sharitha were behind the murder of Tupac and attempted murder of Knight”.
The report claimed that Wright Jr. and Knights ex-wife Sharitha conspired to kill Knight in order to take control of Death Row Records. This claim was even backed by former LAPD Detective Russell Poole, who investigated the murder. However, it was all too good to be true. According to Culpepper, that information is false. He even goes as far as calling it “fake news.” Per The Wrap.
“Very recently, a press release was issued stating that Attorney Thaddeus J. Culpepper wrote and signed an affidavit regarding the assassination of Tupac Shakur,” Culpepper said. “The writers of the press release also state that the alleged affidavit contains statements from Suge Knight. The press release cites no author. As counsel for Mr. Knight, my duty is to assist him in proving his innocence in his present cases,” continues Culpepper. “I have never made any official statement regarding Tupac Shakur, nor have I made any statements on my client’s behalf regarding Mr. Shakur, written or otherwise. Articles relying on this unattributed press release are without merit. [T]hat affidavit is fake news.”
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like we are any closer to finding out who murdered the legendary rapper. It would be nice to see one of the most iconic murder mysteries solved and put to rest. According to Nevada Code Section 171.080 et seq. murder is a felony and there is no statute of limitations. As such, Tupac’s killer could still face punishment via the law.
If this report is untrue, the writer could face a potential slander lawsuit. However, it doesn’t look as though Culpepper has any interest in pursuing that course of action at the moment. His client is currently serving jail time for murder and attempted murder charges stemming back from 2015, where he was involved in a hit and run incident.
