New Tupac $100K Reward Offered For Information Connected To Rapper’s Killer

The new reward comes after the 26th anniversary of the rapper’s death.

The 1996 murder of rapper Tupac Shakur still remains a cold case but a new reward is being offered to anyone who has information that can lead to an arrest of the shooter.

The $100,000 reward comes after the 26th anniversary of the “Hit Em Up” artist's death, from two podcasts, The Problem Solver Show and Action Junkeez Podcast who have partnered together in the hopes that there can be a break in the case.

Tupac was ​​shot on September 7, 1996, at the intersection of East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane in Sin City where he attended a Mike Tyson boxing match at the MGM Grand earlier in the evening. He would later die from his injuries on Sept. 13 at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.

Pac’s murder case has been unresolved however, more than 20 years ago Duane "Keffe D" Davis reportedly confessed about his role in the rapper’s killing to the Los Angeles Police Department, according to KCAL. Former LAPD homicide detective, Greg Kading, who investigated Shakur's death, said Keffe D should have been arrested.

The CBS outlet previously reported that Keffe D confirmed that his nephew, Orlando Anderson, had shot Shakur after the rapper and his Death Row entourage beat Anderson at the MGM Grand hotel.

Kading further added to the claims in his 2011 book Murder Rap, where he says Keffe D said he passed the gun to Anderson.

Anderson was shot and killed in a car wash shootout in May 1998.

Anyone with any information surrounding ‘Pac’s death has been asked to contact The Problem Solver Show at 702-999-1111. An anonymous hotline is also available 1-833-TIPSCASH.
