Fingers keep pointing in the same direction in the cases of the unsovled murders of rap stars Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. However, former Los Angeles Police Department detective Greg Kading claims to know exactly who the people behind the murders are but even more surprisingly, he claims that the LAPD has all of the evidence under lock and key.
Kading, an LAPD detective who was on the Tupac and Biggie investigation teams, says that he made copies of all audio recordings acquired during the investigation including alleged confessions from the key witnesses. According to LA Weekly, Kading will reveal in his upcoming book Murder Rap, that Keffe D, confessed in 2008 that he witnessed his nephew, the now-deceased Orlando Anderson, kill Shakur on orders from Sean "Diddy" Combs. Keffe went on record in order to receive clemency in pending cases against him, which was granted on the condition that none of his statements turned out to be false- including the one about Shakur's murder.
Kading also uses the alias "Theresa Swann" in his book, as a moniker for a close business associate and former longtime lover of Suge Knight's who admits that the Death Row leader commissioned the death of Biggie as a revenge killing.
Diddy, who sued the LA Times after they were forced to recant a 2008 story implicating him in the murder of Tupac Shakur, predictably dismissed Kading's claims. "This story is pure fiction and completely ridiculous," he told LA Weekly in an e-mail. Knight has yet to respond.
Murder Rap is due in stores on October 4.
