Tupac's Killer Finally Revealed In New Netflix Doc

Ex-gang member Duane Keith Davis has claimed that he knows exactly who killed Tupac in new Netflix series Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & The Notorious B.I.G.

Davis, who is also known as Keffe D, is the uncle of number one suspect Orlando 'Baby Lane' Anderson, and claims that he was present in the car in Las Vegas from which the gunshots that killed Tupac were fired.

The rapper was killed after a drive-by shooting 22 years ago whilst he drove through the Nevada city with the boss of his record label, Suge Knight.

At about 11:15pm with the car parked at a red traffic light, a white Cadillac car pulled up alongside and opened fire. Tupac was hit four times and died in hospital of his injuries some days later. Nobody has ever been arrested for the murder.

Keffe D's confession that he knows what happened comes as a new Netflix series entitled Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & The Notorious B.I.G. has been released.

Ex-LAPD cop Greg Kading heard Keffe's alleged confession once he knew that he had legal immunity from prosecution. Keffe said that he had nothing to lose because he had cancer and wanted the truth to be out.

Keffe said his nephew was out for revenge after he had apparently been attacked by the late rapper in the lobby of a Las Vegas casino - after Anderson had stolen a medallion from one of Tupac's entourage.

When they were in the car, Keffe said he was sat in the front passenger seat alongside driver Terrence 'T-Brown' Brown, while DeAndre 'Dre' Smith and Anderson were sitting behind.

According to The Sun, Keffe then detailed the killing, saying: "I gave it to Dre and Dre was like 'no, no, no' and Lane was like - popped the dudes.

"He leaned over and rolled down the window and popped them."

The Daily Star reports that Kyle Long, the documentary's executive producer, has called on the Las Vegas Police Department to speak to Keefe D following his confession.

He said: "He went live on television and confessed to being an accessory to murder and the Las Vegas PD, as far as I know, is doing nothing about it.

"I just think it's outrageous."

Recently, US based journalists tried to get the police to release documents relating to the case, but the Las Vegas police force said reveal that the investigation is still ongoing, and therefore they would not be releasing any documents pertaining to the case.

The Center for Investigative Reporting said that the case notes are of 'historical importance' and therefore should be made public.
