Ex-Gang Member 'Reveals Tupac Murder Details' On Camera In Netflix Show

An ex-gang member who claims he was present during the 1996 murder of rapper Tupac Shakur has spoken out on camera about the killing:

Duane Keith Davis - also known as Keffe D - is the uncle of number one suspect Orlando Anderson and claims that he was present in the car in Las Vegas from which the gunshots that killed 2pac 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, turned writer 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.

According to reports in The Daily Star, he said: "I was a Compton kingpin, drug dealer, I'm the only one alive who can really tell you story about the Tupac killing,

"People have been pursuing me for 20 years, I'm coming out now because I have cancer. And I have nothing else to lose. All I care about now is the truth."

He went on to explain that his nephew, Anderson, was involved in a fight with Tupac, and went out to seek revenge.

After all of his shocking revelations, Davis did eventually refuse to name the actual killer. He said that because of his loyalty and 'street code' he couldn't grass the killer up, but he did say 'it just came from the backseat, bro'.

In the back seats of the car that night was Anderson, and DeAndre 'Dre' Smith.

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.
