The 1996 murder case of rapper Tupac Shakur has been reignited with new investigative efforts by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Recent actions include a search warrant executed at a home connected to Duane ‘Keffe D' Davis and the collection of multiple computers, a cellphone, and a hard drive, among other items.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's renewed focus on the Tupac Shakur case has led to a search warrant being executed at a home in Henderson, Nevada. The property is linked to Duane “Keffe D” Davis, the uncle of Orlando Anderson, a suspect in Shakur's murder who died two years after the rapper in an unrelated gang shooting. According to ABC News, the warrant led to the collection of multiple computers, a phone, a Vibe magazine featuring Shakur, and several .40-caliber bullets. Davis' 2019 memoir, “Compton Street Legend,” was also collected.
In a recent development, a YouTube video has reported that the Las Vegas Police have uncovered new evidence that could potentially link Sean “Diddy” Combs to Tupac Shakur's murder. This evidence includes an iPhone, several laptops, a Vibe magazine about Shakur, photographs, and bullets that may match those used in the fatal shooting. The video also discusses rumors that Diddy hired a hitman to execute Shakur, something Diddy has consistently denied. Retired LAPD officer Greg Kading directly accused Sean Diddy Combs of masterminding Tupac Shakur's fatal shooting in his documentary.
“If he would have gave him [Keffe D] the money, it had been a murder for hire, and Puffy be locked up,” said an officer, citing information from a trustworthy source in the YouTube video.
The case has even reached other industry giants such as Eminem, who referenced the controversy in his music. “Eminem's claim in his track ‘Kill Shot' that Sean Diddy Combs ordered Tupac Shakur's death later dismissed as a joke added fuel to the fire of controversy surrounding the case.”
Adding to the complexity of the case, The Guardian reports that residents of the Henderson neighborhood identified the property where they said they saw officers detain two people while investigators searched the home. The case is being presented to a grand jury in Las Vegas, according to a person with direct knowledge of the investigation who was not authorized to speak publicly. The timing and results of those proceedings remain unclear.
Davis had previously admitted to being in the front seat of the Cadillac from which the shots were fired, implicating his nephew Orlando Anderson, who was in the back seat. Davis has been living under an active arrest warrant since July 2022 for failing to appear in court on a drug charge.
The revived investigation into Tupac Shakur's murder has rekindled public interest and speculation. While the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has not made any arrests, the new evidence and the convening of a grand jury indicate that the case is far from closed. With key figures like Sean “Diddy” Combs and Duane “Keffe D” Davis under renewed scrutiny, the quest for justice in Tupac Shakur's murder seems to be gaining momentum.
As the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reopens the nearly three-decade-old case of Tupac Shakur's murder, new evidence and key figures are coming under scrutiny. The convening of a grand jury and the execution of a search warrant at a home linked to Duane “Keffe D” Davis signal that the case is far from closed. With public interest reignited and potential new leads involving Sean “Diddy” Combs, the quest for justice in one of the most high-profile unsolved murders in the music industry appears to be gaining momentum.
