Tupac’s Siblings Skeptical of New Vegas Homicide Probe

Tupac's Siblings Skeptical of New Vegas Homicide Probe

Two of Tupac Shakur’s siblings, Sekyiwa and Mopreme Shakur, have cast skepticism on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s renewed investigation into the 1996 murder of the iconic rap artist on the Las Vegas Strip. In a recent TMZ interview, both siblings voiced their doubts about the investigation’s potential outcomes.

Questioning the Investigation’s Viability

Sekyiwa, Tupac’s half-sister, stated, “Unless he just never cleaned up for 30 years,” expressing her uncertainty about the investigation’s ability to yield results. She emphasized the challenges of revisiting events from three decades ago, especially when her own life involved raising two children to adulthood during that time. She questioned how authorities could unearth crucial evidence after such a prolonged period, saying, “I don’t know how they could find something 30 years later.”

New Leads and the Search at a Local Residence

As part of the investigation’s revival, Las Vegas police conducted a search at a residence a few miles from the Strip in July. The house belonged to Paula Clemons and her husband, Duane Keith Davis, also known as “Keffe D,” a former member of the Crips gang. Davis was the uncle of Orlando Anderson, long suspected of being Shakur’s killer, who died in a gang-related shooting in 1998. During the search, authorities confiscated various items, including electronics, books, bullets, and other items that they believed could link Davis to the murder.

One of the notable items among the seized belongings was a book titled “Compton Street Legend: Notorious Keffe D’s Street-Level Accounts of Tupac and Biggie Murders, Death Row Origins, Suge Knight, Puffy Combs, and Crooked Cops.” Self-published in 2019 by Davis and his co-writer, Yusuf Jah, the book contains Davis’s admission that he drove Anderson in the white Cadillac from which the fatal shots were fired at Shakur and Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight on September 7, 1996.

Questions Surrounding the Timing of the Investigation

The decision of Las Vegas police to pursue this lead at this particular time remains shrouded in mystery, as they have not provided any public comments about the case. Mopreme, Tupac’s stepbrother and a rapper himself, raised concerns about the timing, noting that authorities only approached him after he had granted an interview to CNN about the reopened investigation.

Both Sekyiwa and Mopreme are currently mourning the loss of their father and Tupac’s stepfather, Mutulu Shakur, who passed away from bone marrow cancer on July 7, 2023, at the age of 72. Mutulu had been released on parole eight months prior after serving nearly 37 years in prison for his involvement as a member of the Black Liberation Army in a 1981 Brinks truck robbery that resulted in the deaths of a guard and two police officers.

Mutulu had married Afeni Shakur, Tupac’s mother, in 1975, the same year they welcomed Sekyiwa. However, the couple divorced in 1982, and Afeni passed away from cardiac arrest in 2016.
