It’s been over 20 years since Tupac Shakur was tragically shot and killed in Las Vegas. The late rapper ended up dying from his injuries six days later on September 7, 1996. But with an active post-mortem, Tupac’s death has also sparked some of the greatest conspiracy theories in pop culture history. But it looks like Suge Knight has an idea on who killed Tupac that night.
According to the The Independent, Knight’s attorney Thaddeus Culpepper wrote in a signed affidavit that the former Death Row CEO has known “for many years that Reggie Wright Jr. and his ex-wife Sharitha were behind the murder of Tupac and attempted murder of Knight.” While Knight has kept silent for all these years, he has decided to come out about it due to the new documentary Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton, which he thinks is spreading “salient points” about the case.
Knight, along with LAPD detectives, believe Sharitha went through with the tragic event so she could get everything in their divorce settlement, which had not been finalized at the time. Though there seems to be a lot more to investigate, the case still remains unsolved, as is the murder of The Notorious B.I.G., which occurred months later on March 9, 1997.
Late last month, Suge Knight was hospitalized. Read all about the details by clicking the link.
