The residence of Duane Keith Davis, 60, was reportedly searched in connection with the murder of musician Tupac Shakur, according to a warrant acquired by Las Vegas police and submitted Tuesday with the Clark County District Court.
The Case Is Being Investigated For 30 Years Now
The search was carried out on Monday in Henderson, Nevada by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, which is just about 20 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, where Shakur, 25, was shot and died in a drive-by shooting in 1996.
A desktop computer, a laptop, 40 ink cartridges, the book “Compton Street Legends,” a Vibe magazine issue on Tupac, two tubs of pictures, and other papers were among the things police seized from Davis’s residence, according to court filings.
Devices As Evidence
Computers, electronic storage devices, typed or handwritten notes on media coverage of Tupac’s death, and evidence of Davis’s connection to the Southside Compton Crips were among the materials that may be seized under the terms of the warrant, which Judge Jacqueline M. Bluth approved.
“LVMPD can confirm a search warrant was served in Henderson, Nevada, on July 17, 2023, as part of the ongoing Tupac Shakur homicide investigation,” Las Vegas police stated in a statement on Monday. The Shakur murder case has been under investigated for almost 30 years.
Davis, also known as Keffe D, allegedly confessed to his role in the assassination of Shakur when being questioned in relation to the death of Biggie Smalls in 2019, according to Greg Kading, a former Los Angeles police detective, who claimed this to CBS News Los Angeles in 2019. This led to the conclusion that Shakur’s murder had already been solved.
