Did Keefe D snitch on himself during a VladTV interview, which indirectly helped solve the Tupac murder case? A man who has long been suspected of being involved in the 1996 murder of rap icon Tupac Shakur has been arrested by Las Vegas police, according to a report from AP news.
The man arrested is Duane Keith Davis, also known as Keefe D, who has previously confessed to being in the car that shot Shakur, but claimed he was not the triggerman. He said he was with his nephew Orlando Anderson, who had a beef with Shakur and Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight, and two other men. He said Anderson was the one who shot Shakur, but Anderson was killed in 1998 in an unrelated shooting.
Did Keefe D Snitching on Himself During a VladTV Interview Lead to His Arrest for Tupac’s Murder?
The report from AP news did not specify what new evidence led to Keefe D’s arrest, or what charges he is facing. The Las Vegas police department did not respond to requests for comment.
However, some sources have speculated that Keefe D may have snitched on himself during an old VladTV interview where he was promoting a book that also had information that could have led to his arrest. In the interview, which was posted on YouTube in 2019, Keefe D revealed details about the night of the shooting, including the type of gun used, the route they took, and the conversations they had before and after the incident.
Keefe D’s book, titled “Compton Street Legend”, also contains his account of the shooting and his involvement in the Southside Crips gang. He describes himself as one of the last living witnesses to Shakur’s murder, and claims he first spoke about it in 2010, during a closed-door meeting with federal and local authorities. He said they promised to drop his drug charges if he helped them out. His confession was not admissible in court, because it was made under a grant of immunity from prosecution.
Keefe D Was Allegedly Selling Items Connected to 2Pac’s Murder
A first responder named Chris Carroll who was allegedly the last man to see Tupac alive claimed that Keefe D was selling items connected to Tupac’s murder, which only increased the vitriol towards him. Carroll was one of the first responders called to the scene after 2pac was shot.
What Keefe D’s Arrest Could Mean For Tupac’s Family
The arrest of Keefe D could bring some closure to the family and fans of Tupac Shakur, one of the most influential and controversial figures in hip hop history. Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur, who died in 2016, had filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Anderson, Keefe D, and others in 1997, but the case was dismissed in 2010 due to lack of evidence. Shakur’s estate has not issued any statement regarding Keefe D’s arrest.
However, Keefe D’s arrest does not mean he is guilty of murdering Shakur, as prosecutors will still have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt in court. Keefe D was arrested on suspicion of murder, which means there is probable cause to believe he committed the crime, but not enough evidence to convict him yet. He will have the right to a fair trial and the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise.
