Recently, new leads began to finally solve the the 13-year-old investigation into the murder of rapper Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace. Sources report that a new task force, consisting of local and federal law enforcement agencies, are pursuing leads related to the slaying of Biggie Smalls outside the Petersen Automotive Museum in downtown L.A. back in March 1997. Police claim a lone gunman in a Chevy Impala rolled up next to a Chevy Suburban carrying B.I.G. and members of his entourage. The unknown gunman sprayed the passenger side with bullets killing Biggie on the spot. This was similar to the slaying of Tupac Shakur September 7th 1996, six months earlier, in Las Vegas. Retired L.A. cop, Russell Poole, investigated the murders, sticks to the theory that Death Row Records CEO "Suge" Knight ordered the hit while he sat in jail on a probation violation. According to Poole's theory, it was former LAPD officer David Mack who allegedly helped set up both murders, while Amir Muhammad (a.k.a. Harry Billups), one of Mack’s friends, pulled the trigger. Mack, a member of the Bloods street gang, was released from prison in May of 2010, after finishing a 14 year bid for his role in a $700,000 bank robbery while he was a police officer.
