Las Vegas police have finally made a breakthrough in the long-unsolved murder case of iconic rapper Tupac Shakur. Nearly 27 years after his tragic drive-by shooting, Duane ‘Keffe D’ Davis, a former gangster now aged 60, has been charged with one count of murder with a deadly weapon by a grand jury in Nevada.
The announcement came on September 29, 2023, as the world remembered the 27th anniversary of Tupac’s untimely death. Marc DiGiacomo, a chief deputy district attorney in Clark County, revealed in court that Davis played a pivotal role, acting as an “on-ground, on-site commander” who allegedly “ordered the death” of the ‘Changes’ rapper, according to CBS News.
The arrest of Davis marked a significant development in a case that had baffled investigators for nearly three decades. It was reported that the jury had been assembled for “several months” before Davis’s apprehension near his home.
