The murdered New York Rapper Tupac Shakur would have celebrated his 40th birthday today. Instead, he was gunned down fifteen years ago and his murder remains unsolved. However, the case is now been officially investigated once more as a convicted felon has allegedly confessed to shooting Shakur two years before the 1996 murder.
Tupac Shakur is the focus of a new investigation as a convicted felon has claimed he was the one who robbed and shot the New York rapper in 1994, two years before his death. Police believe that this is a significant lead that may lead to apprehending Tupac’s murderer.
Police are now investigating the convict’s claims further to determine whether it is worth interviewing him.
The earlier shooting and robbery ma be more significant as the felon claims he was given $2,500 in order to carry out the robbery and shooting.
The felon, lifer Dexter Isaac, says he was hired by the hip-hop manager Jimmy ‘Henchman’ Rosemond to rob and shoot Tupac. He says that eventually led to a three year feud with Tupac, at the end of which he was dead.
However, despite this link, Isaac is not admitting murdering Tupac Shakur in September 1996. He has also refused to comment in the 1997 murder of fellow rapper The Notorious Big.
Despite there being no murder confession, this is a big step forward for a 15 year old murder case on what would have been the 40th birthday of the victim, Tupac Shakur.
