While CNN was unable to obtain the reported new information in the investigation they were informed by a source in law enforcement that the case was “reinvigorated” several months ago due to this new information.
The death of Notorious B.I.G. is currently under investigation by a number of organizations including the Los Angeles Police Department, L.A. County District Attorney’s Office, and the FBI.
Notorious B.I.G. was killed in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997 following a music industry party. He was shot four times in the chest while being driven back to his hotel and was immediately rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he later died.
In the years following Notorious B.I.G.’s death a number of theories have emerged with the most popular theories revolving around issues between the East Coast and West Coast and possible LAPD involvement.
“I think I was getting too close to the truth,” retired Los Angeles Police Detective Russell Poole revealed to CNN. “I think they feared that the truth would be a scandal.”
