New Information Emerges In Notorious B.I.G. Murder Investigation

A source tells CNN that the Notorious B.I.G. murder investigation has been 'reinvigorated' due to new information.

13 years after the death of rapper Notorious B.I.G., CNN reports that the rapper’s murder investigation has been revived due to new leads in the case.  

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."

HipHopDX will keep you posted as new information comes forward in the investigation.

    RIP Big. I loved his rhymes more than any rapper I'd ever heard before or since. He was amazing and miraculous all in one. You couldn't escape the hits because Big's rhymes and Diddy's music together was explosive during the Bad Boy era. In a club or at a party his music was so good everyone would rush to the dance floor just so happy to hear those hits because they were soooo good! It's nothing like that now. And the rap master is gone. I wish they would convict the person who killed him because he had a mom who grieved trememdously and children who coudlt grow up with him. Plus he was the best. Then and now. His being Black and a rappper I feel has delayed a true investigation and conviction. That is wrong and inhumane. I hope you are resting in peace Big The GOAT (Greatest Of All Time). We and hip hop and the music world sure do miss you man.

      I know I've been posting too much here (yeah, whatever), but check out a quote by this dude "Ha'mmonds". He seems like quite the credible witness. Make your own conclusions: "The murder of Notorious B.I.G. had taken place not long before Knight was moved to the Men's Colony, and Ha'mmonds recalled that Knight hadn't needed much time after his arrival to take credit for the killing. "He said, 'My people handled the business. They took care of him … and he took it like a fat bitch.' He started laughing, and he said, 'We just missed Puffy.'" http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/the-unsolved-mystery-of-the-notorious-b-i-g-20110107?page=8

    You gotta give it up to Detective Russell Poole. Seriously. This dude will not give up, I commend that. This just proves not everybody's corrupt. He's willing to put his neck out to bring justice to these corrupt individuals. No matter how old this case is, hopefully one day it gets solved.

    • gimik313

    Hey, everyone. If you wanna read the comprehensive story of what happened, check out this Rolling Stone article I came across today. It shows a date of "January 7th, 2011", so the shit's new! It talks about new details (that I've never seen personally) and makes clear a lot stuff: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/the-unsolved-mystery-of-the-notorious-b-i-g-20110107

    This can't be solved legally but Suge hired blood/cops to kill B.I.G. Thats how it happened. Because cops killed Biggie the LAPD didn't go after the case because a huge dirty cop scandal would be the result plus it was young black male who died so that probably didn't help.

    The truth would have been interesting 10 years ago, but even if they find the shooter, it would only re-open old wounds for their families and create more tension in the hip hop industry.

  • thegreat

    Fuk this case. Its old as fuk. The dude who did the shit probably dead or chillin somewhere in Mexico. Its been 13 years, they not gone find out who did it. Be foreal about this shit. Why would hiphopdx post this shit? Dont post shit like this unless u found the killer. Nobody cares if new info emerges, if there aint no actual killer found guilty, then whats the point? Its fuked up yall still havent found a guilty person after all of these years. You take this case to a judge and he gone dismiss the shit before it even starts.

    • sum_body

    first suge killed pac, then suge killed biggie? Why cant people keep their bullshit straight? Then tomorrow they'll say the illuminati killed pac and biggie, then the next day pac will be alive again. And every new theory contradicts the last. People just run their mouth depending on the whether. I'm sick of it.

  • Biggie's Angel

    COPS KILLED BIGGIE Folks... it's all right here... look no further than youtube. Suge Knight and corrupt cops took a hit out on Biggie: Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAWn58BybHs Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2zs4JQW_nA Simple as that.

  • TRUTH

    REALLY, I don't know if well ever know. The People that killed them are problly already dead. Tupac's killers will never get found, they never fuckin tried. Biggie tho was most likey killed by the police because it was basicly ran by the bloods in that time span, So the police gunna arrest fellow police. And Biggie knew who shot Tupac the first time, anybody who think differnt isn't looking at the facts, and how biggie acted about the whole thing
