It has been reported that Clayton Armstrong Hill has escaped from a prison camp in Atlanta, Georgia. Hill, who has confessed to being an accessory after the fact to the murder of Notorious B.I.G., is currently on the run from law officials.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Russell G. Vineyard has signed documents noting that Hill walked away from the prison he was in last week.
“I was notified by officials … that inmate Clayton Armstrong Hill walked off the grounds,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Clay M. Cleveland noted in an affidavit, as reported by Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “A bed count was conducted to verify Hill’s status, and at approximately 6:40 p.m. Hill was identified as missing.”

Hill was in a medium security prison after pleading guilty to charges of more than 100 fraudulent federal income tax returns in the mid-2000s. In July 2011, Hill confessed to being an accessory after the fact to the murder of Notorious B.I.G. in his memoir Diary of an Ex-Terrorist, and he shared more about it in a feature with HipHopDX that year. He said that the Nation of Islam was involved with the plot and cover up of the murder, sharing how he was an accessory after the fact after helping a man who claimed to be the shooter.
“I guess he felt comfortable so he began to talk about why he was on the run,” Hill shared regarding the alleged shooter. “Dawoud explained that he had put in the ‘work’ on Biggie. I gripped my steering wheel tighter but stayed silent, allowing him to continue to talk. He explained that he was a member of the Bloods and said it was [for] what happened to Tupac [Shakur] who was a Blood and a Muslim. ‘And I made twenty five ‘g’s’ off that.’ He patted his front pants pocket to emphasize his point which I noticed was bulging. ‘So where you headed to next?’ ‘Philly. The brothers up at #12 are expecting me.’ He was making reference to Muhammad Mosque #12, the infamous home of the Black Mafia.”
