(AllHipHop News) A new documentary claims to have evidence that could blow the lid off of the unsolved murder of hip-hop star Tupac Shakur.
Tupac was gunned down on September 7, 1996 on the Las Vegas strip.
Pac died on September 13, days after suffering multiple gunshot wounds sustained in a drive-by shooting.
Director RJ Bond, who has shot the documentary “Tupac: Assassination,” is planning a new documentary titled “Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton.”
In his latest documentary, RJ Bond claims to have found a source who created an explosive “Confession Letter,” just after the shooting.
The unnamed source gave the letter to Fox TV news reporter Chris Blatchford, in 1998.
However Blatchford – and others who have seen the letter – claim that they have distanced themselves from it, due to its explosive allegations.
RJ Bond, who is a Los Angeles resident, has reported and documented Tupac’s murder extensively.
He obtain a copy of the letter for his documentary.
The “Confession Letter” alleges that there were at least three individuals in the vehicle used to commit the “drive by” shooting of Shakur at the intersection of Flamingo and Koval Streets in Las Vegas.
“One or two of these individuals dictated the letter to a friend’s sister and the letter was given to Blatchford when one of the individuals who had agreed to an on-camera interview with FOX had a change of heart and did not appear for the interview,” according to a rep for RJ Bond.
Bond maintains that Marion “Suge” Knight was the intended target, however that is just one of many theories behind the unsolved murders of Pac and Biggie.
Representatives for RJ Bond claims the letter is valid, and was written by an incarcerated was delivered to Blatchford by a source who stands by his letter nonetheless.
“The Shakur and Wallace murders have become even more difficult to solve in recent years; Russell Poole and eyewitnesses/Shakur bodyguards Frank Alexander and Michael Moore all died within a one year period (the other eyewitness Yafeu Fula was shot “mob style” just weeks after the Shakur incident) so it is virtually impossible for anyone to confront their accusers at this point,” reads a press release for the project.
“But the case can still be closed without prosecution specifically because of that condition. Yet they remain open.”
“Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton” is available on all streaming and all of the streaming on demand platforms now.
