(AllHipHop News) Clayton Armstrong Hill wrote in his 2011 autobiography Diary of An Ex-Terrorist that he helped cover-up the 1997 shooting death of The Notorious B.I.G., and while he was never convicted of that murder he did end up in prison anyway. That was until Hill escaped a medium security U.S. facility in Atlanta on May 28th.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that a U.S. Magistrate judge signed a federal complaint issuing a warrant for Hill's arrest.
Hill was serving a prison sentence after pleaded guilty to scamming the government out of $353,000 in income tax returns in Illinois and Georgia between 2002 and 2006.
“I was notified by officials … that inmate Clayton Armstrong Hill walked off the grounds,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Clay M. Cleveland said in an affidavit. “A bed count was conducted to verify Hill’s status, and at approximately 6:40 p.m. Hill was identified as missing.”
In his memoir, Hill alleged that he, among other things, disposed of the weapon that killed Biggie at the request of the Nation of Islam. The N.O.I. denies participation with any conspiracy involving BIG's murder.
“We don’t plot to kill anybody,” said Abdul Rahman of the Muhammad Mosque No. 15 in Atlanta.
