(AllHipHop News) Former Los Angeles Police Department detective Russell Poole died suddenly on Wednesday of a possible heart attack. Poole once led the investigation into the murder of The Notorious B.I.G., and he was very vocal about the Biggie case even after he resigned from the LAPD in 1999.
Poole also attempted to connect Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight to the death of Biggie as retaliation for the killing of rival 2Pac. Knight’s former longtime friend Reggie Wright was also implemented by Poole in Pac’s death. Wright, who once served as the head of security for Death Row, addressed Poole’s death with Bomb1st.
“It’s a good day for me, because I believe in karma,” said Wright. “First Michael Moore then Frank Alexander and now Russell Poole, all these people are dropping dead. I keep telling people God don’t like ugly. I hope people learn a lesson from this.”
Wright pointed out several of the people that have tried to tie him to the murder of Tupac Shakur have died over the last 10 years. Pac’s ex-bodyguards Michael Moore and Frank Alexander have both passed away. Wright also mentioned filmmaker Richard J. Bond, suggesting the director of the documentary Tupac Assassination: Conspiracy or Revenge may suffer the same fate as Poole, Moore, and Alexander.
“The next person is probably going to be R.J. Bond. I ain’t predicting no death on anybody, but they better get their selves right,” warned Wright. “They better stop with all this bullcrap they’ve been promoting, because they’re all dying like flies around here.”
Another former Pac bodyguard, Kevin Hackie, also once accused Wright of conspiring to kill the Hip Hop icon. In an exclusive 2014 interview, Wright told AllHipHop.com Hackie walked back those allegations.
“[Hackie] called me and apologized to me for making those accusations. He said he was duped into it by Frank Alexander and [Richard Bond],” Wright stated. “I could call him right now on the phone, and he’ll tell you all that information and pretty much that he was working for the government. I think he said he was an undercover agent, but a federal informant is what he was. He pretty much admits it and apologizes for making those false accusations.”
