It’s been almost two decades since Tupac Shakur was shot and killed while leaving a boxing event in Las Vegas, but that hasn’t stopped people from believing that the rapper is alive and well.
A retired police officer, who is currently on his deathbed, recently made claims that he was paid $1.5 million to assist Tupac in faking his own death.
David Myers said:
The world needs to know what I did. I’m ashamed that I let a price be put on my word and I cannot die without letting the world know.
He also alleges that Suge Knight was in on the deal, and that more than 30 other people were paid anywhere from $50,000 to $2 million to cover up what really happened.
This news has emerged just a few months after producer Randall Emmett revealed that a biopic surrounding Tupac’s life and legacy was going to start filming.
Interestingly enough, the story comes from a website called Daily Media Buzz, which is known to post hoaxes.
Apparently, Myers doesn’t even exist, and there is proof that Tupac is, in fact, deceased.
Back in May 2014, former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officer Chris Carroll put the rumors surrounding his death to an end by disclosing Tupac’s final words.
“I kept asking over and over, ‘Who did this? Who shot you?’ And he basically kept ignoring me. He looked at me and he took a breath to get the words out, and he opened his mouth, and I thought I was actually going to get some co-operation,” he said. “And then the words came out: “Fuck you.”
Everyone seems to have their own theory surrounding who was involved in his murder, though his killing remains unsolved.
