Ex-LAPD Detective Implicates Puffy, Suge Knight in Tupac-Biggie Slayings

The Rolling Stone Blog

An ex-LAPD detective who was removed from the double
investigation into the murders of rival rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls is claiming
he has proof
that Sean "Puffy" Combs and Suge Knight are to blame for
ordering the murders. In a new self-published book called Murder Rap,
the former detective, Greg Kading, alleges that the LAPD suppressed evidence,
including taped confessions from hired hitmen, and removed him from the case
just as he was on the verge of solving it.

Sean Combs wrote
in an email
 to LA Weekly, "This story is pure fiction and
completely ridiculous." Shakur, who recorded for Knight's Death Row Records, was
gunned down in Las Vegas in September 1996; Smalls (Christopher Wallace), Combs'
friend and colleague, was shot and killed six months later in Los Angeles.
