Retired Cop Says 2Pac Still Alive And He Helped Him Fake His Own Death

rexfeatures_1420473k.jpg

The death of Tupac Shakur in 1996 remains one of the greatest mysteries of music, with hundreds of rumours and opinions about his demise.

Rumours fluctuate between naming his exact killers (usually someone high up in the rap ranks) to speculation that it was all fake and 2Pac is living on an island with Biggie and Elvis.

Ordinarily these conspiracies are quite easy to brush off, but this most recent addition from an apparently retired Las Vegas police officer has certainly given the internet food for thought.



David Myers, a retired copy who’s allegedly currently in critical condition has claimed that he was paid around $1.5m (£960,000) to help stage the death of the rapper.

Myer says that he was intrinsic in setting up the fake drive-by shooting that occurred in Vegas following a 1996 Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand.

As reported by The Mirror he 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 suggests that hip-hop mogul Suge Knight, who was present at the shooting and is currently in jail awaiting trial for murder, was in on it all, and even played a big part in the cover-up.

The retired cop later goes on to allege that 2pac even paid $50,000 for a body double to be taken to the morgue and cremated.

However, this is not the first time such rumours have appeared online and speculation has since emerged that story could be fake, or that even David Myers himself isn’t real.

But then… ‘they’ would say that wouldn’t they…
