Las Vegas Metro police have recently conducted a search at a home in a Las Vegas suburb in connection with the unsolved murder of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur, which occurred 27 years ago. This development was confirmed by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department in a statement released on Tuesday.

The search, which took place on July 17, 2023, is part of an ongoing investigation into the shooting that claimed Shakur’s life on September 7, 1996. The police department did not provide any further details regarding the search or the investigation.

This is the first time in years that a police agency has publicly announced its active pursuit of leads in the case. Nevada does not have a statute of limitations for prosecuting homicide cases, which means that the investigation can continue indefinitely until the perpetrators are brought to justice.

At the time of his death, Shakur was riding in a BMW driven by Marion Suge Knight, the owner of his record label. They were part of a procession of luxury vehicles heading to a nightclub when the shooting occurred. Shakur was shot multiple times by an unknown assailant in a white Cadillac that pulled alongside their car at a crowded intersection near the Vegas Strip.

Despite extensive investigations by various law enforcement agencies and numerous theories, no one has ever been arrested for Shakur’s murder. One theory implicated Orlando Anderson, a reputed gang member who had a physical altercation with Knight and Shakur on the night of the shooting. However, Anderson died in 1998 in an unrelated incident.

Retired LAPD detective Greg Kading, who investigated the murder of Christopher Wallace, also known as “Notorious B.I.G.,” alleged in his book, “Murder Rap,” that powerful East Coast hip-hop figures were behind Shakur’s killing. Kading believed that Wallace’s murder was a retaliation for Shakur’s death.
