Stunning Revelation Emerges in Tupac Murder Case: 15-Year-Old Confession Ignored


Stunning Revelation Emerges in Tupac Murder Case: 15-Year-Old Confession Ignored

In the ongoing investigation into the tragic 1996 shooting of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur, startling new details have emerged. Last year, Duane “Keefe D” Davis, a figure from the West Coast gang scene, was apprehended in connection with the murder. Recent developments have brought to light a previously undisclosed confession made by Davis to the Las Vegas police back in 2009.

Reports from The Sun indicate that the Las Vegas Metro Police possess a recording dating back 15 years in which Keefe D purportedly confesses his involvement in Tupac’s fatal shooting. Allegedly, in the recording, Keefe admits to being present in the car when the gunfire erupted, claiming that he and his associates opened fire as they pulled up beside Tupac on the Las Vegas strip.


However, Keefe’s attorney asserts that he was unaware of this confession, suggesting that it was not presented during the murder trial. Carl Arnold, the attorney, argues that the revelation fails to introduce anything novel to the case and instead underscores the absence of substantial evidence against his client.

Arnold maintains that the recently surfaced recording does not constitute definitive proof of guilt, as it contradicts Keefe’s earlier assertions that he wasn’t in Las Vegas at the time of the shooting. Despite the potential significance of the tape, Arnold downplays its impact, stating that it does not alter the core facts of the case.


Additionally, Arnold raises concerns regarding the timing of the confession’s disclosure and the 15-year delay in prosecuting his client based on this information. He alleges that the belated prosecution deprived Keefe of his right to a fair trial, noting that crucial witnesses who could corroborate or refute the confession have since passed away.

In response to these developments, Arnold is preparing a motion to dismiss the evidence if it is introduced into the case, arguing that the prosecution’s actions constitute a breach of due process. He contends that the evidence against Keefe remains circumstantial and insufficient to secure a conviction.


Former Los Angeles Police Department detective Greg Kading previously recounted a conflict involving Anderson and members of Death Row’s entourage and the Mob Piru gang, affiliated with Death Row Records. This conflict arose when Trevon Lane, associated with Death Row, had his medallions stolen during a dispute between rival gangs, the Crips and the Bloods. Lane, accompanied by Tupac, was in Las Vegas at the time.

It’s believed that Anderson, amidst the conflict, obtained a firearm and approached Tupac’s BMW at a red light, where shots were fired, resulting in Tupac’s death. Anderson himself was later killed in an unrelated shooting in Los Angeles.


Davis had been interviewed multiple times by law enforcement in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas over the years. Newly acquired audio by ABC News reveals a conversation between Davis and Las Vegas police in 2009, where Davis seemingly admits to his involvement in the shooting.

LVMPD Sheriff Kevin McMahill told ABC News that they consider Davis to be a significant figure in the incident, suggesting he provided the weapon used in Tupac’s murder.

However, complications arose due to a proffer agreement made with Davis, which typically protects informants from incrimination. This led to tensions between the police departments involved.


Despite these challenges, Greg Kading pointed out that Davis had breached the proffer agreement by publicly discussing his role in interviews and books over the years, ultimately leading to his own arrest.

The case continues to evolve, with legal battles over the admissibility and significance of evidence shaping the narrative surrounding Tupac’s tragic demise.
