Tupac Shakur’s Sister Speaks Out After Duane ‘Keffe D’ Davis Is Arrested For Rapper’s Murder: ‘The Silence Of The Past 27 Years Surrounding This Case Has Spoken Loudly In Our Community’
An arrest has finally been made in the fatal shooting of Tupac Shakur.
According to reports, earlier today (Sept. 29) Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department arrested Duane Keith “Keefe D” Davis, 60, and charged him with murder for his alleged involvement in Tupac Shakur’s death. Reportedly, Davis isn’t believed to be the gunman behind the 1996 shooting, but he is suspected to have orchestrated the atrocious incident. In Nevada, an individual can be charged with a crime even if they only helped someone commit the unlawful act.
In a statement shared on Instagram, Tupac Shakur’s sister Sekyiwa “Set” Shakur spoke on Davis’ arrest and said,
“This is no doubt a pivotal moment. The silence of the past 27 years surrounding this case has spoken loudly in our community. It’s important to me that the world, the country, the justice system, and our people acknowledge the gravity of the passing of this man, my brother, my mother’s son, my father’s son. His life and death matters, and should not go unsolved or unrecognized, so yes, today is a victory but I will reserve judgment until all the facts and legal proceedings are complete.”
“There have been multiple hands involved and there remains so much surrounding the life and death of my brother Tupac and our Shakur family overall. We are seeking real justice, on all fronts.”
In 2018, Davis started doing interviews about Tupac’s death and the following year he released a book titled “COMPTON STREET LEGEND,” which covers his alleged involvement in the murder.
In part, a description of the book on Amazon reads,
“Keffe D has been a central figure in both the Tupac Shakur and Biggie murders for the past 20 years. COMPTON STREET LEGEND will add valuable information about two of the biggest “unsolved” crimes in American history. It will serve as the missing piece of the puzzle that Hip-Hop Fans have been waiting for.”
The investigation was “reinvigorated” due to Davis’ remarks over the years, according to Lieutenant Jason Johansson.
Lieutenant Johansson added,
“[Davis] provided his own series of statements that are consistent with the evidence we’ve gathered.”
Davis is scheduled to appear in court next week.
