According to the Los Angeles Times, the detective Russell Poole, who was involved in the case surrounding the murder of Notorious B.I.G, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away from a suspected heart attack yesterday (August 19). Poole was apparently meeting Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide investigators about a cold case at the time of his death.
NYC’s Notorious B.I.G, a.k.a Christopher Wallace, was shot dead in his car on March 9, 1997 aged just 24, and the murder remains unsolved to this day. “Poole advanced the theory that Wallace’s death came from a plot involving a corrupt LAPD detective and Marion “Suge” Knight, who headed Shakur’s company when Shakur was killed“, mentioned the Los Angeles Times. The death of Poole is perhaps another step away from the murder of the Brooklyn rapper ever being solved.
