NEWS: New Leads Found In Investigation Over B.I.G's Murder


The death of Biggie Smalls, aka B.I.G aka Christopher Wallace still hasn't been solved, but some new leads into the investigation over his death have been found.

 The 13-year-old case was recently "reinvigorated" after some new information was brought forward according to a law enforcerment source, which includes the LAPD, LA County District Attorney's Office and the FBI.

A retired LAPD detective told CNN that he still believes that Suge Knight is responsible for Biggie's death, even though he was in prison at the time:

"Suge Knight ordered the hit," Poole said, adding that he believes it was arranged by Reggie Wright Jr., who headed security for Death Row Records.

Reggie Wright Jr. told CNN he had nothing to do with the murder, and Knight has repeatedly said he had nothing to do with the crime. Poole said he retired early from the LAPD, in part, because he was thwarted in following leads in the Wallace case involving police officers, some of whom worked off-duty for Death Row Records.

"I think I was getting too close to the truth," Poole said. "I think they feared that the truth would be a scandal."
