Singer Faith Evans recently sat down with Huffington Post Live to discuss her late husband, Notorious B.I.G. and how she would like his unsolved case file to be revisited by the Los Angeles Police Department.
“We know he was murdered, but we believe that the LAPD knows who’s responsible. That’s what we believe,” the singer said, when asked about her thoughts on her husband’s death, claiming that LAPD has information on who took the fatal shot during the drive-by but won’t disclose.
The 1997 murder investigation surrounding B.I.G. is currently unsolved and Evans would like more attention to be redirected into closing the case.
All we can do is hope that that happens,” Evans said. “But we’re just happy that we’re here to preserve his legacy and [make sure] his kids are happy and they’re living great lives.
The only way you can look at it is tragic. Tragic and senseless,” she continued. “But I don’t think that situation was the result of being in the music business. It’s a little deeper than that. I think all the things that came with it definitely added to the hype of things. The whole media element, and people being able to say what they think and not be accurate.
The legendary rapper was killed in Los Angeles back in 1997 at the age of 24 and although the case has had severals leads over the years, no suspects have ever been officially named or tried in court.
