Los Angeles Police Take A New Look At Notorious B.I.G. Murder

ImageAssistant City Attorney Don Vincent revealed yesterday (March 16) that the Los Angeles Police Department has assigned a new team of detectives to take a second look at the 1997 fatal shooting of Notorious B.I.G.

Voletta Wallace, B.I.G.'s mother, his sister and his widow, Faith Evans, sued the city and others four years ago, alleging wrongful death, and accused convicted corrupt cops Rafael Perez and David Mack of conspiring to kill Biggie with Death Row CEO Marion "Suge" Knight.

Last July, U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper declared a mistrial in the family's suit after it was revealed that the LAPD were deliberately concealing evidence in the rapper's killing. She later ordered the LAPD to pay $1.1 million to the family's legal team in costs disbursed during the trial.

The LAPD has vehemently denied the accusations of purposely concealing information and on Thursday, Vincent added that no evidence has been found linking police to B.I.G's death.

A retrial of B.I.G's death is expected later this year.
