In a taped confession given to the L.A. Weekly, Keffe D says, “[Combs] took me downstairs and he’s like, ‘Man, I want to get rid of them dudes.’ … I was like, ‘We’ll wipe their ass out, quick. It’s nothing.’ … We wanted a million.”
This is all coming to light because of an explosive new book written by former LAPD Police Detective Greg Kading titled Murder Rap.
In the book Kading claims the LAPD is withholding vital information that could break the case wide open.
“For the LAPD this is going to be kind of a bittersweet thing,” Kading says. “Because we’re going to clear up that public misconception that the LAPD was involved in the murders or that it was involved in a cover up, which I know wasn’t the case. But at the same time they need to hold themselves accountable for the negligence and incompetence which precluded us from solving the cases.”
In addition to obtaining the confession from Keffe D, Kading was also able to get a witness to come forward in the murder of Notorious B.I.G.
“Theresa Swann,” confessed that Suge Knight paid his Mob Piru affiliated friend Wardell “Poochie” Fouse to kill Biggie Smalls in Los Angeles six months after Tupac died.
In the book Kading reveals reveals “that LAPD has been sitting on extensive tapes and documents containing confessions from key players behind the alleged assassinations of Shakur and Smalls (Wallace). LAPD higher-ups pulled Kading off the double investigation right when he was poised to drive it home, he says. Then they shut it down completely.”
Diddy told the L.A. Weekly by email that “This story is pure fiction and completely ridiculous.” Suge Knight couldn’t be reached.
