The house of Duane Keith Davis, 60, was searched in connection with the murder of musician Tupac Shakur, according to a warrant acquired by Las Vegas police and submitted Tuesday with the Clark County District Court.
The search was performed Monday near Henderson, Nevada, fewer than 20 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, where Shakur, 25, was assassinated in a drive-by shooting in 1996.
According to court records, the materials taken from Davis’ home included a desktop computer, a laptop, 40 ink cartridges, a copy of the book “Compton Street Legends,” a copy of a Vibe magazine issue on Tupac, two tubs of pictures, and other documents.
The warrant, signed by Judge Jacqueline M. Bluth, authorized the seizure of laptops, electronic storage devices, typed or handwritten notes about media coverage of Tupac’s death, and documentation of Davis’s affiliation with the Southside Compton Crips, among other things.
“LVMPD can confirm a search warrant was served in Henderson, Nevada, on July 17, 2023, as part of the ongoing Tupac Shakur homicide investigation,” Las Vegas police said in a statement Monday.
The investigation into Shakur’s killing has been going on for nearly three decades.
In 2019, Greg Kading, a retired Los Angeles police detective, alleged to CBS News Los Angeles that Shakur’s murder had already been solved after Davis —also known as Keffe D— confessed to his involvement in the killing of Shakur while being questioned in connection with the murder of Biggie Smalls.
