LAPD Reopens Biggie Smalls' Case, "Actively Investigating" Notorious B.I.G. Murder Again
The LA Weekly's news blog The Informer, quoting CNN, reports that the LAPD is once again "actively investigating" the 1997 murder of the Notorious B.I.G.
According to the CNN report:
A task force made up of local and federal law enforcement agencies is actively pursuing leads into the 1997 slaying of hip hop artist Christopher Wallace, better known as Biggie Smalls or Notorious B.I.G., according to two sources familiar with the investigation.
According to one law enforcement source, the investigation into the 13-year-old unsolved case was "reinvigorated" months ago as a result of new information, but the source would not elaborate further because of the ongoing investigation that includes the Los Angeles Police Department, L.A. County District Attorney's Office and the FBI.
