fbi releases biggie murder files

Back in January, we learned some new info surrounding the murder of Christopher Wallace (aka Biggie Smalls/Notorious B.I.G.).

Now, even more info has come to the surface, because the FBI has released Biggie's murder files.

Here is some of the info that has come up in Biggie's files:

-FBI agents spent nearly two years looking for Biggie's murderer, and investigating the possibility of police involvement with the crime

-Informants told the FBI that corrupt police officers may have aided Biggie's murderer

-FBI agents conducted surveillance on a San Diego man who was a suspect, they went through his mail and garbage

-One FBI agent frequently consulted with a civil attorney who was taking on a wrongful death suit by Biggie's estate, which was aimed at the city of Los Angeles

Given what we heard back in January, none of this comes as a complete shocker to us…but def inneresting to learn new info about this case.

What do U think about this new info? Surprised by anything here?

B.I.G. Closure

Filed under: Legal Matters

Let's all let out a big sigh of relief because Notorious B.I.G.'s wrongful death suit has been dismissed and we can finally let him rest in peace!

It's been THIRTEEN YEARS since the late rapper was shot dead in Los Angeles at the age of 24. While his murder has never been solved, his mother, Voletta Wallace filed a suit against L.A. city officials and the LAPD in 2002, blaming them for her son's death. She won the case in March, 2006 and was awarded $1.1 million by U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper, however the ruling was overturned two months later when it it was revealed that the Wallaces had withheld information from the court.

After several hearings, federal court Judge Jacqueline Nguyen dismissed the lawsuit earlier this week, FINALLY ending this long ordeal.

What do U think? Are U glad it's finally over??
