Did the LAPD Kill Biggie?


I have a clipping from Toronto’s Globe & Mail about a mistake made in an LA Times story about Biggie’s death.  I have the article taped to my office wall.   Above the story’s headline — “LA Times’ Tupac story based on fake documents” —  I have scratched my own question in pen: “Did the LA Times Kill Biggie?”


And then – tonight – taking a break from the piles of work on my office desk – I turned to my computer to read the Root and found this piece.


Did the LAPD Kill Biggie? The story is based on a report by CBS LA. (See the video here)
