In February 2018, Duane "Keffe D" Davis went on television in the U.S. and confessed to being present with the shooter when Tupac Shakur was fatally shot in Las Vegas in 1996. This interview aired on the BET series Death Row Chronicles. (You can view part of this interview here:

This was Davis's second statement regarding his connection to this case; the first one was made to a federal task force a decade ago, when he told a nearly identical story about the events of that night, and named his own nephew, Orlando Anderson, as the shooter. Even before then, Anderson had long been suspected of pulling the trigger, believed to be in retaliation for a fight between him and Shakur earlier that same night.

The story of that first statement by Davis has been told in a book and in multiple film and television projects. And now much of it has been reconfirmed by Davis in his new interview on BET. His statements are not a secret, and multiple aspects of his story have been corroborated by other witnesses.  

** It is time for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to declare that the Tupac Shakur murder case has been "cleared," and to finally bring closure for Shakur's family, friends and fans. **

We are not demanding that Davis be arrested; that is for our justice system to decide. But it is a charade for law enforcement to continue to pretend that we still don't know who killed Tupac Shakur. And Las Vegas Metro PD can declare a case "cleared" even if they don't present anyone with charges. All that it takes is the will to do it.

Over the past 21 years, dozens of dedicated investigators at the LVMPD, the LAPD, Compton PD, the FBI, and more, have dedicated years of their lives to solving the murder of Tupac Shakur. The creators of this petition have personally spoken to several of those detectives now that Davis has given his most recent interview, and none of the them can understand why the case isn't being cleared now when so little effort is needed to finish the job.

How can someone go on television, confess again to having direct knowledge of one of the most famous "unsolved" murders in history, and it goes ignored? It's as if the rule of law no longer applies to Tupac Shakur's murder, and that is simply wrong. We, the citizens, now humbly ask that this wrong be righted: Clear the Tupac Shakur murder case.
