A lawyer for the Notorious B.I.G. recently blasted the Los Angeles Police Department, for releasing an autopsy of the slain rapper.
Notorious B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace, was gunned down on March 9, 1997, during a drive-by shooting in front of the Petersen Automotive Museum in downtown Los Angeles.
The rapper died after he was struck by four bullets that pierced the passenger side of the Chevy Suburban, in which he was a passenger.
The LAPD claimed they released the autopsy photo in hopes of generating new leads surrounding the murder.
Perry Sanders Jr., long time lawyer for Notorious B.I.G.’s estate, criticized the LAPD for releasing the autopsy report after all almost 16-years.
“What legitimate lead could be stimulated by releasing an autopsy that says Mr. Wallace was shot. When everyone knows that ” Perry Sanders Jr. told The Los Angeles Times. “Why don’t they release some of the clues they have?”
Notorious B.I.G was killed by a shot that tore through his colon, liver, heart and lung, before coming to a stop near his left shoulder area.
No one has ever been arrested for the murder of Notorious B.I.G. or Tupac Shakur, who was gunned down six months earlier, on September 7, 1996 on the strip in Las Vegas.
