Several days ago friends, fans and family of the late Christopher Wallace, the Brooklyn MC known as The Notorious B.I.G., had to relive his murder of some fifteen years ago. Thanks to a leaked autopsy report, gruesome details of how the rapper was killed became public knowledge.
According to several reports, a security hold on the documents was lifted last week and an administrative error lead to the documents hitting the internet.
“Our detectives personally spoke with the Wallace family (Friday) night, and apologized for not notifying them prior to the release” said Captain Billy Hayes, head of the Robbery/Homicide Division. “Obviously this has been a challenging case for us to solve. We hope that witnesses or other people with information will come forward and give us the clues we need to solve this case.”
However, a lawyer for the Notorious B.I.G does not see the logic in making this information public or how it will help solve the case.
“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?”
