2Pac Murder Investigation: Keefe D Reportedly At Center Of Police Search Warrant

2Pac’s murder investigation kicked back into life this week as Las Vegas police executed a search warrant on a home in connection with the rapper’s death, and now it has been revealed that Duane “Keefe D” Davis is who the cops are looking into.


According to 8 News Now, the search warrant — executed on a property in Henderson, Nevada on Monday (July 17) — involved Keefe D, the former gang member and uncle of ‘Pac’s alleged killer Orlando Anderson.

Police reportedly searched the home for personal notes, photos and other documents related to the rapper’s death, although it’s unclear if they retrieved any items of interest.

Residents at the address declined to comment, but one person reportedly threatened a reporter and photographer that “things would escalate” if they did not leave.

Orlando Anderson, a Compton crip, got into a scuffle with 2Pac and his entourage on the night of September 7, 1996 in the lobby of the MGM Grand following the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson boxing fight over allegations he had stolen the chain of a Death Row affiliate.

Hours later, ‘Pac was shot multiple times in a drive-by shooting near the intersection of East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane, succumbing to his injuries in hospital six days later.

Anderson was identified by police as a suspect shortly after, but denied any involvement and was never charged over the crime. He was later killed in an unrelated gang shooting in 1998.

Keefe D has frequently discussed 2Pac’s murder in interviews, as well as in a book he published in 2019 called Compton Street Legend.

In the 2018 BET docuseries Death Row Chronicles, Davis admitted to being in the car that pulled up alongside 2Pac and Suge Knight that fateful night.

He confirmed that the fatal shots “came from the backseat,” although he declined to reveal the identity of the shooter. He also did not deny that his nephew was the triggerman.

Last year, Keefe D’s alleged involvement in ‘Pac’s murder again came to the fore when former head of security for Death Row Records, Reggie Wright Jr., suggested that Davis was being investigated over the crime.

“Let’s put it this way, I bet Keefe D [has] been having the runs for the last two weeks,” he said an in interview with Bomb1st. “Because yeah, they are knocking on doors and there’s some activity.”

Keefe D refuted Wright’s claims. “Not that I know of, unless he’s the U.S. fucking attorney or something,” Davis said when asked about Wright’s comments in a sit-down with The Art of Dialogue. “I don’t know, this dude obsessed with me … He need to leave me the fuck alone.”

In his own conversation with the aforementioned platform last month, 2Pac’s biological father Billy Garland opened up about his son’s untimely demise and said he never should have fought Orlando Anderson the night of his death.

“He never should have did that,” Garland said of the scuffle, which took place in the lobby of the MGM Grand following the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson boxing fight. “‘Pac just got hyper and he thought he had to lead.

“If you notice in the video, everybody was following him around. He’s the money-maker. Death Row was the $100 million thing, but everybody’s following 2Pac. Think about that logic.”

He continued: “Everything he did, everybody attached themselves to him, and he felt obligated to prove that ‘I’m gonna be your leader.’ And he struck [Orlando] first, only because someone had told him that this is the guy who stole the Death Row medallion.

“Now, the way he did it was off-limits. Cameras every-fucking-where, c’mon, but that’s the irrational shit you do. And you know that broke my heart, but a lot of little shit that he did. But look at all the good shit that he did. Now look what he did, look what he’s done. I don’t think it’ll be done again.”
