The late rap legend’s wife before his death wants his murder case reopened with more people working to solve it. She believes the Los Angeles Police Department may have knowledge about the killer.
She said in an interview with HuffPost Live:
“We know he was murdered, but we believe that the LAPD knows who’s responsible. That’s what we believe.”
“All we can do is hope that happens, but we’re just happy that we’re here to preserve his legacy and [make sure] his kids are happy and they’re living great lives.”
The Notorious B.I.G. was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997. Despite various developments in the case, the killer has yet to be caught.
As for whether the infamous East Coast vs. West Coast rap feud had anything to do with her former husband’s death, Evans stated that she didn’t think the beef contributed to it any way.
“The only way you can look at it is tragic. Tragic and senseless,” she said. “But I don’t think that situation was the result of being in the music business. It’s a little deeper than that. I think all the things that came with it definitely added to the hype of things. The whole media element, and people being able to say what they think and not be accurate.”
