biggiechain.jpgIn a bombshell development in the ongoing story of the murder of the Notorious BIG, an incarcerated witness has recanted his previous testimony and implicated the attorney representing the slain rapper’s family in his lie. According to a report by the LA Times, inmate Waymond Anderson, a crucial witness in the case, now says that he lied about former cops David Mack and Rafael Perez’s supposed involvement in Biggie’s 1997 murder. Mack and Perez are both currently incarcerated on unrelated charges. In an August 20 deposition, Anderson changed his story and said that he had been approached in 2001 by fellow inmate Kenneth Boagni who asked him to participate in the lie in exchange for payment from Wallace family attorney Perry R. Sanders. Anderson claims that Sanders personally offered him money during a phone conversation and that Voletta Wallace herself made and offer of $150,000 in a message sent through another inmate. Sanders flatly denied the allegations and noted that he was not retained by the Wallace family until after Boagni had left prison where he and Anderson were incarcerated. The attorney is now accusing LA Times writer Chuck Philips of influencing Anderson to change his story. Earlier this year, the Philips wrote an article for the Times that challenged Anderson’s conviction for murder and arson. Philips and Times editor James O’Shea called Sanders claims “idiotic” and “utterly groundless.”
