New Evidence in Notorious B.I.G. Case, Judge to Allow New Defendants

New evidence has emerged in the murder case of Christoper “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace that suggests that rogue LA cop Rafael Perez was on duty on the night the rap star was murdered and may have been at the scene. According to the Associated Press, U.S. District Court Judge Florence-Marie Cooper has accepted this evidence and may allow new defendants, including Death Row Records founder Suge Knight, to be named in the Wallace family’s new wrongful death lawsuit against the city of LA. The family has long asserted that Biggie’s murder was carried out by Perez’s partner, David Mack, possibly on the orders of Suge Knight. Mack is currently serving a 14 year sentence for a bank robbery. The new evidence will also allow for the addition of three city detectives to the suit for either failing to prevent the murder, or concealing evidence. A previous suit ended in a mistrial. Thomas Reichert, an attorney for the city, said the newly introduced evidence was simply “old wine, new bottles.”
