Lawyer For Notorious B.I.G. Criticizes LAPD Over Release Of Slain Rapper’s Autopsy Results

While the recent release of Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace’s autopsy may have fed some people’s compulsion to know what happened on the night the legendary rapper was killed, one person wasn’t too happy about it. Longtime lawyer for the Wallace estate, Perry Sanders Jr., recently criticized the Los Angeles Police Department for releasing the information to the public. Sanders also wonders what was the reasoning behind releasing those documents after all these years. Wallace was gunned down in a drive-by on March 9, 1997 while riding passenger in a vehicle after leaving an industry party in Los Angeles.

“What legitimate lead could be stimulated by releasing an autopsy that says Mr. Wallace was shot. When everyone knows that ” Perry Sanders Jr. recently told The Los Angeles Times. “Why don’t they release some of the clues they have?”

As previously reported, the late Brooklyn rapper’s autopsy was recently disclosed to the public revealing that only one of the four bullets that struck the 24-year-old rising star proved to be fatal. The LAPD claims they did so in order to generate leads on a case that has been cold for over a decade.
