Today marks the 15th anniversary of the death of influential rapper Biggie Smalls and his murder case has remained unsolved.

However, it seems the detective, Greg Kading, which has investigated the murder of Biggie Smalls extensively, is ready to close the chapter on the rapper's death. Kading reveals that Wardell Fouse a.k.a Darnell Bolton a.k.a. Poochie was the trigger man who killed Smalls fifteen years ago and was paid $13,000 for the job.

It comes down to how you define solved, Kading told Complex Magazine. Both law enforcement agencies, the Las Vegas Police Department and the L.A.P.D., have drawn the conclusions that Tupac was killed by Orlando Anderson and Biggie Smalls was killed by Wardell 'Poochie' Fouse. Both shooters are dead. Orlando Anderson was killed outside a Compton record shop in May 1998. Poochie died in July 2003 as a result of multiple gunshot wounds. He was shot in the back while riding his motorcycle in Compton. He was supposedly killed as a result of in-fighting between the Mob Pirus -- Suge's Blood associates -- and another Blood gang known as the Fruit Town Pirus. That's all the justice that these cases will see. The co-conspirators are never going to be prosecuted. Unfortunately, the cases are so complicated and convoluted. These will never see criminal prosecution.

Kading was the head of the special task force that was in charge of investigating Biggie Small's murder from 2006 to 2009. Kading explains why the cases will never be prosecuted.

The D.A. in Los Angeles knows that this is an extremely difficult situation to try and prosecute, Kading said. Here's the problem; you've got [Suge's girlfriend] confessing, and then, there was a bad move by law enforcement to give her immunity. The shooter's dead, the female confessor has immunity, so you just have Suge Knight. The D.A.'s office in Los Angeles has a policy: They don't prosecute murders based on the testimony of one witness, which is now just the girlfriend. So the D.A.'s realizing, 'OK, what are we going to do? We're going to prosecute Suge Knight for solicitation of murder and the whole thing's based on the testimony of his girlfriend? We can bring in all this circumstantial stuff and we can bring in the history between these crews, but ultimately, a good defense attorney's going to say, 'Hey isn't this all just an elaborate cover-up, because the L.A.P.D. actually murdered Biggie?' The defense is going to try and turn the thing back around. So the D.A. realizes that there's not really a potential for a successful prosecution.

Kading wrote a book, Murder Rap, and said he wanted to get the information out there for the public to know what happened.

The burden of knowledge is heavy, Kading said. I wanted to get the information out and move on I hated the idea that the public had been so deceived, in regards to both of these murder investigations. I hated the idea that this information would always be suppressed because of law enforcement. I've got an obligation to educate the public as to what really happened. And to let the families know what the investigation entailed, so that they could at least have that peace of knowing everything that law enforcement knows about the cases.

Kading says that even though the trigger man in Smalls' murder is dead and the case will never be prosecuted, Voletta Wallace, Biggie Smalls' mother, will know the truth behind her son's murder.

I can guarantee you that you will never see criminal prosecution in either of these cases, but Voletta Wallace knows who killed her son, Kading said. She knows that individual then died a violent death himself. The co-conspirators, yes, they have gotten away with it, but they have been exposed publicly. Suge Knight knows that everybody knows that he was behind Biggie's murder. [Suge's girlfriend Theresa Swann], she's in hiding. She knows that her kids, the community at large and everybody in the hip-hop community knows that she and Suge conspired to kill Biggie. The shooter's dead. That's as close to justice as these cases will ever see.
