Greg Kading, a former LAPD detective who worked on the murder investigation of Tupac Shakur, recently revealed who he believes was behind the famous crime.

Over the weekend, Kading divulged to "Today Australia" that he thinks Orlando "Baby" Anderson, a Crip gang member from Compton, California, was the person who was truly responsible for the act. The investigator also stated that Anderson was "the guy that Tupac had gotten into a fight with earlier that evening, and that guy came back and retaliated, along with the rest of his crew."

Continuing, Kading also discussed the mystique surrounding the slayings of both Tupac and rapper Biggie Smalls. "There's really not much mystery behind these murders, even though there's a bunch of conspiracy theories surrounding them," he said. "When you just get down to the brass tacks of it, they're relatively simple."

His belief coincides with the conclusion that was reached in a 2017 documentary titled "Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?" As seen in the film, police officers Tim Bennan and Robert Ladd claim that the aforementioned Crips gang member shot the "Dear Mama" artist from a vehicle in Las Vegas in September 1996. Anderson had been on the radar of the Compton Police Department even before Tupac's death as he had tried to shoot someone during a gang initiation when he was 15 years old. However, Anderson was ultimately killed in a triple murder regarding drug money in 1998.

Formally, the case remains unsolved, as reported by Metro, but it seems as though fans of the late "California Love" musician and anyone who has been tied to the case over the years will continue to try to put the pieces together moving forward.
