The NYPD Is Investigating the Confession in the 1994 Tupac Shooting

Yesterday, Dexter Isaac, an inmate at a Brooklyn correctional facility, confessed to the 1994 shooting and robbery of Tupac Shakur. Today, the NYPD says they are investigating the allegation. That means we may soon know a whole lot more, and not just about the '94 incident: Isaac claims to have knowledge of Tupac and Biggie's murderers that he's not willing to divulge at this time. Meanwhile, a lawyer for artist manager James Rosemond, by whom Isaac claims he was hired for the Pac shooting, denies the allegations: "[Isaac] is a guy who is a blood-thirsty killer, trying to work off a life sentence, and for some reason his accusations are taken as fact?"
