Everyone knows that Tupac was shot down in a drive by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996, although lingering doubts have always remained about whether or not he was actually dead thanks to all the conspiracy nuts out there.
They might be onto something though after this surprising confession from Las Vegas policeman David Myers, who is currently in critical condition and doesn’t have long to live. He’s saying that he was paid $1.5 million in 1996 to help fake Tupac’s death when he was just 25 years old:
The world needs to know what I did. I’m ashamed that I let a price be put on my word and I cannot die without letting the world know.
Unfortunately, none of the news outlets covering this story seem to have any more details about it, other than the fact that Suge Knight was heavily involved with the cover-up (duh) and that it involved around 30 people, including medics, witnesses and police.

In addition to his payment, Myers still receives $10,000 every month to an offshore bank account to ensure his silence. He also stated that Pac and his crew know EVERYTHING about the people involved in the conspiracy so intimidate them with this knowledge to ensure that they’ll never talk.
Myers says that Tupac was there at the shooting and and took photographs of his body with fake bullet wounds in but also paid $50,000 for a body double which was taken to the morgue for him. This seems awfully cheap considering he paid Myers $1.5 million for his unspecified help during the conspiracy, but hey what do I know about faking my own death and counterfeit corpses?
To be honest though this all smells of bullshit. Although this man has no real reason to lie about this, the fact he doesn’t give a blow by blow account of it makes me think it isn’t real. It’s also convenient that he’s dropping this information when a film about Tupac has just been announced and it’s close to the anniversary of his death. I wouldn’t be surprised if the whole story was made up to be honest and David Myers didn’t even exist.
Sorry conspiracy nuts, it will probably be a while before this mystery is finally solved, if ever. I prefer this story about his last ever words anyway.
