A retired police officer has urged authorities to arrest a man he believes murdered rapper Tupac in 1996.
Greg Kading, a former detective with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), worked on the Tupac murder case after the star was shot dead in his car on the Las Vegas Strip as he left a Mike Tyson fight.
The ex-cop claimed that the man Vegas police need to arrest is Keffe D Davis, 56, a gang member and "self-confessed murderer".
In the 23 years since Tupac's murder, police in Las Vegas haven't arrested a single person in relation to the shooting.
Keffe D – also known as Keefe D – has spoken out multiple times about his alleged involvement in Tupac's death, including on tape to Greg himself.
He also wrote a shocking book called Compton Street Legend in which he detailed how the shooting apparently went down and describing the death as "just another day in the office".
"Keffe D should be arrested, Keffe D is a self-confessed murderer," Greg, 56, told The Sun.
"He has confessed publicly multiple times about his role in the murder of Tupac.
"And I cannot think of any case in American crime history where a confessing murderer is allowed to continue and go speak blatantly about his involvement in a crime. It is unprecedented."
Greg went on: "He has admitted he got the Glock handgun for Anderson. His confession, which has been corroborated, is more than enough to arrest him and resolve the case and end it from being an unresolved investigation."
Tupac died in a hail of bullets fired at his BMW, driven by Suge Knight, in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996.
The alleged killer was Keffe's nephew Orlando "Baby Lane" Anderson.
In the years since, other gang members, as well as LAPD investigators, have also come forward and detailed Keffe's apparent involvement in the murder.

Greg said he was there when Keffe gave testimony in 2007 when the gang lynchpin-turned-informant set out how the killing was carried out.
At the time, Keffe was facing life in prison after Greg's team arrested him for PCP and cocaine trafficking.
They hoped Keffe would give them insight into the figures connected to the murder of rapper Biggie Smalls in LA's Miracle Mile in 1997.

After striking a deal, Keffe confessed everything while being secretly recorded.
But after setting out what had happened, Greg was told to pass all his information on to Las Vegas police, which he did.
"The fact they appeared to do nothing in the 11 years since our investigation was frustrating," he said.
Las Vegas are yet to comment publicly on Greg's comments.
