(Video) Two Of Tupac’s Former Bodyguards Died As His Case Still Remains Unsolved
It’s been over 21 years since iconic rapper Tupac Shukar was killed and still the case is unsolved. There have many theories as to what happened to Tupac on the fateful Las Vegas night where he was gunned down at the age of 25. Many people claimed to know who the killer was including his former bodyguard Frank Alexander. Sadly, in 2013, Alexander died at the young age of 54. According to The Patch, Alexander was found dead in his Murrieta, California home. It appears that he died from a self-inflicted gun shot wound. The former Marine worked as Tupac’s personal bodyguard up until his death. He also served as a bodyguard for Snoop and Tha Dogg Pound.
After Tupac was killed, Alexander no longer worked for Death Row. Sharing that he was more than Tupac’s bodyguard, Frank looked at Tupac as a close friend. Tupac’s unsolved death consumed Alexander and he was determined to find out who murdered him. Alexander co-produced classic documentaries such as Tupac: Before I Wake (2001) and Tupac: Assassination (2009), as well as writing Got Your Back (1998), about his time spent with ‘Pac. Alexander spoke out in many interviews that he received death threats from Death Row as he was told that Suge wanted him dead.
Before Frank Alexander’s death, he was reportedly afraid that Suge Knight and Death Row affiliates were trying to kill him. Fearing for his life, he tapped his phone and former Tupac bodyguard Michael Moore can be allegedly heard telling Alexander that people were out to get him. With so many conspiracy theories surrounding Pac’s death, Suge Knight revealed that he believed that his ex-wife Sharitha and former Death Row Records security chief Reggie Wright Jr. were behind Tupac’s murder. Wright Jr. vehemently denies the claim and stated that many people who have made those claims are now dead.
I believe in karma, Wright Jr. said. All these people are dropping dead. I keep telling people God don’t like ugly. I hope people learn a lesson from this.
One of the people that Wright Jr. is referring to is Tupac’s former bodyguard Michael Moore. It’s unclear when Moore passed but sources say that he allegedly died from an accidental overdose of medication that he was taking from a back injury. Not only have Alexander and Moore died, LAPD detective Russell Poole, is now deceased as well. In 2015, Poole told Vice that he believed Sharitha and Wright Jr. were indeed behind the murder as part of a coup of Death Row Records.
Suge wasn’t divorced yet and if he died in that hit, she’d get most of everything, said Poole. So she went to Wright Jr., who was in charge of Death Row and ran it while Suge was in prison.
According to The Rolling Stones, Poole, the main investigator for Notorious B.I.G.’s murder, reportedly suffered a heart attack while meeting with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide investigators to discuss a cold case and was rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
