Go through the whole post to unveil the truth about Tupac’s death
A retired police officer has hinted that Tupac might still be alive.
David Myers, who is in a critical medical condition in hospital, claims he was paid $1.5 million to help the star fake his own death.
Tupac Shakur, or 2Pac as he was known on stage, died after he was hit in a drive-by shooting back in 1996 when he was just 25.
But Myers says he now wants the world to know the truth and from his death bed – he said: “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.”

However, the mystery deepens as it later emerged one of the original websites to report Myers’ extraordinary tale is using a fake image to represent the police officer on his deathbed, plunging the conspiracy theory into disrepute.
On September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot multiple times in a drive-by shooting at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He had been at the Mike Tyson vs Bruce Sheldon boxing match and been involved in a altercation with gang member Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson.
A short while later, while en route to night club a car pulled up alongside Shakur’s while he was standing with his head out of the sunroof and unknown occupants shot him, hitting him in the chest, pelvis, right hand, thigh and lung.
