Pulitzer-prize winning reporter Chuck Philips, who wrote the story, and his supervisor, Deputy Managing Editor Marc Duvoisin, also apologized. Read more

Whatever happened to the reporter that linked Tupac's death to Biggie, Puffy and the LAPD? Although this particular 'snitch' turned out to be some fame seeking whore, I still believe it can still be tied to the 'Bad Boy' crew. I wish the truth and the whole truth would come out but I doubt that it ever will. Tupac knew who was behind it.
