Detective Russell Poole, the man known for investigating the death of Notorious B.I.G has died.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Poole died of an apparent heart attack while speaking with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide investigators about a cold case.

In 1997, Poole was the lead investigator in Biggie’s untimely passing. Christopher Wallace, the late rapper’s legal name, was shot and killed in Los Angeles after leaving a Soul Train Music Awards after party.

Poole eventually filed a lawsuit against LAPD for preventing him to go public with the evidence, which went against his Fist Amendment rights. Poole went on to start up his own detective services.
