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.

During the investigation, Poole accused LAPD police officer, David Mack, of scheming with former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight to kill the New York rapper. But shortly after, Poole was forced by then, police chief, Bernard C. Mack, to cease all investigations on the accused officer.

Two years later, in protest to how the unit handled the investigation, Poole retired.

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.

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
