Tupac Autopsy:

Was Tupac deliberately killed? In this article, Liz Worth, an investigative journalist and co-founder of the Source of Truth Project, an in-depth research project on the rapper's death, reveals how the autopsy evidence contradicts theories that Tupac was killed in a robbery gone wrong. She also examines how the rapper's death may have been connected to the War on Drugs.


Cathy Scott was employed as a reporter at the Las Vegas Sun when Tupac was gunned down on September 7, 1996, in a drive-by shooting near the Las Vegas Strip. She covered the case from the start and turned it into a book. The shooting occurred a few hours after the Mike Tyson-Bruce Seldon match, which Tupac and his music producer, Suge Knight, were in Las Vegas to attend. Tupac died from his injuries six days later, and Scott was the first to report Shakur's death.

Upon the book's release, the internal affairs bureau of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department launched an investigation into how the autopsy photo was released to the author. The investigation, which Scott has reported she did not participate in, ended 30 days later with no results. MTV News reported, the week of the book's release, that Tupac is dead, and publicized his "autopsy photo that should end all speculation as to whether the late rapper might still be alive," alluding to rumors that the star rapper and actor had faked his own death.

On September 7, 1996, Tupac Shakur was leaving a boxing event in Las Vegas when he was shot multiple times. Six days later, he was dead at 25. He left behind an ever-increasing fan base, a catalog of music and one of culture's most persistent mysteries. The presumption is that his death was caused by the volatile East Coast/Wast Coast rap war of the era, a feud that held Tupac and New York rapper Notorious B.I.G. as its avatars. Although nearly every fan has his or her own theory on who was involved in the young talent's death, his killing remains unsolved.

Whitney Houston was on the verge of a comeback when she was found unresponsive in her Beverly Hilton hotel room in February 2012. The 48-year-old had been in Los Angeles with plans to attend a pre-Grammys party and had just performed an impromptu duet two days before her sudden death. An autopsy showed that the music icon drowned face-down in a tub of water about 12 inches deep; the drowning was ruled as accidental, with the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use" listed as contributing factors.
