Notorious B.I.G. Murder Investigator Dies Suddenly


Former Los Angeles Police Department detective Russell Poole, who believed a corrupt LAPD officer conspired with Suge Knight to kill rapper Christopher 'The Notorious B.I.G.' Wallace dies suddenly in LA…


According to reports Russell Poole was meeting with Los Angeles County Sheriff's homicide investigators about a cold case when he dropped dead of a suspected heart attack on Tuesday.

In 1997 Russell Poole was the lead investigator in the Biggie Smalls murder case but was removed from the investigation after uncovering a link between an LAPD officer and Suge Knight.

Poole quit the force in protest and later sued the LAPD to be able to go public with information from his investigation.

In 2011 Pooole told CNN, "I think I was getting too close to the truth. I think they feared the truth would be a scandal."

Poole was right. It was those cops from the Rampart division. Remember that TV show about bad cops called The Shield? Well, that show was about the worse cops known in L.A. history. The same cops who worked with Knight to get Biggie. Mmmph.

Russell Poole was one of the good guys. Too bad more LEOs don't come forward and expose the psychopath assholes they work with. the perception of police brutality and crooked cops is gonna make them all look bad.

RIP
