Tupac “2Pac” Shakur died 24 years ago on September 13, 1996, after being shot in a Las Vegas drive-by shooting. The shooting occurred around 11:15 pm est on September 7, 1996, when the car he was riding in with Suge Knight stopped at a red light at East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane.
While they were stopped at the red light, a Cadillac pulled up and fired shots into the vehicle. Tupac was hit four times, twice in the chest, once in the arm, and once in the thigh, according to reports.
Tupac was taken to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. He was announced to be in critical condition. After 6 days, Tupac died after suffering respiratory failure which led to cardiac arrest, he was 25.
Many conspiracy theorists believe that Tupac faked his death and is living in plain sight after 24 years. YouTuber DJ Skandalous had some questions about the legitimacy of an image of Tupac lying dead and the coroner’s report.
He says there are “discrepancies all over the place” on the coroner’s report, some of which are about his height and weight.
DJ Skandalous points out that a 1996 drivers’ license shows Tupac height as 5’ 10 and weighed around 168lbs but the coroner’s report says he was 6 ft tall and weighed 215 lbs.
He also questions the authenticity of the autopsy pictures.
“A thing I noticed about the autopsy picture is the Machiavelli tattoo that he had on his neck was missing. This could be because the photo was pixelated and is not hd- but from what i see, the machiavelli tattoo is not there”.
He continues with more questions than answers about the autopsy photos. He goes on to say:
“The other thing I found suspicious about the autopsy picture is that Tupac was in a hospital in a coma for six days, but when you look at the autopsy picture that’s leaked on Google images, his head is shaven and his face is shaven”.
“why would they shave his face and his head if he’s in a coma and in critical condition”.
Photos that have surfaced of Tupac have been the center of the conspiracies for years. A photo surfaced of what appears to be an “older” Tupac.
An alleged photo of him dying in his hospital bed that is said to have mysteriously disappeared just after it was taken also raised many eyebrows.
Theories that have been lingering over the years include Tupac living in Cuba after former President Fidel Castro helped to get him there because there was a hit out on him. The wild and crazy theories don’t stop there. Other theorists believe that Tupac is being held in a Los Angeles prison after booking records from 2017 and 2019 appeared to match his identity.
Conspiracy theorists are not the only ones who felt that Tupac could still be alive. At one point former Death Row music executive Suge Knight believed that Tupac was still alive.
“All Eyez On Me” star Demetrius Shipp Jr. spoke out in an interview where he explains why the theories arent true.
What do you think? Is it possible that he is still alive or is this one theory that needs to be laid to rest? Let me know in the comments.
