Jada Pinkett Smith hopes for closure after arrest in Tupac Shakur’s murder

Jada Pinkett Smith expressed her hope for closure after authorities announced the arrest of Duane Keith Davis, also known as “Keefy D” or “Keffe D,” in connection with the unsolved murder of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur. Smith, who had a close relationship with Shakur, took to Instagram to say, “Now I hope we can get some answers and have some closure. R.I.P. Pac.”

Davis, 60, had previously admitted to being in the car alongside Shakur on the fateful night of September 7, 1996, in Las Vegas when the rapper was fatally shot. While the indictment does not directly accuse Davis of pulling the trigger, it alleges that he orchestrated the plan to kill Shakur in retaliation for an earlier altercation involving Shakur and Marion “Suge” Knight, head of Death Row Records.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Jason Johansson, in a press conference, referred to Davis as the “shot caller” for his group, stating that this arrest marks a significant moment in a three-decade-long quest for justice.

The murder of Tupac Shakur has remained a subject of fascination, conspiracy theories, and speculation for decades. With Davis’s arrest, there is newfound hope that the long-standing mystery surrounding the rapper’s death may finally be unravelled.
