Does the government know where Tupac is? To put it simply… no. How do we know? The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) decided to make a tweet about it today:
No, we don’t know where Tupac is. #twitterversary
— CIA (@CIA) July 7, 2014
So, apparently, that settles it, right?
Not really. Since September 7, 1996, after Tupac was shot multiple times in Las Vegas, Nevada, and would later die in the hospital 6 days later — fans and conspiracy-theorists alike have all thrown their two cents in on what happened.
Many believe he never died, but staged his own death. Others believe that when he was “born again” and performed on stage at the Coachella music festival, it wasn’t just a show of amazing 3-D holographic technology, some believe it was actually him that took the stage.
And buried within quite a few other conspiracy theories that have surfaced in the past 14 years — the most convincing evidence to some die-hard fans — is the fact that in two videos released after he died, he was sporting some kicks that were not available to the world until after he died.
So the question is: How did he get those shoes?
We may never know why the CIA wanted to rekindle the controversy today via Twitter, but they did. They hashtagged the tweet “#twitterversary” and used the “Tupac Tweet” to celebrate their one-month anniversary, or better known to the cyber community, as a ‘twitterversary.’
But not all agencies dismiss having records or knowledge on Tupac. John Greenewald, Jr., curator of The Black Vault document archive, says the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has released his official file and it may shed a bit more light on if he really did die, how it actually happened.
“When it comes to ‘FBI Files’ on someone, sometimes, it can be kind of boring. Other times, it just adds more fuel to the conspiracy fire and researchers find them fascinating,” says Greenewald. “Tupac’s file profiles an investigation by the FBI on an extortion scheme made by the Jewish Defense League (JDL), know to be an organization that has been characterized as terrorist group.”
The scheme was simple. Make threats against a celebrity, in this case, Tupac. Then, follow up with him shortly thereafter and offer protection for a “fee” in hopes they would get a lot of money, all for protecting the victim from, well, no one.
The FBI file revealed that Tupac was not the only victim of JDL’s extortion plot — they also did the same thing to the late rapper Eazy-E who was named in the file.
The FBI was informed about the plots, and initiated their investigation in 1997, after both rappers were deceased.
Greenewald also noted another discovery in the file, “In addition to Tupac and Eazy-E, there was a third ‘victim’ that was noted in the file. However, the identity is unknown, as the information is blacked out and redacted in the file.”
Who could this be?
Could the 1995 death of Eazy-E, the 1996 death of Tupac and the 1997 investigation by the FBI of the JDL’s extortion plot be related?
No one can say for sure – but if the identity of the third victim is ever revealed – their time of death could be very important.
