Long-sealed Notorious B.I.G. autopsy released

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Authorities have released a long-sealed autopsy report showing that rapper Notorious B.I.G. was shot four times in a 1997 drive-by shooting in Los Angeles.

The report describes one of the shots as fatal to the rapper, whose real name was Christopher Wallace. That shot tore through his left lung, heart and colon.

The killing has been the subject of police and FBI investigations, and remains one of Los Angeles' highest-profile unsolved homicides. Wallace was killed after leaving a music industry event.

Chief Coroner Investigator Craig Harvey says a security hold placed on the report's release was lifted last week.

The lawyer for Notorious B.I.G.'s family and widow said Friday that it is ridiculous that arrests haven't been made in the rapper's 1997 killing since he's been told that the case has been solved.

Perry Sanders Jr. says a former police detective has told him that the case was solved years ago and a current member of the police force has also confirmed that to him.

Los Angeles police spokesman Richard French declined to comment, saying the killing of Notorious B.I.G. remains an open investigation.

It's funny to me how the haters that left  negative and racist comments about this article took time out to read this article. If Biggie wasn't relevant to you then you would not have given the article a second glance. You lames are funny to me.
