Faith Evans Wants To Reopen Biggie Case: "They Know Who Did It"

Last week Grammy award winning songstress Faith Evans sat down with Huff Post Live and while there she spoke on the untimely death of her husband, the Notorious B.I.G. The rapper was brutally murdered on March 9, 1997 in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles, California which led to his death only an hour later.

Wallace's murder remains unsolved and there are many theories regarding the identities and motives of the murderers. Originally deemed a cold case in 2005, the criminal investigation into Smalls' murder was re-opened in July 2006 to look for new evidence to help the city defend the civil lawsuits brought by the Wallace family but, it was closed in 2009. But it looks like Evans is ready to change that. In her interview she expressed that while, “justice may never be served, [she] would love if one day the L.A.P.D would consider reopening the case.”

The Grammy Award-winning singer, who was still married to Biggie when he was fatally gunned down in 1997, still has her suspicions about the events surrounding the shooting. “I just feel like in our hearts, we — me and his mom — feel like we know what happened,” Evans told host Nancy Redd.

Evans pointed to the Los Angeles Police Department, which had been investigating the crime along with the FBI but never found the killer.

“We know he was murdered, but we believe that the LAPD knows who’s responsible. That’s what we believe,” Evans said.

The songstress added that Biggie’s family would “love” to see the investigation surrounding his death reopened one day:

All we can do is hope that that happens. But we’re just happy that we’re here to preserve his legacy and [make sure] his kids are happy and they’re living great lives. They realize the importance that he played in his short time, not only on this earth, but even shorter time in the music industry. He, obviously not knowing, he definitely built something for them.
