Ex-UCLA HC Jim Mora Told Najee Harris He Knew Who Killed Tupac On Recruiting Trip

Recruiting is a dirty game and has only gotten worse.

This story won’t help that case.

According to Rivals basketball reporter Rob Cassidy, while on a recruiting trip to UCLA, then head coach Jim Mora wanted Najee Harris so bad that Mora told him he knew who killed Tupac.

Such a really wild lie to tell someone to try to convince them to come to your school. Maybe Mora does know though. Seems really weird that out of all the people Mora is the one who knows the shooter.

Here are a couple of theories on who shot Tupac.

One year after the shooting, Sgt. Kevin Manning, who headed the investigation, told Las Vegas Sun investigative reporter Cathy Scott that Shakur’s murder “may never be solved”. The case slowed early in the investigation, he said, as few new clues came in and witnesses clammed up. Manning stated the investigation was at a standstill. E.D.I. Mean, a collaborator of Shakur’s and a member of Outlawz, said he was positive law enforcement knew “what happened” and added, “This is America. We found bin Laden.”

In 2002, the Los Angeles Times published a two-part story by Chuck Philips, titled “Who Killed Tupac Shakur?” based on a year-long investigation. Philips reported that “the shooting was carried out by a Compton gang called the Southside Crips to avenge the beating of one of its members by Shakur a few hours earlier. Orlando Anderson, the Crip whom Shakur had attacked, fired the fatal shots. Las Vegas police considered Anderson as a suspect and interviewed him only once, briefly. Anderson was killed nearly two years later in an unrelated gang shooting.” Philips’s article also implicated East Coast rappers, including The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac’s rival at the time, and several New York City criminals.

The second article in Philips’ series assessed the murder investigation and said that Las Vegas police had mismanaged the probe. His article stated that missteps of Las Vegas police: were discounting the fight that occurred just hours before the shooting, in which Shakur was involved in beating Anderson in the MGM Grand lobby; failing to follow up with a member of Shakur’s entourage who witnessed the shooting, who told Las Vegas police he could probably identify one or more of the assailants, but was killed before being interviewed; and failing to follow up a lead from a witness who spotted a white Cadillac similar to the car from which the fatal shots were fired and in which the shooters escaped.

Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper, reported in 2011 that the FBI released documents, as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request, revealing its investigation of the Jewish Defense League for extorting protection money from Shakur and other rappers after making death threats against them. In 2017, Knight claimed he might have been the target of the attack that killed Shakur, arguing that it was a hit on him as a staged coup to seize control of Death Row Records.
