Waymond Anderson, who is locked up for a separate crime not involving the slain rapper stated that he lied in an attempt to get money out of the city for the victim’s family:
Anderson’s deposition, first reported Wednesday in the Los Angeles Times, states that he was offered a portion of any settlement if he testified that former police Officer Rafael Perez told him that another ex-police officer, David Mack, was involved.
Both Mack and Perez have long denied any involvement in the March 9, 1997, murder of the New York rapper, also known as Biggie Smalls.
“I don’t know David Mack, I don’t know Rafael Perez,” Anderson said in the deposition. “It was a lie, and I’m ashamed of it.”
Somehow, somewhere, we need to get to the truth behind the slaying of Christopher Wallace. This is a tragedy and with all of the DNA and forensics science of our time, we should’ve been able to find a viable answer already.
