The Los Angeles Police Department is being forced to apologize to Christopher Wallace’s, (known as the Notorious B.I.G), family after the department released the late rappers autopsy report prior to notifying them.
The gruesome details into the murder of Wallace were revealed last week; however, E! News reports that the releasing of the details was premature as the family wasn’t even aware that autopsy would be released for the public to see.
The release is being called an “administrative error” and a statement from the LAPD has since been released. Commanding Officer of Robbery-Homicide Division Captain Billy Hayes informs, “Our detectives personally spoke with the Wallace family last night, and apologized for not notifying them prior to the release. Obviously this has been a challenging case for us to solve. We hope that witnesses or other people with information will come forward and give us the clues we need to solve this case."
Additionally, Hayes notes that with the release of the autopsy the LAPD hopes that it will “stimulate additional interest or bring forth witnesses or clues in the case.”
The investigation into the murder of Wallace is still ongoing. Wallace died at the age of 24, March 9,1997.
