Police detectives apologized to the family of Notorious B.I.G. for failing to warn them about the planned release of his autopsy report more than 15 years after he died in a drive-by shooting, the Los Angeles Police Department said Saturday.
The detectives had intended to notify the rapper’s family, but the report was released prematurely ‘due to an administrative error,’ the department said in a statement.
‘Our detectives personally spoke with the Wallace family (Friday) night, and apologized for not notifying them prior to the release’ said Capt. Billy Hayes, who heads LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division, which is investigating the killing.
