More than 350 pages of FBI files on the mysterious murder of Christopher Wallace, better known as Notorious B.I.G, have been released to the public on the FBI’s official website. The files about the murder investigation were released Thursday in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, a federal law that allows for disclosure of previously unreleased information and documents controlled by the government.
Wallace’s files can be found in “The Vault,” a newly designed section on the FBI website that allows the public to view documents scanned into digital copies. According to the Vault home for Wallace, the FBI began a “civil rights/color of law investigation into the murder,” which took place in Los Angeles in March 1997. The case was closed in 2005, and remains unsolved.
FBI.gov describes the new “Vault” section as their “new electronic reading room, containing more than 2,000 documents that have been scanned from paper into digital copies so you can read them in the comfort of your home or office.” Die hard Biggie fans can download the files on the 18-month investigation as a PDF file right on their personal computer.
