According to various reports, the man who had a part in the death of legendary rapper The Notorious B.I.G. has escaped from an Atlanta prison. Clayton Armstrong Hill is currently on the run from law enforcement.
There are documents signed by the United States Magistrate, Judge Russell G. Vineyard, giving a vague description of how Hill escaped. Apparently, Clayton Armstrong Hill just walked off the prison grounds without being detected. Nobody noticed he was gone until it was time to do a bed check. Deputy U.S. Marshall Clay M. Cleveland says, “I was notified by officials … that inmate Clayton Armstrong Hill walked off the grounds. A bed count was conducted to verify Hill’s status and at approximately 6:40 p.m. Hill was identified as missing.”
What kind of prison was Hill in that made it so easy to just walk off, you ask? Clayton Armstrong Hill was placed in a medium security prison after he plead guilty to upwards of 100 counts of fraudulent federal income tax returns in the mid-2000s. In his book “Diary of An Ex-Terrorist” Hill confessed that he was an accessory after the fact in the Biggie murder. In the book, Hill implicates the Nation of Islam as being a part of the murder and subsequent cover up. He became involved when he helped a man who claimed to be the person who shoot the fatal bullets into Biggie’s truck that fateful night in 1997.
Two Golden State Warriors fans were killed in a shooting following Thursday night’s playoff game in Oakland.
Two men, identified as residents of Contra Costa County, apparently were headed home from the game on Interstate 880 in a white 2010 Porsche Panamera when someone in a dark-colored SUV opened fire with a semi-automatic pistol, killing the driver, 30-year-old Christopher Beardon. The 28-year-old passenger, Terrance Marks, fled the car or was ejected as it struck the guardrail and veered into traffic, and he was struck and killed by another car. He also had been shot.
Police are seeking help from fans who attended the game and studying surveillance video from Oracle Arena in hopes of identifying possible suspects. The victims were outfitted in Warriors gear and had ticket stubs from the game, according to Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson, who spoke to local news outlets.
Police do not believe it was a road rage incident based on the evidence, including the number of shots fired.
The freeway was shut down for hours, snarling traffic leaving the Warriors’ season-ending 94-82 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
A Texas jury has sentenced the 22-year-old son of former NBA player Nick Van Exel to 60 years in prison in the shooting death of a longtime friend.
Nickey Maxwell Van Exel received the punishment Friday after his father wept on the witness stand and apologized to the family of Bradley Bassey Eyo. The same jury in Dallas County in North Texas found the younger Van Exel guilty of murder on Thursday.
Prosecutors had sought a capital murder conviction.
Nickey Maxwell Van Exel fatally shot the friend in December 2010 and dumped his body at Lake Ray Hubbard on the eastern outskirts of Dallas.
His father, Nick Van Exel, played 13 seasons in the NBA and is now a player development instructor for the Atlanta Hawks.
Here are some highlights in case you don’t know or forgot about Nick “The Quick”
Rapper G. Dep was convicted Tuesday in a 1993 murder to which he suddenly confessed in 2010, stunning police.
Born Trevell Coleman, G. Dep, 37, faces at least 15 years in prison at his sentencing, set for May 8.
The rapper, a married father who flirted with fame in the late 1990s and early 2000s as a member of Sean Combs’ roster, reopened the cold case murder of John Henkel when he walked into a New York police precinct to say he’d fired at someone on a Harlem street corner when he was about 17 to 19.
G. Dep had apparently been wrestling with his conscience for some time. His life spiraled into disarray with a slate of arrests on drug, trespassing and other charges. He had finished a drug-treatment program and had released a new album online in the months before he came clean.
“I couldn’t move on and keep trying to satisfy myself if I didn’t deal with that,” he told the hip hop magazine XXL in a jailhouse interview published in June. ” … I didn’t know what was going to be the outcome, but that was the only way I knew to deal with it.”
The victim had grabbed the rapper’s .40-caliber gun, and he pulled it back and fired at the man three times, G. Dep told authorities in a recorded statement played during his trial. After the gunfire, he said, he rode off on a bicycle, unsure whether the man had been struck. G. Dep didn’t testify at trial.
Authorities paired his account with the 1993 death of Henkel, 32. Henkel was shot three times with a .40-caliber gun at the same corner in October 1993, when G. Dep was nearing his 19th birthday.
“The more you study the evidence, you’ll see it just matches up too greatly for coincidence,” Assistant District Attorney David Drucker said in an opening statement.
But G.Dep’s attorney Anthony Ricco questioned whether police had made the right match. He noted discrepancies between G. Dep’s statement and Henkel’s shooting – including that the rapper said he thought the shooting happened in February or March, rather than the fall, and described the victim as blond and clean-shaven when Henkel had brown hair and wore facial hair.
The rapper, he said, has no way of knowing for certain whether Henkel was indeed the man he shot. He ultimately filled in some of the details from information police gave him, the lawyer said.
G. Dep turned down an offer to plead guilty in exchange for a guaranteed 15-years-to-life sentence that is now the minimum he faces, Ricco said.
Regardless, he remains convinced he did the right thing by coming forward, said Ricco.
“He has a conscience and a heart, and his conscience and his heart brought him to where he is today,” Ricco said after court. “He’s probably making the most powerful statement a rapper of his era can make, which is to be accountable and to do the right thing.”
G. Dep’s wife and mother wept after hearing the verdict and his relatives are heartbroken and torn about his decision to speak up, Ricco said.
Henkel’s relatives didn’t testify at the trial. But one of his brothers followed it through news accounts.
“I’m thankful that the justice system worked for this, for my brother’s benefit and my family,” Werner Henkel said by phone after hearing of the verdict.
