He is the uncle of Orlando Anderson – one of Tupac’s known rivals – who authorities have long suspected in the rapper’s death.

Mr Anderson, who is said to have been involved in a casino brawl involving Tupac and his associates on the night of the star’s death, denied any involvement in the rapper’s killing at the time.

He died two years later in an unrelated gang shöôting.
