Eric Holder, the alleged murderer of Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle, has formally requested the prosecution to provide all evidence of past criminal investigations on Nip, The Blast reports. Holder’s attorney filed the request on Tuesday, hoping that the evidence will help the case of his defendant.
The full list of items also includes “any and all unredacted and unedited police and arrest reports related to his arrest for any criminal offense or suspected criminal conduct,” as well as “any and all investigative reports and their results of the decedent as it relates to any criminal investigations before his death.” They also requested information regarding any “gang affiliation, gang membership, and participation in gang activities by the decedent.”
It was recently reported by the New York Times that Nip was under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department shortly before his death at the end of March, which likely prompted the request. However, the department refuted the claim, and stated that Nip was “never the target” of an investigation into alleged gang activity at his Marathon Clothing shop and its adjacent strip mall.
Eric Holder was indicted for the killing of Nipsey Hussle back in May. He was indicted of one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, one count of posession of a firearm by a felon, and two counts of assault with a firearm.
