Ex-LAPD Detective Hits Vh1 To Bring Forth Notorius B.I.G. Murder Accusations
Greg Kading, who was assigned to the New York rapper’s second murder investigation in 2006, claims to have a confession for the 1997 murder. According to Kading, Death Row Records CEO, Suge Knight, was behind the killing, which occurred in a drive by shooting on March 9, 1997, in Los Angeles.
Kading claims that Theresa Swann, Knight’s girlfriend, gave him a confession, affirming that Suge ordered the murder, and hired LA gang member, Wardell “Poochie” Fouse, to execute his wishes. Kading was removed from the case in 2009, due to an ethics violation, resulting in the leads he had made not being followed up.
Kading also spoke on Swann’s confession in March, on the 15th anniversary of Biggie Smalls’s death.
“Wardell ‘Poochie’ Fouse was paid to kill Biggie,” he asserted. “At the time, he was a 36-year old member of the Mob Piru Bloods. According to several Death Row insiders and FBI informants, Poochie was a down-for-the-cause, hardcore gang member. Confidential sources from the Death Row entourage, the Mob Pirus, and [Suge's girlfriend, identified in Kading's book by the alias "Theresa Swann"], said Poochie had done shootings for Suge in the past. Reggie Wright Jr. — who was the head of Death Row security — said Suge and Poochie’s relationship was different than other members of the gang. They had a very secretive and exclusive relationship.”
