On September 7, 1996, Tupac Shakur was leaving a boxing event in Las Vegas when he was shot multiple times. Six days later, he was dead at 25. He left behind an ever-increasing fan base, a catalog of music and one of culture's most persistent mysteries. The presumption is that his death was caused by the <a href='http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/Music/06/16/new.york.tupac.shooting/index.html' target='_blank'>volatile East Coast/Wast Coast rap war of the era</a>, a feud that held Tupac and New York rapper Notorious B.I.G. as its avatars. Although nearly every fan has his or her own theory on who was involved in the young talent's death, his murder remains unsolved.
