Keefe D Trial: Tupac Murder Suspect Denied Release from Jail as Judge Rejects $750K Bail from ‘Middleman’

More news from Las Vegas today surrounding the ongoing Duane “Keefe D” Davis trial.

The ex gang member was dealt with some unfortunate news, as he was denied bail ahead of his upcoming trial. Davis is accused of murdering late music star Tupac Shakur, and is facing trial this November.

Shakur was murdered on September 13th, 1996 in a Las Vegas shooting, yet the killer was never officially found. 

Davis was fighting to secure a $750,000 bond nine months after he was arrested and charged with murder on September 29, 2023.

But on Tuesday morning, a judge denied Davis’ plea to get out of jail before his impending trial.

Davis’ court-appointed public defender first stated that his client was unable to raise the 10 percent needed to obtain a bond in order to be released.

Later, a man named Cash Jones said he wanted to bail  Davis out himself, which then prompted the hearing.

Jones told the court he wanted to do it as a “gift” to the 61-year old Davis, but prosecutors argued otherwise. Jones had previously claimed he wanted to bail out Davis in order to get TV rights of some kind for his story.

After hearing this evidence, the judge determined Davis should not profit from his alleged crimes, and denied the bail request.

This result means that the former self-proclaimed Southside Crip member, will remain in jail ahead of his trial.

Davis maintains his innocence towards playing a key role in Tupac’s murder, this despite having boasted about his alleged involvement in Tupac’s killing in multiple interviews, documentaries, and in his self-published memoir, Compton Street Legend.

Stay tuned for more news.
