LOS ANGELES, Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- It is with great sadness that friend and colleague Michael Douglas Carlin, announces that Russell Poole died suddenly while at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department to discuss the murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls and the various attempted murders of Suge Knight. He was the original lead investigator on the cases while working for the LAPD as a Detective during his distinguished 19 year career with the department.
"Russell was working on his new book, "Chaos Merchants" and while it is still in a draft format he wanted the book to be released to the public if something happened to him," says Carlin.
Michael Carlin has written two books with Russell along with publishing numerous articles together.
Russell is an American Hero who blew the whistle on the corruption inside the LAPD at the time of the Rampart Scandal. He stood for truth and justice and vowed to pursue the killers of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls always wanting to follow only the truth wherever it leads.
He knew the danger he was in by pursuing these cases as nobody wants to face life in prison which the killers will surely face if they are ever brought to justice. Russell always held out hope that law enforcement would reopen the cases as the new information was bubbling to the surface. We are hopeful that the new information in his book will lead to the successful prosecution of the killers who are guilty of premeditated murder as both of these murders required planning.
