Rapper Tupac Shakur is dead, the conspiracy theories are all lies and the Las Vegas police should finally lay the ghost of the rap icon to rest, says filmmaker and investigative producer Mike Dorsey.
Dorsey, who worked on the acclaimed shows Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G and Murder Rap, is urging Las Vegas Police to finally kill 23 years of speculation about Tupac being alive.
Currently the murder case of the rapper remains open, even though Dorsey has met with cops to present his entire research including an eye witness statement that Tupac was gunned down by a Compton gang member Orlando Anderson.
Dorsey says it is time 'for justice for Tupac' and for the 'public to hear and accept the truth.' after over two decades of silence from law authorities.
In an exclusive interview, he admitted that the simple decision to admit the 'case is closed' would end endless claims that Tupac is alive

He is baffled and frustrated with the 'Orwellian' Vegas for not treating serious evidence credibly enough to act.
He adds that Tupac's family too want the case closed to end speculation and emotionally upsetting conspiracy theories.
Dorsey, who has spent six years investigating the Tupac case and meeting key players during his life and death, revealed that Orlando killed Tupac because of the "disrespect" showed to him after the rapper punched him at a Sin City casino.
Orlando then went with pals including uncle Keefe Davis to track down the star later in the night on the Strip in a white Cadillac unleashing a hail of Glock bullets into Pac's SUV driven by Suge Knight on the Vegas strip. Dorsey has passed on five confessions from Keefe about his role in the killing .
Dorsey insists that Suge Knight was not part of the assassination despite years of rumours, and that neither is he part of the ongoing conspiracies that Tupac is alive.
The respected documentarian reveals that Vegas homicide cops even met him in LA so that he could present all his gathered evidence. He says that was 18 months ago and the LVMP have gone quiet.

Dorsey insisted: "Tupac is dead. Let's get that straight. All the conspiracy theories are wrong and this ongoing conjecture can simply be ended by the Metro Police finally acknowledging all the evidence that is there. Contrary to popular belief, we know exactly who killed Tupac and so does the Metro Police'.
But Dorsey says that despite repeated attempts detectives working the investigation refuse to head his pleas to close the case.
He added: 'We have exchanged about 100 emails about the case. He probably won't be happy with me going public, but it's been 18 months and the case is still unresolved, so I feel like I have no choice. This is bigger than any of us. Maybe I want justice for Tupac more than LVMPD does – I hope not. It shouldn't be that way.
"Las Vegas Metro PD simply needs to announce that the case is closed. They can make an arrest or they can label it 'cleared/other' meaning they know who's responsible but prosecution isn't possible.
"In this case they could say it's because the shooter is dead (Anderson was fatally shot during a gang shootout in Compton in 1998) and you can't prosecute a dead man. But to continue to pretend that they don't know what happened when they clearly do know is crazy. It's almost Orwellian in the level of denial of reality by a government agency."
Dorsey continued: "I don't think they'll do anything without a major public outcry over it. We need the media and citizens to get informed, and to then be loud and to hold them accountable.
"Most of Tupac's fans and friends and even some of his family members accept that Crips from Compton killed him.
"Many of them want to see the case closed even more than I do. But I also think there's some cynicism in that community that the police don't care, and unfortunately Las Vegas police aren't doing anything to dispel those feelings."
Dorsey gathered a comprehensive evidence file while working alongside ex LAPD homicide detective Greg Kading, who led a three-year federal task force into the murders of rappers Tupac and Biggie. The pair believe that all testimony and gathered intel points to gang member Orlando Anderson being the shooter of Tupac on September 7 1996.
Dorsey produces and hosts the popular Dearly Departed Podcast with Hollywood historian Scott Michaels.
He has several crime documentaries and a scripted series in development, and is in the middle of writing his first crime novel.
