Jimmy Henchman Associate Admits To Shooting Tupac In 1994
According to Allhiphop.com, a man has admitted to shooting Tupac Shakur in November of 1994 inside of New York's Quad Studios, after being paid $2,500 dollars by James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond.
Dexter Isaac, a former friend of Rosemond, is an inmate currently serving life in prison for murder, robbery and other offenses.
Isaac came forward Wednesday (June 15th) with the information on the eve of what would be Tupac's 40th birthday.
He confessed to his involvement in the November 30th, 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur to AllHipHop.com, after Jimmy Henchman identified him in a statement, relating to Henchman's indictment for dealing numerous kilos of cocaine.
"I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman]," Dexter Isaac told AllHipHop.com from prison. "I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie's] mothers some closure."
Henchmen, who is currently on the run from Federal officials, claimed that Dexter Isaac, along with other incarcerated inmates were cooperating with the government in an investigation of his alleged drug dealing activities.
"If the government is relying on informants like Winston “Winnie” Harris, a convicted drug dealer and Jamaican deportee, who came to me and motioned via hand signal that he was forced to wear a wire and begged me to skip town or Dexter Isaac who is serving life in prison plus 30 years, then I'm sure I will not be offered a fair trial," Henchman said in a statement released to AllHipHop.com in May of 2011.
Dexter Isaac told AllHipHop.com that he decided to confess to the robberies to prove Jimmy Henchman's involvement, in addition to clearing his conscious for the shooting.
Isaac said he was comfortable going on record relating to the robbery and shooting, since the statute of limitations had expired. Legally, no one can be prosecuted for the assault at this time.
The November '94 shooting of Tupac Shakur was the beginning of a deadly feud between Skakur and the Notorious B.I.G., who Tupac accused of being involved in the shooting.
Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G. were both murdered years later, and their murders were never solved.

Pac had also rapped on "Against All Odds" from his Makaveli album that Jimmy Henchman had an involvement in his 1994 robbery and shooting.
