Clayton Hill is currently serving time in a federal prison. This week he told HipHopDx that he knows who killed Notorious B.I.G.. This is not one of those hey I know who the real killer books are by OJ and coming soon to a store near you, Casey Anthony. Clayton says that he is the one who took possession of the gun used to kill B.I.G. Seriously? OK, that is a big big lead. He says that he accepted from a man he knew as Dawoud Muhammad who told him when handing over the gun that he used it to kill B.I.G.
Now for all the holes in the story. Why the guy would still have the gun and not have thrown it away somewhere is beyond me. You know where Clayton said he met this guy? In Atlanta. You know where B.I.G. was killed? Los Angeles. Oh, and Clayton told the site he met Muhammad at the Greyhound bus station. So, let me get this straight. This Muhammad guy kills B.I.G., then gets on a bus, travels all the way across the country for three days and then hands the gun off when he get there. Huh. Why would you not drop it off in a dumpster in Kansas? Why not drop it on the ground at the shootings? Clayton says there were no fingerprints, so dump the gun at the shooting and be done with it. Oh, and Clayton also has a book coming out. So, he could use the publicity.
At the time of the investigation, the main suspect was a guy named Amir Muhammad, but Clayton was shown photos of him and could not positively identify him as the guy he saw in Atlanta.
