With COVID-19 wreaking havoc in some of America’s largest cities, law enforcement has shifted their priorities, especially in Los Angeles, where upcoming rapper Pop Smoke’s murder case has gone unsolved.
In addition to witnesses not cooperating, the LAPD ran into new challenges when the pandemic hit the city.
Back in February, detectives revealed that they were having difficulties with getting witnesses to step up after the rising rapper was shot and killed on February 19th.
Now, even speaking to people in person poses safety concerns, thus slowing down any progress of solidifying witness testimonies.
Pop Smoke’s murder was initially assumed to be a botched armed robbery. Later on, they claimed Pop was, indeed, a targeted hit and the motive has been a puzzle ever since.
