Tupac Shakur murder suspect finds someone to post his $750K bail

Updated June 21, 2024 - 2:21 pm

The man accused of orchestrating rapper Tupac Shakur’s killing in 1996 now has a bond company willing to post his bail.

Duane “Keffe D” Davis was indicted in September on a murder charge. In January, District Judge Carli Kierny set bail at $750,000 and ordered him to be under house arrest with high-level electronic monitoring if he posted it.

Since then, Davis has been held at the Clark County Detention Center. But on Thursday, a surety bond acceptance notice was filed, stating that a bond company called E-Bail was willing to post the bond.

Before being released, Davis must appear at a Tuesday source hearing to find out where he got the money for the bond. The hearing will determine whether or not the source of his funds is legitimate.

Davis’ trial is scheduled to start on Nov. 4. A person who answered the phone at the office of defense attorney Carl Arnold said they had no immediate comment.

The Clark County district attorney’s office and E-Bail did not respond to requests for comment Friday.
