Scene of Tupac’s Murder Now Available in VR App

True-life Crime Scenes Tied To The Notorious B.I.G And Tupac Shakur Murders Now Available For The First Time On Crimedoor.

CrimeDoor, the brand-new Augmented Reality app that accurately recreates True Crime scenes, today announced it has launched two additional CrimeDoors that are now available for users – recreated scenes around the murders of hip-hop/rap icons Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.

These two new CrimeDoors launch on the anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.’s death 24 years ago and are the latest additions to an offering of augmented reality doors surrounding some of the most talked-about murder cases, including Jeffrey Epstein, the Menendez brothers, the Delphi murders and Southern California’s Rebecca Zahau.

“These two compelling stories that intersect had a long-lasting effect on a lot of people, and we wanted to bring both together on the anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.’s death,” said Neil Mandt, Founder of CrimeDoor.

“As with all our CrimeDoors, we’ve made each experience entirely accurate using photos from the scene, with the hope that users may see it differently and potentially find a resolution.”

For the first time ever, police, the public and journalists alike have indefinite access to the crime scene through exact AR recreations of the crime scene photos on CrimeDoor.

Anyone can literally walk into the crime scene to examine the scene and evidence, whereas this access was previously only given to law enforcement on-site for a limited time.

Cold-Case Detective Paul Holes, famous for his involvement in the Zodiac, Golden State Killer, and Jaycee Dugard cases, has partnered with CrimeDoor on this mission.

Holes is working directly with the victims’ families to help bring renewed attention to cold cases and use the current technology to source the help of the public in bringing closure to these families. 

On September 7, 1996, multi-platinum selling artist Tupac was shot dead in Las Vegas.

Nobody has ever been charged for the murder, but as a consequence of the ongoing East Coast/West Coast rap beef that Biggie and Tupac’s rivalry had come to embody, and also of Tupac publicly blaming Biggie and Puffy for his non-fatal shooting in 1994, there were plenty who believed that the East Coast rap kingpins were behind Tupac’s murder.

The Notorious B.I.G. was murdered the early hours of March 9, 1997, shortly after he left a Vibe magazine party at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

As Biggie’s SUV — in which he was riding with a bodyguard and Lil’ Cease — waited at a red light, a vehicle pulled up alongside it, and a gunman opened fire. His bodyguard rushed Biggie to the hospital, but it was already too late. Both murders would never be solved.

In addition to the Augmented Reality doors, CrimeDoor uses geo-location to identify cases around the world. All profiles feature relevant articles, podcasts, videos and more – located in one place.
