Duane “Keefe D” Davis has formally entered a not guilty plea in a Las Vegas courthouse regarding his alleged involvement in the murder of 2Pac. Pitchfork reported Davis’ plea during his formal arraignment on Thursday (November 2), where he stood represented by a public defender.

This change in legal representation came after a divergence from his initial choice of prominent Las Vegas attorney Ross Goodman. Reports suggest their separation resulted from a failure to reach an agreement on payment terms, leading Davis to claim an inability to afford a lawyer. He is currently being represented by attorneys Robert Arroyo and Charles Cano from the public defender’s office.

During the brief period when Goodman represented Keefe D, he portrayed the state’s case as weak and emphasized his client’s commitment to facing the charges. Goodman advocated for Davis’s release on his own recognizance, stating that he wasn’t a flight risk and had been a long-time resident of Henderson.

The murder trial involving 2Pac has faced significant hurdles over nearly three decades, exacerbated by Suge Knight’s reluctance to testify regarding the events of September 7, 1996.

TMZ’s conversation with the Death Row Records co-founder revealed his surprise at Keefe D’s arrest, expressing reluctance and insisting he wouldn’t want to see Davis arrested. Knight highlighted their shared past, even playing on the same football team as kids. He refrained from making direct accusations, stating he wouldn’t wish prison upon anyone.

Knight also disputed popular beliefs regarding Keefe D’s nephew, Orlando Anderson, asserting that Anderson was not the shooter involved in the fatal drive-by shooting that took 2Pac’s life. Suge emphasized that only he and 2Pac knew the truth of what transpired that night and maintained Anderson’s innocence.

Keefe D remains the only living suspect in the case, allegedly orchestrating the attack as retaliation for the confrontation between 2Pac’s entourage and Anderson at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the fateful night of September 7, 1996. Hours later, the fatal drive-by shooting occurred at the intersection of East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane, resulting in 2Pac’s demise and injuries to Suge Knight. 2Pac succumbed to his injuries six days later, marking the tragic end of the renowned rapper at just 25 years old.
