In an interview conducted by VLADTV, Kading confirmed that there were informants were who told police who killed Tupac. Shockingly one of those informants was a family member of Orlando Anderson. An aunt of Orlando Anderson cooperated with LAPD to rat out her own nephew.
To make matters even more bizarre, Orlando’s aunt volunteered herself to police. Ininitally she would go by the alias “Candy” when speaking to the LAPD. “Candy’s” motives was that she was not a part of nor a fan of the gang violence. Gang violence that had escalated since the death of Tupac Shakur.
Informants working the case were paid to provide evidence. “Everybody has their own motive, it’s not always because you’re trying to get yourself out of trouble, sometimes its because you’re getting paid. There are informants who do get paid by the police.”
