Unsealed Transcript Reveals Details Of Nipsey Hussle's Murder
New details have surfaced regarding Nipsey Hussle’s murder case via recently unsealed transcript from a grand jury hearing. According to Complex via the Los Angeles Times and Vulture, the new findings in the 515-page transcript includes what is said to be "a great deal of surveillance footage" of the shooting.
In the documents, a woman identified as Witness 1 is said to have told authorities that she drove Nipsey’s alleged killer, Eric Holder, to the Slauson and Crenshaw area on the day the rapper was murdered. Once they arrived, Nipsey was seen outside of his Marathon clothing store. Nipsey’s presence was only mentioned by Witness 1, with Holder allegedly having no initial reaction. The document goes on to say that while Holder waited for an order from Master Burger, he’s alleged to have walked over and spoke with Nipsey several times. At one point, older allegedly asked Nipsey if he has "snitch."
When Witness 1 drove Holder from the Slauson and Crenshaw area, he pulled out a semiautomatic gun, which the woman says wasn’t on his person at the time. He then asked the woman to drive around the block. Witness 1 then told Holder that she would not allow "a drive-by" to be instigated from her car. The car was later parked in a lot near Slauson and 58th Place, allegedly at "Holder’s urging." The woman was allegedly told to start inside the car, and Holder exited. Witness 1 said she eventually heard gunshots and became worried. When Holder returned to the car, he allegedly told her to drive away and threatened her.
Vulture reports that Holder spent the night at Witness 1’s mother’s house before being turned down hen he asked to stay at her apartment the following morning. Holder allegedly convinced Witness 1 to secure him a hotel room using her ID, though she did not provide the payment. That same day, Holder began being mentioned as a suspect on the news, with stories surfacing that included a description of the car Witness 1 was driving. She later did an interview with authorities.
There were also testimonies during the grand jury hearing from the medical examiner, detectives, the District Attorney’s office, and "key witnesses" Kerry Lathan and Herman Douglas.
