On November 2nd, official documents were released which stated Wu Tang Clan founders RZA and Raekwon (Real names Robert Fitzgerald and Corey Woods) were investigated by the FBI in 1999 for a revenge plot.
There is speculation the band members paid a powerful New York drug dealing dynasty run by brothers Anthony and Harvey Christian, to reportedly kill 17-year-old Boo Boo Estella and for robbing the band members’ families.
The other link to the Wu Tang Clan came from the Christian brother’s lawyer, Michael Gold, who speculated as such in an interview with the Staten Island Advance.
“These reports seem to suggest someone else was liable for those murders. I’m not suggesting that Wu-Tang committed these crimes. The FBI did,” Gold told the Staten Island Advance. “What I’m trying to ascertain is their stated belief in an official file that Wu-Tang ordered this homicide.”
The Christian Brothers were sentenced last October for their 20-year drug dealing empire in Staten Island’s, Clifton neighborhood. Their lawyer is demanding that any and all relevant police files be turned in immediately so that his clients may be exonerated before their trial.
Gold stated the reports will hopefully prove that Estrella was murdered “at the instruction of members of the Wu-Tang Clan, a rap group, as revenge for robberies” so his clients names will be cleared of any wrong doing.
A former member of the Bloods gang, informant, Brian Humphreys has mentioned in numerous interviews that Estrella robbed RZA’s little brother, which led to the Christian brothers being hired to murder him.
In an interesting turn of events, according to the New York Post, prosecutors believe that any possible Wu-Tang connection has no effect on whether or not the Christian brother are guilty and their trial is pending.
What will happen if RZA and Raekwon are tied to the murder? Well, that has yet to be seen.
