Los Angeles officials have apologised to the family of Notorious B.I.G. for releasing the late rapper's autopsy to the public before notifying them.
A gruesome report detailing the coroner's findings was released on Friday (07Dec12), 15 years after the hip-hop icon, real name Christopher Wallace, was gunned down on 9 March, 1997.
Now detectives at the Los Angeles Police Department's Robbery-Homicide Division have reached out to Wallace's family to make amends for the "premature" autopsy, calling the release an "administrative error".
Commanding Officer of Robbery-Homicide Division Captain Billy Hayes says, "Our detectives personally spoke with the Wallace family last night, and apologised for not notifying them prior to the release.
"Obviously this has been a challenging case for us to solve. We hope that witnesses or other people with information will come forward and give us the clues we need to solve this case."
