The L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. is irate at Fox over its “Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?” special that accused a Sheriff’s commander of bungling the investigation, and the Department is demanding an apology.
The show, hosted by Ice-T and Soledad O’Brien, misidentified Commander Stephen D. Katz as the lead investigator into Biggie‘s murder. The show repeatedly showed Katz’ face and his badge and said the way he handled the case was disgraceful. All incorrect, the Dept. says … he had nothing to do with the investigation.
In fact, the Sheriff’s Dept. says they had no involvement in Biggie’s investigation … it was all LAPD.
The Sheriff’s Dept. is demanding a public apology and retraction from Fox, claiming the references to Katz and the Dept. were defamatory.
We reached out to Fox .. so far, no word back.
