Tattoo May Hold Clues to Solve Jam Master Jay Murder
Hip-hop icon Jam Master Jay's killer has never been identified, but a tattoo on the alleged gunman's neck could help investigators come closer to figuring out what occurred on October 30, 2002, the night the famed Run-D.M.C. deejay was gunned down in his Queens recording studio.
Jay's business partner, Randy Allen, spoke of his frustrations with the case to the New York Daily News. "This is a case that can be solved," he said. Allen was present at the time of shooting, and his sister, Lydia High, claims she saw a man with a tattooed neck fire a shot that killed Jam Master Jay. Investigators blame a a lack of cooperative witnesses for the stalled case.

"How can they be happy? Sin has a way of eating you up on the inside." Read the full story.
