Last year, Anthony and Harvey Christian, Staten Island drug kingpins, were found guilty of running a 20-year-long drug operation. Anthony was simultaneously found guilty of the murder of Jerome "Boo Boo" Estella in 1999. The Christian brothers' lawyer, Michael Gold, requested that all files related to the murder be released - as well as those related to the murder of another man, Corey "Shank Bank" Brooker, that same year.

And what do those files reveal? They reveal that the FBI were investigating Wu-Tang Clan in relation to those two 1999 murders, Billboard reports. In addition, information in the late Ol' Dirty Bastard's FBI file - released in 2012 - alleges that the murders took place "at the instruction of members of the Wu-Tang Clan."

The lawyer, Gold, said:

"These reports seem to suggest someone else was liable for those murders. I’m not suggesting that Wu-Tang committed these crimes. [...] What I’m trying to ascertain is [the FBI's] stated belief in an official file that Wu-Tang ordered this homicide."

More information surfaced last month via a filing issued by federal prosecutors, which included information based on interviews with Brian Humphreys in 1999. Humphreys, a Bloods gang member-turned-informant, was the man who actually shot Estella, and testified against the Christian brothers.

The aforementioned filing reads:

"A couple of weeks before the Boo Boo [Estella] shooting, Uncles (the street name of drug supplier-turned-informant Paul Ford) told Humphreys about a Blood named Boo Boo who just came home from jail. He stated that Boo Boo had robbed RZA’s little brother and had also gotten into something with the Christian brothers.

"Uncles was talking about Boo Boo and said that he had just come home and robbed RZA’s brother and that they would likely come after him for that. Humphreys believes Uncles was referring to members of Wu Tang."

Later, the filing states that Ford accused RZA of issuing a $30,000 contract for the murder of Corey Brooker.
