Frank Alexander, the former bodyguard of Tupac Shakur who was there in Las Vegas when the rapper was slain in 1996 was found dead in California according to reports.

Details are sketchy at this time but it has been reported that Alexander died from a self inflicted gunshot wound, though those claims have yet to have been made official.

Alexander was noted for being one of the individuals who thought Suge Knight had something to do with the death of the rap star, citing his protection of the two following the Mike Tyson/Bruce Seldon fight in 1996 was out of the norm.

He created a documentary titled “Tupac Assassination” in 2007.
