Notorious B.I.G. Autopsy Report: Released in Graphic Detail

The Notorious B.I.G. (real name Christopher Wallace) sustained four gunshot wounds the night he was murdered in L.A. back in 1997, according to a just-released autopsy report.

Wallace, who was listed at 6'1" and 395 lbs., was struck a total of four times in a drive-by shooting by a still-unknown assailant on Los Angeles' Wilshire Blvd.

He was only 24.

As he sat in the passenger seat of a Chevy Suburban, Biggie was ambushed by bullets from the car alongside him. The first three, it turns out, were not fatal:

  1. Struck Wallace in the left forearm and traveled down to his wrist.
  2. Struck Wallace in the back, missed all vital organs, and exited through his left shoulder.
  3. Struck Wallace on his outer left thigh and exited through his inner left thigh.

After the third bullet exited the thigh, the autopsy report states that "the projectile strikes the left side of the scrotum, causing a very shallow, 3/8 inch linear laceration."

The fatal bullet was the fourth and final gunshot.

That entered Wallace's body through his right hip and tore its way through several of his vital organs before finally coming to rest in his left shoulder area.

The bullet perforated Wallace's colon, liver, heart and left lung.

Immediately after the shooting, the Notorious B.I.G. was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where doctors performed an emergency thoracotomy to no avail.

Wallace was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

All four gunshots traveled through the Suburban passenger door before striking Wallace; two were found on the gurney that transported him to the hospital.

Another bullet was discovered at the hospital when the body of the deceased rapper was turned over after doctors had tried and failed to save him.

The coroner listed Wallace as "morbidly obese."

A toxicology test revealed Wallace had no traces of drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death; Wallace's body was later ID'd by his mother and wife.

The autopsy report also lists one interesting, handwritten note under the section "Other Pertinent Information", reading: "Decedent may be rap singer."

Now he has died... Those people pushing him has side tracked. No positive advice was given them. Gangsterism is not an option. 2Pac and Biggie supposed to be cruising life to the fullest now. Everything that has happened here has been written above before it, things happened for the living to learn from. RIP

I know how he died is not up for debate, but how in the world does a bullet travel through a car door, into his thigh and up to his vital organs??? Was the shooter under the vehicle??? And how did he get shot in the back if the car was on the side of them??

It really depends on the position of the body when it is struck by the bullet. Mr. Wallace may have been leaning over across the seat when he was struck. Either way it's was a sad day.

I don't understand how the first three bullets struck from the left. Then the final fatal shot, struck the right hip and ended up in the left shoulder. Anyone have any ideas on how that's possible? Peace1

Apparently he was moving around and attempting to not continue to get shot.

He was leaning to the left when the fourth bullet hit

Any bullet traveling at high speed as they do, deform or disintegrate as they hit objects of various densities. As bullets travel through fat tissue, bone, muscle, it instanly bounces around in a path determined by the material it goes through. Basic physics.

You have a knack for stating the obvious and none of what you said explained how one bullet hit the right hip.

@ Luca Salvati Styles

I was thinking the same thing while reading this. This is suggestion (without saying it of course) that there were two shooters.

It is sad that he had to die like that

i never understood why people loved this guy's music so much, everytime he spoke all i could hear was heavy breathing and fat blocking his airways, the dude was disgusting and not that good at rapping, his voice was extremely annoying

@ shitstain

I am one of his fan and I never notice that he had heavy breething. He had to be a good rapper to had millions of album sold in life & after death. He was fat but if you look past that you will see talent and you will see that NOTORIOUS B.I.G. was truly gifted. Biggie had a good rapping tone

@ shitstain
