Alleged Murderer Of Notorious B.I.G. Escapes From Prison
Clayton Armstrong Hill, a former member of the Nation of Islam, somehow managed to successfully escape out of the medium security prison where he was detained. Hill was incarcerated for pleading guilty to over 100 fraudulent federal income tax returns in the mid-2000’s, and then made a shocking confession in July 2011. Hill came forward to confess to his role as an accessory after the fact in the murder of Notorious B.I.G. He made the confession in his memoir “Diary of an Ex-Terrorist,” and also elaborated on the confession during an interview with HipHopDX.
According to his confession to DX, Hill allegedly took the gun away from the shooter, and the Nation of Islam was heavily involved in covering up Biggie’s murder.
“[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.]. He disclosed that he was the shooter of The Notorious B.I.G. because he (Dawoud) was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so.”
It was discovered that he had escaped after a bed count was conducted and Hill was missing from his cell.
“I was notified by officials … that inmate Clayton Armstrong Hill walked off the grounds. A bed count was conducted to verify Hill’s status, and at approximately 6:40 p.m. Hill was identified as missing,” said Deputy U.S. Marshal Clay M. Cleveland noted in an affidavit, as reported by Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Hill apparently made his escape last week.
