Frank Alexander, Author, BodyGuard and TV Personality Passed Away
Apr 29, 2013
(Agoura Hills, CA)
Frank “Big Frank” Alexander passed away in his Murrieta CA home at approximately 4:45pm last night from a single gun shot.
Alexander was best known for his role as Tupac Shakur’s bodyguard and friend, who was present the night the rap star was shot. He went on to write the book “Got Your Back” and appeared in several TV shows and documentaries relating to the fatal shooting.
“I am getting this out there to head off rumors of the event. My best friend of 16 years passed away last night. I am waiting to hear on the details. When I do and it is the truth, I will let everyone know. Please respect his family and friends in this time of loss” said Richard Bond of Bonded Films, Alexander’s producing partner.
“Frank was one of the true believers that justice would come for his friend Tupac. We talked every day and I am at a complete loss as to how and exactly why this happened. Frank was a dear friend; we talked last Friday and he wanted to see his new grand-daughter born. This is a senseless and horrible occasion. And with his death, so might also go any hope of bringing Pac's killers to justice. Frank and Yak (Yafeu Fula) were the two closest witnesses to the shooting. I don’t get this.”
The circumstances surrounding his death have not been released and are still being investigated. He is survived by his daughter Vanessa and grandchildren (one is expected within the month.)
