Members of the Wu-Tang Clan were investigated for allegedly ordering two men’s murders in 1999, according to recently released documents.

The allegations come from a federal trial of two Staten Island drug kingpins, brothers Anthony and Harvey Christian, stating that two men may have been murdered because they robbed Wu-Tang founding members RZA and Raekwon’s family members. Last October, the Christian brothers were found guilty of running a major drug-dealing operation for 20 years and Anthony Christian was also found guilty of orchestrating a 1999.

With sentencing against the drug lords on its way, Anthony Christian’s lawyer Michael Gold has requested “all police files” about the Wu-Tang Clan’s alleged involvement in the murder of 17-year-old Jerome (Boo Boo) Estella, as well as those of a second man named Corey (Shank Bank) Brooker. He contends that information in Wu-Tang Clan member Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s FBI file alleges the murder was pulled off “at the instruction of members of the Wu-Tang Clan.” Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s FBI file was released in a heavily-redacted form in 2012.

“These reports seem to suggest someone else was liable for those murders. I’m not suggesting that Wu-Tang committed these crimes. The FBI did,” Gold told the Staten Island Advance. “What I’m trying to ascertain is their stated belief in an official file that Wu-Tang ordered this homicide.”

In response, the federal prosecutors issued a filing last month describing what information they had sent in the trial’s discovery process, noting RZA and Raekwon’s possible role in the killings. They stated Gold already had all reverent information prior to the trial and that none of it provided evidence that might exonerate his client.
