The bodyguard of the murdered rapper Tupac Shakur has passed away.  According to, Frank Alexander was found dead Tuesday in California.  Details about his death are scarce, but internet rumors suggest Alexander may have died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

A former bodybuilder and U.S. Marine, Alexander was part of Tupac's security detail the night of his murder in September 1996.  He was riding in a separate vehicle when Pac was shot. 

Alexander remained skeptical about Tupac's murder and was featured in documentaries and articles that explored the events surrounding the rapper's untimely death.
