How Corona Virus is hindering the murder case of American rapper, Pop Smoke.

The murder case of American rapper and songwriter, Bashar Barakah Jackson, known professionally as Pop Smoke has remained a mountain task as the coronavirus pandemic is hindering the job of the detectives assigned to the murder case.

Information at our reach indicates the COVID-19 and related issues has been LAPD's top priority in the past 2 months, resulting in no or less resources available to focus on the rapper's killer.
When detectives are able to investigate, we're told they still try to go out and safely speak face-to-face with people in an attempt to gather evidence ... but that's been a challenge already in this case.

As we first told you - cops were running into witness issues in the case, as people were either refusing to talk about Pop's death or providing unreliable info. On a more positive note, investigators are hoping the rapper's upcoming posthumous debut album will renew interest in the case, get people talking, and drum up tips and new leads, writes TMZ.
TMZ broke the story ... Pop Smoke was gunned down in February at a house owned by 'RHOBH' star Teddi Mellencamp. It appears the murder was a targeted hit and not an armed robbery gone awry, but law enforcement's still puzzled over the motive.
