Default *Update: Wu-Tang cleared by Feds* FBI probed Wu-Tang link to 2 Staten Island murders

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. Newly-released documents from the federal trial of two Staten Island drug kingpins show the FBI was looking into whether the Wu-Tang Clan ordered the murders of two drug dealers in 1999.

The victims, those documents revealed, may have been marked for death in part because they robbed the family members of two of the famed Staten Island rap collective's founding members, RZA and Raekwon.

Now, the lawyer of one of those drug kingpins is asking for more police reports about the rap group's alleged involvement, as his client's sentencing looms.

A federal jury last October found brothers Anthony and Harvey Christian guilty of running a 20-year drug-dealing dynasty in the Park Hill Apartments in Clifton, and of orchestrating the June 19, 1999 murder of 17-year-old Jerome (Boo Boo) Estella.

Anthony Christian's lawyer, Michael Gold, is now contending that an FBI file alleges Estella was slain "at the instruction of members of the Wu-Tang Clan, a rap group, as revenge for robberies," and is asking for "all police files" pertaining to his murder, and the killing of a second man, Corey (Shank Bank) Brooker.

"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 Advance Monday. "What I'm trying to ascertain is their stated belief in an official file that Wu-Tang ordered this homicide."

Gold was referring to Wu-Tang founding member Ol' Dirty Bastard's 95-page FBI file. A heavily-redacted version of that file became public in 2012, following a Freedom of Information Act request.

Prosecutors contend, though, that Gold had access to all of the information referred to in that file prior to the trial, and that even so, none of it provided any evidence that may exonerate his client.

In a filing last month, federal prosecutors described what they had sent Gold through the trial's discovery process, based on interviews from 1999 with Brian Humphreys, a Bloods member who later turned federal informant.

Humphreys was the trigger-man in Estella's killing, and testified against the Christian brothers.

"A couple of weeks before the Boo Boo shooting, Uncles (the street name of drug supplier-turned-informant Paul Ford) told Humphreys about a Blood named Boo Boo who just came home from jail. He stated that Boo Boo had robbed RZA's little brother and had also gotten into something with the Christian brothers," the filing reads.

RZA, or Robert Fitzergald Diggs, is one of Wu-Tang's founding members.

"Uncles was talking about Boo Boo and said that he had just come home and robbed RZA's brother and that they would likely come after him for that. Humphreys believes Uncles was referring to members of Wu Tang," the prosecutors' filings read.

The documents also refer to conversations between Ford, Humphreys and Anthony Christian about Brooker, who was shot to death on June 22, 1999.

In those conversations, Ford said that Brooker robbed both RZA's brother and the cousin of another Wu-Tang member, Raekwon (real name Corey Woods), leading to RZA issuing a $30,000 contract to kill Brooker.

"Ford stated that he had previously heard that Shank Bank was killed by Phife (ph). Ford believes that Phife collected money from RZA for executing the hit," the filings read. It's not clear who "Phife" refers to.

Federal prosecutors filed the documents to establish that they had, in fact, revealed the Wu-Tang Clan's potential ties to Estella's murder to defense attorneys before the trial began.

Gold challenges that contention, stating that he received thousands of pages from the government with "a few remote references to Wu-Tang, but nothing that went as far as the released FBI files."

Prosecutors maintain that Anthony Christian ordered Estrella's murder, and the question of whether Estella robbed RZA's brother only reinforces Christian's motive for wanting him dead.

Christian and the Wu-Tang Clan members were contemporaries, and the robberies mentioned were bad for the drug trade, prosecutors contend.

At the trial, prosecutors contended that Christian and Ford sent their enforcer, Humphreys, to kill Brooker, who was a rival drug dealer, prosecutors said. Brooker initially escaped death, but Humphreys killed Estella, with Anthony Christian's blessing, so he wouldn't warn Brooker about the murder plot.

Humphreys was arrested the day of Estella's murder, but Brooker's respite didn't last. He was shot dead three days later, on June 22, 1999.

His murder remains unsolved.

Wu-Tang Clan representatives did not return an e-mail seeking comment Tuesday.

FORD, ANTHONY CHRISTIAN, and TREVOR (known to this investigation as BRIAN HUMPHRIES) were present for a meeting in front of 141 Park Hill. At this meeting, FORD learned from CHRISTIAN that RAEKWON’S cousin, RICO, had been robbed by SHANK BANK. FORD, CHRISTIAN, and HUMPHRIES were also present for at a second meeting at 55 Bowen Street, Staten Island, where FORD advised CHRISTIAN and HUMPHRIES that there was a $30,000.00 contract out on “SHANK BANK” for robbing NINE PRINCE, the brother of RZA. FORD advised that he heard from [OLLIE] GRANT that RZA had issued the contract and wanted SHANK BANK killed. FORD opined that the contract was one of the reasons that HUMPHRIES wanted to go after SHANK BANK.
