Drugs, robbery and murder in Staten Island

According to documents that were recently released, the Wu-Tang Clan was under investigation by the FBI for allegedly ordering the murder of two men in 1999. The files claim that members of Wu-Tang order the murder of two men for robbing the families of Raekwon and RZA. 

Recently, Anthony and Harvey Christian, two brothers and drug kingpins from Staten Island, are in the midst of a federal trial. The allegations against Wu-Tang members have come to light due to Anthony Christian being found guilt of conducting the murder of Jerome “Boo Boo” Estella. After the files from that murder trial had been released, along with files from the murder of another man, Corey “Shank Bank” Booker, it has been brought to light that the FBI had issued an investigation into whether or not Wu-Tang members had anything to do with the murders. 

"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," Anthony Christian's lawyer Michael 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."

The FBI files go into detail regarding the account of a Blood gang member named Brian Humphreys who was turned into a federal informant. He was the gunman in the Estrella killing that testified against the Christian brothers.

"A couple of weeks before the Boo Boo [Estella]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," the filing reads. "He stated that Boo Boo had robbed RZA's little brother and had also gotten into something with the Christian brothers."

The report goes on to state, "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 report goes on to claim that RZA issued a $30,000 contract to murder Brooker. The Christian brothers were arrested in 2011 with Anthony facing a life sentence and Harvey facing 40 years to life in prison.
