"Sheriff's Department Demands Apology After Fox's Tupac/Biggie Special Accuses Wrong Officer Of Mishandling Case"

There was one big problem with the special’s claims about Katz. The photo they used of Katz was actually that of Commander Stephen D. Katz of the L.A. County Sheriff’s department, not of Steven Katz of the Los Angeles Police Department (the real detective who'd handled the case). As stated in a later LASD statement, this mistake also erroneously suggests that the Sheriff’s department was involved in the investigation over Small’s death (in the special Katz was shown wearing a LASD badge, and standing in front of LASD logos), when in fact the case was being handled by the LAPD.
