Deborah Alexander is the widow to the late Frank Alexander, former bodyguard for rapper Tupac Shakur. Frank was seemingly torn between two worlds and Deborah bore witness to all of the torment, joy, frustration, pain, triumph, and chaos that Frank endured, all the way through the moment where he took his own life - in front of Deborah, in their home - with his own gun.
Deborah's story is full of tears and hope, confusion and inspiration. She shares her story with us in an effort to improve awareness related to mental illness, firearms, and suicide. Her book, The Private Life of Big Frank: Bodyguard to the Greatest of Gangster Rap is available for purchase on Amazon.
