RUN DMC star DARYL McDANIELS has launched his own "Columbo research" in a bid to bring the killer of his friend Jam Master Jay to justice.

His Run DMC partner was shot dead in New York on 30 October 2002, and police are still looking for clues as to who was responsible.

But McDaniels is convinced the murder mystery can be easily solved - and he's going to prove it.

He says, "Why didn't Jay get shot up? If I'm here with you and a muthaf***er come in with a gun, I don't care what you did, we gonna get shot up.

"He got shot once in the neck, then the suspects left. Whoever f***in' shot Jay knew him, 'cause he was sitting."
