According to TMZ, because of coronavirus, it's been even more difficult for detectives on Pop Smoke's case to find leads. The coronavirus pandemic has led LAPD to prioritize their resources. Though detectives have been able to investigate the case, the amount of time and resources available for police to find Pop Smoke's killer has created problems for them to solve the case.

Detectives have still tried to talk to people and find evidence for the case but even that's been an issue since day one. Police have previously stated that they had trouble finding reliable witnesses. Some either refused to speak to police while others are said to have provided bad information.

With Pop Smoke's posthumous album due out in June, detectives and investigators are hoping that this might lead people to speak out and help them find new leads on their case.
