News Of The Alleged Passing Of Eric’s Father Comes Two Months After The Man Accused Of Killing ‘The Life’ Rapper Was Found ‘Near Dead’ Inside His Jail Cell.
Misery appears to have surrounded the family of Nipsey Hussle‘s alleged shooter Eric Holder. The incarcerated man, who is charged with killing the rapper, is possibly mourning the loss of his father, who was reportedly killed.
No details surrounding the death of Eric’s father are available as of press time, and it’s not clear if the father’s alleged killing was in retaliation for Nipsey’s murder. Should the news be true, Eric’s father would be the fourth of his family members who died since he allegedly shot and killed the “Feelin’ Myself” hitmaker.
One day after Nipsey’s death, two men believed to be Eric’s cousins were shot and killed in South Central. Later in April, a month after Eric’s alleged killing of Nipsey, his half-brother reportedly died of suicide. The 17-year-old teen shares a father with Eric, but is of different mother. Neither of the four members of Eric’s family is believed to have anything to do with Nipsey’s killing.
Eric was arrested on April 2, two days after he was caught on surveillance camera shooting Nipsey multiple times in front of his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles. He has been charged with one count of murder, two of attempted murder, and one of possession of a firearm by a felon.
In September, it was reported that he was found “near dead” inside his jail cell. It was believed that he attempted suicide while awaiting the decision in his trial for Nipsey’s murder. A screenshot of Eric’s inmate record which has circulated online shows that he was taken to “USCM” (University Southern California Medical Center), or Los Angeles County Hospital, on September 19. Inmates are only moved to the medical facility in the event of a serious medical emergency. Prior to being rushed to the hospital, Eric was reportedly kept in solitary confinement.
