Eric Holder, the man charged with killing rapper Nipsey Hussle, may have just lost another loved one.

According to multiple social media reports - Eric's father was reportedly killed. Eric's father is not believed to have had anything to do with the rapper's killing and it's not clear whether the father's alleged killing was in retaliation for Nipsey's murder.

But if the reports are accurate, this would be the fourth family member of Eric's that has died since his alleged killing of the beloved rapper.

One day after Nipsey's killing, two men believed to be cousins of Eric Holder, were shot and killed in South Central. Neither of those men were suspected of having anything to do with Nipsey's murder either.

And about a month after Nipsey's death, a man believed to be one of Eric's half-brother's was found mysteriously dead inside his home. Police called that death a suicide. Like the other 3 killed, Eric's brother is not suspected to be involved in Nipsey's killing.

Back in September, it was reported that Holder, the man accused of murdering rapper, Nipsey Hussle, was reportedly found "near dead" inside his jail cell, according to online sources.

Police believe that Eric, who is facing life in prison, may have attempted suicide. Prosecutors charged Holder with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

If convicted, Holder would face a maximum sentence of life in prison. He pleaded not guilty to the charges at his arraignment. According to video evidence cited by the police, Mr. Holder walked up to Nipsey Hussle and the two men who were with him several times before leaving and returning with a handgun. He fired several times before fleeing in a white Chevy Cruze that was driven by an unidentified woman.
