The teenage brother of the man arrested for murdering Nipsey Hussle, Eric Holder, committed suicide yesterday, according to multiple reports.

Police arrested Eric Holder last week, and charged him with the murder of legendary hip hop artist/activist Nipsey Hussle. Police released video showing a man they claim is Holder, committing the violent murder.

Since Nipsey's killing, associates of the hip hop legend have taken revenge against Eric's family. Less than 48 hours after Nipsey's assassination - the streets killed TWO of Eric's cousins.

Now Eric's 17 year old brother is gone also. Multiple credible social media accounts are saying that Eric's brother is dead, and is believed to have committed suicide yesterday.

The teenage boy, who shares a father with Eric, didn't have anything at all to do with Nipsey's killing. It's not clear why the teenager would take his own life.

Nipsey Hussle was laid to rest yesterday, in a grand funeral at the Los Angeles Staples Center. The funeral service was Livestreamed to over 40 million people around the world.

According to The Blast, Holder's lawyer Attorney Christopher Darden has been on the receiving end of numerous threats since he made the decision to represent the man suspected of killing Nipsey. Darden appeared in court on April 4 where he entered a not guilty plea for Eric Holder, who was arrested the day before.

According to Blast sources, since he took the job, Darden has received numerous threatening message on social media. The people writing the messages are pissed off he is representing the man suspected of killing Nipsey Hussle.
