Photo Surfaces of Nipsey Hussle’s Alleged Killer, Eric Holder Beaten Up By Fellow Inmates

A photo is circulating of Eric Holder‘s swollen face as he returns to court after being jumped in jail.

As we reported earlier this week, the accused killer of Nipsey Hussle was seen in a photo shared by Rolling Stone reporter Nancy Dillon after being attacked by other inmates in jail.


His face appeared swollen and bruised on the left side, while his left eye was fully swollen to the point where his left eye is squinted. Holder‘s lawyer, Aaron Jansen, described the attack as an “in-custody beating.” Jansen also revealed to CBS News that he was attacked by “multiple individuals,” at least one having a razor.

“Mr. Holder, Jr. was assaulted by multiple individuals while he was in the holding cell at the jail while waiting to be brought to court yesterday morning. The attack included a razor and the back of his head was cut.” 

He received an MRI and staples in the back of his head when hospitalized shortly after the attack, delaying the court proceedings a day.

Tanisha Foster, the mother of Hussle’s daughter Emani, posted the photo of Holder beaten up and captioned it with:

“I’m turning up when he takes his last breath.”

Holder is accused of murdering Nipsey Hussle, outside of his clothing store, The Marathon, on March 31, 2019. The award-winning rapper and father of two, who was born Ermias Asghedom, was 33 at the time of his death.

If Holder is convicted, he faces life in prison.
