NFL Star Dwayne Haskins Was Allegedly Drugged, Blackmailed & Robbed Before His Death
NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins was drugged, blackmailed, and robbed prior to his death, according to a lawsuit filed by his family.
According to the lawsuit recently filed by Haskins’ wife – Kalabrya Haskins – and the late NFL star’s parents, four of the 14 defendants allegedly connected to the 24-year-old’s death last year are accused of drugging Dwayne Haskins,
“to blackmail and rob him causing him and/or contributing to cause him severe injury and death.”
Haskins was killed on April 9, 2022, after he was struck by a dump truck while he was walking on a South Florida highway. The lawsuit argues that Oriel Patino – the defendant who was driving the dump truck that struck and killed Haskins – was “driving recklessly,” exceeded the speed limit, and “failed to maintain” the brakes and tires on the vehicle. It’s important to note the lawsuit does not claim that Patino was involved in drugging, blackmailing, or robbing Haskins.
A toxicology report concluded Dwayne Haskins was legally drunk when he was hit by the truck. Two blood alcohol content (BAC) samples found that the professional football player had a BAC between .20 and .24 at the time of his death – nearly triple Florida’s legal BAC limit of .08. The medical examiner also found that Haskins tested positive for ketamine and norketamine.
Rick Ellsley, the attorney representing the Haskins family, said in a statement:
“As to what occurred in the hours before Dwayne was killed, many questions remain unanswered. It is believed that Dwayne was targeted and drugged as part of a blackmail and robbery conspiracy. In fact, his highly-expensive watch was stolen from him shortly before his death.”
In the 911 audio from the accident, Kalabrya Haskins told the dispatcher that her husband called her early the morning of the incident and said he was going to get out of his rental car to get gas and would call her back when he returned. She called 911 after she didn’t hear back from him and requested that authorities check on the athlete.
The lawsuit alleges the driver of the dump truck was speeding, driving carelessly, and had a cargo load exceeding the legal weight limit. The suit also claims the operator of the dump truck,
“failed to avoid hitting the Plaintiff who was visible and avoidable had the Defendant operated his dump truck with reasonable care.”
Attorney Ellsley said in a statement:
“Many questions remain as to why the truck driver did not avoid hitting Dwayne given the highly visible activity in the area before the impact and the fact that the other drivers did not hit Dwayne.”
“The truck driver’s cell phone records have not yet been disclosed. The report also notes that the driver refused to provide a blood sample to the police at the scene and still has not provided the alcohol test results.”
