Following the devastating death of former Ohio State football player Dwayne Haskins, a startling new development has surfaced.

A startling new development has emerged in the wake of the tragic death of former Ohio State star quarterback Dwayne Haskins, which stunned the college football community a year ago.

Attorney Rick Ellsley of The Ellsley Law Firm announced this week that Haskins is the target of a lawsuit based on “previously unseen evidence.”

Ellsley’s statement included the following excerpt: “Many questions remain as to what transpired in the hours before Dwayne was killed.”

“Dwayne was allegedly singled out and given drugs as a part of a plot involving robbery and blackmail. In actuality, he had his extremely costly watch stolen not long before he passed away.”

The statement in its entirety is available here.

Following Haskins’ unexpected death and the events that preceded it, many questions about what transpired arose, which authorities attempted to address.

Haskins was training with other Pittsburgh Steelers players on a highway in south Florida when he was struck and killed by a dump truck. According to the medical examiner’s report, Haskins had been drinking heavily and had “significant amounts of alcohol in his blood” before the incident.

Haskins died from blunt force trauma, according to the medical examiner, who declared the death to be accidental.

According to reports, Haskins was walking to get petrol for his car when he was struck by the truck at 6:37 a.m., and two 911 emergency calls disclosed this information.

Prior to being hit and killed, Haskins was attempting to wave down cars on the highway in order to get a ride, according to the medical examiner.
