Ray Lewis III passed away at the age of 28

Ray Lewis III, the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer and Baltimore Ravens great Ray Lewis, has died. He had turned 28.

Lewis’s younger brother, Rahsaan Lewis, wrote an Instagram story on Thursday about his death.

Details about what happened when he died were not yet known.

Ray III was one of Lewis’ six children from separate relationships (the two-time Super Bowl winner has never married). He has three brothers, Rayshad, Rahsaan, and Ralin, as well as two sisters, Diaymon Desiree, nicknamed Dyme (who spoke during his Hall of Fame induction), and Kaitlin.

Ray III, Rahsaan, and Rayshad all played football, much like their father. As a Lake Mary High School in Florida senior, Ray III ran for 1,898 yards and 20 touchdowns and scored four touchdowns on 676 receiving yards. He subsequently went on to play in college for Miami (FL), Coastal Carolina, and Virginia Union before finishing his career in an arena league.

Rahsaan, a wide receiver, had one-year spells at Central Florida and Florida Atlantic before entering Kentucky, where he recorded eight receptions, including a touchdown against the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

He transferred to Georgia Southern this year.

Ray III and Rahsaan have both run afoul of the law, much like Ray Lewis, who was famously accused of murder shortly after Super Bowl XXXIV. In 2016, a South Carolina grand jury charged Ray Lewis III with third-degree criminal sexual behavior.

Back then, he was said to have sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman while he knew she was drunk or high.

On January 23, 2016, police were called to a report of a sexual attack, and a rape kit was done. On August 11, 2016, he was charged with the crime. WPDE.com used a police report to say that the case was looked at, and in the end, police were told to get a warrant to arrest Ray Lewis III.

At the time, he was freed on a $10,000 loan.

His colleagues at the time, Coastal Carolina, grounded him, but after a long investigation by South Carolina police, the charges were dropped, and he was cleared.

 Rahsaan was busted for DUI earlier this year.

Rayshad had a good rookie season as a wide receiver at Utah before transferring to Maryland and becoming a defensive back, earning 17 tackles (12 solo) and returning seven kickoffs for 146 yards. He finally returned to wide receiver, although he only had three grabs for 13 yards. He transferred to Kentucky for his final season but did not play.
