The family of two victims, who were killed during Super Bowl weekend in Atlanta back in 2000, haven't forgiven Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis for what happen to them.Lewis, along with Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting, were charged with murder of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar. However, Lewis was eventually charged with obstruction of Justice, a Misdemeanor after he agreed to testify against Oakley and Sweeting. Lewis never snitched on either person nor did he link them to the murders. A few weeks later both men were acquitted.Thirteen years later, the family of the two victims claim that most family members don't like Ray Lewis and don't see them forgiving Lewis anytime soon.Priscilla Lollar told USA Today, "If I truly accept that he's not coming back." "I don't discuss him in the past. I don't really acknowledge anything."Baker's uncle, Greg Wilson added his feelings, "My nephew was brutally beaten and murdered and nobody is paying for it. Everything is so fresh in our mind, it's just like it happen yesterday. We'll never forget this.""Everytime I see him (Lewis), I think of my nephew," Lollar-Owens said "I've seen where he was speaking about family and stuff, and I quite sure that every time he see his son, he thinks about the son, grandson and father we lost. It would be impossible not to. Never a day goes by that we don't think about him," Lollar-Owens went on to say."I'll be very upset if they induct (Lewis) into the Hall of Fame. There's other people out there that committed a lesser crime and they're sitting in jail," Greg Wilson said.Baker, his nephew, "was raised in our home." "We have no compassion for Ray Lewis, for Art Modell, for any of them. We don't want to see them," Wilson said.
