MIAMI -- The family of slain Miami Hurricanes player Bryan
Pata will get $2 million from the insurance companies of the
apartment complex where he was murdered, family attorneys said
Pata was fatally shot outside The Colony Apartment in Kendall on
Nov. 7. The apartment complex did not provide the 24-hour security
it had advertised, and several outdoor lights were obscured or not
working, particularly where the shooting took place, said the
"It was basically pitch black where it happened," attorney
Douglas McCarron said.
Pata's parents will receive two $1 million payouts, the full
policy limit from both of the complex's insurance companies.
Relatives said Pata had promised to help financially support his
family once he signed an NFL contract.
