When Jonathan Vilma was arrested in Miami, Florida thankfully, all it lead to was the prosecution dropping all charges. That was also an arrest that came after a traffic stop, nothing serious. Vilma and Saints fans can rest easy, right?

-

Well, think again. Now it seems like Vilma is involved -- albeit in a very roundabout way -- with a double murder that took place in his Long Island condo back in New York. Apparently, someone claiming to be Vilma's cousin had keys to his condo and entered it last Thursday night with four other men. A couple of minutes (and a couple of gunshots) later, three of men left. If you're counting at home, that's two murders inside of Vilma's house (the bodies were later discovered in Queens).

Jeez.

Apparently the murders were over some sort of drug deal or "black money" deal that went south. Not to be confused with a racial term, "black money" refers to scheme were people are sold money at a discount that has been shipped oversees and stained black to avoid detection. More often than not, the "black money" is worthless. Again, why this is all going down in Vilma's apartment -- where the murderers had the key, password and electronic gate opener -- is a mystery.

-

It should be made clear that Vilma has not been accussed of any wrongdoing -- the man hasn't even set foot in that condo in almost two years. But still, when someone who claims to be your cousin is walking into a condo that's under your name and killing people in it, well, something's got to change. At the very least, though, police will want to know who the mystery cousin is and why he has Vilma's keys.
