On this Father's Day weekend our prayers go out to the greatest Oakland Raider receiver of all time, Fred Biletnikoff. His daughter, Tracey, was murdered over 13 years ago and the killer has finally been brought to justice. Mohammed Haroon Ali, whose original conviction in 2001 was overturned, has now been sentenced to 55 years in prison after being convicted of the first degree murder of his then girlfriend Tracey Biletnikoff.
At the sentencing the San Mateo County Times reports the raiders hall of famer called Ali an "animal" and said his hatred for Ali would never go away. Ali strangled the 20 year old Tracey Biletnikoff at a drug and alcohol treatment facility back in1999 during an argument over whether or not he had relapsed. Ali testified that he had removed her pants to make it look like a sex crime , but insisted her death was an accident.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Fred Biletnikoff and the Biletnikoff family.
