Will late suspect's family file a lawsuit?

Regarding the WinCo shoplifting suspect ("WinCo shoplifting suspect critical," Aug. 4, Page B-1 and "Shoplifting suspect dies," Aug. 6, Page B-3): I have to wonder if anyone else had the same thought I did: "How long before his family attempts to sue someone?"

If you do the crime, you do the time. If you decided to run, then struggle with authorities, whatever happens from that point — including death! — is nobody's fault but your own. Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions, but it seems society today wants to blame everyone else for their problems.
