Lou Thanasia is the late brother of Hugh Thanasia and the brother-in-law of Olive Specter. He died an early death, and, as with Olive's husbands (including her ex-fiancé Earl E. DeMise, who left Olive at the altar), it is suggested that perhaps, Olive murdered him. This theory has not been proved, yet it is a strong possibility. His name is a pun on "euthanasia."
Lou's grave was originally intended to be buried in the cemetery on Olive's lot in Strangetown, but is missing in the released game. Although it is not explicitly stated whether Lou or Hugh was the elder brother, the game files state that Lou was the younger of the two. Their NIDs indicate that Hugh was created first and Lou was 29 days from being an elder, while Hugh was 26 days from being an elder. He is the only victim of Olive Specter that is completely unplayable without the use of hacks such as SimPE. Lou's facial structure is almost, if not identical to the 27th face template in Create a Sim.
- A development image of the Specter graveyard shows the graves of Lou and Knut Futa on the lot, but they are missing in the released game.
