NFL Great Junior Seau Dead In Apparent Suicide
Sad news today about an NFL great. Junior Seau is dead at 43 from an apparent suicide. From TMZ:
NFL legend Junior Seau was found dead in his home in Oceanside, CA … and a law enforcement source at the scene tells us cops believe he shot himself.
Seau was 43-years-old … and leaves behind 3 kids and an ex-wife.
Cops are currently at Seau’s home — located in San Diego County — and were seen talking with a man who was inside the house and appeared distraught.
Seau was the #5 overall pick in 1990 NFL Draft. He also played for the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots during his 20 seasons in the NFL, over which he was a 12-time pro-bowler, 10-time All-Pro, and played on 2 AFC Championship teams. He will be a lock for the NFL Hall of Fame.
Sadly, this was likely not his first suicide attempt. Back in 2010, police said he drove his vehicle off a cliff after a fight with his girlfriend that led to his arrest on domestic violence charges.
My thoughts are with the family and friends of Junior Seau.
