Default Junior Seau Dead - Suicide

Junior Seau Dead -- Cops Suspect Suicide | TMZ.com

Quote:
11:33 AM PDT -- Law enforcement sources tell us ... Seau died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Back in 2011, former NFL star Dave Duerson shot himself in the chest ... and explained in his suicide note that he wanted his brain donated to a research center because he believed the blows he took to the head during his football career caused him to become mentally impaired.

11:27 AM PDT -- We're told a 911 call came in around 10:00 AM. No word on who made the call.

11:26 AM PDT -- The North County Times is reporting Seau's body was discovered by his housekeeper.

11:23 AM PDT -- The coroner just arrived on scene.

11:20 AM PDT -- The San Diego Chargers have posted a tweet saying, "We donít have any information right now on the Junior Seau situation. We pray he's ok."

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.

We're told Seau sent text messages to his ex-wife and 3 kids yesterday saying, "Love you." We're told they all responded and didn't suspect anything was wrong. We're told he last saw his kids 3 weeks ago.

Sources close to Seau tell us family members didn't notice any signs of depression in recent weeks.

Seau was a beast in the NFL -- skyrocketing to fame thanks to his explosive play with the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. The USC standout was selected in the first round of the NFL draft in 1990 and played in the league for 20 years.


Seau was involved in a car accident back in 2010 when he drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, CA hours after he was arrested for allegedly attacking his girlfriend. Seau later said he was not trying to kill himself ... insisting he had fallen asleep at the wheel.

Just reading about this... I can't really condone suicide, but I can commend him for saving his brain for research. Duane Duerson did the same years ago, saying he wanted to help CTE research, which is based on repeated trauma, such as football hits over a career.

So sad, with all the people who you know love him, and will be crushed by this, and supported him. The lows of a post-pro sports career are crushing...

I Went to high school in Carlsbad Ca, Carlsbad is the next town south from o'side. Junior absolutely terrorized our team.

Sad only one year younger than I am.

Funny thing is that most of his family were Raider fans before he was drafted by the chargers.

That is sad. I just do not understand suicide. You have to think of the ones that you are leaving behind.

Don't be so quick to assume suicide. The story on Yahoo said they found him with a gunshot to the chest and a pistol in his hand.

I read on multiple sites there was a suicide note, explaining why he did it, and that he used a shotgun to the chest to preserve his brain for research...

It'll be a few days until we know the truth...
