Junior Seau is dead
Responsible journalists usually handle these types of stories with caution, as you don’t want to rush to print a story about someone being dead when they aren’t. But, OTR wants no part of responsible journalism, so we’ll pass along what TMZ is reporting.
According to TMZ, former San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots LB Junior Seau was found dead in his California home today, the result of gun shot wounds.
It wouldn’t be crazy to think it was a suicide. Remember, back in 2010 Seau drove his SUV off of a cliff and claimed he wasn’t trying to kill himself, but that he fell asleep at the wheel.
Seau was 43-years old and left behind an ex-wife and three children. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: From TMZ – 11:33 AM PDT — Law enforcement sources tell us … Seau died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.
