BREAKING: Junior Seau Commits Suicide?

By the Left Coast Rebel

A San Diego sports legend and decades-spanning city icon has passed away, apparently from suicide.

San Diego's Union Tribune reports:

— Former Chargers linebacker Junior Seau, an icon not only in his hometown of Oceanside but as a star in the NFL, has died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at his beachfront home in Oceanside Wednesday.

A 911 call reporting a possible suicide was made to police at 10 a.m., a dispatcher said.
A crowd including several police officers and neighbors has gathered outside Seau’s two-story home on the south end of The Strand.
Chargers chaplain Shawn Mitchell said he was notified of the death and is on his way to be with family members.

Very sad. As we reported here in 2010, Junior Seau launched his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, CA. The crash at the time was rumored to be a suicide attempt.

For one reason or another Junior Seau was a very troubled person.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family today.

  1. Its very sad, having access to a gun when you are having emotional troubles is a disaster waiting to happen. Seems like just few weeks ago a emotionally trouble man killed 7 people at a school in Oakland. I don't understand the need for guns.
