TMZ is reporting that Junior Seau was found dead inside of his home. Police are at the scene and are investigating. It appears to be a suicide.
Here are the details.
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.
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.
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.
RIP Junior and thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
