Former Major League pitcher, Brad Halsey was killed when he either fell or jumped from a 100-foot cliff in New Braunfels, Texas last Friday Judge Jennifer Saunders told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday. Judge Saunders was the official to order Halsey’s autopsy being that his death occurred under mysterious circumstances. He was 33 years old.
“It appeared that he had climbed up about a 100-foot cliff on a private property and was discovered in a little road going up into that property,” Saunders said. “He had either jumped or fallen.”
Halsey died from multiple blunt force injuries. When asked if Halsey may have been trying to hurt himself, Judge Saunders remained tight-lipped on the matter; only saying that the investigation is “ongoing”.
Hasley last pitched in the majors for the Oakland A’s in 2006, after being drafted by the New York Yankees and coming up through their developmental system. Before joining the A’s Hasley was a part of the Yankee’s trade package to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for ace Randy Johnson in 2005.
