Theballerlife.com is very sad to report that former NFL star linebacker Junior Seau was found dead in his California home in an apparent suicide.
Here are the details below:
NFL legend Junior Seau was found dead at his Oceanside, CA home this morning from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest — law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Oceanside Police Chief Frank McCoy just spoke outside Seau’s San Diego house, claiming Seau’s body was initially discovered by Seau’s girlfriend.
A 911 call was placed around 10AM this morning — authorities responded to the scene, and found Seau’s unconscious body inside a bedroom with a gunshot wound to the chest.
Paramedics attempted to revive Seau, but life-saving efforts were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead on the scene. His body has just been removed from the house and is currently being transported to the Medical Examiner’s office in a white van.
Junior Seau’s girlfriend, Megan Noderer (Below), called 911 shortly after discovering his body on Wednesday morning.
“I pray to God, ‘Take me; take me; leave my son,’ but it’s too late,” She said she didn’t know who to blame or what she would do without her son.
Seau is survived by his 4 children and ex-wife Gina Deboer. Seau married Gina Deboer in 1991; they divorced in 2002.
TMZ reports that Seau sent text messages to his ex-wife and kids yesterday saying, “Love you.” They all responded, but didn’t suspect anything was wrong. We’re told he last saw his kids 3 weeks ago.
