Junior Seau, former NFL star and Pro Baller, was found at his Oceanside, CA home this morning by his girlfriend with a gun shot wound in the chest.
Sadly, according to TMZ, it was an apparent suicide. The father of three was just 43 years old. Ironically, he was involved in a car accident in 2010 where he drove his SUV over a cliff after being accused of attacking his girlfriend and many thought it was an attempted suicide. He insisted that he actually fell asleep while driving.
This is one of many recent suicides by former NFL players that now have many questioning the long term effects of concussions and injuries on the field.
