Default Titan player attempts suicide

It is sad that someone should feel so depressed or desperate that they resort to taking their own life.

Hope O.J. recovers, and turns things around both mentally and emotionally.

Dont want to derail the suicide thread but what was the actual circumstance related to alm? Heard he was gay based on his death but never more. Was younger when that happened and never really heard.

Quote:
According to witness, Alm and his best friend, Sean P. Lynch, had dinner at a Houston-area steakhouse on December 13, 1993. At 2:45 a.m. Central Standard Time the following day, Almís Cadillac lost control heading south on Intrastate 610 southbound at the 59 north exit ramp and Lynch was thrown out of the car through the passenger window to his death. Alm had been speeding and lost control of his 1993 Cadillac Eldorado on a curved exit ramp. After the crash Alm ran across the ramp and looked down an embankment towards the Southwest Freeway, discovering that his boyhood friend had been thrown to his death 30 feet below. Apparently distraught by his best friendís death, Alm took out a pistol grip shotgun, fired two shots into the air and then shot himself in the head.[1]

R.I.P. OJ Murdock. At these times I always wonder just what it was that brought a person to that point.

Condolences to his family and loved ones.

He sent a text to his old coach. I wish he would have reached out to a few more people. So sad!

http://www.star-telegram.com/2012/07...er-texted.html

Quote:
Hours after sending a gracious yet puzzling middle-of-the-night text message to a former college coach, police said Tennessee Titans receiver O.J. Murdock died in an apparent suicide.

A Tampa, Fla., police spokeswoman said officers found Murdock about 8:30 a.m. inside his car with what appeared to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds. The car was parked in front of Middleton High School, where Murdock made a name for himself as a dynamic receiver and state champion sprinter in track and field.

Al McCray, assistant head coach/receivers at Fort Hays State, said when he woke up at his Kansas home on Monday he found a message on his cellphone from the player thanking him for everything he had done for Murdock and his family. The athlete concluded the text with an apology that baffled McCray, who said he had known the 25-year-old since Murdock was in middle school.

"I spoke to him a week ago, and he was so excited about getting ready to go [to training camp]. He was real happy about being able to help his mother out," McCray recalled.

"The hardest part about this is I got a text at 3:30 in the morning, where he said: 'Coach, I want to thank you for everything you've done for me and my family. It's greatly appreciated.' At the end, he goes: 'I apologize.' And I don't know what he's talking about. I woke up, and I'm thinking he's apologizing because he texted me so early. ... I wish he had called instead."
