Legendary NFL linebacker Junior Seau is dead at the age of 43. Cops in Oceanside, CA responded to a 911 call reporting a possible suicide at Junior’s beachfront home Wednesday.
NFL legend Junior Seau was found dead in his home in Oceanside, CA … and cops are investigating a shooting … multiple law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Cops are currently at Seau’s home just outside San Diego. Seau was 43-years-old … and leaves behind 3 kids and an ex-wife.
Seau was a beast in the NFL — skyrocketing to fame thanks to his explosive play with the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. The USC standout was selected in the first round of the NFL draft in 1990 and played in the league for 20 years.
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.
TMZ also reports Seau sent text messages to his ex-wife and 3 kids yesterday saying, “Love you.” but they all responded and didn’t suspect anything was wrong. They also report he last saw his kids 3 weeks ago.
The coroner arrived on scene around 11:20AM PST as it is suspected that he may have died of a suicide.
