I sure hope this isn't CTE related.

What a sad way to die.

I know we all have our struggles, some greater than others. Too bad he couldn't get the help he needed.

Yeah, been meaning to post this thread for a few days.

Hotel workers saw him slumped over on the sofa for 3 days, when they finally realized something was wrong. Just sad.

I know a few close friends who struggle with depression. It's an enormous weight on people.

I consider myself very lucky to not have these demons.

Such a sad story. No one deserves to die alone like that. Going from being a super successful elite athlete to dying alone on a couch in a chain hotel with hardly anyone noticing. God rest his soul.

I can't imagine the grief his wife is dealing with through all of this. Gotta be tough.

Another sad part to the story, if I saw correctly, officers basically did a welfare check on him the day before at the request of his family who couldn't find him.

He was a huge military supporter as well. Did an immense amount of charity work especially with military families. His foundation helps military families, especially mothers and children who are struggling with deployment. A good man.

You would think on the second day, finding him in the exact same position, they would have taken action. When a person passes, they lose all control of body functions. The smell on the first or second day should have alerted them.
