On Monday, 23 year old Kenny McKinley, a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos, was found dead in his home of an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound.
Although the incident appears to be a suicide, nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
The investigation is ongoing. Right now there is no reason for this tragic event.
McKinley has been on injured reserve since August, after suffering a severe knee injury.
This isn’t the first time the Broncos have had to deal with a tragic death. In 2007 cornerback Darrent Williams died after being shot in a drive by shooting incident.
It's always sad to see professional athletes driven to suicide over the pressure and fame.
