    From what I am hearing it was suicide a gumshot to the Chest . Same way a Defensive Back from the Bears Bureson commited it a few years back so his brain could be studied.
    I willing to say concussions are going to be part of this in the end.
    Either way SAd News for any fan of the NFL Great player even if not on your team.

    R U KIDDING ME. I'm a San Diego Charger Fan, a frequent visitor of Seau's in Mission Valley (it closed today btw).

    I am in shock - he was an incredible man who did SO much for the youth of San Diego. My DH will be so sad to hear this news

    Here's an updated article from our paper this morning:

    http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/...at-seaus-home/

    I don't know why he did it, but if anyone is feeling depressed or sucidal - make a phone call, contact a friend - something!

    Hugs,

    Mel

    Girlfriend called LE at 9:35 a.m. PDT; had returned to residence to find Seau unconscious with a gunshot wound to the chest.

    Case investigated as suicide. Handgun was found near body.

    Attempts to resuscitate Seau were performed but were unsuccessful.

    (from initial public statement by LE)

    local television has been interruped due to this (suicide??). He was loved by the entire county - this is such a tragic loss.

    This news is shocking but I can't say it's surprising after the 2010 incident. To me that seemed a cry for help. So sad.

    Junior Seau - Dead, possible suicide

    So sad for our community and for his family. His Momma's interview this morning had me in tears.

    Interesting that there's not yet been a presser. The chief, after making his brief statement hours ago now, said a spokesperson would be out "to answer your questions" in the next 15 minutes. Nothing since then though.

    Police: Junior Seau found dead at California home
    By GILLIAN FLACCUS, AP
    25 minutes ago

    OCEANSIDE, Calif. — Former NFL star Junior Seau was found shot to death at his home Wednesday morning in what police said appeared to be a suicide. He was 43.

    Police Chief Frank McCoy said Seau's girlfriend reported finding him unconscious with a gunshot wound to the chest and lifesaving efforts were unsuccessful. A gun was found near him, McCoy said.

    Seau's mother appeared before reporters, weeping uncontrollably.

    "I don't understand ... I'm shocked," Luisa Seau cried out.

    Her son gave no indication of a problem when she spoke to him by phone earlier this week, she said.

    "He's joking to me, he called me a `homegirl,'" she said...

    A shock, indeed, at least to those of us who didn't know him personally. Obviously, I can't speak for his family and friends.

    I'm always surprised when someone attempts suicide with a gunshot to the chest. How can s/he be sure to hit the right organ? (I mean as opposed to a shot to the head, where the location of the brain is pretty well indicated.)

    His mom made me cry. Take Me Lord, and she MEANT it. I am so sorry for her.


    But I am suspicious still myself. He has 3 kids. I am surprised that he would shoot himself at home, in the chest, with three kids at home. I do not understand this, at all.

    Very sad news for the Seau family.

    With regards to your comment about suicide by gunshot wound to the chest. I think those with training such as LE, the military, special ops of some sort, and perhaps those with medical training would know exactly where to shoot and not miss their heart. I've actually heard the heart has fewer misses than the brain/head. (think along exit wounds...)

    Suicide is always a very sad option. My prayers go out to the Seau family.
