    Dave Mirra, BMX biker and veteran X Games star, dead of an apparent suicide

    Police say veteran X Games biker Dave Mirra has died in North Carolina. He was 41.

    Greenville police said Thursday night that Mirra's body was found earlier in the day with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.


    Mirra was an accomplished BMX rider and one of the most decorated athletes in X Games history, medaling every year from 1995 to 2008 and winning 14 gold medals. (...)

    He also hosted MTV's "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" and two video games carried his name.
