Default Titan's WR kills self

Titans’ O.J. Murdock dead at 25, police say he committed suicide

Tennessee Titans wide receiver O.J. Murdock committed suicide this morning in front of the Tampa high school he graduated from, according to the Tampa Police Department. He was 25 years old.

According to a news release distributed by the Tampa police, Orenthal James Murdock was found in his car at approximately 8:30 a.m. in front of Middleton High School. He had suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound and was transported to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition.

Murdock was pronounced dead at 10:43 a.m.

An undrafted free agent who signed with the Titans out of Fort Hays State last year, Murdock missed the entire season with an Achilles injury. Murdock began his college career at South Carolina, where he played for two years and was a teammate of Kenny McKinley, a Denver Broncos wide receiver who committed suicide in 2010.

I wonder if the fact he committed suicide in front of his high school and the fact his high school friend McKinley committed suicide has any correlation.

This was obviously something he thought about doing, if he was in front of his high school. It's sad, and condolences go to the family and friends...
