Junior Seau Dead, Cops Suspect Suicide

Update

11:23 AM PDT -- The coroner just arrived to the scene.

NFL legend Junior Seau was found dead in his home in Oceanside, CA ... and a law enforcement source at the scene tells us cops believe he shot himself.

Seau was 43-years-old ... and leaves behind 3 kids and an ex-wife.

Cops are currently at Seau's home -- located in San Diego County -- and were seen talking with a man who was inside the house and appeared distraught.

We're told Seau sent text messages to his ex-wife and 3 kids yesterday saying, "Love you." We're told they all responded and didn't suspect anything was wrong. We're told he last saw his kids 3 weeks ago.

Sources close to Seau tell us family members didn't notice any signs of depression in recent weeks.

Seau was a beast in the NFL -- skyrocketing to fame thanks to his explosive play with the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. The USC standout was selected in the first round of the NFL draft in 1990 and played in the league for 20 years.

Seau was involved in a car accident back in 2010 when he drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, CA hours after he was arrested for allegedly attacking his girlfriend. Seau later said he was not trying to kill himself ... insisting he had fallen asleep at the wheel.

So sad.

I remember when he came to Miami for a couple years how pumped I was.

He was a fun player to watch and an amazing athlete, and humanitarian with his charity donations. Sucks to see him go, but everyone has their reasons for suicide.

R.I.P. Seau.

Before the Anti gunners come in. He tried to kill himself before by driving his car off a cliff. He claimed he fell asleep but I don't buy that. Secondly the gun didn't kill him his decision to kill himself did. He could of easily jumped out of a window or jumped off a bridge. He was set on killing himself regardless of the tool he used.

In between his mom's incoherent blathering, she kind of reminded me of one of those smiling Buddha dolls.

You have got to be kidding! Could you possibly be any more ignorant or defensive of your precious and over-the-top stance on guns?!?!?!? Give it a rest. I am a gun owner and it's extremists like you that give us a bad rep!

He was an incredible player and athlete and always a pleasure to watch. May he rest in peace.
