I wouldn't jump to the conclusion of suicide on this one. Bullet to the chest instead of the head? I've heard these stories go both ways.

There was another former NFL player that shot himself in the chest specifically so he could donate his brain for research on the effects of brain damage. If there aren't any signs of a break in Seau could have been doing the same.

Dave Duerson was the football player who shot himself in the chest so his brain could be donated to brain research.

Either way, very sad. Wow.

Morbid comment: chest shots are more likely to be fatal when attempting suicide, and less likely to leave you mentally impaired if you survive. Surviving suicide and facing the horrors of self-inflicted brain damage are even scarier to someone in that mindset.

Who knows what demons exist in any mind. Real depression manifests so many different ways, and for someone who has never experienced it, the depths of the pain, confusion, weariness, denial, apathy and disassociation is nigh impossible to understand.

Cool story from a Marine who hung out with Junior outside of Camp Pendleton.

It looks like the Marine is wearing a WSU shirt too.
