Police reported Wednesday afternoon that Junior Seau did not leave a suicide note before apparently taking his own life. The New York Times' Greg Bishop notes that it is still possible that a note could be found, or that it may have been left electronically. Police do not expect to have the full results from the investigation until next week.
Seau did reportedly contact family members via text messages sent Tuesday night. He did not mention suicide at the time, however, instead telling his ex-wife, Gina Seau, and each their three children together "I love you" in separate texts.
The former San Diego Chargers linebacker was discovered by his girlfriend in his Oceanside, Calif., home when she returned from the gym. A call was placed to dispatchers afterwards reporting a possible suicide.
