Junior Seau sent an 'I love you' text to his three children before he shot himself in the chest. The former New England Patriots linebacker reportedly committed suicide in his home in California and was found dead on Wednesday morning. While he did not leave a suicide not (at least one has not been discovered yet), his final text messages to his kids may have been all he needed to say.
"Seau’s ex-wife, Gina, said that on Tuesday he sent her and each of their three children — Sydney, Jake and Hunter — a text message, ending with 'I love you,'" reports The LA Times.
There has not been any further details released about what else Junior Seau said in the texts to his children or his ex-wife, but it sounds like there may have been more to his cryptic messages. It wasn't until the next day that Seau was found dead but the exact timeline of events in unclear at this point.
