I'd avoid wiki for confirmation on anything breaking news wise.

I work in law enforcement.  Reasons vary on why people do these crimes.  All you theorists need to know is 2 familes will be deep in grief and their lives will be forever changed.  Please say a prayer for the surving loved ones, friends and teammates. They will need it.

Kind of creepy that he drove to Arrowhead to kill himself. Wonder why?

Edit: to thank Pioli and Crennel? Still very creepy. Were they really the most important people in his life?

I just heard on WGR that he possibly killed the girlfriend in front of her mother. That's just so tragic.
