The police found the player’s body after they were alerted by a call.
The investigation is still ongoing but according to reports the incident appears to be a suicide considering the gun wound that appeared to be self inflicted.
However nothing has been made official yet until more evidence will be collected.
It’s hard to come up with reasons for McKinley’s tragedy but the fact that he was on reserve after a pretty severe knee injury might be one.
The incident also attracts attention to the series of tragedies that affected the Denver Broncos these years. Another of their players, cornerback Darrent Williams died in a drive by shooting in the first day of 2007.
