That’s awful. Anyone know the cause of his death ?

RIP

Police statement said there weren`t any suspicious circumstances and a report is being prepared for the coroner.
In most cases that indicates he took his own life or died suddenly with something like a AAA (Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm)
32, living the dream, just goes to show.
:cry:

By way of a follow up. :(

That really does put into perspective the pressures that footballers, particularly in the lower leagues, obviously feel.

Something to make us all stop and think before we post hurtful things that players may read. We may not think some of them are very good, but they're young men, often away from home and family, in a very high pressure occupation, and (irrespective of perceived ability) deserve to be treated with respect.

RIP Lee Collins.

Male suicide is a real problem and no one knows what people are going through. We all say things in the heat of the moment but we all do need to think about the consequences of our words.

More than ever, this reminds us that it really is only a bloody game!

Possibly because they stated the cause of death before the inquest has closed!
The coroner only has the post mortem cause of death and will be waiting for a toxicology report to eliminate or quantify drugs, alcohol etc as contributory factors.
That`ll be done at ours as we are contracted to lots of coroners across the UK.

I totally agree Colin.
Some of the vindictive comments on the players sometimes really makes you wonder.

RIP Lee Collins
