Junior Seau’s Home Burglarized
The home of NFL legend Junior Seau was burglarized last week, only five days after the former San Diego Chargers linebacker committed suicide inside the house, police told the North County Times on Tuesday.
The Times reported that someone forcibly entered the Oceanside home’s garage through the doggy door at roughly 2 p.m. PT on May 7. The thief went through the cabinets before stealing a bicycle worth around $500 that was the property of a friend of Seau, the paper said.
Oceanside police Lt. Leonard Mata told the Times that the burglar did not enter other sections of the home and the only item that appeared to be missing was the bike.
Seau committed suicide by shooting himself in the chest May 2 in a spare bedroom of his house, where his girlfriend discovered him.
He played for the University of Southern California before joining the NFL’s Chargers. Seau retired in 2009 after 20 seasons in the NFL.
