On Monday, former National Football League catcher Vincent Jackson was found dead in his hotel room in Florida.
The body of the 38-year-old man was found by a cleaning lady at the Homewood Suites Hotel in Tampa, Florida. According to hotel staff, Jackson checked into the hotel on January 11 and has been there ever since. Six days ago, on February 10, the local police said that Jackson was missing. Two days later, the authorities withdrew the missing report, saying that the man had been bypassed. Three days ago, Jackson was dead.
It is unclear why the former athlete stayed in this hotel for more than a month. The deceased is married and the father of three children. They live with their family in a $3.5 million house in Tampa.
