Vincent Jackson, the very popular former wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver was found dead in his hotel room earlier this week.
Jackson was found dead at the Homewood Suites on Palm River Road in Brandon, Florida on Feb. 15.
But a shocking new report suggests he may have been dead for a whopping three days may have been dead for three days before he was found.
A preliminary report from the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner Department says staff members at the hotel went into Jackson’s room on Feb. 13 and Feb. 14 and found him sitting slouched over on the couch and assumed he was sleeping.
The report says the staff members went into Jackson’s room again the morning of Feb. 15 and “were concerned when they found [him] in the same position.” The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said earlier this week a housekeeper found Jackson dead in his hotel room around 11:30 a.m.
Jackson’s family had reported him missing on Feb. 10. According to the new report, the last time deputies confirmed Jackson was alive was on Feb. 11 when they were called to check on him. But the sheriff’s office says deputies canceled the missing persons report after checking on Jackson at the hotel on Feb. 12.
The preliminary report from the medical examiner reiterates what the sheriff’s office said earlier this week that there were no signs of trauma. The medical examiner’s office is still working to determine Jackson’s exact cause of death.Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Crystal Clark said Wednesday that family members indicated Jackson had suffered from chronic alcoholism and concussions, but made clear the investigation into his cause of death was not complete.
It’s very sad that Mr. Jacckson had an addiction struggle.
And to die alone like that, in a hotel room, and left there for thee days is even more tragic.
Please, pray for his family, they must be devastated by this news.
