Whoa. Was He Ill?

He was 61. ESPN didn't mention the cause of death.

Edit: An astute commentor noted this book he had coming out . . .

Saunders was always one of my favorites on ESPN. He wasn't a gimmicky stooge like most of the other network anchors, he just got up there and did his thing in a calm, professional manner. Hate to see him go, heck he was the antithesis of what ESPN has stood for.

Did Saunders commit suicide?!?!


"Saunders recently co-wrote a book with John U. Bacon, Playing Hurt: My Journey from Despair to Hope, about his battles with depression. It is set for release in April 2017.

According to the description of the book, Saunders “confesses his constant battle with depression and how it nearly cost him his life.” The book, peers into places we don’t often discuss openly – psych wards and hospitals.

Here is the honesty story of a public figure facing his own mental illness head on, and emerging far better for his effort.”

He died of two self inflicted gun shots to the back of the head just like Vince Foster and the DNC staffer(the guy that was the wikileak informant that was about to testify to the FBI, but the democrats blamed it on the Russians.)
