The already-tragic situation involving former UCLA basketball player Billy Knight took an even darker turn on Wednesday.
According to reports, former Bruins Basketball player, Lorenzo Meta-Real was first to reveal the tragic news, via Twitter. Before his untimely death, Billy posted a six-minute video on YouTube on July 8 titled "Billy Knight "I'm Sorry Lord" that hinted at possible suicide. At this time it's unclear his cause of death, but it will soon be determined by the medical examiner in Arizona's Maricopa County, according to ESPN.
During the video, Knight becomes emotional as he repeatedly references his faith and calls on people with mental health difficulties to reach out to loved ones. "I isolated myself from my friends, and that's not something you should do".More news: Ken Giles has choice words for A.J. Hinch
Mental illness is a awful disease and should be treated very seriously. "I just want to say that I lived a life of sin". "I lied, I cheated and I stole", he said. I was a taker.
"I isolated myself from my family members", Knight said. You can't play around with life. I hear voices in my head constantly.
Knight continues, "I just ask God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done". But he said he left "some things" for him, saying it's not much, but it's what he had left. After college, he played in the D-League in France and Japan.More news: Pence Responds to Democrat Criticisms: 'Kavanaugh Will Not Legislate from the Bench'
