In the wake of the news surrounding the Kansas City Chiefs’ Jovan Belcher, the Cleveland Browns received some startling news of their own on Saturday.
A member of the groundskeeping crew, Eric Eucker, committed suicide at the team facility in Berea on Saturday morning. His body was found hanging in a storage shed, which was confirmed by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner to WEWS Newschannel 5.
The Browns released this statement:
“This is a terrible tragedy and our heartfelt condolences go out to Eric’s family. Eric was a good friend and colleague, and an outstanding employee. He will be missed by everyone in the Cleveland Browns organization.”
