    Committed suicide at 23 (February 14, 2005)
    He committed suicide on Valentine's Day.
    He shot himself in the head in front of his girlfriend.

    He was not licensed to carry a gun.
    It was made known that he did not finish as one of the final two contenders, where a live bout would be scheduled for May 2005.
    It is believed he killed himself because he was frustrated by a requirement of the 'Contender' contract not allowing him to box until May.
    His 'Contender' bio said he was 'extremely soft-spoken.'
    Along with the other contestants, he received $800-$1,500 per week to stay in training.

    He was carjacked and robbed of a few hundred dollars (2004).
