Denver Broncos Receiver Found Dead

By Wyatt Earp | September 21, 2010

. McKinley was a promising receiver and had a young son.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said authorities were called to McKinley’s apartment in Centennial at 3:35 p.m. local time and found his body in the second-floor master bedroom. He said detectives believe McKinley, 23, was killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Robinson said authorities were called by a female friend of McKinley’s who discovered the body after returning from an errand with his child. The sheriff declined to say if authorities found a suicide note.

McKinley’s death is the latest in a series of tragedies for the Broncos in recent years. Cornerback Darrent Williams was slain in a drive-by shooting on New Year’s Day 2007 and three months later backup running back Damien Nash collapsed and died after a charity basketball game in St. Louis.

Please pray for McKinley’s family.

    Steroids are bad news. This type of story is being repeated far too often.

    Randal – I’m starting to think that. I wonder if I’m at risk, being a Broncos fan and all?

    Danny – Agreed.

    Robbie – Terrible – for the kid and the family.

    Ingineer66 – Happens in wrestling a lot, too.

    Kenny was a former South Carolina Gamecock who holds the school record for receiving yards. He was at the SC/ GA game two games ago on the sideline. He was talking with our current players, encouraging our team to victory over the Bulldogs. Good Kid, with a smile on his face. RIP Kenny!! We’re gonna miss you.

    Wes S. – Yeah, it’s a real shame. Guy had the world by the balls, and this happens.

    Rick – Thank you.

    Roger – I read about that, He was a real stud at SC, and was expected to grow into a terrific received in Denver.
