Junior Seau’s home burglarized

Here’s a sad and pathetic footnote to the death of linebacker Junior Seau.  His house in Oceanside, California was burglarized last week, according to the North County Times.

Police say that, on May 7, someone used the dog door to force entry through the garage door, rummaged through cabinets in the garage, and stole a $500 bike that belonged to one of Seau’s friends.

Only the garage was entered, not the other areas of the home.

Of course, that doesn’t make it any better.  Here’s hoping they catch whoever did it, not because of the bike but because of the thought that anyone would enter any portion of Seau’s home in search of things to steal.

  1. There really are so many pieces of garbage in the world. The dude just took his life and left his family devastated. Who would really think it’s acceptable to try and bring the family even more pain? Just awful.

  2. Unfortunately this is a common occurrence when scumbags become aware of a death, especially a high profile one, because they know there is nobody at home to protect these items. Pathetic but common

  3. There is when the police catch them, dump them off in the neighborhood Seau grew up in and tell everyone what they did. Let the beatdown begin…

  4. As bad as this is. It just a reminder of such a wrong decision he made to kill himself…thats just material things…still so sad for his family!! They all have been robbed by seau!

  5. There are a lot of tweekers in that area… can’t expect them to act appropriately. They are all soulless…

  6. Of course he’s a scumbag he’s a thief!! DUH! Not like this was a regular schmo that decided to take advantage of the situation, the guy was already a piece of crap so what difference does it make who or when he breaks into someones home.

    Dead peoples homes get broken into all the time, thieves peruse the obituaries looking for addresses. The fact that it’s happened to one of our beloved sucks but you guys are just making yourselves look silly by getting all worked up over this.

  7. Low Life! We Don’t Want You In America! Move To Antarctica You Good-For-Nothing Piece Of Fecal Matter!

  8. A $500 bicycle would most likely be a decent entry level quality mountain bike, not the cheap mountain bikes you get at Target or Toys R Us. Decent entry level road bikes start at around $700. Anyway, string the bastard up in a tall tree (wearing a bike helmet, ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET).

  9. Funny how many pieces of garbage actually thumbs down these comments against this behavior… or comments that pay respects. Oh wait that’s right…. that’s because you are the type of scum that go and steal like that

    Really bro? Because one dbag steals from his house it discounts all the amazing things people have done in san diego for seau?

    The whole county has been in mourning, dumb comments like that make you look like a tool.

  11. I’m not going to lose sleep over this. A selfish jerk broke into the house of a selfish coward. What comes around goes around. People are worried about his poor family, followed by a RIP JS. What about what JS did to his family? He didn’t give a single sh*t about them by killing himself. I’m sure his family is much more hurt & devastated by losing JS than they are about the burglary. JS is just as much a selfish POS as this thief is, except JS is also a coward.

  13. I went to church for several years with an old woman who would watch the obituaries and then go park outside the houses when funerals and visitations were going on, in order to alert police if there happened to be any suspicious activity. She’d had a bad experience in this area at some point, and she decided to do what she could to mitigate the bad impact of it happening to other folks. And then she actually did it–for years and years. There’s a lot of despicable behavior in the world, which makes it easy to cower and lose hope. But there’s also a heck of a lot of quiet heroism.

  14. Place those guys in jail for longer than the typical domestic burglar!!!!

    They did this to the wrong guy and spat in his presence!!!!

  15. How could anyone disagree that this is a horrible thing to do: break into someones home who just died, not to mention all the great things he did for SD. Not everyone has a soul/conscious.

    @sdcameron- Tell your charger buddies to back off the “it was a RAIDERS fan” line.

    Low class BS.

    Amazing story, amazing lady!
    And I thought my MIL was a little out there when she asked me to stay at their house to prevent drug thieves when visitation for my FIL was going on. Stupid me.

  18. Sometimes we forget how thoughtless, inconsiderate, and cold-hearted people are. We all like to believe that in times of tragedy or sorrow we can count on our neighbors to help us through, but when people do something like this it reaffirms the fact that we don’t live in the close knit societies we used to know and love and recognize as our home, or neighborhood, our country. robbing somebody of personal property is a low blow, it sucks and it hurts, but obviously its worse when you choose to target a person/family who has just recently lost a close member.

  19. Don’t you think if they knew it was Seau’s house they would have broken into the house and not just the garage? Why stop at a bicycle? There must be tons of valuables inside the house. Just a thought.

  20. Hate to piss on the parade of folks who are mad at the burglar but shouldn’t we be upset at Seau too for leaving his family? The answer is yes. He acted as God and took his own life, thereby depriving his family of their son, brother, uncle…
    That was not right!

  21. Kappa is disgusting and pathetic for using this thread to attack Seau. Anyone that agrees with him is just as pathetic.

    Unless you were inside Junior’s head before he decided to end his life, you can’t pretend that you understand his motivation. No one can!

    Hopefully, the researchers responsible for the study of Seau’s brain will be able to shed light on the effects that multiple concussive events incurred over his long career could have had.

    As for the burglars of Junior’s or any other home of a deceased person, there will be a series of karmic responses for their evil acts.
