Browns employee commits suicide at team facility

At about the same time Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher committed suicide in the presence of team officials in Kansas City, the Browns encountered a similar tragedy.

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that a Browns employee was found hanged in the team’s equipment shed on Saturday morning.

The coaches and players, per Glazer, already had left for Oakland, so none of them were involved in finding the employee.

We extend our condolences to the Browns’ organization, and to the family and friends of the employee whose life was lost.
