One of the winningest, uh man I hate saying that winningest just doesn’t sound grammatically correct sorry anyway, quarterbacks in the NCAA was found last night after he had gone missing over the weekend.
Cullen Finnerty, 30, who led Grand Valley State University to three Division II national titles and more than 50 wins during his 4 years as a starter in Allendale, Mich. went missing Sunday. His body was found about 8 p.m. in woods within a mile of where he disappeared, said Lake County Undersheriff Dennis Robinson
The cause of death wasn’t immediately clear, but Robinson said foul play wasn’t suspected. He said the body was not in the water and was found in a wooded area in Webber Township, near the family’s cottage. An autopsy would be needed to determine how Finnerty died, the undersheriff said.
The search drew scores of police and volunteers, including staff and players from Grand Valley State.
Finnerty last spoke to a family member that night in a phone call in which he said ”he was nervous about something,” Sheriff Robert Hilts said earlier Tuesday. Based on that call, the family suspected ”he might be having some kind of a mental episode – that he was either afraid or something and ran off into the woods,” Hilts said.
I’m very interested in the cause of death as I was expecting him to be found face down in the water. Was it a heart attack, lightning strike, stroke, or something more sinister? I’ll see if I can keep you all up to date on this matter. Lets just keep our hopes up that it was something natural. You will be missed by many Cullen Finnerty.
