    It could have been his was distracted. About 10 months or so, there was a car accident where four HS kids in my area died from drowning after their car went into a retention pond. The road curves and there is a patch of trees between the pond and the road. When you drive by there you immediately wonder how in the world they managed to get through the tress and up in the pond as the trees are close together.

    It makes you wonder who the other person was, or did his girlfriend hear the radio in the background and mistake it for someone else being in the car.?

    From NJ.com

    The mother of Louis Nix revealed the possible cause of death for the 29-year-old former New York Giants defensive lineman, whose body was found on Saturday. Jacksonville TV reporter Ben Becker talked to his mom on Monday, who said a car accident could be to blame. His mother tells me investigators told her today “it appears to be accident something may have distracted him lost control and went into the pond.”

    When I asked how investigators reached the conclusion that Nix lost control she said “Because the curve and they didn’t see the tire tracks until they really looked.”
    When I asked what day and approximate time does JSO think Nix drove into the pond his mother said “They were trying to put a time line from his phone with who he was talking to last. But couldn’t find the phone.”

    Nix mother shares with me excruciating details of how Nix was found “He surfaced from the water and on the grass. windows on passenger side was down. the pond is deep so it took some days for him to surface.” I asked Nix mother if there were any indications of foul play or if he was driving to get away from someone, she said “they (JSO) said no indication of foul play more accident”. I asked Nix mother did JSO suggest if he was impaired somehow from pain meds related to the shooting or anything else and she said “No they didn’t but he may have been distracted by his phone.”

    ESPN reports “Nix’s family reported him missing on Wednesday to police. ... According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Nix was last seen at 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday, leaving his father’s Jacksonville residence.”

    Becker reports the “Missing persons report 3 days before Nix was found says Nix gf last spoke w/him at 7:57p on Wed, was on way over but never showed. She says he was driving with another man and ‘suspected Nix was intoxicated due to the sound of his voice and choice of affectionate words.’”

    USC 2013 - his last game I think. He was hobbled and came back to stone wall USC and will that D to victory. One of my most vivid stadium memories when he came back in the game and crowd went nuts as they proceeded to stuff USC down the stretch. Always felt that compromised his career and epitomized him - selfless and couldn't let people down.

    This from Jacksonville.com (Florida Times-Union) raises more questions.

    Police have told the family little about finding her son or the ongoing investigation into what happened to him, according to Stephanie Wingfield, who is his mother.

    "They did say that it didn't look like foul play," Wingfield told The Times-Union on Sunday.

    She said it's possible her son suffered a heart attack or some other medical emergency related to his being shot in the chest nearly three months earlier during an attempted robbery.

    "It's all a mystery right now until they give me more information about what happened," she said.

    It's possible that until an autopsy is performed detectives don't know themselves how he died, Wingfield said.

    It was unclear, his mother said, whether the 29-year-old former Raines High School defensive lineman was found in the car pulled from the retention pond.

    Initial news reports from the scene said Nix was inside the car. However, Wingfield said she was told that police found his body elsewhere although no location was given.

    "The last location that his phone pinged was right there, which is why they searched the lake area for him," she said.

    "They didn't say where he was. They just said they located him but couldn't tell me anything except sorry for my loss. And I just lost it," she said of breaking down at the news.

    It's weird how I see the nastiest and tragic stuff in the news every day and it barely phases me anymore. For some reason, this one has. I didn't have to think back to who he was. He was a memorable player and personality. I noticed he was doing autograph tours and the shooting deal earlier this year. This one breaks my heart. Way too soon. True tragedy.

    Very sad moment. He was always such a great personality. And I’ll always remember his role on that 2012 team.

    RIP Louis.

    Agree. Lou should host a drive time sports talk show IMO.

    Re: Zaire... pretty sure I heard him doing color for an ESPN game last year.

Tom Mendoza donated $1000 too.

    As far as cash, it can go fast at the Pro level. Gotta pay your agent, guys pay for trainers, supplements, injuries set you back, and it sounds like he's been taking care of his dad too who had a heart attack.

    I think he's doing something along those lines. I saw some vid not too long ago of him holding a bag while kids were bouncing off. Can't recall much, but looked like HS or maybe college.

    But I agree. Do whatever it takes to get out of Jax, if that's the issue.
