Mel Turpin Suicide Death?
Mel Turpin, a former NBA player and all-American Kentucky center, committed suicide Thursday at his home in North Lexington, Ky.
The Fayette County Coroner had said that Mel Turpin took his own life in his Lexington house, but didn't say how.
Margaret Burrus, his sister, tearfully told reporters outside her home that her brother was diabetic and trying to keep it under control.
What was the cause of Mel Turpin's suicide? Did he leave a note before his death?
