clipboard012Feb 3, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The wife of Jay Novacek who played for the Dallas Cowboys was found dead on the 2nd of February at a Burleson home in Fort Worth, Texas. 45-year-old LeAnne Novacek was pronounced dead then and there, at the crime scene itself. The city spokesperson, Sally Ellertson also said that there was a “medical emergency, possible suicide” call at the house, to which the police had responded, only to find the dead body of LeAnne Novacek.

The COD or Cause Of Death is yet to be known. However, sources say that a police spokesperson let it out that it could have been caused by a gunshot which was self-inflicted. The apparent suicide case is still under investigation and the autopsy was scheduled to be performed on Tuesday. The results of the autopsy has not been made public yet. Any sort of foul play has been ruled out for the time being by the police authorities investigating the case. This was reported by Doug Sandifer who serves as a police commander with the Texas police.

Jay Novacek used to play in the NFL as a St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals and Cowboys. He also went on to win three Super Bowl titles along with five Pro Bowls. This was all before 1997 when he had to retire due to the back injury he had sustained. The home of Jay and LeAnne Novacek was listed close to where the dead body was found. The former NFL player has not released any official statement to the media regarding the tragedy. The suicide is a big surprise given the fact that the couple have been described as a happy and loving one.
