Last year, we brought you the tale of Darryl Stephens, the Pasadena City College football player who had been kicked off the team once it was discovered that he was a convicted sex offender and had been practicing and playing with the team while wearing a court-mandated GPS device on his ankle. According to the PCC COURIER, things have taken an even more tragic turn: Stephens was found dead on Monday of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Being kicked off the team last year apparently freed Stephens from any responsibility he might have felt to keep himself out of trouble. The PASADENA STAR-NEWS says that he was wanted in a May 5 shooting in San Bernardino that left one man dead. Police suspect that Stephens shot and killed Darron Henderson after Henderson tried to break up a fight “between two parties.”
