-ESPNThe report said Owens was asked by rescue workers "if he was attempting to harm himself, at which time [he] stated, 'Yes.'"
Apparently he tried to overdose on pain killers. Some of the lesser-known details of Owens are that he was a bullied kid in school, and was actually a loner in the locker rooms. In his previous two teams he was very lonesome, even crying to his mother on the phone. The flamboyancy only seems to be a cover up for his psychological shortcomings.
Everyone is human.
