Former Arizona State Basketball Star Jermaine Marshall Found Dead in His French Apartment at 28-Years-Old

Former Penn State and Arizona State guard Jermaine Marshall was found dead on Friday, his professional basketball team announced.


The 28-year-old was living in Nantes, France to play for Hermine Nantes Basket, which competes in the country’s second-tier professional league.

The team’s statement originally read that he was found dead inside his apartment, but that information was later removed from its online statements regarding Marshall. No other information has been disclosed.

“The Club joins the pain of his family and loved ones and gives them all support to face this terrible ordeal,” the club’s statement read, as translated from French. “The NBH is unable to play against ADA Blois on Saturday, Jan. 19 and has asked the LNB and ADA Blois to postpone the match at a later date.”
