A former Mississippi State University wide receiver has been found dead in an Alabama home.
De’Runnya Wilson was found dead inside the home in Birmingham on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old’s death is currently being treated as a homicide, according to police.
Investigators said Wilson’s body was found by a relative but they not elaborated on how he died.
Sources told AL.com that he was shot dead.
Birmingham Police Sgt. Johnny Williams only said evidence inside the home led detectives to believe his death was a homicide.
‘Currently, we are in the homicide investigation mode and there are limited details on this investigation,’ he said.
Wilson was a wide receiver at Mississippi State from 2013 to 2015.
He finished his college career with 22 touchdowns and 133 receptions for 1,949 yards.
He left Mississippi State early to enter the NFL draft.
After going undrafted, he spent a period of time on the Chicago Bears’ practice squad.
In a statement ti WVTM13, then-Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said he was sad to hear of Wilson’s ‘tragic passing’.
