On Wednesday January 18, the grandson of Kansas State football head coach Bill Snyder, died. His death was confirmed Thursday morning by Riley County Police Department.

He was found in his apartment when Riley County police were responding to an emergency call  at 1:10 p.m. No other people were found injured.

The death of the 22 year old is being treated as a suicide case.

It is classified as an “unattended death.” Suicide does fall under that category, but means it can be under investigation still.

The media and the K-State Family is very sad to hear the news. “‘Our thoughts and prayers are with the Snyder family during this very difficult time,’ K-State athletic director Gene Taylor said in a statement released by the school.”

The football team also had some words for their coach.

“I am heartbroken for my Coach and deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Sean’s son. Please provide your thoughts and prayers for the Snyder family.”
