Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadViolenceNFLControversy

His family will conduct an independent investigation.

This is an interesting development.

As we previously reported, Lawrence Phillips was found dead in his jail cell from an apparent suicide. However, the ex-NFL star's mother, Juanita, and defense attorneys are saying that a note found in the scandalized sports star's shoe does not match his handwriting.

The late athlete — who had been accused of killing his cellmate while serving a 31-year sentence — had written multiple letters to his mother and lawyers, and they're saying the penmanship is not the same.

One of the football player's legal reps, Clayton Campbell, told USA Today that the note "said, and this to the best of my recollection, 'Did you hear the one about the football player who hung himself from the TV mount in his cell?' And where it said football player, it looked like somebody after the fact put the letter 'X' before 'football,' so it said 'X-football player.'"

His other lawyer, Jesse Whitten, described the other side of the note, saying:

In the sad tweet, a friend of the super fan "Linda" alleges the Belieber took her own life by jumping out of a building. Rumors have suggested that the young woman was hospitalized for depression at the time of her death — fans have assumed this is from where she jumped.

Take a look at the unfortunate message sent to Linda's 150,000 followers (below):

"This is Linda's friend and this is the request from her parents to inform you that she committed suicide. The autopsy says that she jumped from the building which matches with what the gardener from the hospital says, that her body was lying on the pavement. We lost her last night and she is in our prayers. The pressure for her was just too much and she couldn't bear it anymore. We're terribly sorry."

How heartbreaking.

News of the alleged death have really hurt members of Bieber's fandom community and has touched other internet communities as well.

Check out the reactions to the sad situation — under the hashtag #RIPBelieberLinda, which was trending in the US all morning — (below):
