Birmingham police told news outlets that De’Runnya Wilson, 25, was found unresponsive inside a south-side Birmingham home by a relative Tuesday evening.
Birmingham Police Sgt. Johnny Williams said Wilson’s death is being investigated as a homicide. A cause of death wasn’t immediately released.
Wilson played football for Wenonah High School in Birmingham. He went on to become a wide receiver at Mississippi State alongside future Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott from 2013 through 2015, finishing his career with 22 touchdowns, the second-most receiving touchdowns in school history.
You hate to hear about this kind of ending to a young man’s life. Hopefully they catch whoever is responsible.
