Billy Knight

Billy Knight, a former UCLA basketball player, was found dead in Arizona early Sunday, shortly after posting a chilling video on social media.

TMZ Sports reported Knight could've been sentenced for more than 50 years if he had been found guilty of all charges.

Knight, who was 39 years old, played for UCLA between 1997 and 2002.

Knight's death came just days after Tyler Honeycutt, 27, fatally shot himself during a standoff with police on Friday.

Along with being a former UCLA player, Knight was a basketball operations assistant for the Northern Arizona Suns of the Developmental G League in the 2016 - 2017 season.

On July 8, Knight posted a video to Youtube titled "Billy Knight I am sorry Lord", which he began by saying, "This is probably my last message on earth".

In the video, Knight speaks about his "life of sin", and tells the viewers that it will be his "last message on earth". The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's office determined Knight's death to be a suicide as the result of "multiple blunt force injuries". In the emotional video, Billy said: "I am lost in life and I feel like there is no hope..." I lied, I cheated and I stole from many people.

'I was a taker. and that's why my life ended up where it is now. "No officers were injured and it's unknown if the suspect was struck", said the Los Angeles Police Department at the time.

Mental illness is a bad disease and should be treated very seriously. I isolated myself from my family members, I isolated myself from my friends. Life is not a game. "I just ask God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done". But he said he left "some things" for him, saying it's not much, but it's what he had left. Knight played professionally overseas including stints in France and Japan and worked as a basketball skills coach.
