Former UCLA basketball player Billy Knight, 39, dead

A famous basketball trainer and former UCLA star Billy Knight was found dead in Phoenix on Sunday after leaving behind what is believed to be a suicide note, media sources have revealed.

William "Billy" Knight's body was found on a roadway at 2:45 a.m. near downtown. Officials have found no signs of foul play in his death, according to the Phoenix police. "I just asked God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done". In the emotional video, Billy said: "I am lost in life and I feel like there is no hope..." I isolated myself from my friends, and that's not something you should do.

Mental illness is a awful disease and should be treated very seriously.

"I hear voices in my head constantly".

"Mental illness is serious", he said.

"I was a taker", Knight says. He also noted that he "felt like I didn't belong here on earth".

Knight cited his religion, saying "I am sorry, Lord", and acknowledged that he could end up in heaven, hell or somewhere in between.

In the video, Knight issues an apology to his family and friends as well as a damning caution urging those who are depressed not to follow 'his route'.

Many local basketball pundits took to Twitter to share their condolences, including longtime sports writers Frank Burlison and Ronnie Flores.

UCLA Basketball tweeted a tribute to Knight on Tuesday. "We ask that the Bruin family keep Billy's loved ones in their thoughts during this hard time".
