MLB Analyst Darryl Hamilton Found Dead in Murder-Suicide

Darryl Hamilton, the former Mets outfielder and MLB Network analyst, has been identified by police in Pearland, Texas, as one of the two victims in a murder-suicide. He was 50.

Officers responded to disturbance call on Sunday to find Hamilton’s body near the entrance with multiple gunshot wounds, according to reports. Monica Jordan was found in another part of the house with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The couple’s 14-month-old child was found unharmed in the home.

Hamilton’s colleagues at the MLB Network became concerned Monday morning when the former baseball player did not show up for a scheduled TV appearance.

“All of us at Major League Baseball are shocked and saddened by this tragedy,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “He was a talented and personable individual, and we were proud to call him a member of the Baseball Family. On behalf of Major League Baseball, I extend my deepest sympathies to Darryl’s family and his many friends throughout our game.”

The New York Mets will hold a moment of silence for Hamilton before Friday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.

“We are saddened by the tragic death of Darryl Hamilton,” the team said in a statement. “Darryl’s vibrant personality made him a key member of our postseason teams in 1999 and 2000. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.”
