NFL star Brandon Brief is mourning a devastating loss.
On Monday, Sept. 13, the previous New York Giants and Carolina Panthers linebacker confirmed his firstborn daughter Karli Brief‘s premature demise.
“My coronary heart is damaged. I’ve misplaced the sunshine of my life,” he wrote on Fb. “My oldest daughter Karli handed away this morning in a mindless act of gun violence. The love she had was so pure and true. The world misplaced a wonderful soul.”
He closed his message, “Thanks to everybody who has reached out and please hold our household in your prayers as we battle via this tough time.”
Earlier that day, Allegheny County Police Division confirmed first responders discovered an unnamed grownup girl affected by what seemed to be a gunshot wound to the top in McKeesport, Penn. She was pronounced useless on the scene and an investigation has since been opened.
The 44-year-old soccer professional later took to social media once more on Wednesday, Sept. 15 to share particulars of Karli’s funeral in his native Mckeesport. “Thanks to your caring phrases and help,” he wrote, “as our household mourns the passing of our beloved Karli Brief.”
