The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's office determined Knight's death to be a suicide as the result of "multiple blunt force injuries". "And I stole", he said in the emotional video. I isolated myself from my friends. "Mental illness is serious".

'I was a taker. and that's why my life ended up where it is now.

"I isolated myself from my family, I isolated myself from my friends, and that's not something you should do", Knight said. I hear voices in my head constantly. You can't play around with life. Later in the video he says "I just feel like I don't belong here on Earth". Speaking to the Los Angeles Daily news, Escoto said that "Honeycutt had been going through some things." . Knight played professionally overseas including stints in France and Japan and worked as a basketball skills coach.

TMZ was the first to report the news.
