Billy Knight was facing child sex abuse charges

UCLA basketball alum Billy Knight found dead after posting YouTube video

According to court records in Maricopa County, Arizona, prosecutors charged Knight with two counts apiece for sexual conduct with a minor, sexual abuse and molestation of a child. The alleged crime occurred April 1, 2017.

Knight was 39 years old at the time of his death.

Phoenix police said Knight was located in the roadway in the area of Central Avenue and McKinley Street at 2:45 a.m.

Authorities say there has been no sign of foul play in Knight's death.

Nonetheless, there is a strong belief that Knight may have committed suicide judging from the sorry tone of his last message that he had penned down and posted verbally on Youtube. "It's serious. And I wasn't honest with a lot of people- even my mom, my brother, and my family members". "I isolated myself from my friends, and that's not something you should do".

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

"I just asked God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done". Life is not a game.

After graduating from UCLA, Knight went undrafted and spent time in the National Basketball Association D-League before going to the Harlem Globetrotters and playing overseas. Honeycutt's death is now being investigated as a suicide. Speaking to the Los Angeles Daily news, Escoto said that "Honeycutt had been going through some things." . "I told her to call 911".
