Eric Patterson #41 of the Indianapolis Colts and Jake Kumerow #84 of the Cincinnati Bengals fight for the pass at Lucas Oil Stadium on September 3, 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was released by Indianapolis that September, and after short stints with the Rams and Browns, Patterson faded out of the National Football League spotlight in 2016.

Police have not confirmed the former National Football League player was the victim, but family members and Ball State coach Mike Neu have confirmed Patterson's death.

Unselected in the 2015 NFL Draft, he signed with New England and was released a month later.

"He had a very gregarious personality", Plant coach Robert Weiner told The Times.

Among those mourning is the son of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Colts coach Tony Dungy, who tweeted his son Eric played with Patterson at Plant. "We are extremely saddened by this, and we ask that you please keep Eric and his family in your prayers", Neu wrote.
