BMX legend Dave Mirra passes away aged 41 in apparent suicide

According to TMZ his body was found in his truck on Thursday afternoon following an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound . He had been visiting friends in the area a short time before the incident.

We mourn the loss today of a great friend and wonderful human being who touched the lives of so many around the world with his gift. He called Greenville, North Carolina home and was as humble a guy talking with kids on a street corner about bikes as he was in his element on the world stage. A young life with so much to offer was taken too soon,” said City of Greenville Mayor, Allen Thomas.

The star, who held the record for the most X Games medals until 2013, is survived by his wife Lauren and two daughters.

Dave Mirra had his own line of video games in the early 2000
