Former Alabama football player and news reporter Christopher Sign died in an apparent suicide

Christopher Sign was a standout at Alabama for the Crimson Tide and also had a pretty solid career as a news anchor. Unfortunately, police belive the 45 year old veteran news broadcaster took his own life.

At 8:13 am according to police reports, Hoover police received a call of a person unresponsive at a residence on Scout Trace.

Police are treating the investigation as a suicide.

According to AL.com, Sign was quite the reporter and even wrote a book.

While a reporter and morning anchor at ABC affiliate KNXV-TV in Phoenix, Sign broke the story of the June 2016 secret tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Sign wrote a book about his experience called Secret on the Tarmac.

Sign also won a 2014 Emmy Award for breaking news for his coverage of the shooting of two Phoenix police officers, as well as an Edward R. Murrow Award for spot news, for his coverage of the search for the “Baseline Killer” and “Serial Shooter” who terrorized Phoenix in the summer of 2016.

Please keep the Sign family in your prayers during this tough time.
