According to the report, Maries County Sheriff’s Office say the cause of death is suicide.

Bourbon suited up for the Jayhawks from 2010-2013, including an impressive campaign as a junior that resulted in the player starting in all of his team’s 12 games. As you would expect, his former teammates are sending their thoughts and prayers on social media.
