A former UCLA basketball player was found dead in Phoenix Sunday after posting a chilling YouTube video saying “this is probably my last message on Earth,” authorities said.

William “Billy” Knight’s body was found on a roadway at 2:45 a.m. near downtown. Phoenix police said there was no evidence of foul play. There has been no official cause of death, but the YouTube video suggests suicide.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I just want to say that I lived a life of sin. I lied. I cheated. And I stole,” he said in the emotional video. “I isolated myself from my family members. I isolated myself from my friends. If this happens, you probably have a mental illness.”

He said he heard voices and didn’t know where they came from.

“Mental illness is serious,” he said. “I just want to help somebody out there who is feeling like me, maybe an ex-athlete, maybe someone who is changing jobs. I just want to at least help them out by at least putting this on YouTube.”

He urged people struggling to get help.

Knight cited his religion, saying “I am sorry, Lord,” and acknowledged that he could end up in heaven, hell or somewhere in between.

    No in between, it’s heaven or hell. And it will be heaven if we accept Jesus as our savior who loved us and died for us and let him wash away our sins (we are all sinners) and then live for him. Jesus did the hard part and he paved the way to heaven for all of us, but we must confess him as Lord and Savior of our life.

    If only he could have taken his own advice and gotten help he may be alive today. He did ask Jesus for forgiveness. That is good.
