Cullen Finnerty, Missing Former College Quarterback, Body Found
Cullen Finnerty, the former Grand Valley State quarterback who went missing on Sunday, was found dead in the woods near the Baldwin River in Michigan Tuesday night, reported USA Today. Finnerty was 30.
A search party of nearly 100, composed of members of the Grand Valley State community, searched the wooded area near Finnerty’s abandoned boat on Tuesday. "We were walking a good line," Scott Boyd, who was on the search party that found the body, told USA Today. "I squatted down. We had seen some trail. And a girl shouted. She walked right up on it. I thought, 'Oh no.'"
Finnerty, who had been out fishing alone, was found wearing a camouflaged jacket and fishing waders a half mile north of where he had disappeared. No injuries or signs of foul play were readily apparent, according to Lake Country Sheriff Robert Hilts. An autopsy will be performed to discover the cause of death.
During his college football career, Finnerty led the Division II Grand Valley State to national championship wins in 2003, ’05 and ’06. Following his college career, he briefly served as a reserve quarterback to the Baltimore Ravens before spending some time on the Denver Broncos roster.
Finnerty is survived by his wife and two children.
