December 03, 2012|By Houston Mitchell

A member of the Cleveland Browns' grounds crew killed himself at their practice facility, a team spokesman said Sunday.

The man's body was found Saturday morning at the facility in suburban Cleveland, the same day Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager after earlier killing his girlfriend.

The Browns released a statement calling the man, who was not identified, a good friend and an outstanding employee and saying the team's heartfelt condolences go out to his family.

"This is a terrible tragedy," the statement said. "He will be missed by everyone in the Cleveland Browns organization."
