Report: Darryl Hamilton killed in apparent murder-suicide

Former Milwaukee Brewer Darryl Hamilton, who has recently worked as an analyst for MLB Network, was apparently killed in a murder-suicide in his Houston-area home, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Police said officers were sent to the home on an emergency call about a disturbance. When they arrived, they found the body of Darryl Hamilton, 50, near the front entry way. The body of Monica Jordan, 44, was found in another part of the home.

Investigators said it appeared Hamilton had been shot more than once and Jordan died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police said the couple’s 14-month-old child was also found unharmed in the home. The infant was turned over to the state’s Child Protective Services.

There is very little information available at this time.

Hamilton played 13 seasons in the big leagues, batting .291/.360/.385 with 51 home runs and 454 RBI for the Brewers, New York Mets, Colorado Rockies, San Francisco Giants, and Texas Rangers. The Baton Rouge native played at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, La., before being drafted in the 11th round of the 1986 draft by the Brewers.

We will update as more information becomes available.
