Dave Mirra dead in apparent suicide

Dave Mirra, long time biker and X Games veteran, has died. He was 41.

According to Greenville, NC police, Mirra’s body was found on Thursday with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. Responding to an apparent suicide, they discovered his body in a truck. 

Mayor Allen Thomas called Mirra “a great friend and wonderful human being.”

“He called Greenville, North Carolina home and was as humble a guy talking with kids on a street corner about bikes as he was in his element on the world stage. A young life with so much to offer was taken too soon,” said Thomas, CBS affiliate WTVR reported.
