Former Bills WR found dead in Indiana

Former Bills WR found dead in Indiana

Investigators say that former National Football League wide receiver James W. Hardy was the man whose body was found in the Maumee Maumee River on Wednesday.

According to the coroner's report, via Fort Wayne's NBC, Hardy's family had reported he was missing weeks ago.

Emergency services responded to a reported body in the water called in by a city of Fort Wayne employee, the statement said.

The Allen County Coroner's Office has not yet determined how Hardy died.




Hardy, 31, was a 2008 second-round pick but caught only nine passes in a rookie season that ended with a torn ACL that cost him most of his second season, when he had only one catch. He graduated in 2004 and then went on to play football and basketball at Indiana University. He also played for the Baltimore Ravens before being released in 2011.

Hardy was a local star, having played his high school ball at Elmhurst High School and his college ball at Indiana. He finished his National Football League career with 10 receptions for 96 yards and two touchdowns.

Details on how Hardy passed haven't been released, but the news is tragic nonetheless, as he was arrested multiple times and ultimately placed in a mental facility after being deemed unfit for trial.
