Lee Collins’ tragic death is not being treated as suspicious after the Yeovil Town club captain passed away suddenly, aged just 32.
The football world has been in mourning since learning of the news on Thursday.
Yeovil confirmed centre-half Collins had died on Wednesday, heartbreakingly leaving behind partner Rachel and three daughters.
Avon and Somerset police have now spoken out on the death and revealed in a statement: “Officers attended a report of a sudden death at an address in High Street, West Coker yesterday evening.
“Sadly, the body of a 32-year-old man was located.
“His death is not being treated as suspicious and has been referred to the coroner.
“His family have been informed and our thoughts are with them."
Collins was on the bench for Yeovil as recently as last week for Yeovil’s 3-1 National League win over Barnet.
He has missed large chunks of the season due to injury, and as a sign of respect, Yeovil’s game against Altrincham on Friday has been called off following the shocking news.
Collins began his career at Premier League club Wolves and also represented the likes of Port Vale, Northampton and Barnsley during his career.
Following Collins’ passing, no details of how he died have been released.
Yeovil’s statement earlier on Thursday, meanwhile, read: “All at Yeovil Town Football Club are mourning the loss of club captain Lee Collins.
“Lee sadly passed away yesterday and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
“We ask everyone to respect the family's privacy at this time. The club will make no further comment at this time.”
