The Whitman County Coroner confirmed Thursday morning that redshirt sophomore quarterback Tyler Hilinski’s death was a suicide.

A self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head caused his death, according to a news release from the coroner.

Pullman Police responded to a call at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to check up on Hilinski, 21, and found the Irvine, California native dead in his apartment.

ASWSU will hold a candlelight vigil in honor of Hilinski at 7 p.m. Friday at the Cougar Pride statue, outside Martin Stadium.

If you are in need of emotional support, call the 24-hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. It is a confidential service to those in distress.
