Prayers to the Wilson family, because this is absolutely horrific.

Tragedy struck the family of Indiana wide receiver Cam Wilson over the weekend when both of his parents were found deceased in the last two days.

On Friday, his mother, Cassondra, was the victim of a fatal shooting. She was 45-years old at the time of her death. Troy Wilson, Cam’s father and Cassondra’s ex-husband, who was thought to be the person of interest in that shooting, was found the very next day dead as well, according to a report from The Herald Bulletin.

Indiana head football coach Tom Allen released a statement:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Cam and his family,” the statement read. “We’ve been in constant communication with Cam once we learned of this tragedy. He is a tremendous young man, and we will continue to assist and support him in any and all ways. We ask everyone to respect Cam and his family’s privacy during this difficult time.”

Wilson transferred to Indiana from Illinois State after the 2017 season. He had to sit out the 2018 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He played in 3 games in 2019 and won Scout Team Player of the Week.
