Rest in Peace Melvin Turpin
Former Kentucky Wildcat Melvin Turpin has reportedly committed suicide. One of the "Twin Towers" along with Sam Bowie, Turpin was selected 6th in the 1984 NBA Draft. The 49 year old Turpin was a three time ALL-SEC player, and a two time All-American. I cannot imagine what would cause someone to take their own life, the pain and sadness must have reached a level that I hope I never understand. Rest in Peace Dinner Bell Mel!
