(NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Newly released reports are providing a closer look at the final days of a former record-setting GVSU quarterback.
30-year-old Cullen Finnerty was found dead near Baldwin after disappearing on an impromptu fishing trip.
The reports show Finnerty had a number of alcoholic drinks on the day he disappeared and told relatives in two final frantic phone calls that he believed he was being followed.
Finnerty’s wife told detectives it wasn’t the first time her husband had a ‘paranoid’ episode.
She says 18 months earlier he drove to Grand Rapids from Detroit because he feared the FBI was following him. She also said Finnerty had a past addiction to painkillers.
