Drug Dealers and Killers Strike Again……It is a shame that another brother is dead while in custody.  We will never know the truth of what actually happened on the inside.  However, TMZ is reporting, Ex-NFL star Lawrence Phillips is dead — and officials are investigating his death as a suicide after he was found in his prison cell.  

Philips was found at 12:05 AM Wednesday when staff conducted a routine security check and noticed Lawrence was unresponsive. 
Officials say he was transported to an outside hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 1:27 AM. Next of kin has been notified. 
Phillips had been in a segregated single-cell unit since April — after he was suspected of killing his cellmate 37-year-old Damion Soward. He was recently charged with murder.
The 40-year-old — who played for the Rams, Dolphins and 49ers — was initially locked up in Kern Valley State Prison in California on a 31-year sentence for all sorts of convictions, including spousal abuse.
He was a running back at the University of Nebraska in the 1990s before playing in the NFL in a career cut short by off-field incidents and legal trouble.
