Obviously the details surrounding this situation are incredibly limited and we don’t know much at all. In fact, other than the report that Siavii was found dead, there aren’t any other details.

Whenever anyone is in prison awaiting major charges, their life has taken some unfortunate turns. Dying in prison is a whole different level.

Hopefully, it wasn’t a violent or malicious situation that cost him his life.

RIP to my uso college and pro teammate Junior Siavii 😢
