The Indianapolis Star reported that Eric’s body was found when his sister asked for a welfare check.

‘His sister hadn’t heard from him in a couple days, which she thought was odd because he was fighting some type of illness,’ Carmel Lt. Joe Bickel told the Indianapolis Star.  

Eric was a standout basketball star at Indiana University and went on to play for the Knicks from 1992 to 1994.

He and Tracy had one son together, 20-year-old Sam, and were married for ten years from 1998 to 2008. 

Tracy also shares a six-year-old daughter, Penelope Mogol, with second husband Matt Mogol, from whom she is also now divorced.
