A former Kansas University basketball signee has died.
Chris Lindley, 34, who had his foot amputated in January of 1990 after a train accident, died at Lawrence Memorial Hospital after being transported from a home he was living at in East Lawrence.
Lindley lost his foot, and his chance of playing basketball at KU, after falling under a train. He attended high school at Raytown South before signing a letter of intent to play at KU.
Police conducted a death investigation Thursday afternoon, but Sgt. Paul Fellers, a department spokesman, said that the death did not appear to be suspicious.
