For all of those searching for James Dungy's Myspace profile, it has been removed from Myspace.

There is far reaching NFL Fallout on this story as Tony Dungy and his family have had a wide swath of influence on people over the years. Dennis Green - Arizona Carinals head coach and former boss of Tony Dungy in Minnesota is quoted as being "devestated" at Jamie's loss. All around the league current and former players and coaches are speaking out in support of Tony Dungy in this dark time. I'll let Google News guide you on this story instead of linking to several news sources... But names to look for quotes from include Lovie Smith, Herm Edwards, Mike ALstott, Keyshawn Johnson, John Lynch, Green, Malcom Glazer, Derrick Brooks, Rich McKay and a wide plethora of others.
