We always find it strange to learn about the sudden disappearance of person. The media tends to look at the disappearance by discovering strange news or foul acts that might have led to the incident. This is exactly the case when it comes to Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler’s brother in law. His wife, former reality television star Kristin Cavallari, has been the topic of conversation after her brother was reported missing in Grand County Utah. Unfortunately, a long search did not provide the family with positive results.
Initial investigation after Michael goes missing
Michael Cavallari was considered a missing in person when authorities located his abandoned Honda Civic on November 27th. They checked the area surrounding Grand County’s Interstate 70, but there was no sign of him. A credit card transaction receipt led police investigators to a convenience store located in Monticello, Utah. Security tape footage positively identified Michael Cavallari in the same Honda Civic found abandoned. Michael lives in San Clemente, California and there was no information as to why he was located in a part of Utah. Although a tough time for his wife and himself, Jay Cutler continued his job as starting quarterback for the Bears and played in games following his brother in law’s disappearance.
Search results continue with unfavorable outcome
The best case scenario would be investigators finding Michael Cavallari alive and well. Kristen remained hopeful throughout the week following her brother’s disappearance. Unfortunately, the body of Michael was found on December 10th, two weeks after he initially went missing. Kristen made an official statement to PEOPLE magazine stating, “We want to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers during this very difficult time. We have just been informed by the authorities my brother’s body has been found.” “This is a very painful time and we are still processing it all. We kindly ask everyone please respect our privacy during our time of grieving.”
Cause related to the disappearance
After finding Michael’s body, officials stated they do not believe that there was any foul play. No drugs or alcohol were found in the car, or surrounding the area where they located the body. Sources believe that Michael died due to extreme cold weather conditions. An official autopsy will be completed to help determine the exact cause of death. Many people who talked to Michael before his disappearance believed that he suffered from extreme paranoia, which might have played a role in why he abandoned his vehicle, and was roaming the Utah area. He was having delusional thoughts and might have imagined that somebody was out to get him. No comment has been made by his family regarding his mental stability before his death.
Tragic events happen like this all the time, and this strange event played a huge role in the media because it was the family member of a famous reality star and NFL starting quarterback. Hopefully new insights into Michael’s state of mind before his death will educate others who have a family member who might be going through something similar.
