Associated Press FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas senior middle linebacker Shannon Wright, who had an up- and-down college career, apparently killed himself early Wednesday, authorities said. Wright, 22, was a two-year let- tennan for the Razorbacks and had started all six games this year. He was one of the leading tacklers on the team with 19 unassisted tackles and 25 assists. "It's shocking to everyone associated with Shannon," Arkansas coach Danny Ford said. "He has been a tremendous fighter and, as coaches, we thought he was in a great frame of mind. From our perspective, everything about Shannon Wright has been very positive. He was the most well-liked and respected player on our team by his teammates and coaches. "Our greatest concern is for his mother, his brother, his grandfather and his entire family," Ford said. Police Chief Richard Watson said officers received a 911 call at 6:09 a.m. to a residence in Fayetteville. Watson said Wright was "found outside the residence behind the wheel of a vehicle in the driveway" with "what appears to be a self- inflicted gunshot wound to the head." Watson said friends of Wright lived at the residence and that he might have stayed there when Wright wasn't at the athletic dorm. "At this point, there is no evidence of foul play," Watson said. "We are following up." A .22-caliber pistol v/as recovered from the vehicle, police said. Football practice was to be closed this afternoon and the players are off-limits to the media for the remainder of the week Ford and a player he chooses will meet with the media after practice this afternoon. Wright, fresh from Fort Smith Southside High School, played quite a bit for the 1989 Razorback team that went to the Cotton Bowl. He made 36 unassisted tackles and 17 assists that year. Wright ran into discipline problems and didn't finish the 1990 season. He sat out the 1991 season but was allowed to return last year and was used in a backup role. Prior to the season, he talked openly about his battles with booze. "It's never going to be perfect," Wright said. "I can't tell you today that nothing's going to happen from here on out. I'm trying to be as consistent as I can be and take it a day at a time." He said he did not know how to handle his early success. He said some people can handle the alcohol and others can't. that important to me." "I couldn't handle it," he said. In 1990, Wright was arrested in "Nobody likes to think they can't the theft of several cans of beer handle anything. Now, looking back from a convenience store in his on it, if s not that big a deal.

Seles stabber set free Associated Press HAMBURG, Germany—A tennis fan who stabbed Monica Seles out of an obsessive love for her rival, Steffi Graf, walked away free Wednesday when the court that convicted him gave him a suspended two-year sentence. Guenter Parche, 39, an unemployed East German who had been detained since the April 30 attack at a Hamburg tournament, could have received a three-year, nine- month jail term. But Hamburg District Judge Elke Bosse said she took into account a psychiatrist's testimony that Parche had a "highly abnormal personality" that could have diminished his ability to reason. She noted that Parche had shown remorse for his attack on the world's top-ranked woman player, and that "His confession was absolutely believable." Seles and others in tennis were outraged over the decision. "I was shocked and horrified to learn that the assassin who stabbed me received a suspended sentence in Germany today," Seles said in a statement released by spokeswoman Linda Dozoretz. "What kind of message does this send to the world? Mr. Parche has admitted that he stalked me, then he stabbed me once and attempted to stab me a second time. And, now, the court has said he does not have to go to jail for this premeditated crime. He gets to go back to his life, but I can't because I am still recovering from this attack which would have killed me. "Because I still cannot play tennis, I am not traveling now; but I fear for my fellow athletes, public figures and other potential victims of senseless crimes who have to go out today and tomorrow, knowing that a criminal who commits such an act will not be punished." Martina Navratilova, another former No. 1 player, was similarly shocked by the ruling. "You guys need some serious help with the laws here in Germany," she said at a tennis match in Pilderstadt. "Forget the fact it was Monica Seles, it has cost her millions of dollars, and it was done on television. "When one human being can stab another with the intent of seriously injuring him, and they walk away, then there is something wrong with the law," she said. Seles' lawyer, Gerhard Strate, said he probably would appeal the sentence. Parche plunged a kitchen knife into Seles' back while she sat at courtside during a pause between games, saying he hoped to sideline her long enough to allow Graf to regain the No. 1 ranking — which she did.
