It's unclear if Foster was still in police custody at the time of his death -- we've reached out to the Pickens County Sheriff's Office for comment, but it said the Alabama State Bureau of Investigation is handling inquiries. Multiple attempts to reach spokespersons for the Alabama SBI have been unsuccessful.

He retired from the league in 2016. I really can’t find the words to properly express 😔. Rest In Peace Glenn Foster, you’ll be missed bro! 🙏🏾💙 — T. Stead 🎤🎧 (@T_Armstead72)
