'No indication' of depression during one of Seau's final interviews

One of Junior Seau's last public appearances was at a kids charity golf tournament in Dana Point, California on Monday, where he signed autographs and talked with fans.

Tim Abell and David Biber were at the event with the former football star and Abell had the opportunity to conduct one of Seau's final interviews.

Abell tells Soledad O'Brien on Starting Point today that he was "shocked" when he heard about Seau's suicide because the NFL legend showed "no indication" of depression at the event.

Biber, a friend of Seau's who is involved with the charity, also says that he was shocked by the news of Seau's death, telling Soledad that Seau "seemed to be in a very good mood" on Monday and that he was "lighthearted" while playing with children and taking pictures with fans.
