TEXAS — Uche Okafor, a defender on two World Cup teams for Nigeria who later played for the Kansas City Wizards in the U.S., has been found dead in his Dallas-area home, police said Friday. He was 43.

Okafor’s body was discovered Thursday afternoon by his wife in their house in Little Elm, a town about 30 miles northwest of Dallas, Detective Oscar Hinojosa said. The official cause of death was pending.

Police were not describing it as a homicide or a suicide, “we’re just saying it’s a death,” Hinojosa told The Associated Press. A spokesman for the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office said Okafor’s body would be examined Friday.
