This is just improbably sad.
Butler played for the Heat, Hornets, Clippers, Bulls, Raptors, Pacers, Wizards, and Spurs on the court during his professional career, which lasted until 2016. Leah placed 12 th on the third largest season of American Idol in 2004. She was an R& B vocalist signed to Epic Records.
@leahlabelle, your spirit was just as your voice; beautiful. Minutes like these leave us with so many questions. What I don’t topic is how much you desired God, how much you love your life spouse and where you guys are now.

Rasual Butler passing away in a car accident induces me sick. He was full of life and envisioned. He wanted nothing more than to be the best version of himself every day and to be kind to anyone he met
R.I.P to Rasual Butler man, he was good to me and continued it G with me during our time in Minnesota! We lost a good one !!

Saddened by the news and the loss of Rasual Butler and his wife Leah. Talk about a great dude and family man. I know he had many stops during his 13 time NBA expedition, but he was beloved becasue of his project ethic in Indiana. New guardian Angels..

Rasual Butler was always very gracious, very pleasant, and still was in high regard by the Heat — more than a decade after he last played for them.
I’m just sad. No notion what else to say.

Devastating. Hold your loved ones close.
