TMZ Sports reported that Butler lost control of his Range Rover, hitting a parking meter before slamming into a wall and flipping the vehicle at about 2 a.m. She was later named as his wife, Leah LaBelle, by Butler's former team the Miami Heat. He spent three seasons with the Heat mostly playing off the bench before he was traded to the then-New Orleans Hornets in the largest trade in National Basketball Association history. The spokesman said investigators estimate the auto was moving at a speed of 60 miles per hour to 90 miles per hour at the time of the crash.
"Our entire organization is deeply saddened after learning of the death of Rasual Butler and his wife, Leah LaBelle", Pacers President Kevin Pritchard said in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families of Rasual and his wife, Leah". "They will be missed".
She was on the third season of "American Idol" in 2004 where she finished 12th in the contest. He averaged just under seven points a game while playing in 182 games over three seasons before being traded in the summer of 2005.
Last summer, he played in the inaugural season of the BIG3 basketball league.
