After murder conviction and suicide, Aaron Hernandez found to have severe CTE

Former New England Patriots' tight end Aaron Hernandez had a severe case of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease associated with repeated head trauma. The finding was announced today in a press conference held by his lawyer, according to the New York Times.

CTE leads to progressive cognitive impairment and behavioral regulation problems—and it has notably been linked to depression, suicide, and impulsive and violent behavior.

 

Hernandez committed suicide in April while serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of his friend. He was 27.

Dr. Ann McKee, chief of neuropathology at the VA Boston Healthcare System and director of the CTE Center at Boston University, examined Hernandez’s brain and made the CTE determination.

According to Jose Baez, Hernandez’s lawyer, Hernandez’s CTE was “the most severe case they had ever seen in someone of Aaron’s age.” The level of damage was said to be similar to that seen in football players with a median age of 67.

s the New York Times notes, Hernandez is just the latest player who committed suicide and was later found to have CTE, which is only diagnosed after death. Other players include Dave Duerson, Junior Seau, Andre Waters, Ray Easterling, and Jovan Belcher. Duerson and Seau committed suicide by shooting themselves in the chest, an apparent effort to ensure that researchers could examine their brains afterward. Hernandez hanged himself in his prison cell.

 

A string of other young football players have decided to retire early from professional play out of concern for developing CTE. That includes former Bengals' and Browns

....

More fuel for the fire.

I've had at least 4 concussions that I know of and haven't murdered anyone ... yet. Just call me "the fire extinguisher."

Didn't Mr. Baez imply that Mr. Hernandez's death may not have been a suicide not long after it happened but now he is claiming that Mr. Hernandez committed suicide because of CTE and is suing the NFL and the Patriots on behalf of Mr. Hernandez's daughter?

 

For the legal scholars out there: Assuming Mr. Baez is able to get a monetary sum out of the NFL and/or the Patriots for Mr. Hernandez's daughter, would any of that money be "eligible" in a civil suit brought on by the families of Mr. Hernandez's victims?

Not likely, if the money were to go directly to the daughter. If, on the other hand, it were to go to "the estate of Aaron Hernandez," then it would be available to the estate's creditors. Problem is, I'm sure the civil statute of limitations for claims against Hernandez has long since expired.
