Hernandez Attorney Confirm Client Had CTE At Time of Suicide

According to attorney Jose Baez, his client Aaron Hernandez had chronic traumatic encephalopathy, more commonly known as CTE.

Hernandez is a former NFL star who played for the New England Patriots and was a standout collegiate player at the University of Florida.

According to a statement from Boston University that Hernandez’s brain was examined by Dr. Ann McKee, director of the BU CTE Center. The disease has symptoms similar to Alzheimer’s, including memory loss, confusion, aggression, rage and at times, suicidal behaviour. It is believed that repeated trauma to the head leads to CTE.

The disease is believed to have four stages with Hernandez being found to be in stage three of CTE. The third stage is commonly associated with memory loss, behavioural changes and impaired judgment. It is also believed that Hernandez’s brain showed early signs of degeneration of brain cells and large tears in the septum pellucidum, a central membrane of the brain.

The findings from the initial examination were confirmed by a second neuropathologist at Boston University.

CTE can be diagnosed only after death. Researchers are working on ways to detect it in the living with the hope of being able to treat it in the future.

Hernandez hanged himself in prison in April at the age of 27.



I understand the families frustrations but he still murdered someone, played football just fine, had millions of dollars and everything was just fine. Now that they have a little thread of hope it was because of football but what about all his highschool days, college football days? It isn't just because of the NFL. Blame it on the sport and playing it his whole life if you want to blame it on something. He is still a murderer and there is no excuse for that.


This is pretty bad news for the NFL and other sports with severe concussion risks (and the military....), participation will decrease in the long term if no solution/better measures to prevent it are taken

If you’ve got nothing better to do. OK, so maybe even if you do. Wouldn’t you rather talk sports, post pics of games, solve sports quizzes, and redeem loyalty points for free stuff? Of course you do. And why wouldn’t you! Your mother-in-law will get over that nasty fall. The garbage? You get used to the smell. If you’ve got the time, fansfrenzy is the place to waste it.
