Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy - Ctd

Boston University is reporting that former NFL player Dave Duerson, who commit suicide in February at age 50, had indisputable evidence of CTE. Duerson's case is unique, if not a little bizarre, in that he shot himself in the chest in order to preserve his brain for scientific inquiry; a suicide note directed that his brain be studied at BU. He played in the NFL for 11 years. The story can be found in detail here.
