Aaron Hernandez Had Severe Case Of CTE

A study into the brain of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez showed severe signs of a degenerative brain disease.
On Thursday, reports surfaced that tests showed Hernandez’s brain had serious signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Hernandez committed suicide earlier this year at the age of 27.
According to the report, the signs of CTE in Hernandez’s brain were unlike anything doctors had seen before.
The progression of CTE in Hernandez’s brain resembled what is usually observed in players 67 years old.
“We’re told it was the most severe case they had ever seen for someone of Aaron’s age,” Hernandez’s attorney Jose Baez said at a press conference.
Hernandez’s brain was studied at the CTE Center at Boston University. According to Dr. Ann McKee, who evaluated the results, Hernandez had stage 3 or stage 4 of the disease, which was one of the most severe cases for a man of Hernandez’s age.
Following the findings of Hernandez’s brain study, his family has opened a federal lawsuit against the NFL and New England Patriots.
The family is seeking $20 million in damages on behalf of Hernandez’s daughter, Avielle.
