Lawyer: Aaron Hernandez Had 'Severe' Case Of CTE

Attorneys who represented Aaron Hernandez in his double-murder trial will announce today the results of a study performed on the former New England Patriot's brain after his jailhouse suicide.

"Aaron Hernandez had an advanced, stage 3 of CTE, which is normally found in the median age of a 67-year-old man", Baez said. Hernandez killed himself in April in the jail cell where he was serving a life-without-parole sentence for a 2013 murder. Obviously it's a stretch to assign blame for all of Hernandez's actions and decisions to the disease, but it's just as much of a stretch to pretend that he was of a functioning mind and body.

Boston University's CTE center on Thursday confirmed that its researchers found that Hernandez's brain showed signs of stage 3 of the disease, with stage 4 being the most severe form.

Hernandez's fiancé, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, filed a lawsuit in MA federal court against the Patriots and the NFL on Thursday, claiming the football organizations knew about the risks of CTE.

In July, researchers at Boston University released results of a study, which showed that they found CTE in the brains of 110 of the 111 former National Football League players they studied.

Man Charged in 1992 Murder of Lisa Ziegert
The money in the store's cash register as well as the victim's purse and school materials appeared undisturbed. State troopers in MA tried to notify Schara about this process last Wednesday, according to Gulluni.

CTE can be caused by repeated head trauma and leads to symptoms like violent mood swings, depression and other cognitive difficulties.

Soon after his prison suicide in April, Hernandez's family decided they wanted his brain to be studied by the Boston University Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Center.

Hernandez blocked access to his cell from the inside by jamming cardboard into the door tracks, investigators said. His name had also come up in an investigation into a shooting.

Hernandez played 38 regular-season games over three seasons for the Patriots.

Per a technicality in MA state law, Hernandez's existing murder conviction was vacated due to him not going through the automatic appeals process that would have confirmed or overturned the 2015 conviction.
