Authorities in Massachusetts say Aaron Hernandezís brain is being turned over to university researchers now that theyíve ruled his death in prison a suicide.https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/the-latest-lawyer-hernandez-talked-to-fiancee-before-death/2017/04/20/f30007e6-25e2-11e7-928e-3624539060e8_story.html?utm_term=.a7b63ad4a55c
An Autopsy found symptoms of CTE in Chris Beniot's brain(the Pro Wrester who committed a double murder/suicide against his wife and son). CTE may have also been a factor in Junior Seau's suicide as doctors found evidence of it in his brain after Seau's autopsy.
And there have been other cases.
You can well imagine why Hernandez's family wants a CTE scan of his brain. The idea that his behavior might have
been the result of traumatic brain damage is as close to vindication on his behalf as they are going get.
And they would have one hell of a liability case against the Patriots and the NFL on top of that.
The NFL's known how horrible these kind of injuries can be and has done as little as they could get away with about it.
