Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez, who killed himself in prison last spring, had a “severe case” of the brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a lawyer said on yesterday, as he sued the team and NFL on behalf of the athlete’s young daughter. Hernandez was a rising star in the National Football League when he was arrested in 2013 and charged with murdering an acquaintance. He was convicted of that killing but was acquitted earlier this year of gunning down two men outside a Boston nightclub in 2012. Days later, he hanged himself in a Massachusetts prison. His death so soon after a legal win stunned fans and his family, who asked that the brain of the 27-year-old former athlete be tested for CTE, which is linked to the sort of repeated head traumas common in football and can lead to aggression and dementia. Researchers at Boston University, the leading center studying CTE, found pronounced signs the disease in Hernandez’s brain. “It was the most severe case they had ever seen,” said attorney Jose Baez, who successfully defended Hernandez in the double-murder case this year. “It was an advanced stage.”
