Aaron Hernandez’s Family Plans To Donate His Brain For CTE Study


Just 24 hours after former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was found in his jail cell hanging from a bed sheet, his family has decided to donate his brain to science.

“Per Emily Riemer of WCVB 5, Hernandez’s family is donating his brain, which will be studied at Boston University by researchers who are working on the degenerative brain condition.”

Also according to Riemer, Hernandez’s attorney Jose Baez “says the Boston Medical Examiner’s office is holding his brain illegally” and has yet to relinquish it to researchers.
