A BRAIN disease caused by blows to the head has been blamed for a string of massacres in which athletes 'snap' and go on murderous rampages. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is caused by repeated traumatic head injuries and has been found in former NFL stars and wrestlers who have committed murder. WWE wrestler Chris Benoit, who slaughtered his wife and son, and footballer Aaron Hernandez, who executed his friend, both suffered from the disease. In the case of Hernandez, he displayed increasingly paranoid and aggressive behaviour and was also accused of two other murders despite being a millionaire athlete. OJ Simpson, accused and acquitted of double homicide, says he believes he has brain trauma from his NFL career.

The footballer-turned-actor was jailed for kidnapping and robbery in 2007. … [Read more...] about Phillip Adams – Horror CTE brain disease blamed for slew of shootings by stars as concussions ‘turned them into killers’
