Lawrence Phillips was found with 'Do Not Resuscitate' note



Thank you for posting this.

I would want to know if he had CTE. But it also seemed that his behavior was controversial in Nebraska too, although I remember a CTE case being reported on a deceased college football player.


I feel sad whenever I hear a story of someone’s suicide. He must have been experiencing tremendous suffering, emotional if not physical or mental. I imagine prison is not a good environment for dealing with such stress.

CTE = Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy?

Might that have explained the violent behavior which led to his imprisonment?
