In Midst of Junior Seau’s Death, Continued Calls on Sports-Related Head Trauma. Seau, a former Patriots linebacker many regarded as the heart and soul of the team, was found dead yesterday in his Oceanside, Calif., from a gunshot wound to his chest. Seau’s death is being investigated as a suicide, and his brain will likely end up in the hands of researchers. But as USA Today columnist Mike Lopresti points out, it was a year ago yesterday that BU researchers released a report on NFL safety Dave Duerson, who seemingly faced an eerily similar fate as Seau — and who left a note asking that his brain be studied so people could understand what he was going through. Although the rallying cries against Roger Goodell, the NFL, anyone, are strong, let’s hope that the work being done at BU, which has extended from the NFL to the NHL to high school football, isn’t for nothing.
