Chris Benoit test results show damage

Brain examination results from Chris Benoit came out today and tests performed indicated that there was big damage from repeated concussions and other blows to the head. Similar tests conducted on other five athletes – two of whom committed suicide – showed that Benoit had the highest level of brain damage compared to the other five. These results were presented in New York this morning during a press conference hosted by Dr. Julian Bailes of the Department of Neurosurgery at West Virginia University and Dr. Robert Cantu, the Chief of Neurosurgery Service and Director of Sports Medicine at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA. Dr. Bailes said that considering the amount of brain damage found it was enough to explain the double murder-suicide.
