Dr. Omalu: 'No Question' CTE Drove Aaron Hernandez to Suicide

EXCLUSIVE

Dr. Bennet Omalu — the man who discovered CTE — tells TMZ Sports, “There is no question in my mind that CTE drove Aaron Hernandez to suicide and other criminal and violent behavior.”

FYI, Dr. Omalu is the real-life doctor who inspired the Will Smith movie, “Concussion.” 

We reached out to Omalu after Hernandez’s fiancee filed her lawsuit against the NFL and the New England Patriots — claiming the league failed to share information connecting CTE and suicidal tendencies. 

Omalu believes she absolutely has a case — and hopes Aaron’s story will inspire parents to pull their kids out of contact sports.
