The Dave Duerson suicide gets more disturbing with each subsequent piece of news that emerges about the incident that ended his life.

First, there was the actual suicide. Then, there was the news that he purposely shot himself in the chest so he could donate his intact brain to science for the study of chronic traumatic encephalopathy. And then the news that he was bankrupt and that he had begun to have problems with his memory.

Today, it gets even more disturbing.

In a Miami New Times article, the paper reports the minute details of Duerson’s suicide from the autopsy report.

Before shooting himself, Duerson had propped a chair against the front door of his apartment and laid out documents on the dining room table. According to the story, he also placed “two framed certificates, framed medals, and a folded American flag at the head of the bed. Naked except for a gold necklace, he climbed into bed and pulled a green sheet up to his neck.”

Then, he held a .38 Special in his left hand and shot himself in the chest, with the bullet lodging in his right lung.

But like this whole ordeal, the report is disturbing.

MLBRocks, consider the creatures here who offend you (and decency.) Whose purpose do they serve? Note that their pride in their own cleverness at "stirring the nest" marks them with the signal vice of their Master. Feel their glee at your horror and consternation. Whereof this foul emotion of theirs? That Master, they imagine, will give them bonus points for driving men like you to rage, perhaps even despair and despond at the state of the world and men's souls. 
Acknowledge their befouled condition. Reject their siren songs. It is HIM at Whom their anger is intended.

I cant believe the vitriol thats being thrown about here. The man was in so much emotional pain, he killed himself. He didnt kill a bunch of innocent people in the process, just himself.
I feel bad that he didnt try to get himself some help. I cant pretend that I can understand why he did it, and MY understanding really doesnt matter. All that matters is that he felt there was no better option available. Its sad and I feel bad for his family-they're the ones left with the pieces to pick up.

Really, between some of these comments and the ones being left under the story on Chuck Bednarik's failing health, I'm really doubting the mental capacity of a lot of people who visit this website.
Some of the most cruel, thoughtless and heartless commentaries I've seen anywhere-and this is a SPORTS site!!! Some people need to realize, we're still talking about human beings here.
