The details surrounding Dave Duerson's suicide continue to become more disturbing -- it appears that at the time of his death, Duerson had a bankruptcy case pending in Florida.
Chicago Breaking Sports reports Duerson filed for voluntary personal bankruptcy last September in a case that is still pending.
The legal proceedings detail that Duerson had $34.6 million in assets and $14.7 million in liabilities -- however, the majority of his assets were located in a lawsuit (his company Duerson Foods, LLC, won a judgment but apparently hadn't collected) that he won.
Even that money wasn't guaranteed for Duerson, though.
"Debtor's ex-wife is entitled to 30 percent to 50 percent of judgment if collected," the bankruptcy filing showed.
The bankruptcy case also showed that his wife claimed Duerson still owed her $70,000 and that he was "trying to conceal certain assets."
All of these details indicate that while Duerson may have struggled with the mental aspect of post-football-life, he also had some serious personal issues present in his life that may have contributed to his decision to take his own life.
