Chris Benoit’s father Michael appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” this morning and shed new light on his son’s final days.

Tests of Chris Benoit’s brain tissue revealed that Chris had severe brain damage. The level of brain damage Chris had was equivalent to an 85-year-old Alzheimer’s patient – and similar to three NFL players who committed suicide. There were abnormal protein deposits in the brain caused by trauma to Benoit’s head.

Chris’ brain tissue was tested at the request of his father, Michael Benoit. Michael Benoit says that he agreed to have his son’s brain tested because he found a recent diary his son wrote that indicated he was “extremely disturbed”.

Severe brain damage can lead to depression and irrational, violent behavior.
