Seau died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his chest on Wednesday at his Oceanside, Calif., home. He was 43. The medical examiner officially declared Seau's death a suicide.Chicago Bears defensive back Dave Duerson died similarly last year, and researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine determined that Duerson suffered from a neurodegenerative condition linked to concussions that led to his depression and ultimately played a role in his death.
