Dammion didn’t exhibit traditional signs of suicidal behavior. But when his case is viewed with hindsight, are there clues that could help explain Dammion’s altered state of mind? We explore similar cases of athletes with both diagnosed and undiagnosed cases of CTE and speak with experts on the effects of traumatic brain injuries and their correlation with suicide. We also hear from new witnesses and friends of Dammion, including the person who sold him acid the night he disappeared. Are the questions in Dammion’s case explained by a CTE/suicide theory, or are the facts more in line with a foul play scenario?

I am not really sure why everyone keeps saying he, "was such a nice guy." He goes around picking fights with people. How nice is that?!
