Demaryius Thomas died of “complications of a seizure disorder”, an autopsy report revealed.

Thomas was found dead in his Georgia home on December 9, 2021, at the age of 33. The former Broncos and Patriots wide receiver suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), Boston University researchers told ABC News last month.

The medical examiner said he was unsure whether the seizure disorder stemmed from natural causes or impacts to his head during his football career.

Family members and former teammates noted at the time that he suffered from seizures in the months leading up to his death.

He had traces of nicotine and marijuana in his system at the time of his death, but neither was listed as a contributing factor.
