Rashaan Salaam died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. His death was ruled a suicide, the Boulder County Coroner's Office said Thursday following an autopsy.
Alaji said Salaam showed signs of memory loss and depression. "I guarantee they'd find it (if they examined Salaam's brain)" Alaji told USA Today. "I would guarantee it."
When Salaam’s name was finally called, the Dal Ward Center erupted. Then Salaam stepped to the podium. What he said surprised his teammates.
The body found in a Boulder park Monday night was former Colorado football star Rashaan Salaam, the Boulder County coroner said Tuesday.
