Former NFL Player Stanley Wilson Jr.’s Cause of Death Revealed in Autopsy Report

Former NFL player Stanley Wilson Jr’s cause of death has been revealed in an autopsy report. The 40-year-old former Detroit Lions cornerback passed away due to pulmonary thromboembolism, which is a blood clot that blocks blood flow to an artery in the lung. This natural cause of death was determined by officials who conducted the autopsy.

Wilson’s death occurred on February 1 at the Metropolitan State Hospital, a state-run mental health institution. The circumstances surrounding his collapse and subsequent death raised questions among his family, leading them to hire attorney John C Carpenter. Carpenter alleged that Wilson was a victim of excessive force, pointing to injuries on Wilson’s head and wrists that were consistent with being kicked or stomped on. However, the autopsy report did not support these claims.

Wilson Jr.’s grieving mother Dr. D. Pulane Lucas said that county officials had told her that her son had collapsed and fallen out of a chair while going through the intake process at Metropolitan State Hospital before he died.

‘We just want the truth,’ Wilson Jr.’s father, Wilson Sr. said at the time. ‘It hurts really bad to bury your child.’

According to the medical report, Wilson had “superficial” abrasions on his forehead, right hand, and right knee. The report also detailed the events leading up to Wilson’s collapse. He had been residing in a pre-screening area of the hospital and had expressed feelings of anxiety to the doctors nearby. Shortly after making these complaints, Wilson collapsed, and medical professionals in the vicinity tried to revive him but were unsuccessful.

It is worth noting that Wilson had faced legal troubles prior to his passing. He was charged with felony counts of vandalism and second-degree burglary after breaking into a mansion in Hollywood Hills. Due to being deemed unfit to stand trial, he was transferred to the mental facility where he ultimately passed away.

The autopsy report provides a clearer understanding of the cause of Wilson’s death, attributing it to pulmonary thromboembolism. While his family had initially raised concerns about excessive force, the medical findings did not support those claims. Wilson’s passing is a tragic loss for his loved ones and the NFL community, highlighting the importance of mental health and the need for proper care and support.
