An autopsy report was released Wednesday about the death of former bear Dave Duerson.

The report reveals Duerson had carefully laid out documents on the dining room table and on his bed at his Florida condo. He placed framed certificates, medals, and a folded American flag at the head of his bed.

The 50-year-old shot himself with a 38 Special while in bed last month.

Duerson played with the 1985 Super Bowl Champion Bears. He asked that his brain be donated for research to see if he had a disorder related to playing-time concussions.
