There's a new day that she cited to donate her brain to research for more on that we're gonna go to our colleague from the medical unit Dan Childs who joins us here in the newsroom and had to go hey good afternoon are you and academic. Pulled a chair at her I think anorexia. The spat at the private chat show this. News in the sports world rights and major soccer player has decided to donate her brain tells little bit more about why and we'll what's really interesting is that we often think about chronic traumatic encephalopathy is being related to things like. Football and boxing honestly don't aren't there at a ETE Friday there until as a refrigerant blank sheet so we think about these. Boards where where concussions are very likely what we don't often think about is soccer where your often hitting the ball with your head. And you know these can I d.'s these curves like things that aren't quite concussions but they can still sort of route you bring a little bit and now there's more and more evidence that may be this this is connected suited to soccer as well says this is actually a big deal then. She's offering to donate her brains the researchers and university so after after her death they can take a look at it and maybe understand more about decide disease which right now remains quite a series. Is history we talked a lot more about talk about football frightening. In a felony injury people suffered over the long term Palomar. Athletes' commencing that would with their own kids play football but now it looks like soccer. Could also be something people look at marquis and think about how many kids are playing soccer and right now the only things that we don't really understand about this. About this particular disease for example. How many concussions does it take my how many overcome costs of its does it take. I eat it doesn't matter if you get exposed earlier or later I mean these are all big questions that probably a lot of parents are thinking about he and hopefully that will be answered but for the research. Colonel all right well they Nico Pitney McGrady chest pain now. Donating her brain injury or asked and answers along like think heated eight thank you so much time. For more on that of course go to abcnews.com. A couple coverage on that story and it'll be following for us. Right up to our next moving through the newsroom here burning go back. It is 62 record entertainer where's Mike Rothman in January Kenzie for the latest story you've been following a well agree you're not gonna remember back. January 2015 the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown Bobbi Christina Graham was found unresponsive. In her home in Atlanta and later time in July there's been a lot of questions and then about how exactly. And today we're getting some answers for desperate times for more on this we're gonna turn it over to Mike her hey holly has it going now officer can assume it appear. Yes Katrina and weird thing that's got into slogans at any. So toxic Alan Adler and so are well I think. You brought up. Without even knowing it in early ironies that should start in January. And then died later in July rights issues in a coma her what 44 or five months there's a long time. This will come into play today at the Fulton County county medical examiner. Release are autopsy took awhile to get released because. I think certain parties in one it they want to express it. It's out now. There's a couple things that that are striking from it aid they bring up the fact that it that she would. Unresponsive for so long to do that makes things a little shaken something definitive is that the cause of death. But they do. Eight I think it's called Lavar pneumonia. Which a couple from one ops she sound and in her Tug program. And then all so. That pregnant from a lack of auctions of the brain. But what streaking in and I think. It's been stricken does not striking blow is no drugs in her system and that nixed the drugs are system I think popular upstate. Talking about that today a there was a cocaine related and there was marijuana. Their lives morphine which may or may not being related to apparel and and I think there is anxiety medication so. I've got crazy cocktail of drugs. Really really a sad story. Nothing definitive on on the manner in which she died en route. A question observing and buying this and you know was it an accidental death was intentional anyway and from the results of these records we still can't see that definitive. Perhaps there's an there's nothing definitive. We know. I guess he's believed. To cut the contributing factors in other drugs. It. If you don't diminish its founding of the down and it's. Chris insane act. But that we don't know the circumstances. For the day that if the floor. I mean this past stories have been coming as her instead about a year. You know her partner's. Mother.

An emotional and his family. And he's really sad that these findings certainly and they haven't found himself to attack humans when of the Stanley truly believes that. It's that the criminal homage. Investigation and I shouldn't be happening and I'm. Hey I gotta let me read I heard that with my reading about it I and he was saying that the family members.
