SJ - December 10, 2021

Reports that former Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas died came out late on Thursday night.  The early reports were not clear on how he died only saying that medical complications stemming from a vehicle crash might have been to blame.

That medical complication might have been seizures.  According to Thomas' first cousin, LaTonya Bonseigneur, he may have had a seizure in the shower that resulted in his untimely death.

From Larry Brown Sports:

LaTonya Bonseigneur, a first cousin who grew up with Thomas and said she was extremely close with him, told The Associated Press early Friday morning that Thomas had been suffering from seizures over the past year. He may have had one while showering before he died.

“He had been suffering from seizures for over a year, and we believe he had a seizure when he was showering,” Bonseigneur said, via ESPN’s Jeff Legwold. “We’re not sure when he died. We just spoke with him yesterday.”

Police did not suspect foul play, and preliminary reports indicated Thomas’ death was releated to a medical issue. Some of Thomas’ former teammates also indicated they were aware of the former wide receiver’s history with seizures.

Thomas was in a car accident in 2019 when he rolled his vehicle.  He was arrested and charged with vehicular assault as a result of that single car accident.  I'm sure we'll get more information on this...
