NFL player Phillip Adams murders Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70; his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69; their two grandchildren, and James Lewis, 39, who was working at the home when he was struck by gunfire. Adams was a former patient and his parents lived near by.

Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70, and his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69, were pronounced dead at the scene along with grandchildren Adah Lesslie, 9, and Noah Lesslie, 5.

Dr. Lesslie had worked for decades as an ER doctor in Rock Hill, board-certified in both emergency medicine and occupational medicine and serving as ER medical director for nearly 15 years at Rock Hill General Hospital. He went on to found two urgent care centers in the area and wrote a weekly medical column for The Charlotte Observer. He also wrote a book, “Angels in the ER,” collecting what he termed “inspiring true stories” from his time in the emergency department.

“I know without a doubt that life is fragile,” Lesslie wrote, according to an excerpt. “I have come to understand that humility may be the greatest virtue. And I am convinced we need to take the time to say the things we deeply feel to the people we deeply care about.”

There seems to be a media black-out on this story and I can't imagine why. Some MSN's are not even reporting this horrific murder, while other do report, but leave out the suspect.
I find that suspicious in it's self.

Why? What is rest of the story?

Found the story. Sounds like Dr. may have treated him. He was a former player, so I bet CTE was probably involved.

Yeah, as edumakated said, why?

Your missing a link.

Because this is very sad, and I am curious about motive.

No motive suggested in the AP article.
Killer was a patient at one time.
Killer's parents lived nearby.

My guess is he was being prescribed opioids, the doctor refused to refill and he went off.

Just a guess, though.

If I had to venture a guess, I would say this is a result of years of playing football/CTE... sadly, we have seen similar issues with players after their playing days.. CTE is a scary thing.. I wrote a college paper on CTE/Athletes a good decade ago.. It was very eye opening when i was conducting my research.

Easier to go doctor shopping. Most likely CTE as someone else already mentioned.

Unfortunately, this story will not get much attention in the MSM.

I've had some of my post's trashed, that I spent a lot of time working on. So I'm a little edgy on giving my snarky opinion, and leaving any links (that would violate T&C).
I'll give you that facts, and you can decide to look them up.

This story really needs more details. I got a ding on my phone earlier about this but not much is known.

My question to you is why go straight to opioids?

CTE is the medical term for brain damage from repeated blows/concussions to the head. It is common in football players and boxers. Although some other sports (extreme sports, wrestling) have sufferers as well. Basically any sport where you are likely to get knocked up side the head frequently.

It seems one of the common results is depression / suicidal tendencies. I don't know if it also from other drugs, but there have been a number of high profile athlete suicides / murders over the years.

Important we all focus on CTE as the cause.

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy

Oh yes, we call it tauopathies. We also know it as TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

However, there are thousands of patients that have had a TBI or CTE, and don't go around murdering entire families.
