• Brian Christopher’s Death Might Not Be A Suicide (Photo)

A photo of Brian Christopher’s neck has been released and it’s looking like he didn’t hang himself (as originally noted).

Brian’s father, WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler, has been saying from the get-go that he doesn’t believe his son committed suicide.

Below is the photo of Brian’s neck that was released:

Below is what Lawler said after seeing Brian’s neck:

“Just look at his neck and look at his hand. You can see the lines on his neck all the way around here to here and what would be the length of your hand as if he was trying to keep the pressure off. We’ve received literally countless calls, text messages from people, actual eyewitnesses, that were in the jail and saw things that happened on the actual day that Brian died that now has opened up a new can of worms. It just doesn’t seem like it was suicide.”

Below is what Jerry’s lawyer Ted Hansom said:

“I think the pictures indicate something other than someone hanging himself with a shoelace.”

Jerry discussed what exactly happened on the day Brian passed away:

“I talked to Brian Saturday morning 11 o’clock the day he died. He talked perfectly normal, perfectly rational. Lauryn (Jerry’s girlfriend) got a call about 2 in the afternoon that said Brian had been in a fight in the jail. An inmate was actually playing cards with Brian when the altercation happened when Brian got hit.”

Brian was bleeding from the head and was for medical help, but wasn’t given any. Brian was then put in a segregated cell after that fight. Jerry noted that 20 cameras in the jail weren’t working on that day.

Jerry then received a phone call 4-5 hours later that Brian hung himself.

Jerry noted that he’s not giving up on this case until he finds out what exactly happened.
