Former Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas died from "complications of a seizure disorder," according to the Fulton County medical examiner's office in Atlanta.

Thomas was found dead in the shower of his Roswell, Georgia, home on Dec. 9. He was 33 years old. Shortly after his death, the Thomas family issued a statement that he had suffered from recurring seizures since a car crash in 2019, and they believed he died after enduring a seizure.
