It's pretty long, but Deadspin dug up a 2001 GQ article about the story of the Rae Carruth murder case, and they threw in some observations of the article now that it's 2013.

 

Reading the article, Carruth really seems more clinically insane than even I had thought when the case was actually happening.

Logged on to deadspin, one of the most popular sports websites on the internet, and saw a former Panther player with a large picture on front page. Read article and proceeded to post it on the Panthers fansite.

 

Makes sense to me.

if you didn't realize he was clinically insane before reading that article than i don't know what to tell you. it's a sensitive subject about the worst crime an NFL player has ever committed. And he was a Panther. Of course people on this board are going to react disdainfully.

Didn't say I didn't think he was clinically insane, I said after reading the article and learning more things about him than I'd known (such as direct quotes from conversations from his girlfriend that I knew about, but didn't know she was interviewed by the media), he was worse than even I'd thought. The gist of what I was saying was that he was crazy, but after reading about it more in depth, it really hit home.

 

I don't care if people react disdainfully, it's expected in the offseason on this board..I've been here long enough to know that. Article is still interesting, however.

It still bothers me that he'll ever be free, though.

Well technically if he was clinically insane he would have been sentenced accordingly.

technically "clinically insane" doesn't exist. i was just going off the OP.

 

legally insane is what you are refering to.
