“It’s like a series of battles and quests. Once you’re done with them, then what? … I look for the next thing, every time.”

Thomas said:

“This is a young man … that had a pretty rugged sports career and took a lot of injuries in his career.”

Mirra “put his body out there” for years. “You have to give pause, and think and wonder, just as we hear about in brain trauma in football and other sports and activities, whether that played a factor. I don’t know that that’s the case.”

The BMX star was discovered by police in a truck in North Carolina with what appeared to be a self inflicted gunshot wound. It was also reported by multiple outlets that claim Mira, who had a wife and two children, was visiting the area to see friends at the time of his death.
