From 2002 to 2005, Zimmer was a safety for the Trinity University Tigers football team, where he wore #28. The 38-year-old man was found dead at his home in the Twin Cities on Oct. 31, 2022. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the cause of his death in public records released on Friday.
The medical examiner said that Zimmer’s death was caused by “complications of chronic ethanol use disorder.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that about 140,000 people die every year in the United States because they drink too much. This is the most preventable cause of death in the country.
