Aaron Hernandez Kills Himself In Prison, Officials Say

Aaron Hernandez Kills Himself In Prison, Officials Say

Hernandez was acquitted Friday in the 2012 double murder that prosecutors said was fuelled by his anger over a spilled drink.

When Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell, he had the citation of a Bible verse written on his forehead, according to multiple reports Wednesday.

On the day he signed his $40 million contract, a gleeful, proud Hernandez said he was "set for life, a good life".

Addressing the victims' families, Ruskin said this apparent suicide isn't likely to bring them any long-term peace.

"Absolutely no chance he took his own life", Murphy tweeted.

But she says the department needs to hire more mental health professionals.

Hernandez's attorneys are promising a separate investigation into his death and a state senator is pointing to a bigger problem in the state's prisons.

Hernandez attorney Jose Baez said the family had arranged for Boston University researchers looking at brain trauma in athletes to take possession of Hernandez's brain following the autopsy.

Chilling new details of Aaron Hernandez' prison death scene will only complicate the investigation into his reported suicide.

Trump targets visa program he says hurts US workers
Whether you're for or against the new executive order , there isn't much that is likely to change in the short term. But the White House says that such exemptions have gone too far and that US contractors are unjustly losing out.

There were signs in one National Football League scouting report before Hernandez was even drafted: "Self-esteem is quite low; not well-adjusted emotionally, not happy, moods unpredictable, not stable, doesn't take much to set him off, but not an especially jumpy guy", the scout wrote in his report.

Why was Hernandez in prison? Notably the strangulation of a convicted pedophile priest by another inmate. He was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A legal technicality redeemed Hernandez, at least for the record, in death.

Authorities say Hernandez was found hanging in his MA prison cell early Wednesday and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Removing a conviction after the death of a high profile defendant has happened before in recent history.

Former Roman Catholic priest John Geoghan's child molestation conviction was vacated after he was beaten to death in his prison cell in 2003. IN MEMORIAM: Celebrities and notable figures who have died recently Authorities said Hernandez had a brief history of fights while in custody.

Healy said the legal rule states that upon a person's death, their case reverts to its initial status - before the trial and conviction - if they haven't exhausted all their appeals.

Hernandez committed suicide on Wednesday morning according to the state corrections department in MA.

"Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window", Fallon said in the statement.

He said the brain was supposed to be picked up at 10 a.m. Thursday, but the medical examiner's office reversed course at the last minute and chose to keep the brain and conduct its own study. The department says corrections officers attempted lifesaving techniques, but to no avail.
