Aaron Hernandez Kills Himself in Prison
21 April 2017, 02:38 | Rodolfo Wallace
Aaron Hernandez was serving a life sentence in prison
He was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole after being found guilty of the 2013 shooting of Odin Lloyd, who had been dating the sister of Hernandez' fiancee Shayanna Jenkins at the time of murder. The former University of Florida and New England Patriots star tight end had been serving a life sentence for the 2013 slaying of a onetime friend.
Massachusetts State Police has now launched an investigation into the suicide at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Centre in the town of Shirley.
Hernandez's death comes on the same day that the Patriots are visiting the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl LI victory. And while the investigation into Hernandez's death is ongoing, law-enforcement officials are looking into whether Hernandez smoked a synthetic marijuana known as K2 just hours before he died, according to the report.
He issued a statement Wednesday saying that Hernandez's family and legal team are "shocked and surprised" at the news of his death.
Still, he was a productive tight end for the Patriots for three seasons.
Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez's early Wednesday, April 19 suicide means the 27-year-old died an "innocent man" in the Commonwealth of MA thanks to an archaic English common law.
Hernandez apparently jammed the door to prevent officers from entering, didn't leave a suicide note and wasn't on suicide watch because he didn't appear to be at risk, according to prison officials.
Guards found Hernandez shortly after 3 a.m. Wednesday, Correction Department spokesman Christopher Fallon said. But for what it's worth, Lloyd's family still has a civil suit against Hernandez pending, so any money the Hernandez estate potentially receives might not stay with the estate for very long. Today my heart hurts as I got the worse news I could have imagined.
In 2012, when he was 22, Aaron Hernandez signed a record $40 million contract with the Patriots.
Life-saving techniques were attempted on Hernandez and he was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead at 4.07am, its statement added.
John Salvi, who was convicted of killing two abortion clinic workers and wounding five other people during a shooting rampage in Brookline in 1994, also had his convictions tossed after he killed himself in prison. It has been noted previously that Hernandez routinely read the Bible with Urban Meyer every morning during his Gators career.
