Aaron Hernandez's brain will be examined for CTE

In this December 12, 2005 photo, Aaron Hernandez poses for a photo in Bristol, Conn. Hernandez, a former National Football League star, who was serving a life sentence for a murder conviction and Friday, April 14, 2017, was acquitted.

Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez spent almost four years in police custody in MA before he was found dead in his prison cell early Wednesday morning.

"Lifesaving techniques were attempted on Mr. Hernandez and he was transported to UMASS Leominster where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m.by a physician at the hospital".

Hernandez had been housed in a single cell in the general population unit at the maximum-security Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.

Baez has said that he doubts the official story of Hernandez death, and will be conducting his own investigation. It came just five days after a jury found him not guilty of a 2012 double homicide in Boston, prompting his lawyers to target an appeal in his previous conviction of the 2013 slaying of Odin L. Lloyd. "We're very lucky that Boston University is right here in our backyard and we want to take full advantage of the resources". "It is extremely important that these protocols are followed", Baez said. "No one is going to stand in the way of the family's wishes for Boston University to have Aaron Hernandez's brain".

Baez said it's too soon to say if Hernandez might have suffered from CTE, and wouldn't answer questions about how many concussions Hernandez might have suffered during his football career.

Baez said officials from the chief medical examiner's office told him they wanted to prepare the brain for study.

His family and legal team were "shocked and surprised" to learn of Aaron's death, his lead attorney, Jose Baez, said in a statement.

"There's no indication he left a suicide note", said Christopher Fallon, a spokesman for the Department of Correction.

Whether he was aware of it or not, Aaron Hernandez may have greatly improved his family's financial situation by committing suicide.

His body was released to a funeral home in Watertown, where an independent autopsy was done at the request of his family. "Aaron Hernandez will go to his death an innocent man".

He died nearly exactly two years after he was sentenced to life without parole for murdering a semi-pro football player in 2013 and five days after he was acquitted of double murder in a separate Boston killing in 2012.

Thompson is also calling for an impartial investigation into Hernandez's death.

One of Aaron Hernandez's lawyers says the ex-NFL star spoke with his fiancee hours before his apparent suicide in prison.

Members of the Patriots are scheduled to be honored at the White House on Wednesday for their Super Bowl LI victory over Atlanta. "I think he was murdered", said Keith Birchall of Woonsocket.
