The prospect of a new trial, Baez said, brought into play what had been an unfathomable scenario - his client someday walking out of prison a free man. Aaron Hernandez, the attorney said, was "one step closer to being reunited with his family".

"Aaron Hernandez's stats described him as a 6'1" tight end for the New England Patriots.

"Aaron was looking forward to an opportunity for a second chance to prove his innocence", Baez said in a statement.

Last Friday, Hernandez wept openly as he was acquitted of earlier Boston murders. "Chico was not a saint, but my family and I loved him and he would never take his own life", wrote Brian Murphy, one of Hernandez's agents.

EARLIER Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez has been found dead in his prison cell, MA officials say.

The late Patriots tight end was found hanging in his cell early Wednesday morning at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass., according the state's Department of Correction.

"Lifesaving techniques were attempted on Mr. Hernandez, and he was transported to UMass Leominster, where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m.", the correction department's statement read.

Hernandez tried to block the cell door from the inside by jamming the door with various items, Fallon said. The Patriots released him nine days after Lloyd's body was found. He said that officials had no concern that Hernandez was planning on taking his own life, and if there was a concern about his well-being, Hernandez would have been transferred to a mental health unit.

Tom Brady will not join his New England Patriots teammates when the Super Bowl champions visit the White House on Wednesday to accept congratulations from President Donald Trump for another National Football League title. But he remained in prison on a life sentence for a 2013 murder. You can put on an act like nothing happened, but you've got a soul. "Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember", Brady said.

"Today my heart hurts as I got the worse news I could have imagined", he said.

Last week, he was acquitted of a drive-by shooting on the south side of Boston that left two men dead. Why now? Why would he kill himself after winning an acquittal in the double homicide? "It's fishy. It makes you wonder what really went on behind those walls in prison".
