Lawyer: Aaron Hernandez family wants his brain examined

Share

In Dorchester, the Boston neighborhood where Lloyd grew up, a family friend of the Lloyds wondered if the weight of Hernandez's crimes - and of great potential squandered - had finally caught up with him.

Aaron Hernandez, former New England Patriots football player, was found hanged to death in his prison cell in MA early today, the State Corrections Department reports. He says a judge has already found Hernandez liable in Lloyd's death, now it's just a question of setting a dollar amount, and getting that money from the Hernandez estate. As another legal expert explained previously, Hernandez's death triggered a legal principle in MA called "abatement ab initio", which means that if a person dies before exhausting all legal appeals, the case reverts to its earliest state.

According to Martin W. Healy, chief legal counsel to the Massachusetts Bar Association, Hernandez's death could mean his 2015 conviction is vacated, since the former footballer had appealed the ruling on the 2013 killing of Lloyd.

He was a productive tight end for the Patriots for three seasons, catching 79 passes for 910 yards and seven touchdowns in his second year to help the team reach the Super Bowl. Baden, who didn't immediately comment, has performed autopsies in numerous high-profile cases, including the death of Michael Brown, the black 18-year-old who was shot and killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus start at a price of £689 ($854), which increases to £779 ($965) for the Galaxy S8 Plus. Samsung may face hurdles in meeting stronger than expected demand for the new smartphones.

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.

Hernandez was found hanging in his cell in Shirley's Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center early Tuesday morning, authorities said.

Department of Correction spokesman Christopher Fallon stressed the investigation is ongoing and officials had been unaware of Hernandez' suicidal thoughts. The Correction Department hasn't shared the incident report, officers' logs or video footage from Hernandez's cell. He was cut by the team in 2013 after he was arrested in the Lloyd murder. It was put on the market for $1.5 million in March 2016, but the price has since dropped to $1.3 million.

"Here's the one thing you have to understand", he said. The Internal Revenue Service has a $117,395 tax lien on the property. He was 27 years old. Hernandez's body was taken to a funeral home in Watertown, Mass., but the owner told the Boston Globe that there were no plans to hold the funeral there.

Aaron Hernandez's death in prison - just days after the former National Football League star was cleared of additional murder charges - remains shrouded in mystery.

"When the verdict was said, a lot of people were emotional, and I looked over and I thought he was crying tears of joy", said Monroe, who sat on the Suffolk County jury that acquitted Hernandez in the murders of Daniel de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28.

Hernandez's death occurred the same day the Patriots visit the White House to mark their remarkable win in February's Super Bowl.
