Questions abound in aftermath of NFL star Hernandez's death

Share

The news came down today that former New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez committed suicide in his jail cell, just one week after being found not guilty for a double-murder that took place in Boston a few years ago. After officers attempted life-saving procedures, he was rushed to UMass Memorial-HealthAlliance Hospital where he was pronounced dead about an hour later.

In case you forgot, the former New England Patriots tight end was convicted back in 2015 for murdering Odin Lloyd.

Last week, on April 14, a MA jury found the ex-felon of Lloyd and Daniel de Abreu's murder not guilty.

Mr. Hernandez was housed in a single cell in the general prison population, the statement said.

In addition, Hernandez tried to block the door of his cell from inside placing numerous objects.

CNN is reporting the death of Hernandez, 27, comes just days after he was acquitted in a separate murder case.

But a court will vacate that conviction because Hernandez's appeal was pending, said Rosanna Cavallaro, a law professor at Suffolk University who has written about abatement. Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window.

"There was no indication that he was going to do this, as far as I knew, other than such a situation would always put someone at risk", a source close to Hernandez told Radar.

MA state police say they have launched an investigation into former National Football League star Aaron Hernandez's death by hanging in prison. Hernandez's lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment. About six weeks after Furtado and de Abreu were killed, Hernandez signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Patriots and went on to play another season before Lloyd was killed. The team released him in 2013 after he was arrested for killing Lloyd.
