Aaron Hernandez found with a Bible verse written on his forehead

BOSTON (AP) - 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.

"There were no conversations or correspondence from Aaron to his family or legal team that would have indicated anything like this was possible", said his attorney, Jose Baez.

"Aaron was looking forward to an opportunity for a second chance to prove his innocence", said Baez, who said his firm will do its own probe of his death.

Hernandez, 27, used a bedsheet to hang himself from his cell window yesterday before guards found him about 3:05 a.m.at the Souza-Baranowski Correction Center, prison officials said.

"Life-saving techniques were attempted on Hernandez and he was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead at 4.07am", the Department of Correction's official statement read.

"There's no indication he left a suicide note", Fallon said.

Details of the suicide still are coming to light, but both the Massachusetts State Police and the Worcester Country District Attorney's Office are launching an investigation into Hernandez's death.

August 27, 2012: Hernandez signs a $40 million contract with the Patriots - and immediately donates $50,000 to a Patriots' charity.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski made an impromptu appearance at a White House news conference, poking his head in the door of the briefing room and jokingly asking Press Secretary Sean Spicer whether he needed any help. Hernandez was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Five days ago, Hernandez was acquitted of murder charges in the shooting deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in the South End in July 2012.

Prosecutors said he gunned the two men down after one accidentally spilled a drink on him in a nightclub.

Investigators suggested Hernandez shot Lloyd to keep him quiet about the two earlier killings.

William T. Kennedy, who represents the families of de Abreu and Furtado, said their wrongful-death lawsuits will still go forward, only this time against Hernandez's estate.

"I just think it got to him - the guilt", Mixson Philip said.

But Hernandez got himself to college where so many athletes, let alone young men in general, get into fights and smoke weed.

Hernandez's longtime friend, Miami Dolphin Mike Pouncey, posted on Instagram that he had spoken to Hernandez a day before his death, calling him "my brother".

"Today my heart hurts as I got the worse news I could have imagined", he said. "I will forever miss you and love you bro".

CBS reported one of the last people to see Hernandez alive was a close friend who is now in isolation on suicide watch.
