Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez kills himself in prison

Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for the district attorney's office which prosecuted the Lloyd case, would not comment on the possibility of the conviction being vacated. IN MEMORIAM: Celebrities and notable figures who have recently passed awayHernandez was taken to UMass Memorial - HealthAlliance Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. local time.

Before he hanged himself with a bedsheet in his prison cell, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez used a red marker to scrawl the Bible verse John 3:16 across his forehead, according to a report. The Department of Corrections says he was in single cell in a general population unit and that he "hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window".

Prisoner Legal Services of MA has long called on the state to report inmate suicides.

Hayes said in an e-mail that he was "confident that the agency and its health care provider will conduct comprehensive investigations into Mr. Hernandez's death". "Sometimes rounds are done more frequently, and I do not know how often, but regularly - half hour, hour".

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 41 inmates died by suicide in state and federal prisons in MA between 2001 and 2013. 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.

His former Patriots teammates visited the White House and met with President Donald Trump on Wednesday in honor of their Super Bowl win.

"Unfortunately, in the Odin Lloyd matter, for the family, there won't be any real closure", Martin W. Healy, Massachusetts chief legal counsel, tells the Globe. Although illness remained the most common cause of death, suicides represented 7%.

Once the news broke, National Football League agent Brian Murphy, who once represented Hernandez with the agency Athletes First, jumped to his Twitter account to dismiss the official cause of death.

Paris gunman's criminal past in focus as police seek possible accomplices
He was taken into custody but while being questioned grabbed another officer's gun and shot him three times, the source added. Security has been tight in the country, coming just days before the first round of France's presidential election on Sunday.


"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.

Yet 10 months later, in 2013, with the discovery of the body of a friend who had been shot multiple times, Hernandez's life began a dramatic spiral downward.

Though Hernandez was convicted in 2015 of murdering Odin L. Lloyd of Boston, Hernandez's appeal was not complete.

Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez (who reportedly took on Aaron's last name post-incarceration, despite not being married to him), has also been a great subject of ridicule.

What are the authorities saying about his death?

Under a long-standing MA legal principle, courts customarily vacate the convictions of defendants who die before their appeals are heard.

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