IN MEMORIAM: Celebrities and notable figures who have recently passed awayHernandez also appeared to have red marks on his hands and feet, and investigators are looking into whether he may have smoked synthetic marijuana the night before his death. He said that it was "completely agreed upon" that a university would send somebody to harvest the organ on the morning of April 20, but medical examiner Dr. Henry Nields said that he would perform the tests himself and has not yet released the brain, causing a conflict of plans.

"We need to specifically do everything possible to find out what happened", Baez said. They said there were no signs of a struggle and Hernandez was alone at the time of the hanging.

Hernandez, 27, was locked in his cell in the general population area of the maximum-security prison at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday and investigators determined nobody entered the cell until correction officers forced their way in at 3:03 a.m. on Thursday.

After he was found, "lifesaving techniques were attempted on Mr. Hernandez and he was transported to UMass-Memorial Health Alliance Hospital in Leominster where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m.by a physician at the hospital", Fallon said.

"The family of Aaron Hernandez has made a decision to donate Aaron's brain to the study so we can possibly help other young men who play football. further the cause, and possibly shed light and provide more evidence on this case", Baez said.

According to Reuters, the former National Football League player's family plans to donate his brain to the CTE center at Boston University, where it will be used for research. The center studies chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a condition linked to the sort of repeated head hits common in football that can lead to aggression and dementia.

The Faggas funeral home in Watertown, Massachusetts, confirmed to the AP that it received the body but that funeral services will probably be held elsewhere.

He said the brain was supposed to be picked up at 10 a.m. Thursday, but the medical examiner's office reversed course at the last minute and chose to keep the brain and conduct its own study.

He said: "We are far away - not in terms of the quality, in terms of how we play situations". He said: "My feeling before that was he was just waiting to score a goal".

Hernandez's lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"We're not suggesting anything", he said. "We need to examine every aspect of this case". "Once that is complete the brain will be released to Boston University", Bennett said.

Many other questions remain unanswered, including what's to become of Hernandez's estate and why he would kill himself just days after the he was cleared of two murder charges. He was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez was emotional Friday as the jury read a not guilty verdict acquitting Hernandez of the 2012 fatal shootings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in Boston. It was first reported it was written in blood, but was changed to blood red marker in later reports.

The 5,800-square-foot, five-bedroom, seven-bathroom house that he bought not far from Gillette Stadium for $1.3 million in November 2012 is still up for sale.

Despite that, the Lloyd family's attorney told TMZ Sports they are moving forward with their civil suit and still believe they will win.

Hernandez's older brother Jonathan "DJ" Hernandez, meanwhile, took to Facebook Thursday to wish his mother, Terri Hernandez, happy birthday.

A spokesperson for Boston University said, "It is our policy that we do not and can not discuss any ongoing, completed or potential case (s) without specific consent from the family".
