Former Patriot tight-end Aaron Hernandez is dead after hanging himself with a bed sheet.
In a press release from the Assistant Deputy Commissioner of Communication of the Massetchusets Department of Corrections states the following:
“On April 19, 2017, Aaron Hernandez was discovered hanged in his cell by corrections officers at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley Massachusetts at approximately 3:05 a.m., lifesaving techniques were attempted on Mr. Hernandez and he was transported to UMASS Leominster where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. by a physician at the hospital.
Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items.”
Hernandez was tried for a double homicide of two men outside of a Boston nightclub according to CNN.
Former agent Brian Murphy has skepticism about Hernandez’ suicide. “Absolutely no chance he took his own life,” posted on twitter.
Hernandez leaves behind a fiance and his four-year-old daughter.
