Disgraced NFL Patriots star Aaron Hernandez kills himself in jail

Former NFL player Aaron Hernandez has killed himself at a prison in Massachusetts where he was serving a life sentence for murder.

The Department of Corrections says the 27-year-old was found hanged in his cell just after 3am local time on Wednesday morning.

"Life-saving techniques were attempted on Hernandez and he was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead at 4.07am," its statement added.

Massachusetts State Police have now launched an investigation into the suicide at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Centre in the town of Shirley.

At the height of his sporting career with the New England Patriots, who are currently Super Bowl champions, Hernandez was on a five-year contract worth $40m (£31m).

The tight end footballer was dropped by the team just hours after he was arrested for the 2013 murder of semi-professional footballer Odin Lloyd, for which he was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Less than a week ago, a jury had cleared Hernandez of killing Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in a drive-by shooting after a fight outside a nightclub in Boston's South End.

    Hernandez's attorney Jose Baez is claiming that he and the family believe that the former football star was murdered 


    Disgraced NFL star Aaron Hernandez has committed suicide just days after he was acquitted of a 2012 double murder, and on the same day that his former teammates are scheduled to be honored at the White House for their recent Super Bowl win.

    The convicted killer's death is a final slap to the team that gave him so much, making him a millionaire and one of the brightest stars in the NFL after he was selected by Bill Belichick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

    That success and fame mattered little however to Hernandez, whose life was instead fueled by vengeance and revenge. 

    The former tight end and father of a four-year-old daughter was found hanging in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.

    He did not leave a note. 

    Reports suggest that Hernandez had a violent record in prison, including many fights with other inmates, but he has never attempted suicide.    

    Hernandez's attorney Jose Baez is claiming that he and the family believe that the former football star was murdered, and did not commit suicide.

    Guard: Hey Bill, what's Aaron up to? I haven't heard anything out of him in a while

    Police officer: *Looks in Cell* He's just hanging around....

    Aaron Hernandez 'wrote bible verse John 3:16 on his forehead in RED marker pen and smoked synthetic marijuana before taking his life in his prison cell'

    • Aaron Hernandez, 27, was found hanging in his prison cell on Wednesday morning
    • John 3:16 was reportedly written on his forehead with a red marker and Bible was open to that verse 
    • Hernandez was acquitted in his double murder trial last week but was serving a life sentence for the shooting death of Odin Lloyd in 2013
    • Investigators also looking at possibility he smoked K2 synthetic marijuana before hanging himself - the same kind he smoked after killing Lloyd. It is known to cause psychotic episodes 
    • And he had friction with members of the Bloods gang while in prison, despite - or perhaps because of - the Bloods tattoo he'd had on his neck since 2015 
    • He took his own life the same day the Patriots visited the White House to mark their Super Bowl win 
    • In a Massachusetts legal loophole, Hernandez could have his murder conviction vacated because he died before his appeal was heard 
    • That development may also make any civil lawsuit filed by Lloyd's family against Hernandez's estate more difficult to prove  and therefore help protect what is left of the former NFL star's fortune
    • Hernandez leaves behind his fiancee Shayanna Jenkins and a four-year-old daughter Avielle  
    • Hernandez's attorney, Jose Baez, has claimed he and the Hernandez family believe he was murdered

    Aaron Hernandez, the convicted killer and former New England Patriots star, wrote a popular bible verse on his forehead using a red marker pen before committing suicide in his Massachusetts jail cell, it has been claimed.

    The disgraced ex NFL star reportedly scrawled the verse 'John 3:16', which reads: 'For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.' 

    He also left a Bible in his cell on to that verse, according to CBS Boston. The verse has been referred to as 'The Gospel in a Nutshell'.

    Investigators are also said to be looking at the possibility Hernandez smoked K2 synthetic marijuana before taking his own life.
