Defense team to conduct own probe of Aaron Hernandez death

  • Aaron Hernandez was serving a life sentence in prison

"The Massachusetts State Police Detectives assigned to the Worcester County District Attorney's Office and the Department of Correction are investigating the death of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez at the Souza-Baranowski Correction Center", Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. said in a statement.

An official revealed that Hernandez was found hanging in his cell just after 3 pm on Wednesday. The former tight end was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead about an hour later. Hernandez died five days after a jury acquitted him in the 2012 shooting deaths of two men whom prosecutors alleged he gunned down after one accidentally spilled a drink on him at a Boston nightclub. Just last Friday, Hernandez was acquitted in a separate murder case. "It's confusing. I thought he was really happy at the verdict".

"Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window", Fallon said. "If the judge made a joke, everybody laughed, he would smile", said Monroe. "There were no conversations or correspondence from Aaron to his family or legal team that would have indicated anything like this was possible". He was serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd in 2013. "Aaron was looking forward to an opportunity for a second chance to prove his innocence".

April 15, 2015: Hernandez is found guilty of killing Lloyd, giving him an automatic life sentence without the possibility of parole.

"A lot of his testimony, I felt was either unverifiable or a lie", Monroe said. "That was their job". I do believe the two people who were slain, they were living the American dream. "Those who love and care about him are heartbroken and determined to find the truth surrounding his untimely death".

Kerala: Easter celebrated in state with religious fervour
This Easter we should remember and pray for those who lost their lives in these heinous attacks. They were fearful and surprised to see the angels, but the message was even more surprising.

But the question into why Hernandez would end his own life may always go unanswered.

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".

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

"I wanted him to suffer in jail", he said as he stood outside the Dorchester home of Furtado's mother. "Words can not express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation", a team statement says.
