Former NFL Star Aaron Hernandez Found Dead in Prison Cell

  • Aaron Hernandez was serving a life sentence in prison

He previously was found guilty in spring 2015 of the murder of Odin Lloyd.

Alex Cugno (KOOG'-no) grew up with the former New England Patriots tight end in Bristol, Connecticut. He was convicted and sentenced to life without parole.

Fallon also told the Associated Press that investigators are searching the unit to see if Hernandez possibly left a suicide note.

- July 16, 2012: Two men, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, are shot to death in their auto as they wait at a red light in Boston's South End neighborhood.

Attorneys for Lloyd's mother have placed an attachment on the house as part of their civil lawsuit against Hernandez.

Kennedy says the families of Furtado and de Abreu "understand what kind of loss" Hernandez's family is dealing with now. According to the Globe, Hernandez is the 27th recorded suicide at the prison since 2010.

Leslie Walker, executive director of Prisoners' Legal Services of MA, says the Department of Correction has taken some steps over the last decade to make it more hard for inmates to take their own lives. It is their position that they are going to be the ones to do the fixing procedure.

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

"There were no conversations or correspondence from Aaron to his family or legal team that would have indicated anything like this was possible", Baez said. "Those who love and care about him are heartbroken and determined to find the truth surrounding his untimely death".

The Massachusetts maximum security prison where Aaron Hernandez apparently hanged himself has seen its share of troubles since it opened almost two decades ago.

Since the prison opened in 1998, Souza-Baranowski has had a speckled history of violence, including attacks on prison staff and inmates.

It conducts its business in geographic regions, including Americas; Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. Institutional Venture Management Xiii Llc holds 4.41% of its portfolio in Aerohive Networks Inc for 1.11 million shares.

Since then, more details have came out regarding what happened inside that cell.

Authorities say Hernandez was found hanging in his MA prison cell early Wednesday and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Former Roman Catholic priest John Geoghan's child molestation conviction was vacated after he was beaten to death in his prison cell in 2003.

The Worcester County district attorney's office and the Correction Department were investigating, and Massachusetts' chief medical examiner was conducting an autopsy.

The guards tried to resuscitate him, but when they did not get an answer they made a decision to transfer him to the UMass hospital in the city of Leominster where a doctor declared his death at 4:07 a.m., according to the Massachusetts Department of Prisons.

When officials at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in MA responded to Aaron's cell Wednesday morning, the verse John 3:16 was scribbled above his eyes, this according to WBZ Boston. The guards were on their regular rounds, CBS Boston says.

Incidentally, his suicide comes on a day his former teammates were visiting the White House for winning the Super Bowl in February.

But the Patriots released him in 2013, shortly after he was arrested in the killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.

Aaron Hernandez's death in prison overnight Wednesday - just days after the former National Football League star was cleared of additional murder charges - remains shrouded in mystery. He said officials had no reason to believe Hernandez might take his life, and if they had had any such worries, he would have been transferred to a mental health unit. Authorities say the pair stayed on the phone until the 8 p.m. lockdown at the maximum-security prison where he was serving a life sentence for murder.

- April 14, 2017: Hernandez is acquitted of murder charges in the 2012 killings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window. Hernandez was found hanging from a bedsheet and was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead an hour later.
