Aaron Hernandez Found Dead In Jail Cell; Apparent Suicide

Five days after being acquitted of a double homicide, former NFL star, Aaron Hernandez, has died.

Corrections officials say, Hernandez, who was serving a life sentence for the murder of his sister’s boyfriend in 2015, was found hanging in his Massachusetts prison cell in what seems to be an apparent suicide.

Officials found Hernandez unresponsive in his single-person cell around 3:05 am Wednesday morning.

“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,” the Massachusetts Department of Correction said.

“Mr. Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population housing. Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window. Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items.”
