Aaron Hernandez Commits Suicide
Former New England Patriots Tight end, 27-year-old Aaron Hernandez, was found early this morning dead in his cell. According to officials, Hernandez committed suicide by hanging himself with a bed sheet. “Lifesaving techniques were attempted on Mr. Hernandez, and he was transported to UMass Leominster, where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m.,” the correction department’s statement reads.
Hernandez was serving life in prison, but was also found not guilty of a double murder case, one of which he was acquitted days prior to the hanging. The Massachusetts State Police are now investigating his death.
