THE COMPLETE AND TOTAL FALL FROM GRACE IS NOW COMPLETE, AARON HERNANDEZ DEAD BY SUICIDE …
CNN is reporting that former NFL star and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez is dead after being found hanged in his Massachusetts prison cell. According to reports, the convicted felon and one time New England Patriot TE hanged himself with a bed sheet attached to a window in his cell at the Souza Baranowski prison. Hernandez was acquitted just five days ago of a double murder; however, he was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for the murder and his conviction in the 2013 shooting of Odin Lloyd.
As stated at ESPN, this truly was a real American tragedy from start to finish. An individual so gifted, so talented, yet so very, very flawed and troubled.
Convicted murderer and former NFL star Aaron Hernandez was found hanged in his Massachusetts prison cell Wednesday morning, officials said, just days after he was acquitted in a separate murder case.
The 27-year-old former New England Patriots tight end hanged himself with a bed sheet attached to a window in his cell at the Souza Baranowski prison in Shirley, the Massachusetts Department of Correction said. His body was discovered at 3:05 a.m.
“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, who was alone in his cell in a general population wing, hanged himself and had “attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items,” the statement reads.
