Prison Officials Didn't Believe That Aaron Hernandez Was Suicidal
"Unfortunately, in the Odin Lloyd matter, for the family, there won't be any real closure", said Healy.
Hernandez was found hanging in his cell overnight at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center. Cugno says he and other Hernandez pals can't believe he took his own life.
Last week, Hernandez was found not guilty of two murders dating back to 2012.
That's the suggestion a couple people close to Hernandez are making.
On the day he signed his $40 million contract, a gleeful, proud Hernandez said he was "set for life, a good life". In an email statement to the Boston Globe, a team spokesperson said they are aware of the former player's death.
The former New England Patriots player was found hanged in his prison cell Wednesday. Therefore, Baez can not piece together why the 27-year-old would take his own life now.
But she says the department needs to hire more mental health professionals.
Baez's law firm will also conduct their own separate investigation into what happened. Fox-25 in Boston noted that the markings were drawn on Hernandez's body with a "blood red" marker.
'Aaron was looking forward to an opportunity for a second chance to prove his innocence'.
He isn't the first inmate to have taken his life at the maximum security prison. The most famous one was the strangulation of convicted pedophile priest John Geoghan (GAY'-gehn) by another prisoner. It has been noted previously that Hernandez routinely read the Bible with Urban Meyer every morning during his Gators career.
All first-degree murder convictions in MA trigger an automatic appeal.
"For all intent and practical purposes, Aaron Hernandez will die an innocent man, but the court of public opinion may think differently", said Healy.
Authorities say Hernandez was found hanging in his MA prison cell early Wednesday and was pronounced dead at a hospital. IN MEMORIAM: Celebrities and notable figures who have died recently Authorities said Hernandez had a brief history of fights while in custody.
Details of the suicide still are coming to light, but both the Massachusetts State Police and the Worcester Country District Attorney's Office are launching an investigation into Hernandez's death. He apparently tried to jam the cell door to prevent guards from opening it and hanged himself with a bedsheet tied to a window, Fallon said.
Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for the district attorney's office which prosecuted the Lloyd case, would not comment on the possibility of the conviction being vacated.
While that won't change Hernandez's reputation, it could have a dramatic impact on the lives of the family members he left behind.
On Wednesday morning, officers found the convicted murderer and former National Football League player dead in his single cell at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center, a maximum security prison in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
It's also possible the markings had a meaning that we'll never know, because Hernandez didn't leave a note behind.
The former New England Patriots tight end was already serving a sentence of life without parole for another murder in 2013. Hernandez was acquitted on April 14, five days before his death. The assistant deputy commissioner of communications, Christopher Fallon, told The Associated Press that officials had not been concerned that Mr. Hernandez was a suicide risk.
"To get to a point where a person commits suicide, it is such a symptom of a loss of hope", said Ruskin. He was acquitted on Friday of a 2012 double homicide in Boston.
"Any time someone kills themselves in prison something clearly went wrong", he said, adding that he had full confidence in prison officials and was unaware of any staff being reprimanded.
