Aaron Hernandez suicide notes found in cell
There have been many questions surrounding the death of Aaron Hernandez, including whether or not he committed suicide.
The Worcester (Mass.) County District Attorney’s office has officially ruled Hernandez’s death a suicide. The coroner who examined the former Patriots tight end says the manner of death was suicide and the cause of death was asphyxia by hanging.
In a press release, the district attorney’s office also says Hernandez’s cell had cardboard in the tracks of the door to try and impede entry.
Three notes were found next to a bible in the cell, according to the release. A previous detail said Hernandez had a bible verse written on his forehead.
Hernandez was found hanging from a bed sheet in his cell shortly after 3 a.m. Wednesday morning and was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead an hour later. He was serving life in prison for the murder of Odin Lloyd.
