Authorities say Aaron Hernandez commits suicide in Massachusetts prison

One of the strangest, saddest sagas in NFL history came to an end on Wednesday morning, as the Massachusetts Department of Corrections says Aaron Hernandez killed himself in his prison cell.

It comes just days after Hernandez was acquitted of double murder. Hernandez was still serving a life sentence after being found guilty of a separate murder.

He was 27-years-old.

 

In a statement, the Massachusetts Department of Corrections outlined the event:

 

“On April 19, 2017, Aaron Hernandez was discovered hanged in his cell by corrections officers at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts at approximately 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. by a physician at the hospital.

 

“Mr. Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population housing unit. 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. The Massachusetts State Police are on scene and the investigation continues. Mr. Hernandez’s next of kin have been notified.”

 

Hernandez leaves a daughter, 4-year old Avielle (she shares his November birthday), a fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, a mother and older brother.

Nope.  I guess the prospect of 23 hour a day lock downs for the rest of his life was too much.  Figured the might as well get it over with.

Aaron had a mental disorder in all seriousness.  I am close to one of his ex-teammates at Florida.

 

The book on Aaron is that he was one of the greatest prospects ever, but he REQUIRED a coach to be with him 24-7.

 

This is a very sad story.

IMO, anyone who commits murder has a mental disorder. A "sane" person would not do that.

I wonder if his brain should be donated for research for CTE

these are the things that i am still trying to understand about Bi-Polar Disorder, without giving too much personal info away i have a family member who suffers from this and the expressions and mannerisms of Hernandez are eerily similar to the family member. there have been violent outbursts in the past. seeing where hernandez ended up makes me worried.

Bi Polar (ism) is treatable. You probably know people who are and have it "controlled" and don't know itor just think of them as quirky or a lil moody..maybe passionate.  If his situation was non treatable the Defense Attorneys would of brought it up.. a scumbag is a scumbag. The Pats  didn't vet him well enough or didn't care. Miami  the same....good riddance

I don't give a fuck if you're moody or passionate or if BPism is classified as a disease... if you take a life you deserve to rot in hell, regardless of whether your 'illness' made you do it.

nice try my friend!

 

'rot in hell' is not state-sanctioned murder

 

That said, if he killed one of my family members, I'd take care of business.

 

I want justice. 

 

What I don't want, is a politically-driven DA looking for re-election, omitting evidence to get a conviction when it will cost a life.

 

I don't trust government to wipe their own ass, why would I trust them with my life?

 

That's what I love about you my man. You're all about consistency.  :lol:

I would love a hunting trip... esp with maui, OT and the rest of the gang joining us. Maybe get Woody to join us too. We wouldn't even know each other were it not for him.

 

And yes there's VERY little we disagree on, but on those we do disagree, I'll get you on the right track soon enough.   :D
