Massachusetts State Police remain on the scene investigating the death.
A MA prisons spokesman says he's not aware of any suicide note written by Aaron Hernandez before the former New England Patriots star hanged himself in his cell, but stresses that the investigation is ongoing.
His former Patriots teammates visited the White House and met with President Donald Trump on Wednesday in honor of their Super Bowl win. The team released him in June 2013, shortly after he was arrested in Lloyd's killing.
Assistant Deputy Commissioner of Communications Christopher Fallon also says Wednesday that officials had no concern that Hernandez was planning on taking his own life. "Ten, 20 years, it's just got to feel endless". Furthermore, officials said Hernandez did not seem suicidal, because if so, he would've been transferred to a mental health unit. He was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. An investigation by detectives from the Worcester District Attorney's office and the Department of Correction, along with an autopsy by a chief medical examiner in Boston, will be conducted to rule out any foul play in the inmate's death.
Prison guards found Hernandez unresponsive in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley shortly after 3 a.m. He had also tried blocking his cell door from the inside by jamming it with several items to prevent it from being opened.
The former University of Florida star was one of the best tight ends in the National Football League at the time of Lloyd's murder.
