Was Aaron Hernandez murdered?

Aaron Hernandez Commits Suicide Prison Officials

"We request that authorities conduct a transparent and thorough investigation". "There were no conversations or correspondence from Aaron to his family or legal team that would have indicated anything like this was possible".

Less than a week ago Baez was celebrating Hernandez's acquittal in the murder of two men outside a Boston nightclub. He says Hernandez's loved ones are "heartbroken and determined to find the truth surrounding his untimely death".

The Massachusetts maximum security prison where Aaron Hernandez apparently hanged himself has seen its share of troubles since it opened almost two decades ago.

He committed suicide in his prison cell before his appeal, officials said, and so his conviction was abated. It has more than 1,000 cells.

That would mean, legally speaking, Aaron Hernandez died an innocent man.

Removing a conviction after the death of a high profile defendant has precedent in the state.

In Massachusetts, John Salvi was convicted of murder in 1996 for opening fire at a Planned Parenthood in Brookline.

State police were investigating the circumstances of the death of the former rising star in the National Football League, and a coroner was performing an autopsy on Wednesday, April 19.

"Mr.de Abreu and Mr. Furtado were ambushed and executed as they drove home along Shawmut Avenue in Boston's South End in the early morning hours of July 16, 2012", Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said at the time.

Hernandez's death comes the same day the Patriots are making their visit to the White House to mark their Super Bowl win.

Hernandez, 27, was serving time at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.

"We are aware of the reports, but I don't anticipate that we will be commenting today", a Patriots spokesman told ESPN on Wednesday morning. The team released him in June 2013, shortly after he was arrested in Lloyd's killing. Walker said Hernandez could have jumped off a desk built into the wall that is positioned close to the cell window.

A former teammate of Hernandez told ESPN's Josina Anderson he also doesn't believe Hernandez took his own life.

The sports star leaves a four-year-old daughter, Avielle, and fiancee Shayanna Jenkins. Furthermore, officials said Hernandez did not seem suicidal, because if so, he would've been transferred to a mental health unit.
