FORMER NEW ENGLAND PATRIOT AARON HERNANDEZ FOUND DEAD IN PRISON
Police say Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in his prison cell.
According to a spokesperson with the Massachusetts Department of Correction, Hernandez hanged himself with a bed sheet attached to a window at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.
He attempted to block the door of his cell from the inside by “jamming the door with various items,” authorities added. Hernandez, who was already serving a life sentence for 2013 murder, was acquitted Friday in a 2012 double slaying prosecutors said was fueled by his anger over a spilled drink.
