Former New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his cell after allegedly hanging himself, and new reports claim that he had “John 3:16” written on his forehead.


The bible verse is one of the most quoted in Christianity and says in part that whoever believes in Jesus “shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

Local Boston news station WBZ also reported that Hernandez may have smoked synthetic marijuana K2 before his death.

A close friend of Hernandez was the last person seen with him before his death, and the 22-year-old is currently on 24-hour suicide watch.

Five days ago, Hernandez was acquitted of murder charges in the shooting deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in the South End in July 2012. He was serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd in 2013.

Michael Bennett elaborated more during a press conference, about a video that showed him being aggressively arrested in Las Vegas after the Mayweather Vs. McGregor fight.


The Seahawks star told the media, “It sucks that the country we live in now sometimes you get profiled for the color of your skin. It’s a tough situation for me. Do I think every police officer is bad? No. I don’t believe that. Do I believe that there’s some people out there that are judging people on the color of their skin? I do believe that. I’m just focused on trying to push forward and keep continuously … the quest for justice for people. Keep pushing the quality for oppressed people.”

He went on to further state, “I’m just lucky to be here to be able to speak about it. At any moment I could’ve made the wrong decision or rather move and felt like I was resisting or doing something wrong and you guys would be wearing, the Seahawks would be wearing the patch with No. 72 on it. So I’m just lucky to be here right now to be able to continuously fight for people, fight for the equality of all people regardless of their color, regardless of their gender.”

Fans protested outside of the NFL headquarters in New York City on Wednesday, August 23, demanding that Colin Kaepernick be able to play for a team this season. Any team.


The protesters believe that the star athlete is being blackballed for participating in a protest of his own while kneeling during the national anthem at the start of each game.

Derrick Johnson, NAACP interim president, and CEO, requested a meeting with NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, as he believes it’s “no sheer coincidence” that Kaepernick hasn’t been picked up by a team this season. Johnson added, “No player should be victimized and discriminated against because of his exercise of free speech – to do so is in violation of his rights under the Constitution and the NFL’s own regulations.”

A Massachusetts judge has granted the request of Aaron Hernandez’s fiancee and mother of his daughter to receive copies of the three notes the former NFL tight end left in his cell last week before he killed himself.


Attorney George Leontire told reporters around 12:25 p.m. that a Bristol Superior Court judge had ordered the notes to be released to the family after Leontire filed a motion Monday demanding that they be able to “know their loved one’s final thoughts.”

As previously reported, Hernandez reportedly wrote one note to his fiancee Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, one to their daughter and one to a man described as Hernadez’s jailhouse lover. The letters were left next to a bible.

The Boston Globe reports that Jenkins-Hernandez’s attorney, George Leontire, made the request to the judge Monday morning, hours before Hernandez’s funeral was to begin in Bristol, Connecticut.

“The family has the right, during this grieving process, to know their loved one’s final thoughts,” Leontire wrote in the motion. Leontire said Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.’s office had refused to share the notes’ contents.

The former New England Patriots tight end was serving a life sentence for the slaying of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, who was dating Jenkins-Hernandez’s sister.

He hanged himself in his cell in a maximum-security prison in Massachusetts last Wednesday. He had just been acquitted of murder charges in the shooting deaths of two men in Boston in 2012.

In a statement, Hernandez’s family asked for privacy as it mourns and thanked people for offering condolences.

After the Massachusetts medical examiner ruled the death a suicide, Hernandez’s brain was taken to Boston University, where scientists will study it for any signs of repeated trauma suffered during his years of playing football.

A judge on Friday ordered key evidence preserved, granting a request from Jenkins-Hernandez so the family can investigate the circumstances of his death.
