Aaron Hernandez Commits Suicide in Prison

The ex-NFL star was found hanging in his cell. He was 27.

The troubled life of former NFL star Aaron Hernandez is over as he has committed suicide in his prison cell earlier this morning.

Massachusetts prison officials say former NFL star Aaron Hernandez has hanged himself in his cell and pronounced dead at a hospital. He was 27.

Prison officials say that Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population housing unit at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.

Authorities say that Hernandez hanged himself using a bedsheet that he attached to a cell window and that he tried blocking the cell door from the inside by jamming the door with various items.

Hernandez was serving a life without parole sentence for murdering his friend Odin Loyd back in 2013.

Hernandez was acquitted Friday in a 2012 double slaying prosecutors said was fueled by his anger over a drink spilled at a nightclub.

Although many people believe that Hernandez was where he deserved to be, in prison for life, no one saw him taking his own life, and there is still great sadness and sorrow for him and his family. Especially his daughter. 

His suicide comes on the day his former team, the New England Patriots, is celebrating their recent Super Bowl victory by visiting the White House.

A true contrast of the the life he lived up to the very end.
