"If there had been concerns, Hernandez would have been on mental health watch in a different part of the prison, the spokesperson said". Hernandez stood trial for the July 2012 killings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado who he encountered in a Boston nightclub.

While Simpson's life story continues to play out, Hernandez's life story has come to an end.

One of Hernandez' lawyers, Juan Baez, said in a statement released to USA TODAY Sports and other media outlets that the family is heartbroken and are requesting a "transparent and thorough investigation".

The circumstances surrounding Hernandez's death are suspicious. The assistant deputy commissioner of communications, Christopher Fallon, told The Associated Press that officials had not been concerned that Mr. Hernandez was a suicide risk.

His death marks one of the most dramatic falls from grace by an athlete in recent memory, and comes the same day that many of his former teammates visit the White House as Super Bowl champions. When he was arrested, Hernandez was owed $3.25 million toward the signing bonus on his contract with the Patriots.

Aaron Hernandez was serving a life sentence in prison.

The Massachusetts Department of Corrections noted in it's official statement announcing his death that Hernandez "hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window". In this December 12, 2005 photo, Aaron Hernandez poses for a photo in Bristol, Conn. Hernandez, a former National Football League star, who was serving a life sentence for a murder conviction and Friday, April 14, 2017, was acquitted. He was convicted of murder in 2013 and was serving a life sentence in the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, which was named for two prison workers who were killed in an escape attempt in 1972.

An investigation into Hernandez's death is ongoing, and WBZ reported that authorities were looking into the possibility that he may have consumed a drug called K2, or "synthetic marijuana", Tuesday night. He says a judge has already found Hernandez liable in Lloyd's death, now it's just a question of setting a dollar amount, and getting that money from the Hernandez estate.

Baez said there were no conversations or correspondence to his family or legal team that would have indicated that anything like this was possible. He was acquitted on Friday of a 2012 double homicide in Boston.

TMZ Sports added that Hernandez's family is "devastated" at the news, and don't believe he was in such despair that he would kill himself.

Another local report says that blood was smeared on Hernandez's cell walls. She recently brought their 4-year-old daughter into court, with the tender exchanges between them showing a glimpse into her unwavering support for Hernandez.
