Former Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has been serving a life sentence for a murder he committed back in 2013. Last night he killed himself in his prison cell.
According to a rep from the prison, “Mr. Hernandez hangs himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window,”
Aaron was recently acquitted for a double murder on Friday. His lawyer even said after the trial that he believed they could get the murder Aaron was serving time for overturned.
Rescue efforts were attempted on Aaron. He was also transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. The maximum security correction center where Aaron was serving time is one of the most high tech facilities with hundred of security cameras. Officials are already investigating. Sadly, Aaron is survived by his 4 year old daughter.
