Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, who was serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder and was acquitted last week in a 2012 double slaying, has committed suicide in prison.
Corrections officers found Hernandez hanging in his cell at 3:05 a.m. at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley.
Hernandez, 27, was in a single cell in a general population housing unit, officials said.
He hanged himself using a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window. He also tried to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items.
Wow he turned out to be a nice guy after all...saving taxpayers money! Yeah I said that.
