Former NFL star tight end Aaron Hernandez (27), who was serving life in prison for murder, was found hanged in his prison cell early Wednesday morning.

In a recently released statement, the Massachusetts Department Of Corrections stated that corrections officers found Aaron Hernandez at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley Massachusetts at about 3:05 a.m. EST. Hernandez was unresponsive upon the arrival of the officers. Therefore, resuscitation efforts were attempted but ultimately failed. He was subsequently transported to UMASS Leominster hospital where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. EST by a hospital doctor.

The MDOC statement reads, “Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window, Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items.” Although it is apparent that the troubled football player hung himself, Massachusetts State Police are currently investigating the scene, the MDOC said. Investigators are poring over his cell in Unit G-2 but so far have not found anything that resembles a suicide note.

Hernandez’s abrupt suicide comes five days after he was acquitted of murdering two men in Boston in 2012 as reported by GCE. Nevertheless, Hernandez was still currently serving a life without parole sentence for the murder of former associate Odin L. Lloyd in 2013. That case was currently on appeal.

Coincidentally, his former team, the New England Patriots are scheduled to visit the White House today as a part of the tradition of Super Bowl champions being formally congratulated by the president of the United States.
