Investigation Continues Into Aaron Hernandez's Death

Hernandez's former agent, Brian Murphy, tweeted on Wednesday morning that there was "absolutely no chance" that he took his own life. He was serving life without parole for the murder of Odin Lloyd in 2013.

"There were no conversations or correspondence from Aaron to his family or legal team that would have indicated anything like this was possible", Baez said in the statement. "It is literally a destruction of evidence".

The attorney is calling for a "transparent and thorough investigation" into the death of his client.

"We often see the response", said Ruskin.

They're calling it a suicide, but an autopsy will be conducted later this week in Boston.

That was before Hernandez racked up scoring records in high school and rocketed to the Florida Gators as a top recruit.

The 27-year-old was accused of killing Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, but the jury did not find him guilty.

Investigators suggested Hernandez shot Lloyd to keep him quiet about the two earlier killings.

Almeida said the prime minister's main vulnerability was the continuing electricity crisis, which he had been unable to solve. Sharif's ruling PML-N party insists the wealth was acquired legally through family businesses in Pakistan and the Gulf.

Hernandez apparently jammed the door to prevent officers from entering, didn't leave a suicide note and wasn't on suicide watch because he didn't appear to be at risk, according to prison officials.

Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for the district attorney's office which prosecuted the Lloyd case, would not comment on the possibility of the conviction being vacated. His name also had come up in an investigation into a shooting.

But "from one day to the next", he said the medical examiner's office changed its mind.

The Faggas Funeral Home in Watertown, Massachusetts, confirmed to the AP that it received the body but that funeral services will likely be held elsewhere for the CT native.

Prison officials said he had showed no signs of distress of depression in the hours leading up to his death. "None of them have been substantiated".

Cugno says he thinks it's "fishy" that Hernandez would have killed himself when he was just acquitted of a 2012 double murder.

Hernandez's suicide comes less than a week after he was acquitted of murdering two men in 2012. At the White House event in the afternoon, President Donald Trump congratulated the Super Bowl champions but made no mention of Hernandez.

"Aaron Hernandez was found in his cell with a Bible verse written on his forehead in blood ... this according to local reports".
