Former New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez, 27, was found dead in his prison cell early Wednesday morning. Hernandez’s suicide comes less than a week after he was acquitted of murdering two men in Boston in 2012. He was still serving a life sentence without parole for murdering Odin L. Lloyd in North Attleborough in 2013, however.
