Researchers to look for CTE evidence in Hernandez's brain

Researchers to look for CTE evidence in Hernandez's brain

The timing of his death - prison officials say he hung himself - has perplexed people and Hernandez didn't leave a suicide note.

Hernandez was serving a life sentence at the Souza-Baranowski Correction Center in Shirley for the 2013 murder of Odin Llyod.

The investigation also found cardboard jammed into the door tracks of Hernandez's single-inmate cell, possibly to impede entry.

He was pronounced dead about an hour later at UMass-Memorial Health Alliance Hospital in Leominster, according to a statement from the Massachusetts Department of Correction.

Baez declined to answer questions on Hernandez's mental state prior to his suicide and dismissed as "ridiculous" local media reports citing unnamed law enforcement sources that Hernandez was found with a reference to a Bible verse written on his forehead.

Through it all, Rondo kept a professional attitude, working on his game before and after practice hoping for more playing time. RoLo should be a force in this series from here on out, regardless of what Brad Stevens throws at him in subsequent games.

Hernandez's family had promised to turn his brain over to Boston University's CTE Center after his death, Reutersreported Thursday. Researchers at the center study CTE, a progressive degenerative brain disease found in some athletes who have experienced repetitive head trauma.

"It is our position that they are holding Aaron Hernandez's brain illegally", Baez said. Guards found Hernandez shortly after 3 a.m. Wednesday. He would be convicted of the friend's murder, accused and acquitted of two other killings from 2012 and become a vivid, ready example of out-of-control off-field behaviour by National Football League (NFL) players. Massachusetts State Police remain on the scene investigating the death. His death came less than a week after he was acquitted in a separate double-murder trial.

Reporters seeking comment from the medical examiner's office were not allowed into the building. In addition to Hernandez's family, a quartet of other individuals, like Jose Baez (Hernandez's attorney), are now whistling through the courts in terms of Hernandez's organs.

Hernandez was convicted of killing Lloyd in 2015, but the conviction could be thrown out following his death due to an obscure legal doctrine in MA law known as "abatement ab initio". It was put on the market for $1.5 million in March 2016, but the price has since dropped to $1.3 million. He missed parts of practice during the week before the AFC championship following the 2011 season but played in the game, catching seven passes and running the ball three times in the Patriots' 23-20 victory over Baltimore. "Keep smiling because I know Aaron and Dad are both smiling down on you (and) us right now".
