Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Henry N. Nields performed an autopsy on former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez Wednesday and concluded Thursday that the manner of death was suicide and the cause asphyxia by hanging.
There were no signs of struggle, per Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.
According to the Daily Mail, “Hernandez was planning his suicide for weeks.”Per the report, Hernandez had given “most of his personal belongings to fellow inmates and covered the floor of his cell in soap,” so that he wouldn’t be able to save himself if he decided to abort the hanging.
Also, three different notes were found in Hernandez’s cell. (It had previously been reported that there was no note). (h/t Pro Football Talk)
This is interesting, but his family will be able to recover the house and car, since he is considered innocent of the killings, even Odin Lloyd by State Law.
