Aaron Hernandez Dead After Hanging Himself in Prison Cell

Disgraced former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, who was convicted in 2015 of murdering his sister’s boyfriend, has been found dead after hanging himself in his prison cell, Massachusetts corrections officials say.

Hernandez’s suicide comes five days after he was acquitted of double murder charges in the deaths of two men outside a Boston nightclub in 2012.

Hernandez was found unresponsive in his cell at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Lancaster, Massachusetts, about 3 a.m. Wednesday, according to a statement from the state Department of Correction.

He was rushed to a hospital, but later died.

Massachusetts State Police are investigating the death.
