Aaron Hernandez found with a Bible verse written on his forehead

Aaron Hernandez found with a Bible verse written on his forehead

Defense attorney Jose Baez said Hernandez's family wants to donate his brain to Boston University's CTE Center to advance study of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, but the medical examiner refused to release it.

"The family of Aaron Hernandez has chose to donate to this study so that we could possibly help other young men who decide to play football, and to help further that cause, and also possibly shed light and more evidence on this case", Baez said.

The Medical Examiner's office released a statement saying the brain was being kept because it was part of the investigation into Hernandez's death and could require further analysis.

Baez earlier on Thursday accused the state of reneging on a deal to hand Hernandez's brain over along with his body.

Three handwritten notes were found in the cell but the contents weren't immediately released and authorities said there was no indication of foul play.

It was just after 3 a.m. Wednesday when corrections officers found Hernandez hanging from a bed sheet.

The statement continued: "There were no signs of a struggle, and investigators determined that Mr. Hernandez was alone at the time of the hanging".

Hernandez tried to block the cell door from the inside by jamming the door with various items, Fallon said.

Now multiple reports claim that when the father-of-one was found, Aaron had written the phrase "John 3:16" in red on both the cell wall and his own forehead.

The CEO vowed to never again let a law enforcement remove "a booked, paid, seated passenger", from a plane. "We can't do that". He acknowledged that Sunday evening's event make passage of that proposal much tougher. "That's my promise", said Mr Munoz.

The family of Aaron Hernandez is not convinced that the former National Football League star committed suicide. He was pronounced dead at UMass-Memorial Health Alliance Hospital in Leominster about an hour later.

"It's our position that they are holding Aaron Hernandez's brain illegally", Baez said.

The state Supreme Judicial Court was still reviewing an appeal of Hernandez's murder conviction, and Baez said he was looking forward to clearing his name and never thought Hernandez would kill himself.

The verse, one of the most quoted from the bible, states whoever believes in Jesus "should not perish, but have everlasting life".

He was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the Lloyd murder.

Some people close to Hernandez had questioned the circumstances of his death, with his former agent Brian Murphy writing on Twitter that there was "absolutely no chance he took his own life". "As it relates on whether it is a suicide or not, we don't make that call until everything is done", he said.

He signed a 5 year, $40 million deal with the Patriots in 2010, but hung out with a unsafe crowd.

In 2013, the football player allegedly shot Odin Lloyd and left him for dead in an industrial park near his North Attleboro home.

His death also came just hours before his former Patriots teammates visited the White House to celebrate their recent Super Bowl victory.
