UPDATE: TMZ reports that Aaron Hernandez’s lawyer claims the former football star could have been murdered in prison and not the victim of a suicide. Attorney Jose Baez has started an investigation on behalf of Hernandez’s family, as they do not believe he killed himself. Baez thinks that either inmates or the people in charge of the prison could be behind the hypothetical murder. He said that Hernandez’ family is “devastated” and doesn’t think he was depressed enough to end his life. Baez previously said last week that Hernandez was in a “good place” and “optimistic” that the murder conviction would be overturned.

Original: The Massachusetts Department of Corrections has released a statement revealing that former New England Patriot and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez killed himself in his prison cell. He was 27. ESPN reporter Michelle Steele revealed the statement in a post on Twitter:

The Boston Globe reports that a spokesman for the Massachusetts prisons says he doesn’t know if Hernandez wrote a suicide note, but officials are currently investigating. Assistant Deputy Commissioner of Communications Christopher Fallon added that officials did not put Hernandez on suicide watch because there was no indication that he was planning to kill himself. He was located in the general population unit of the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley.

Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison after murdering Odin Lloyd in 2013. On Friday, he was acquitted of a double murder in Boston from 2012.
