The NFL star was serving a life sentence for a murder conviction at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Massachusetts. However, just days ago, Hernandez was acquitted for a double murder.
After being discovered hanging onto his prison window using bed sheets, Hernandez was pronounced dead at UMass Memorial-HealthAlliance Hospital in Leominster an hour later.
Last Friday, Hernandez was acquitted for the 2012 murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in Boston.
Massachusetts state police state that the investigation on the death of Aaron Hernandez is ongoing.
