Aaron Hernandez's brain to be released for CTE tests

The state's chief medical examiner, Dr. Henry N. Nields, performed an autopsy on Hernandez on Wednesday and determined the cause of death was asphyxia by hanging, the release said. Officials say he hanged himself using a bedsheet, although Baez and Hernandez's agent have called for an investigation, saying that Hernandez was not in a suicidal frame of mind.

Life-saving techniques were attempted on Hernandez and he was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead at 4.07am, its statement added. According to new local news reports, he was found with a sliced open his finger and "John 3:16" written in blood-red marker on his forehead!

Baez said the family decided on giving the brain to Boston University to see if there are signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in Hernandez's brain.

Hernandez was serving a life sentence after he was convicted of first-degree murder in 2015 in the 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd in North Attleboro. Authorities previously said Hernandez had not left a suicide note and he hadn't been on suicide watch.

The 27-year-old was found by Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center guards in his cell around 3 a.m. Wednesday. Many friends and former colleagues were searching for an explanation to the tragic end of a young man whose football skills at one point earned him a five-year, $40m contract extension with the NFL's top franchise.

Mr. Hernandez was housed in a single cell in the general prison population, the statement said.

"The family should be able to have the dignity of a proper service in the proper possession of Aaron's remains", Baez told reporters.

His death is being investigated by the Massachusetts State Police and the Department of Correction.

"If we don't get answers quickly we're going straight to court", said Baez.

He was found not guilty last week in the 2012 double murder of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. Aaron was looking forward to an opportunity for a second chance to prove his innocence. The district attorney's office said the official cause of death was ruled a suicide and the medical examiner would now be releasing the brain to researchers.

Aaron Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, has filed a motion on behalf of their daughter to preserve any evidence in his death.
