Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell in April 2017 in the Sousa-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley. The ex-NFL star was serving a life sentence for murder.

Hernandez’s death came just days after he was acquitted in a second murder case. He tried to jam the cell door to prevent guards from opening it and hanged himself with a bedsheet tied to a window, prison officials said.
