(WHDH/AP) — Netflix released a new docuseries Thursday about “the rise and fall of the infamous athlete Aaron Hernandez.”
Over the span of three episodes, “Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez” examines how he went from an NFL star to a convicted killer.
The former New England Patriots tight end killed himself in prison in 2017 while serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.
Hernandez’s death came just a few days after he was acquitted of most charges in a double murder case.
After his death, doctors found the 27-year-old had advanced chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease linked to concussions and other head trauma commonplace in the NFL.
