The suicide of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez just days after he was acquitted of killing two men in the South End in 2012 remains shrouded in mystery.

Authorities said the medical examiner had ruled Hernandez's cause of death was asphyxia by hanging and investigators had found the notes and Bible in Hernandez's cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley.

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez reportedly had Bible verse "John 3:16" written on his forehead at the time of his suicide.

"Mr Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items", he added.

The double murder charges were brought against Hernandez after he had been convicted of the shooting murder of an associate, Odin Lloyd, in 2013, in North Attleborough, Mass., near his home and the Patriots' Gillette Stadium.

Hayes said in an e-mail that he was "confident that the agency and its health care provider will conduct comprehensive investigations into Mr. Hernandez's death". Prosecutors contended Hernandez fired into their auto because he felt disrespected when one of the men bumped into him and spilled his drink at a Boston club.

April 14, 2017: Hernandez acquitted of murder in the 2012 killings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. "His agent actually texted me and said he would never kill himself". He was convicted and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.

Before the start of the 2013 season, having just signed a huge contract extension, Hernandez was arrested by police on suspicion of Lloyd's murder.

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

According to Baez, the Hernandez family expected to receive the brain Thursday morning so they could give it to BU.

Quarterback Tom Brady, the team's best-known player, did not attend the White House event due to family commitments, local media reported, citing a statement from the self-described friend of Trump. "Keep smiling because I know Aaron and Dad are both smiling down on you (and) us right now".

Baker said that at this time, he does not believe anyone has been disciplined in the wake of Hernandez's death.

Hernandez's attorneys can move to have the conviction in the Lloyd case erased, said Martin Healy, chief legal counsel for the Massachusetts Bar Association.
