The NFL And Patriots May Be Forced To Pay Aaron Hernandez's Family A Lot Of Money As State Holds His Brain

A MA prosecutor said on Thursday the state would release the brain of New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez after his attorney accused the state of reneging on a deal to do so the day after he was found dead in his prison cell.

"The family of Aaron Hernandez has decide to donate Aaron's brain for study, so we could possibly help other young men who decide to play football", Baez said.

Authorities said that Hernandez, 27, did not leave a suicide note and was not under suicide watch at his MA prison, where he had been since his 2015 conviction of the 2013 death of Odin Lloyd.

The acquittal spurred hope in his legal team, including defense attorney Jose Baez, who said there was nothing "that would have indicated anything like this was possible".

The Worcester County district attorney says the state's chief medical examiner had withheld some tissue samples from the ex-NFL star's brain as part of the effort to confirm he took his own life. "It is literally a destruction of evidence". MA prison officials said Hernandez hanged him. He added that he supports the leadership of the state Department of Correction. Instead, they want the Boston University CTE unit to takeover.

Injuries from Aaron Hernandez's football days may have contributed to his unexpected suicide, his family believes.

Hernandez was found hanging from the window of his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in MA on Wednesday morning. Guards found Hernandez shortly after 3 a.m. Wednesday. He had attempted to block the door from the inside by jamming it with various items, prison officials said. In 2012, he signed a five-year, US$40 million contract extension.

Massachusetts Department of Correction spokesman Christopher Fallon said he was not aware of any suicide note and said officials had no reason to believe Hernandez was suicidal.

Also calling for an investigation into Hernandez's death is State Sen.

Aaron Hernandez's top lawyer says he has retained prominent medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden to conduct an independent autopsy. Hernandez's body was taken to a funeral home in Watertown, Mass., but the owner told the Boston Globe that there were no plans to hold the funeral there.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said he wasn't drawing any conclusions about Hernandez's apparent suicide until the investigation was completed. "None of them have been substantiated". "If he hung himself not too long after ... clearly, I must have been wrong".

He had been serving a life sentence without parole for the 2013 slaying of a onetime friend.

Last week, Hernandez was acquitted in the 2012 drive-by shootings of two men in Boston.

Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey, a college teammate of Hernandez's, said on Instagram: "To my friend my brother!" In August of 2015, Hernandez was involved in another fight at the prison, ABC News Boston affiliate WCVB reported at the time.

Other questions surrounding Hernandez's death still remain unanswered.

The 5,800-square-foot house with 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms was put on the market for $1.5 million in March 2016. The Internal Revenue Service has a $117,395 tax lien on the property.

Hernandez and his older brother, Jonathan Hernandez, would exchange mail regularly while he was in prison, Sports Illustrated reported past year. "I will forever miss you and love you bro".
