It was just a few days ago when we heard that former New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez was acquitted of two 2012 murders.
Hernandez was still facing life in prison after his acquittal from my understanding but the word was there was a possibility of a reduced sentence due to the circumstances.
This news is a huge shock and mystery to everyone involved.

Guards found Hernandez just after 3 a.m., Correction Department spokesman Christopher Fallon said. The onetime tight end was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead about an hour later.
Fallon said he was not aware of any suicide note. He said officials had no reason to believe Hernandez might take his life, and if they had had any such worries, he would have been transferred to a mental health unit.
Last Friday, Hernandez was acquitted in the deadly 2012 drive-by shootings of two men in Boston. Prosecutors said he gunned them down after one of them accidentally spilled a drink on him in a nightclub.
As the jury was deliberating last week, cameras spied Hernandez blowing kisses to the young daughter he fathered with fiancée Shayanna Jenkins.
His death was “a shocking and sad end to a very tragic series of events that has negatively impacted a number of families,” said Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn, who prosecuted Hernandez in the Lloyd case.

@CNN This does not make sense. Why would he kill himself after being acquitted of 2 murders? Someone murdered him, better check jail video.

@CNN Aaron Hernandez was 6’2, 245lbs and hung himself with prison bed sheets? Why did he wait till he got acquitted? Somebody got to that man.
