Day after ex-NFL star Hernandez's death, fight over his brain

Share

The family of Odin Lloyd will continue to pursue its wrongful death lawsuit against Aaron Hernandez despite the convicted murderer's alleged suicide in a MA prison Wednesday morning.

Hernandez's death is now being investigated by the MA state medical examiner's office and is being overseen by the Worcester District Attorney and the Department of Corrections, the Boston Globe reported.

Addressing the victims' families, Ruskin said this apparent suicide isn't likely to bring them any long-term peace. "It is literally a destruction of evidence". Those who love and care about him are heartbroken and determined to find the truth surrounding his untimely death."SEE ALSO: What we know about Aaron Hernandez " Something's not right.

"No one is going to stand in the way of the family's wishes", said Secretary of Public Safety and Security Dan Bennett, whose office oversees the medical examiner.

Nields performed an autopsy on Hernandez yesterday and concluded today that the manner of death was suicide and the cause asphyxia by hanging, according to the statement.

A prison van drives past the at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, U.S., where former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his jail cell April 19, 2017.

It's generally best for researchers to get access to a brain within hours of death to determine the presence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy or other neurodegenerative diseases, said Dr. Guards found Hernandez shortly after 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Fallon said he was not aware of any suicide note and officials had no reason to believe Hernandez was suicidal. "We request that authorities conduct a transparent and thorough investigation".

However, it's unclear what assets Hernandez still has, after years of battling to clear his name in the courts.

Hernandez and Jenkins have a 4-year-old daughter, Avielle Janelle Hernandez. Many were searching for an explanation to the tragic end of a young man whose football skills at one point earned him a five-year, $40 million contract extension with the NFL's top franchise. That was first reported by The Boston Globe, citing another one of Hernandez's lawyers. Lloyd's family has a pending civil suit against Hernandez seeking damages for his killing. The Internal Revenue Service has a $117,395 lien on the property. The team's owner, Robert Kraft, and coach, Bill Belichick did not address Hernandez's death in their remarks and players declined to comment on it. Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember.
