People Doubting/Questioning If Aaron Hernandez’s Death Was Suicide

This morning, Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell this morning. Initial reports by law enforcement were he hung himself, but it seems that not everyone believes that the former New England Patriots tight end committed suicide.  In fact, people who were close to him are starting to vocalize their opinions, and they don’t seem to believe his death was suicide.

First, Hernandez’s former agent, Brian Murphy, tweeted out this morning that Hernandez would “never take his own life.”

Specifically, his tweet read that, “Absolutely no chance he took his own life. Chico was not a saint, but my family and I loved him and he would never take his own life.”

That’s not all, though.

According to TMZJose Baez, the attorney who just last week got Hernandez acquitted last week in a double murder case, claims the family is “devastated” and TMZ notes Baez’s family “does not believe Aaron was in a frame of mind to take his life.”

TMZ also claims that they have been informed that Baez thinks that “this could be a murder either by inmates or the folks who run the prison.” 

Stay tuned for more on this breaking story.

Aaron Hernandez Acquitted On Double Murder Charges

The  Aaron Hernandez double murder case reached a verdict on Friday, nearly two years to the day after the former NFL star was convicted in another killing. The jury found Hernandez NOT guilty of murder and several other charges related to the 2012 killing of two men, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

Hernandez was acquitted of all charges with the exception of possession of a firearm without a license.

Jurors deliberated for nearly six days and about 36 hours before reaching the verdict Friday just before 3 PM EST.

Prosecutors said Hernandez opened fire on their car because he felt disrespected when one of the men bumped into him and spilled his drink at a Boston nightclub.

The defense team pointed the finger at Alexander Bradley, a close friend of Hernandez who was with him the night of the shootings.

Hernandez grew up in Bristol, Connecticut, and played for the Patriots from 2010 to 2012. About six weeks after Furtado and de Abreu were killed, Hernandez signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the Patriots and went on to play another season before Lloyd was killed. He was cut from the team shortly after he was arrested in Lloyd’s killed in June 2013.

At the age of 27, he is already serving a life sentence for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.

Aaron Hernandez Could Beat Double Murder Charge After Star Witness Potentially Lied Under Oath

Aaron Hernandez might actually beat his double murder charge after all according to new reports that have surfaced. 

Earlier in the week, the prosecution’s star witness in the Hernandez’s double murder trial, Alexander Bradley, testified that Hernandez shot him in the face and left him to die. This comes seven months after Bradley claims he witnessed the former Patriots tight end murder both Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in a fatal shooting back in 2013.

On Thursday, Hernandez’s lawyer Jose Baez introduced a deleted text message Bradley sent in 2013 to his lawyer suggesting he was not certain who had shot him in the face.

While  Hernandez might actually get off because of this new piece of evidence that has been brought up, Hernandez will still be behind bars for the rest of his life after he was found guilty of murder in a separate case last year.

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez – Shut Down in Battle over Alleged Prison Phone Calls Hack

The Dirty can exclusively reveal ex-NFL star/convicted felon, Aaron Hernandez, was shut down in his legal battle over his prison phone calls being hacked …. with a federal judge throwing out the entire case earlier today.

Hernandez sued the company Securus Technologies Inc. The company records all in and out jailhouse phone calls, except certain conversations protected by attorney-client privileges.

He said the company’s electronic database was hacked and an unauthorized party obtained access to the recordings of the ex-NFL star’s jailhouse phone calls.

The calls were allegedly hacked back in 2014 while Hernandez was locked up awaiting his murder trial. He sued demanding information on how the conversations were accessed and the number of people who listened.

Securus Technologies fired back at Hernandez’s lawsuit demanding the case be thrown out … saying all inmate telephone calls are subject to monitoring and it is deemed to be consent when the inmate picks up the jail phone.

Then on February 2nd, the judge came back with his decision and threw out the ex-NFL stars entire case.

The order states Hernandez provided no evidence his constitutional rights were violated. He notes the allegations are entirely speculative with no concrete proof to back them up. The entire case was dismissed and the ex-NFL star awarded nothing.

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez – Gunshot Victim Accuses Police of Taking Unauthorized Photos while Unconscious

The former friend ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez shot in the face is suing police and the hospital who treated him … accusing them of taking unauthorized photos while he was unconscious … and then releasing the images to CNN.

Back in 2013, Hernandez was sued by his former friend, Alexander Bradley, who accused him of shooting him in the face following a dispute at a Miami strip club. He claimed Hernandez put a gun to his face and it went off … causing major injuries and loss of sight in one eye.

The ex-NFL star settled the legal battle with Bradley months later. Hernandez is currently dealing with a 2nd murder trial over a 2012 shooting that killed 2 men.

Earlier this week, Bradley filed suit against Tenet-St. Mary’s Hospital, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and multiple officers.

He explains following being shot by Hernandez back in 2013, he was admitted to St Mary’s Hospital in Miami.

Back in 2015, he says CNN broadcast a documentary on Aaron Hernandez and his downward spiral … and it featured a photo of him lying in his hospital bed unconscious and bloodied.

Bradley says he never authorized anyone including the hospital staff or law enforcement to photograph him in the bed. He believes the hospital allowed the police into his private room without his consent to take photos.

He’s furious for the invasion of privacy, trespassing into his hospital room and taking/releasing the injury photos without his consent.
