Just five days after being acquitted of the murder of two men in Boston back in 2012, former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez kills himself.  According to a statement from the department, the former football star was discovered hanging in his cell at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass., at approximately 3:05 a.m. He was rushed to the local hospital, and was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. Although he was recently acquitted from one trial, Hernandez was still serving a life without parole sentence for murdering Odin L. Lloyd in North Attleborough in 2013.
