He was indicted for the double murder in May 2014.

According to the Massachusetts Department of Corrections, he was found hanging at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center at about 3:05 am EST in Shirley, Massachusetts after being found in his cell. Live-saving resuscitation efforts were attempted; however, they were not successful.

He was transported to UMASS Leominster Hospital, where at 4:07 am EST, he was pronounced dead.

“Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window,” the MDOC statement said. “Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items.”

The investigation into his death is ongoing. Reportedly, there was no suicide note.

Hernandez played three seasons with the Patriots. His death comes on the day the Patriots visit the White House.

Hernandez was released by the Patriots after he was arrested for semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd’s murder. He was convicted of Lloyd’s murder and life sentence in April 2015.

“We are aware of the reports, but I don’t anticipate that we will be commenting today,” Patriots spokesman Stacey James said.
