Aaron Hernandez's brain to be donated for CTE studies

Galena Nuncio | 21 Abril, 2017, 19:47

"Now that the cause and manner of death have been determined, the brain will be released to Boston University's Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Center as Mr. Hernandez's family wishes", DA Joseph Early Jr. said in a statement.

"The family of Aaron Hernandez has chose to donate Aaron's brain to the study so we can possibly help other young men who play football. further the cause, and possibly shed light and provide more evidence on this case", Baez said.

Jose Baez, Hernandez's lead attorney in his recent double murder trial, said the family made arrangements with the medical examiner on Wednesday to donate Hernandez's brain to Boston University's CTE Center.

Aaron Hernandez' death has been ruled a suicide, according to the Worcester County District Attorney's office.

The declaration by prosecutors, state police and public health officials came after a tumultuous day in which Hernandez's lawyer suggested the state was mishandling the investigation and illegally withholding his brain after releasing the rest of the body to a funeral home.

"It is our position that they are holding Aaron Hernandez's brain illegally", Baez told reporters, adding that Hernandez's legal team would head "straight to court" if it did not "get answers and answers quickly".

Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population housing unit when he was found hanging from a bed sheet that he had attached to his cell window, according to officials.

Prison officials say Hernandez jammed the door to prevent officers from entering, didn't leave a suicide note and wasn't on suicide watch because he didn't appear to be at risk.

When Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell on Wednesday morning, he reportedly had a Bible scripture written on his forehead in a blood red marker.

But the team released him in 2013 after he was arrested in the killing of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancée.

On Friday, Hernandez was acquitted of all but a gun charge in a lengthy trial in the 2012 shooting deaths of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu.

Meanwhile, Hernandez's alleged victims are moving in on his millions - or what's left of them, The Daily Mail reports.

He was taken to a nearby hospital in Leominster, Massachusetts, where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. Wednesday.

According to Reuters, the state corrections commission said that the former New England Patriots star purposely barred anyone from coming into his cell and then hanged himself. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life", the verse reads.

Baker, a Republican, says MA has made progress in reducing prison suicides in recent years.

Hernandez had been serving a life sentence without parole for the 2013 slaying of a onetime friend.

Gov. Charlie Baker said the state would conduct an investigation to make sure "everyone knows exactly what happened and when".

Aaron Hernandez's family plans on turning the former National Football League star's brain over to a center to study it for possible brain trauma.

Authorities said that Hernandez, 27, did not leave a suicide note and was not under suicide watch at his MA prison, where he had been since his 2015 conviction of the 2013 death of Odin Lloyd.

He signed a 5 year, $40 million deal with the Patriots in 2010, but hung out with a risky crowd.
