Lawyer Says ME 'Illegally' Holding Aaron Hernandez's Brain

Galena Nuncio | 21 Abril, 2017, 22:14

BOSTON Aaron Hernandez's death in prison has been ruled a suicide and the former National Football League star's brain is being donated to sports concussion researchers, MA authorities said Thursday. The 27-year-old Hernandez had been acquitted of two 2012 murders last week, but was still serving a life sentence for a third murder, in 2013.

The body of Hernandez has been released by the medical examiner and was transported to a Watertown funeral home.

The medical examiner's office has not responded to a request for comment. "It is literally a destruction of evidence".

The Massachusetts chief medical examiner, Dr. Henry N. Nields, concluded the "manner of death was suicide and the cause asphyxia by hanging", according to USA Today. CTE, or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, is a disease often found in the brains of athletes who have sustained head traumas.

Yet 10 months later, in 2013, with the discovery of the body of a friend who had been shot multiple times, Hernandez's life began a dramatic spiral downward.

That's a bad number with which to defend the land, and in the first two playoff games against in it actually went up, not down. That series, like this one, featured a team playing well that presented the Cavaliers some problems that they had to solve.

Prison officials say "Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window" in the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center.

He was found hanging from a bedsheet by a corrections officer around 3:05 a.m. Wednesday. Officials did not divulge the contents of the notes.

Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population housing unit in the maximum-security state prison.

But news of former NFLer Aaron Hernandez's suicide in prison highlighted a recent overlooked trend in corrections facilities nationwide. Mitt Romney conducted a top-to-bottom review of the state's prison system that called for improvements in the inmate classification system, disciplinary procedures and prison management.

The Faggas Funeral Home in Watertown, Massachusetts, confirmed to the AP that it received the body but that funeral services will likely be held elsewhere for the CT native.

Support to legalize marijuana hits all-time high
A new Quinnipiac University national poll shows the highest level of support for legalized marijuana in the United States. He has also been published by multiple media outlets, including the Seattle Times.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said he wasn't drawing any conclusions about Hernandez's apparent suicide until the investigation was completed. But they said they were satisfied he died at his own hand, and they said his brain would be donated to sports concussion researchers, ending a brief public dispute over its custody.

Baker also warned against jumping to any conclusions: "There are a million rumors flying out there".

His suicide came only 5 days after he was acquitted on double-murder charges in a separate case, and the timing of his death and absence of a suicide note has left many perplexed.

It was the site of a January riot in which prisoners used fire extinguishers and furniture to battle guards, and the place where defrocked Roman Catholic priest John Geoghan was murdered by another inmate in 2003 after being convicted of sexually abusing a boy.

This ongoing protest, which has run for over a week, has clear parallels with the calls for freedom seen during the Arab Spring. The country now has one of the world's highest murder rate, and an extreme shortage of basic foods and medicine.
