A study of deceased ex-Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez's brain revealed a case of Stage 3 CTE.
Stage 3 CTE is associated with "cognitive impairment and trouble with executive functions like planning and organizing." Hernandez was one of the youngest ex-players to be diagnosed with the brain disorder, which is the result of repeated head trauma. Serving a life sentence for murder, Hernandez committed suicide in April. Thu, Sep 21, 2017 04:39:00 PM

Convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez committed suicide in his prison cell on Wednesday.

Serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, Hernandez was acquitted of a double-murder charge last week. He was in a single cell in general population at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Massachusetts. There had been no indication he was a danger to himself. Officials found Hernandez hanged in his cell via a bed sheet tied to the window. It's hard to feel bad for Hernandez, but his family, especially his four-year-old daughter, and Lloyd's family and any of Hernandez's other victims are in our thoughts. Hernandez was 27 years old.

Former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez was found not guilty in the murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

Hernandez was exonerated for the 2012 double homicide but found guilty of unlawful weapon possession. He's still serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd without the possibility of parole. Hernandez turned 27 in November.

Former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez was found guilty of first-degree murder Wednesday.

The guilty verdict comes with a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. Hernandez will never see the light of day again after his senseless murder of Odin Lloyd. The guilty verdict came as a bit of a shock, as it was believed Hernandez had a decent chance at winning the case. He still faces trial for a 2012 double-murder. Hernandez is just 25 years old.

Ex-Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez pleaded not guilty to seven charges at his Wednesday arraignment on two counts of first-degree murder.

The arraignment took place in Suffolk Superior Court. Hernandez is charged with the shooting deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in July of 2012. This is separate from Hernandez's first-degree murder charge for allegedly causing the death of Odin Lloyd in 2013. From everything we've read, the evidence in both cases is pretty overwhelmingly in the prosecution's favor.

Former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez was formally indicted early Thursday on two counts of first-degree murder stemming from a May 2012 incident in Boston where two men were killed.

He was already charged with Odin Lloyd's murder in a North Attleboro industrial park. The double homicide involves new charges, where Hernandez is accused of gunning down Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado while stopped at a traffic light. As the Boston Globe notes, "The new charges raise the disturbing possibility that Hernandez played games during the 2012-13 season after murdering two men."

Aaron Hernandez is facing charges of assault and battery and threats to do bodily harm for his alleged jailhouse beating of a fellow Bristol County inmate in February.

Hernandez was indicted on Thursday. Needless to say, this won't help his murder case.
Thu, May 1, 2014 05:26:00 PM

TMZ reports Aaron Hernandez is being investigated for "allegedly threatening to shoot and kill a guard" at Bristol County Jail in late 2013.

It should be noted that TMZ completely mangled the Colin Kaepernick "story." Nevertheless, we've reached the point where anything is believable when it comes to Hernandez. His (alleged) sociopathic behavior has continued unabated behind bars.

Aaron Hernandez is facing assault charges for his role in a February prison fight.

This isn't going to help Hernandez's cause in his murder cases. Hernandez's alleged beatdown of a fellow inmate has also gotten him assigned to a "more restrictive unit" of the Bristol County Jail. The Hernandez revelations will seemingly never end.

Aaron Hernandez has been reassigned to a more restrictive unit of Bristol County Jail following his Tuesday fight.

Hernandez's new cell looks the same -- a barren room with a bunk bed and a toilet. But now he has to be in cuffs, complete with a waist chain and leg irons, every time he leaves his cell. A source tells NECN that Hernandez was not in handcuffs at the time of the fight, but the other inmate was. "I'm not happy that there may have been a breakdown in our system and our protocols," sheriff Thomas Hodgson said. Hernandez is still awaiting trial after pleading not guilty to the murder of Odin Lloyd.

TMZ reports incarcerated former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez attacked another inmate at Bristol County Jail on Tuesday, and "beat the guy up pretty good."

For his protection, Hernandez is usually segregated from the general prison population, but somehow "came into contact with another inmate." The two had reportedly been "beefing all day long." It doesn't sound like Hernandez has learned a thing behind bars. It's another strike against Hernandez as the state builds its case against him in multiple murders.

The Taunton Daily Gazette reports prosecutors in the Aaron Hernandez case won't call Carlos Ortiz, once believed to be the star witness, to the stand to testify as a witness at all.

Neither Ortiz nor Ernest Wallace, the two men believed to be in the car with Hernandez and victim Odin Lloyd on the night of the murder, will be called as witnesses. Prosecutors reportedly view Ortiz as "completely unreliable" because his story has changed dramatically over the past couple months. Prosecutors now want to look over Hernandez's phone conversations via text message in search of "coded messages" he may have sent to his fiancée or cousin. The case against Hernandez may not be as strong as once believed.

A search warrant has been released that explains why Boston police suspect Aaron Hernandez in a 2012 double homicide.

While Hernandez remains jailed without bail in a separate case, the first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd, evidence against him in a prior case is emerging. Police suspect Hernandez was in an SUV that circled a block waiting for Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado to enter their car after leaving a Boston club. The SUV then pulled up next to the victims' car and someone fired five or six shots that killed Abreu and Furtado. The evidence includes that the SUV was given to Hernandez by a rental company and was later found in the home of one of his cousins, where it had been gathering dust for a year. It's been reported that Lloyd might have had knowledge of those Boston slayings. If that's proven true and the feds get involved, Hernandez could be facing the death penalty. Prosecutors in the Boston case have filed no charges yet.

Aaron Hernandez has been indicted by a grand jury with first-degree murder in the killing of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez had already been charged with first-degree murder and a number of weapons violations in the June 17 death of Lloyd, and he's been held without bail since June 26. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty. The indictment reaffirms the charges already brought against him. Prosecutors say Hernandez "orchestrated" the murder.

Sources tell ESPN that the Patriots do not intend to pay Aaron Hernandez an $82,000 offseason workout bonus due Aug. 1.

In theory, Hernandez earned the $82K by participating in spring workouts. Of course, he was subsequently charged with murder and released by the team. The Patriots also intend to withhold a $3.25 million bonus due in March of 2014. Hernandez's agents are expected to file a grievance against the Patriots in an attempt to secure remaining guarantees on their client's contract.
