Aaron Hernandez's brain to be donated for CTE studies, lawyer say

Hernandez was found hanged by a bed sheet inside his cell at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass., early Wednesday morning and was pronounced dead the hospital about an hour later.

"From one day to the next, the medical examination office here - specifically a Doctor Nields - has determined that his office will retain the brain of Aaron Hernandez, and that their office is better equipped than Boston's CTE unit, which is the most renowned in the world, as it relates to CTE studies", Baez said.

At the time of his death, Aaron Hernandez had a pending court appeal and under a long-standing MA legal principle, as the Daily Mail explained, "courts customarily vacate the convictions of defendants who die before their appeals are heard". Hernandez was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Hernandez had "impeded" easy entry into the cell, according to the statement.

Hernandez, a tight end for the New England Patriots, received a life sentence two years ago after being found guilty of the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.

His death ended a spectacular fall from grace for a man who signed a $40 million contract in 2012 with this year's reigning Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots, after a troubled upbringing in CT.

Although it is unclear whether or not the families of Lloyd, Furtado, and de Abreu would be legally able to get their hands on Aaron Hernandez's net worth, the Daily Mail explained to readers that because of the murder conviction involving Lloyd possibly being vacated, the Patriots could be forced to pay a contracted $3.5 million bonus to the athlete's estate.

He died nearly exactly two years after he was sentenced to life without parole for murdering a semi-pro football player in 2013 and five days after he was acquitted of double murder in a separate Boston killing in 2012.

Baez declined to say whether he or the family believed brain damage from Hernandez's playing days led him to kill himself. But during his trial in Boston for the killing of two men in Boston in 2012, he appeared upbeat, constantly backslapping his lawyers, letting out bellowing laughs and blowing kisses to his 4-year-old daughter and other family members in the audience.

What's to become of Hernandez's home and other assets is another unanswered question.

Attorneys for Lloyd's mother have placed an attachment on the house as part of their civil suit against Hernandez. The Internal Revenue Service has a $117,395 lien on the property.

Earlier on Thursday, another shocking detail surfaced regarding the night that Aaron Hernandez committed suicide. "Chico was not a saint, but my family and I loved him and he would never take his own life", Murphy tweeted. "Keep smiling because I know Aaron and Dad are both smiling down on you (and) us right now".
