Aaron Hernandez has killed another person as of Wednesday morning, but this time, it was himself.
The former Patriots star TE, who infamously killed Odin Lloyd in 2013, committed suicide in prison cell Wednesday morning according to the Souzaa Baranowski Correctional Center on Shirley, Mass.

Hernandez was discovered hanging in his single cell unit by a bed sheet attached to his cell window at approximately 3:05 a.m. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming it with various items. Along with those items were 3 suicide notes later discovered by officials.
Hernandez was acquitted of double murder just days ago, and according to his lawyer, was likely to appeal the single homicide of Lloyd he was serving a life sentence for.
Ironically and likely not accidentally, Hernandez hills himself on the same day that his former team will visit the White House to commemorate their Super Bowl 51 win vs the Falcons.
