Loved ones, former teammate, his lawyer and a groing number of those close to him believe something just doesn’t add up with the details of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez’s alleged suicide in a Massachusetts prison cell early Wednesday morning.
Hernandez was found by guards in his one-person cell hanging from a bed sheet that was tied to his window at around 3am. Authorities also say he looks to have used several items to block guards from getting to him easily. He was transported, apparently still alive, to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead approximately an hour later.
Many are wondering why prison officials were so eager to offer up as many details as they did when usually small details are kept under tight wraps until further investigation.
Hernandez’s attorney, Jose Baez and his team are now vowing to conduct their own investigation surrounding the events that led to Wednesday morning.

Adding to the growing list of speculation comes from his agent, Brian Murphy, and at least one former Pats teammate:
Absolutely no chance he took his own life. Chico was not a saint, but my family and I loved him and he would never take his own life.” Murphy posted to Twitter Wednesday morning.
… according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, the unnamed former teammate told her “I am not buying it…. “I’ll never believe (Aaron Hernandez) went out that way. Yes he has emotions, but he’s not wired like that.”
