Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez apparently left a message when he took his own life in his cell at a maximum security prison in Shirley, Massachusetts early Wednesday.

According to CBS Boston affiliate WBZ, Hernandez, 27, scrawled a bible verse on his forehead in his own blood.

WBZ reports exclusively that Hernandez cut his finger and then scrawled the bible verse John 3:16 in his own blood on his forehead before hanging himself.

The full bible verse says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

There was also blood found on a wall inside Hernandez’s cell.

Guards discovered his body hanging from a window at 3 a.m. He used a bed sheet to hang himself.

Investigators are also trying to determine if the the former New England Patriots tight end smoked marijuana in his cell before he died.

Last week, Hernandez was acquitted of murdering 2 men in Boston in 2012. He shed tears in the courtroom then blew a kiss to his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, and their 4-year-old daughter, Avielle.

Hernandez was serving a life sentence for the shooting death of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, who was dating Jenkins’s sister.

    ““For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that
    whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

    and that can fit on his forehead,

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That’s the “full” verse, hun. He wrote part of that verse on his forehead.

  • Soda

    Did they say if it was written backwards?

  • Anunnaki

    ok thanks,

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    What a pus$y. If he can do this shi t knowing he has a daughter, she’s better off without him.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I’d like to see what was written on his forehead. Writing a message on your own forehead, even with the help a reflective surface, isn’t as easy as you think.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Bam!

  • Cheese eggs

    To be honest, she was going to be without him any way

  • hottlanta

    I told my little Hots I would have never brought them down to the court room that day. That will be the only memory she will have of her dad.

  • shun king

    Hey smoked that synthetic marijuana! And killed hisself

  • IamAllnatural

    What good was he to his daughter?

  • IamAllnatural

    I don’t believe this?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She’s 4 years old. Sadly, she won’t have any memory of her dad.

  • Soda

    She’s 4, she probably won’t remember him at all. She was just a toddler when he went in so unless her mom took her to visit him frequently in jail, she really didn’t know him.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He probably wrote “JOHN 3:16” in blood.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    He was murdered but, I don’t give a damn about this thug so… blah

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I know, but unless he practiced, some of the characters might be backwards.

  • hottlanta

    Kids remember more than we give them credit for. So sad she is a cutie.

  • Clopretty

    Why do they keep calling the prison he was in a maximum security prison when they clearly didn’t have enough security to make sure he didn’t take his own life… so how is this maximum security? what are they securing to the max?

  • Soda

    And they took care not to smear it as they spent an hour trying to resuscitate him, while wondering what 61: 3 NHOJ meant.

  • n1kk1a

    How did he write all that on his forehead???

  • dontgetblocked

    That may not be a bad thing, Auntie.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    He was doing a lot in this maximum security prison. Hell, he should have just waited until dinner time and used the spoon to tunnel his way out. Tf kind of prison is this.

  • Kilroy

    Dude just wrote the verse me verse number. So sad…

  • Dane

    Or allegedly smoke weed

  • Kilroy

    They were either slipping or somebody took Hernandez out. Either way they are responsible.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    ????

  • Shira Harding-James

    OMG was just thinking the same thing!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Thank you!! He didn’t ‘t have enough blood or forehead!!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He wrote “JOHN 3:16,” hun.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Thanks

  • Clopretty

    RIGHT! like how is he smoking weed in a “maximum security” prison… i’m confused!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    LMAO! ?

  • Rachel

    Exactly. Does anybody remember when Deanglo was killed on The Wire? It was a murder staged as a suicide. This reminds me of that episode.

  • A D N

    Never noticed how cute and fine he was. Sad life he lived.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!! He probably could have pulled an El Chapo if he was patient enough.

  • EMILY POST

    He had gone nuts or had been mental left this earth… Mental Health needs to be a priority.

  • Ms.Caramel

    How does a person get accused of killing 2 people on 1 occasion and 1 person sometime later, but is innocent? Was he? I know he was convicted but wasn’t he singing ” I’m innocent”?

  • EMILY POST

    How has all this murder just become the norm…

  • stanley

    Such a waste of a Good Looking man smh* This only proves that you can be born with it all, and still make bad choices.

  • Keekz

    lol.

  • Soda

    Ask O.J.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I could believe he smoked weed. I imagine it takes a lot of guts to kill yourself. He prolly needed all the courage he could get to hang himself.

  • Keekz

    “allegedly smoked weed…” either he smoked it or didn’t. Besides, I read it was K2/synthetic marijuanna. If it was K2, then suicide is plausible. Either way the prison is responsible.

  • GuestSTAR

    El Chapo had the money to payoff guards and everybody else to help him escape. So much in fact, that he had a tunnel built to escape.

  • Keekz

    ?omgoodness ??

  • LibraGirlonly

    Weed is a downer. I’m not buying this story.

  • Khari Zubari

    He was murdered! Do the science. He JUST was acquitted of the most serious charges and his lawyer said he was going to appeal for a retrial of the other sentence based on the results second trial. He just WON against the Feds. I believe I also read his lawyer was feeling positive on a reversal of the first case and things were looking hella good on getting out soon. Then hes depressed and kills himself a few days after his victory…in a maximum security cell…that obviously has no cameras…after taking some of that available max security weed to the head…before/after writing bible verses on his head in blood and the guards didnt see any of this, ever. GTFOH! If your case is so screwed why sit in fed prison for a few years waiting for your day in court and spending over 11 million on your defense?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Don’t believe it. Smh

  • LibraGirlonly

    People don’t use commen sense and logic most of the time.

  • LibraGirlonly

    They are so use to us believing Whatever they say.

  • Khari Zubari

    I guess now you’ll tell me a crackhead set a fire that burned down an entire section of a major Atlanta interstate. An interstate that was made of cement. With a bic and a lawn chair

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I vaguely remember what happened at age 4, I can recall a few things here and there. I damn sure remember age 5 and up though. My great grandmother died when I was 5 and I still remember everything about her, everything.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Boooooooo! I’m mad they really concocted this bullish story after they obviously murdered him. Where there’s smoke there’s fire. I’m suppose to believe he was able to write John 3:16 legible enough on his forhead in his own blood? With out a mirror? And whomever murdered him oops I mean found him was able to make out what he ALLEDLEGY wrote on his forhead. OKAY!

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    This is just so sad! I do believe there was foul play regarding his suicide. Again I say to all the families impacted, may they find some sort of peace. He was always GORGEOUS (to me anyways).

  • Hmmm~?

    Poor dude. I can tell that he was depressed out of his mind. Ruining his life, and promising career over something so dumb. His team going on to win the Super Bowl without him must’ve really hurt. He was also sexy as hell. May he R.I.P.

  • n1kk1a

    Thank you! The way I read it was like he sprawled the whole message on his forehead. It’s been a long day, and I’m way too literal. I’m working on that! ?? Thank you, Love!

  • Aries Dog

    So you guys don’t believe he killed Odin? Serious question

  • Michelle

    How can he have written that if he was already dead? They killed that boy and they know it. They can spin this a million different ways and it won’t change the facts. Gangs run deep in prisons. End of story.

  • Michelle

    Exactly…..???

  • Michelle

    He may have. But he didn’t kill himself.

  • luVn_liFe…

    lolololol
    :dead:

  • imright

    he wrote all that on his forehead ?? tf outta here !!! MURDER !!! they could not deal with the fact that he may walk !!! period !!! cant convince me he killed himself !!! foh

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Hi,

    No I don’t.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Hi Rif ?

  • guest

    WAHTEVA BS!!! Dude was too into himself to want die and kill himself.! The guards and/or prisoners killed him.

  • IamAllnatural

    I believe he committed suicide because he had nothing to live for. He was rightfully convicted of murder. He was too nonchalant to be innocent, from his arrest to his trial. If I was wrongfully arrested & charged with murder, I would’ve been crying & screaming to everybody that I didn’t do it. But he was too calm & quiet= guilty!

  • IamAllnatural

    For what reason?

  • CookieMobster

    Maybe he did kill himself because he killed those people and he was over come by grief at the fact that he was acquitted. I don’t think someone could sneak in, kill his big sexy ass, and sneak back out after they jammed the door. And I don’t think he wrote the whole verse on his forehead, just the words John 3:16.

  • kekeb

    This is so devastating

  • Genia W-m

    Another woman waiting for an inmate. I’ve followed this guy and boy, he had some serious rage issues. Only 27 yrs old, a fantastic future all ruined because he couldn’t control his emotions. If someone did kill him, they poisoned him. However, I highly doubt it. He couldn’t bare to live in prison the rest of his life. He thought he’d never be caught. He killed with ease too so I wonder what he did and didn’t get caught?!!!

  • Genia W-m

    Hahahahahaha

  • Genia W-m

    Not if it’s laced with something.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I must say if they wanted him dead he would be dead, which he is.

    They have his car on camera leaving the scene mintes after the gunfire so imagine that.

  • jazzysmith12

    When you are in prison, a lot of dudes hate on you. Aron’s big Bubba boyfriends (gang) probably killed him.These guys probably r!!ped him after the victory trial just to continually break his manhood because of his trial victory .Prison is rough–the end of life.

  • nich

    Right!! A whole bible verse on a forehead tho?? That doesn’t sound right. In the end, the whole story is tragic. Oden is dead, now Hernández is dead. It’s all too much. Also, he did have the lawyer who got Casey Anthony off. Perhaps he could have gotten the conviction overturned?? Idk. All I know is that it’s sad.

  • TooMuchTea

    And Odin’s last text message! He Guilty

  • jazzysmith12

    Right.Prison is like that.A lot of dudes hate on you for no reason

  • nich

    And he wrote it in the dark? Aren’t the lights out at a certain time?

  • jazzysmith12

    Who knows.It could have been the jealous gang in their because he stood a chance of getting out.Prison is pure evil on another level.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    It seems like “our people” love to believe conspiracy theories.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    SMH This is hell on Earth

  • Khari Zubari

    its crazy to say its a conspiracy yet the same day of his suicide they release an “abatement”, meaning he died innocent! Again I ask if life was so awful why not write a note to your ride or die or your kids or why not kill yourself years ago and save the time and money? Why wait till you win your case then not even a week later you commit suicide? Read it yourself

  • VM

    The list runs long especially his time under Urban Meyer when he played for Florida. Urban swept most of the dirt he did under the rug and one of his handlers was none other than Tim Tebow to help keep him out of trouble. I guess it was worth it to them because they did win two titles. The things people do to compromise their moral character all in the name of football is disgusting. Allegedly, he ran with street thugs and the NFL knew this that’s why he dropped down on the draft board. He was always into something and two of the best coaches couldn’t steer him off the path of destruction. This dude had potential to become something great on the field.

  • VM

    Right, just for talking to some dudes that he didn’t like. Odin knew he was going to kill him over something so petty, that’s why he left the trail.

  • Ryan

    Actually happens in every culture that idolizes celebrities. Some YT folks think Paul Walker’s still alive. And there were “Elvis isn’t dead!!” stories for YEARS.

  • Maxima

    I am thinking that he is probably mostly in solitary due to his notoriety. that can play tricks on the mind. What doesn’t make sense to us, makes perfect sense to a man alone with his thoughts, for a long time. His life caught up to him and he had been acting impulsively all his life, so why not do something impulsive, like suicide. Few suicides are “planned” by people under 30. And the most likely people to commit suicide in jail are those with very long sentences over a crime committed out of passion, spontaneous rage or under the influence of drugs. It was the intersection of events: his daughter is now a toddler, the Patriots went to the White House and he was acquitted on a double murder charge… all of that at once can rock some deep seated emotions. So he “mans up” and gets beyond himself in the eclectic thought: he believes that he will not pass his sin onto his child, free up his wife to move on, make sure his estate is not sued so his daughter and wife won’t be impoverished and pays his karmic debt. If that is the case, he was a courageous man, not just the out of control thug he was all of his life.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No it’s just that the fact that he was just acquitted of double murder and one of the best lawyers in the country had just filed an appeal on his murder conviction so it makes sense that he would have been hopeful that he was going to at least get a new trial at the least if not having the conviction overturned at best.

    That’s not a time when most people give up and off themselves.

    I believe it was gang related since Hernandez had joined a gang shortly after he was imprisoned and a member of a rival gang thought he may be getting out of jail soon so they killed him in an act of relatiation.

    Who knows?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He was a gang member.

  • RicanLBC

    U made some very valid points . At first I thought maybe someone killed him.. but the more I think about it. WHY? He has been rotting in there for a year or so. Why now? I now am convinced, he decided what life was that to spend everyday locked up till u die? He had come to terms he would never parole. He made a very dumb decision. That ultimately causes his life sentence . His poor daughter. That fiance will move on.

  • RicanLBC

    It ain’t the end of the story ! Bc u say so?? I’m so tired of you newbies coming on here punking people ! I wish she never added this extension to the site. I loved it when Sandra monitored, who came and went! We been on here for years. It’s a blog, everyone has an opinion to sound off. You don’t shut someone down bc they don’t agree with you. It’s not the end of the story dumbass. He is just dead UNFORTUNATELY.

  • Maxima

    Exactly. His daughter will be ok because the mother (who I actually met on several occasions and she is surprisingly very nice) will create a life where the child will be adopted and not even remember her father. I think that is what he would have wanted — a new life for all. Unfortunately, the man’s talent was really the charge for his undoing.

  • Jussjess25

    No matter how you slice it, this is a tragic story with a tragic ending. This man as everyone has said had a great beginning but the devil got a hold of his soul. God bless the victims and God bless his soul.

  • Jussjess25

    Im tellin you..

  • Jussjess25

    Nothing ever makes sense about suicide. To some its the worst decision ever but to others at times its the only choice they have. When one decides to commit suicide usually the circumstances as to why, dont match up to the cause or the reason. In this case he probably had no more fight left in him. Sadly ?

  • Jussjess25

    Can someone please tell me why he killed all these people?? I mean why did he kill his sisters boyfriend? What was it over .. im confused.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    The question was: do we think did he kill Odin.

    Yes he was there. Yes he had a hand in it. But the older dude did it

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Yes. I know he was. he didn’t pull the trigger. The older dude did.

    I simply answered your question.

    Your question was not: Is Odin Lloyd dead because of Aaron Hernandez

    No doubt whatsoever that O is dead bc of him.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Anything and everything to make Aaron look bad. We, who have sense, know this man did not kill himself.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

  • XoXo

    One thing that has always stuck with me was the way the coach & team did him when he was charged, but not even convicted. That was awful. People are so quick to judge.

  • Satin Panther

    Damn that was a fine a$$ killa right there.

  • jazzysmith12

    Thou shalt not kill.He orchestrated the murder of Odin.But only a few seem to be concerned about Odin.Odin’s family can slightly rest in peace as vengeance has been served.

  • Lovely

    Aaron Hernandez did NOT commit suicide! There is more to this story..

  • jazzysmith12

    Once you are in prison,it consumes you.You no longer have a governing right over your body your soul.You do whatever it takes to live another night.When they come for you to r!!pe you,you either submit or you will be dealt with harshly meaning death.
    Prison is pure hell on another level.My synopsis:a jealous gang couldn’t take that he may get out and killed him.Why? because he probably was paying big money inside for protection and the daemon gang couldn’t take that he might be free with this trial win.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    It’s an abatement because the prisoner died while appealing his conviction. It’s not much of a conspiracy there as it is the law if you read further in the article.

    i would have believed suicide had the acquittal and jose baez throwing hints that he might step into the game not happened just days before. the timing is just NOT RIGHT on this one. inside hit for whatever reason and lord knows the prison is not going to admit this happened on their watch.

    He didn’t kill Odin Lloyd.

  • OP2

    If people paid more to attention those typical digits written into a news-article about a person or happening disguised as dates, location, time, they can catch on too and figure what really took place. Coincidence? Ya think.

  • OP2

    Prison in the US harsh. That mentality and behavior is man-made. It is not tolerated equally around the world. The US has the LARGEST prison rate in the WORLD.

    Corruption to profit off of human labor on the cheap while weakening the strength and unity of minority families [and individuals] drives the need for these for-profit jails and prisons aka modern-day slave camps for cheap labor.

    Unlike other first world countries, rehabilitating (educating, job training while correcting negative behaviors and dysfunctional mentalities) the incarcerated is not their goal. -who created & forever pushing the rape mentality on US prison remains to be examined.

    Black folks in the US did started that prison rape mentality. They were conditioned and forced to be that way by those who put them there. In muslim countries, that behavior is not tolerated unless a prisoner is willing to suffer the dire consequence.

    Why is it that more drugs exists or easily available in US prisons? Yet, there are paid security guards? Not hard to figure out how the drugs are getting there.

  • OP2

    Then, the news articles also added that by the time he got to hospital his time of death is 4:07pm. 4 meaning hit and 7 meaning lucky or lucky hit? -the things people say. lol

  • OP2

    Not hard to do the research and find out what her sister had to say about why he killed her bf and anything else in question can be g00gled. Just start with a phrase, add keywords (verbs and nouns) and the person’s name or part of the name and see what it yield. -don’t wait for other people to do it for you… lol

  • Mrs. ??????????

    He didn’t pulled the trigger. Aaron was simply in the wrong time at the wrong place.

  • AListDiva29

    Why are so many black people defending him, when he killed a black man in cold blood? He was going to spend the rest of his life in prison anyways, so doesn’t matter if he’d dead or alive! He caused a lot of grief to his victim’s family, plus ruined his own! The only person I feel sorry for his little girl.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So Hernandez decides to take time to scrawl John 3:16 on his forehead but not write a suicide note at least to his daughter?

    When did Hernandez get religion any way?

    And how does someone as tall as Hernandez hang himself from a curtain rod?

    He would have broken it since he does look as if he is still well over 200lbs.

  • SuperScooper1

    No I understand, but I’ve found out details on local news stories in certain areas (The Papini Case and their alleged swinging and the missing girls in DC and the alleged collusion of the CPS workers) that I wouldn’t have without asking what people know in the area. It’s all good, knowledge is knowledge, and I’m more likely to believe regular people rather than the mainstream media as of late.

  • 1shy112

    That synthetic weed is nothing to play with… it gets into these prisons and jails all the time somehow, cause it doesn’t give off a strong weed smell at all. Makes you do crazy things. It’s really not even weed it’s a mixture of a bunch of stuff.

  • imright

    as soon as i heard he had Caseys old lawyer i knew he would walk. his last case is proof of that. “they” couldnt have him get away…

  • 2gr8ful

    More likely than not however the premise of the first conviction was that he killed Odin to keep him quiet about the murders he was just acquitted of. Honestly that recent case was weak from the jump so I am not surprised he was found not guilty. What is puzzling is that his acquittal would have given Jose Baez substantial grounds for a good appeal thus hope so him committing suicide a few days after a ray of hope is fishy……….

    I am sure his girlfriend is in pain because that girl stood by him from day one even when faced with legal repercussions and estrangement with her sister (Odin’s girlfriend) she was ride or die for her man no matter what, so sad….

  • nich

    She could get away tho and everything is fine. I don’t have sympathy for killers by no means. Its just the double standards are sometimes painfully obvious.

  • latinarenee

    from other reports he wrote “John 3:16”, not the entirety of the verse….
