If you listen to Aaron Hernandez’s agent, he’s totally not buying the fact that the former Pats tight end hung himself early on Wednesday morning in prison.
Brian Murphy sent out the following tweet about the turn of events for the former Patriots pass catcher.
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.

Hernandez, who was serving a life sentence for a murder conviction, was found dead about 3am this morning and according to Department of Correction spokesman Christopher Fallon he hung himself using his bed sheet.
“Mr. Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population unit,” the statement said. “Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bedsheet that he attached to his cell window. Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items.”
He was pronounced dead at UMass Memorial-HealthAlliance Hospital in Leominster about an hour later.
