The night of his suicide April 19, prison guards attempted to revive him with "multiple staff rotating" using CPR right after he was found hanging from bed sheets at 3:03 a.m.in his cell, #57, at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Lancaster, the report states.
Not only was "John 3:16" written in red marker on Hernandez's forehead, as was previously reported, but "John 3:16" was also written on the wall in his cell, with one difference: On the wall, the words were written in blood. The words were an apparent references to the Bible verse that begins "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son". Breau called into the cell and told Hernandez to remove the sheet or at least call out.
Hernandez had been serving a sentence of life in prison for the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd. "Another source stated that Hernandez had recently mentioned a rumor".
Investigators determined with a "reasonable degree of certainty" that the letters found in Hernandez's cell were written by him, the report states.
Hernandez had also placed "a large amount of shampoo on the floor" inside his cell, making it very slippery, according to the report.
However, Hernandez had blocked the door, making it hard for the guard to open.
The red marks on Hernandez resulted from a fight in his cell on May 17, 2015, one of several brawls he would engage in during his time behind bars, according to the prison records.
The report described interviews with inmates who said that in the days before his death, Hernandez appeared happy about his acquittal and seemed to be looking forward to the future. This update contradicts a previous report which claims Hernandez had used synthetic marijuana hours before killing himself.
Did Hernandez know that his murder conviction could be overturned by a MA law now that he is dead?
