Report: Hernandez Found With Famous Bible Verse Written On Forehead
Did convicted killer Aaron Hernandez find faith before he committed suicide?
Or, was the John 3:16 bible verse and the open bible in his cell that was turned to that same scripture a set up meant to be a distraction from what some are suggesting is not a suicide at all, but a jailhouse murder? The Sun is reporting:
Investigators are also said to be looking into the possibility that Hernandez had taken synthetic cannabis, which can cause hallucinations and put users into a terrifying “zombie” trance.
The report claims Hernandez had the verse John 3:16 written in red marker pen on his hands and feet, with his bible was open on that page.
The 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.”
Sources told WBZ one of the last people to see Hernandez alive was a close friend who is now in isolation on suicide watch.
It comes after the former sportsman’s lawyer claimed he may not have committed suicide and could have been MURDERED.
Jose Baez, who helped Hernandez beat a brutal double murder charge, is launching an investigation into his client’s death, reports TMZ.
According to the sensational report, Baez believes the former New England Patriots player could have allegedly been killed by inmates or prison staff.
He says Hernandez, who was found hanged in his jail cell, “was not in the frame of the mind” to commit suicide, according to TMZ.
Baez told TMZ Sports that his client was hopeful of overturning the life sentence which he was serving for a 2013 murder.
Former Patriots tight-end Hernandez was found hanged in his prison cell just days after being acquitted of a 2012 double-killing.
The 27-year-old was cleared of the double slaying which was sparked after an argument over a spilled drink at a nightclub, but was still serving a separate life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd in 2013.

A statement from the Department of Correction read: “Mr Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population unit.
Where ever the truth lies in this matter, and maybe we will never know, but it will not change the fact that this is a case of two lives Hernandez sadly cut short, the very first is of his victim in 2015 Odin Lloyd and ultimately his own wasted life. -W.E.
