In the report released by state police, it states Hernandez’s right middle finger had a fresh cut and there was blood on adjacent fingers. He also wrote “John 3:16” on his forehead and created circles of blood on both feet, possibly imitating the marks that would have been left on Jesus’s feet if he were hanging from a cross.

Police also found “John 3:16” written on the walls of his cell, possibly from blood he used from a self-inflicted cut on his finger. Near the wall police also found a bible opened to the John 3:16 verse that was also marked in blood, shown in the photo in this article.

Correction officers told investigators Hernandez was locked in his cell approximately 8 p.m. on April 18 with one officer last seeing Hernandez about five hours later at 1 a.m.

A few hours later, the same officer noticed a bed sheet hanging in front of the window, blocking the view into Hernandez’s cell. The officer said he asked Hernandez to remove the sheet. The officer poked at the sheet until it fell to get a view and discovered Hernandez hanging from another bed sheet from the window.

Police said they listened to the last five phone calls Hernandez made and the prisoner did not make any indication he would harm himself.

One of the inmates also told police that Hernandez told him that when you die your soul gets reincarnated. Other parts of the report also indicate Hernandez may have also been aware of the fact if he died in prison with his open appeal happening then his case would get thrown out.

After all the speculation, this case seems pretty cut and dry; although his attorney Jose Baez vowed to have his company do its own investigation.

This athlete’s life took quite a turn after he signed a $40 million contract with the best team in the NFL.
