Aaron Hernandez died by suicide Wednesday, less than a week after a jury cleared him of committing a double murder in 2012.
The former New England Patriots tight end was already serving a sentence of life without parole for another murder in 2013. Massachusetts state police have launched an investigation into Hernandez's death, which authorities say occurred early Wednesday at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.
