It's unknown at this time whether he left a suicide note, the spokesman said.

Thompson noted that Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III's office could challenge the motion to vacate the conviction.

Thompson, citing lawyer-client privilege, declined to say when he last met with Hernandez.

"The family and legal team is shocked and surprised at the news of Aaron's death", Baez said in a statement.

"Those who love and care about him are heartbroken and determined to find the truth surrounding his untimely death", Baez continued.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady skipped his team's meeting with then-President Barack Obama in 2015. It's the end of a star-crossed life that peaked with a multi-million dollar contract in the National Football League, and sank to a sentence of life in prison for murder. As noted by Boston.com's Gary Dzen, he was just on trial for a double murder shooting before Lloyd's death, in 2012, but he was acquitted less than a week ago. Just before his acquittal, Hernandez was seen blowing kisses to the little girl he fathered with fiancīŋŠe Shayanna Jenkins. "I had never been involved in a case with so much reasonable doubt".

The New England Patriots learned of former tight end Aaron Hernandez's apparent suicide as they prepared to go to the White House to celebrate their fifth Super Bowl title.

January 1, 2012: He sets a career best with 138 receiving yards in a win over Buffalo. Abreu and Furtado were killed a vehicle after leaving a Boston nightclub in July 2012, weeks before Hernandez reported to Patriots camp ahead of his third and final season with the Patriots. He was drafted by NFL's New England Patriots as the 15th pick in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Bradley files a lawsuit alleging that Hernandez shot him after they argued at a strip club.

A jogger found Lloyd's gunshot-riddled body in a MA industrial park less than a mile from Hernandez's home on June 17, 2013. The Patriots released him nine days after Lloyd's body was found. He later pleads not guilty. The team dropped the tight end hours after his arrest on June 26, 2013. He was found guilty of first-degree murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, and unlawful possession of ammunition.

The principle that now comes into play in the Hernandez case stems from English common law, Healy said, and is observed by several of the older states in the nation.
