Transcript for Aaron Hernandez kills himself in prison
It's America's iced coffee, whenever, wherever. America Runs on Dunkin'. Re. Reporter: Good morning, George. Correction officers found him around 3:05:00 A.M. And hanged himself using his bedsheet attached to the window and blocked his door so people couldn't get in. There was an attempt to revive him but was pronounced dead. He was convicted of first degree murder and was serving a life sentence for the murder of his friend Odin Lloyd. Last week he stood trial for the murder of two other men, he was found not guilty and when the jury read the verdict he wiped away tears. Before his arrest in 2013, Hernandez was a rising young tight end with the new England patriots and helped them remain one of the most successful teams in history. Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked about Hernandez the other day. He replied with just one word, tragedy. Robin. Oh, never more so true than that. Pierre, thank you.
