Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez has killed himself in prison, the Massachusetts Department of Correction said Wednesday.
"Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window," according to a Department of Correction statement, as reported by The Boston Globe . "Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items."
Hernandez was discovered in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, at about 3:05 a.m., according to The Globe. He was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. after being transported to UMass Leominster.
Last week, a jury found Hernandez not guilty of first-degree murder in the 2012 killings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. He was already serving a life sentence, however, for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd.
Hernandez, a tight end, played for the Patriots from 2010 to 2012.

Aaron Hernandez commits suicide in prison
The former Patriots tight end was discovered dead early Wednesday morning in his cell.
Aaron Hernandez , the former New England Patriots tight end convicted of murder in 2015, committed suicide in his Massachusetts prison cell , the Boston Globe reported Wednesday citing corrections officials.
Hernandez was serving a life term without the possibility of parole after a jury found him guilty of the 2013 first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd , a semi-pro football player. A statement from prison officials cited by Boston media indicates that Hernandez hung himself with a bedsheet overnight, was found by officers early Wednesday and was pronounced dead.
Hernandez, a Connecticut native, was an All-American tight end at the University of Florida and was named a Pro Bowl alternate in his second season in the NFL with the Patriots. He found himself in legal trouble repeatedly, however.
In 2013, Massachusetts State Police arrested Hernandez due to his suspected role in the murder of Lloyd.
Hernandez was recently found not guilty in a separate 2012 double-homicide in Boston.
