Legal Expert: Hernandez Attorney Bringing Up CTE To Get Money From NFL

In this December 12, 2005 photo, Aaron Hernandez poses for a photo in Bristol, Conn. Hernandez, a former National Football League star, who was serving a life sentence for a murder conviction and Friday, April 14, 2017, was acquitted. Even so, he says one death is one too many.

They have yet to release the incident report, officers' logs, video footage from the area around Hernandez's cell and other details about prison protocol, despite repeated requests from The Associated Press. The medical examiner's office didn't immediately comment on the brain dispute and hasn't released the results of its autopsy.

The court filing was signed the same day as Hernandez was found hanged in his prison cell at Souza-Baranowski Correction Center in Shirley, Mass.

Aaron Hernandez's brain is being turned over to his family after his lawyer accused authorities in MA of "illegally" keeping it from them, NBC News reports.

Baez is vowing to leave no stone unturned in his investigation.

The 5,800-square-foot, five-bedroom, seven-bathroom house he bought near Gillette Stadium for $1.3 million in 2012 is still up for sale.

Mr. Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population housing. It was put on the market for $1.5 million in 2016. The Internal Revenue Service has a $117,000 lien on the property.

The Medical Examiner's Office released a statement in response saying, "The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is conducing an investigation into the circumstances of Aaron Hernandez's death, which may require further analysis of his body". The Massachusetts State Police are on scene and the investigation continues.

BU's CTE Center refused to comment on the matter Thursday.

Authorities offered few answers after Hernandez was found hanging from a bedsheet Wednesday in his cell in a maximum-security prison in MA, where he was serving a life sentence for the 2013 slaying of a onetime friend.

Last week, Hernandez was acquitted in the 2012 drive-by shootings of two men in Boston.

Fallon said he was not aware of any suicide note and officials had no reason to believe Hernandez was suicidal.

Hernandez's body was released to the Faggas Funeral Home in Watertown, Massachusetts, after an autopsy.

The couple had a 4-year-old daughter together.

Hernandez was found dead in his cell Wednesday, days after being acquitted in a 2012 double homicide case. She says the body will be shipped to another location, but she declined to say where.
