New information has come out on the suicide of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez, and there are some interesting details about the manner in which he took his own life.
The Massachusetts State Police have recently released a report that says Hernandez's death mimic that of the biblical crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
Prior to using a bed sheet to hang himself, Hernandez apparently made a small cut on his right middle finger and used his own blood to draw little circles on each of his feet. These markings are consistent with images of Jesus' feet after he was hung on a cross.
Also, Hernandez is said to have used a red pen to write John 3:16 on his forehead. John 3:16, probably the most recognizable bible verse, says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
It is a scripture that, depending on the interpretation, assures eternal life for anyone who recognizes Jesus Christ as the Son of God, regardless of their choices in life.
Additionally, the report stated that Hernandez had left a Bible on a table in his cell and it was left open to John 3:16, with the verse marked in blood.
“John 3:16” was also written in blood on the wall of his cell.
This new info comes on the heels of Hernandez's family issuing a statement about the number of case details that have seemingly been leaked from the prison he was held in.
The statement, directed to the Worcester district attorney’s office, read in part, "Individuals within the government who are leaking such information are in violation of the policies and procedures of their respective agencies and should be immediately terminated. Although most of the leaked information is false, the media credits such information because the leaks come from individuals with positions in government and law enforcement who are under your control."
At this time it does not appear that Hernandez's family has issued a statement regarding the new details.
