Prison spokesman says Aaron Hernandez didn't appear suicidal, left no note

Among the questions that will be asked in the wake of Aaron Hernandez’s suicide inside his prison cell Wednesday morning is how authorities could have let it happen. A spokesman for Massachusetts prisons said Hernandez’s suicide was a surprise to them. Assistant deputy commissioner of communications Christopher Fallon told the Associated Press that officials had no concern about that the former New England Patriots tight end committing suicide. The AP said Hernandez would have been transferred to a mental health unit if officials were concerned about him taking his own life.
