A dispute has emerged over the release of Aaron Hernandez's brain

A lawyer for former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez on Thursday accused the Massachusetts' medical examiner's office of reneging on a deal to turn over the athlete's brain to a Boston laboratory a day after he was found dead in his prison cell. The 27-year-old former National Football League star hung himself early on Wednesday in the prison cell where he was serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of an acquaintance, dying less than a week after he was cleared of a separate double-murder charge, according to state officials. Attorney Jose Baez, who successfully defended Hernandez in his most recent trial, on Thursday said that the state's Chief Medical Examiner's Office had turned over Hernandez' remains to his family but retained his brain.
