Bible reference written in blood on wall of ex-NFLer Hernandez cell – police

Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez was found with a reference to a Bible verse written in blood on the wall of the prison cell where he hanged himself last month, a state police report released on Thursday said. Police noted that an autopsy found no signs that the former National Football League tight end, who was serving a life prison term for killing an acquaintance at the time of his death, had any illegal drugs in his system. The words "John 3:16," a reference to the Gospel verse that begins "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son," were written on Hernandez's forehead in ink when prison officials found his body, the Massachusetts State Police report said.
