Hernandez was upbeat, spiritual before death: court papers

Former New England Patriots football star Aaron Hernandez had been upbeat and appeared increasingly spiritual to his fellow prison inmates in the days before he hanged himself in his cell, according to court documents released on Friday. The documents, which include the first published excerpt of one of the notes that Hernandez left behind in his cell, are based on interviews with fellow inmates at the Massachusetts prison where he had been serving a life sentence for murdering an acquaintance. Hernandez's suicide last month stunned his loved ones, according to family attorneys, because it came just days after he been found not guilty of a 2012 double murder.
