Prison: Aaron Hernandez elated about acquittal, not suicidal

Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez was excited about his acquittal in a 2012 double slaying and did not appear to have thoughts of suicide in the days before he killed himself in his prison cell, according to a report from Massachusetts prison officials. The state Department of Correction report released Thursday also said there were no drugs in Hernandez's system when the former New England Patriots tight end hanged himself at the Souza-Baranowski prison on April 19 while serving a life sentence in a 2013 murder. Hernandez was found hanging from a bed sheet in his cell just five days after he was acquitted in the killings of two men in Boston in July 2012.
