Family, friends attend Aaron Hernandez funeral


Mourners gathered for Aaron Hernandez's funeral in Bristol, Connecticut on the afternoon of April 24.

"We believe that a well-reasoned court will protect the rights of innocent, grieving family members like Ursula Ward and allow us to proceed with our wrongful-death case directly", Sheff said.

As a result of a court hearing Monday, copies of Hernandez's suicide notes were to be released to his family.

Hernandez, 27, was discovered by guards in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center early last Wednesday and he was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

On Monday, Hernandez's defense attorney Jose Baez indicated to TMZ that he had not ruled out the involvement of foul play in his client's death.

Aaron Hernandez reportedly left three handwritten notes before he hanged himself in prison. Several days before his passing, he was acquitted of a 2012 double murder.

Hernandez, who was serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, hanged himself in his cell on April 19.

Attorney George Leontire, who is representing Hernandez's estate, was furious the family was not told about the three notes Hernandez left behind.

About his fake passport and identity, Baglay said, "We can not ascertain anything since we did not have any consular access. A Field General Court Martial awarded the death sentence to Jadhav and Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa confirmed it.

"I'm not going to turn my back on Aaron Hernandez", Spikes said.

NBC News' Daniella Silva reported Monday a judge released the letters to Hernandez's family.

Hernandez's mother, Terri Hernandez, strayed onto the historic funeral home's wraparound porch prior to her son's service to smoke a cigarette.

The Associated Press left messages for Early's office seeking comment on the filing.

Police closed Lincoln Avenue to traffic Monday morning and kept media crews off the property.

The burial will be private at an undisclosed location, and the timing of that was unclear.

The judge granted the request filed on Jenkins-Hernandez's behalf despite an ongoing investigation into the circumstances of his death.

Hernandez's brain was taken to Boston University where scientists will study it for any signs of repeated trauma he may have suffered while playing football. According to sources, the inmate is now on suicide watch at the maximum-security Souza-Baranowski Corrections Center in Shirley, Mass.
