Three handwritten notes were discovered in the cell were Aaron Hernandez hanged himself, leading investigators to officially declare his death a suicide. The notes were discovered next to a Bible opened to John 3:16, the same verse that Hernandez had written across his forehead in marker. That verse reads: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
This comes as DailyMail.com has learned exclusively that Hernandez was planning his suicide for weeks. The former football star even gave away most of his personal belongings to fellow inmates and covered the floor of his cell in soap, according to a well-paced source. If he lost his nerve he wouldn’t be able to save himself as he would slip around and not be able to land firmly on his feet.
