Hernandez family planning private funeral in Connecticut

After the MA medical examiner ruled the death a suicide, Hernandez's brain was taken to Boston University, where scientists will study it for any signs of repeated trauma suffered during his years of playing football. Although reporter Ian Rapaport didn\u0027t think much of a comment at a time, he realizes now that when Hernandez told him, \"If you f**k me over, I\u0027ll kill you, \" it\u0027s possible he meant it more literally than Rapaport has assumed. The visitation and funeral will both take place inside the funeral home.

BRISTOL, Conn. - Aaron Hernandez's family is planning a private funeral for the former National Football League star in his CT hometown. If the purportedly romantic relationship was a motive for Lloyd's murder, it is unclear why this was not reported until after Hernandez's death. Hernandez was already serving a life sentence for the 2013 first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez left three notes in his prison cell before he hung himself last week - one to his fiancee, one to his daughter, and one to his prison boyfriend, who is now on suicide watch, according to Newsweek.

Hernandez left behind notes for his fiancée, his daughter, and a close prison friend that law enforcement sources described as his boyfriend. Law enforcement officials told Newsweek that his identity came to light after Hernandez allegedly moved a large amount of money into the man's bank account following the Lloyd murder.

Investigators now reportedly want to know if Hernandez killed Lloyd so as to prevent him from revealing details of the Patriot star's sex life to his girlfriend, who might then pass the information to Hernandez's fiancee.

When Hernandez's body was discovered this week - the same day his former teammates traveled to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win in February - he had a Bible verse scrawled on his forehead and red ink on his hands and feet, imitating the stigmata.
