He also allegedly left a Bible in his cell on to that verse, according to CBS Boston. The verse has been referred to as 'The Gospel in a Nutshell'. Investigators are also said to be looking at the possibility that Hernandez smoked K2 synthetic marijuana before taking his own life
He was already serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez's finance.
That's the same drug he was said to be smoking the night of Lloyd's murder. The chemical composition of the drug has been linked to psychotic episodes, collapses and seizures among users.
The investigative team is also looking at a 22-year-old friend and fellow inmate of Hernandez's who is believed to be the last person to see him alive. That particular inmate is now under suicide watch.
The fresh developments came after it was suggested Hernandez may have - inadvertently or intentionally - cleared his own name by committing suicide early this morning. Under a long-standing state legal principle, courts customarily vacate the convictions of defendants who die before their appeals are heard.

There are also speculations that he killed himself so that the families of his victims can't sue his estate. With him being dead, everything goes to his fiancé, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez and their daughter, Avielle Janelle Jenkins-Hernandez.
