Judge orders Aaron Hernandez suicide evidence preserved
The Associated Press
A Massachusetts judge says he's issuing an order preserving evidence in Aaron Hernandez's prison suicide.
Bristol Superior Court Judge Thomas McGuire says it's only fair that the ex-NFL star's family, the government and the public know exactly how he died.
Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez, filed court papers Wednesday on behalf of his estate.
She asks that prison officials be barred from altering or destroying any potential evidence, including Hernandez's writings, video and audio recordings and medical records.
The former New England Patriots tight end was found hanged in his cell in a maximum-security prison early Wednesday. He was serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder.
