Former New England Patriot and convicted murderer committed suicide in his prison cell early this morning, just days after being found not guilty of two other murders.

Well, I hadn't turned on the news this morning, & I don't subscribe to newsfeeds (I have enough e-mail harrassment) so I really did "hear it here" 1st.

I would have convicted him of the murders in the most recent trial, based on the evidence I heard, but I was not on the jury.

Hernandez is a very big story here in Boston.

This following story is of much more importance:

Prosecutors will drop thousands of cases in Dookhan scandal

Prosecutors across the state on Tuesday said they would collectively throw out more than 20,000 cases that relied on evidence handled by a disgraced drug lab chemist, Annie Dookhan.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy.

From the Mass Bar Association: Under Mass law, Aaron Hernandez's murder conviction gets vacated since he died before his appeal was exhausted.

Odin Lloyd's family sued Hernandez for wrongful death. His other alleged victims' families may sue his estate. If his estate is larger because he's not a convicted felon, the families (and their lawyers) have a bigger pot to go after.

According to the local experts, Lloyd's family will essentially have to retry the case, instead of just referring to the guilty verdict. And the other families don't even have a guilty verdict to rebuild.

Of course, neither did OJ's victims' families, & they won damages.

I wonder if his death makes his retirement accounts subjest to creditor's claims

By retirement accounts, if you mean his NFL pension, that's a non-event. Like most pensions, you die, it's over (unless it's some kind of joint-and-survivor setup, which I doubt he had).

If he had anything like personal IRAs, I would suspect they may or not be in play, depending upon how things were set up. If they would go to a person as a beneficiary, that's outside of the estate so I'd say no. If it's not and just goes into his general estate, it well might. But that's my (limited) logic on this, and law is often illogical.

Apparently CTE is being blamed for his problems.

More than likely, it's his G-A-N-G.
