More details have emerged after the sudden passing of Aaron Hernandez after he took his own life by hanging himself in his cell.

Aaron Hernandez reportedly had spoken with his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, just mere hours before he was found dead in his prison cell in, according to Travis Andersen and John R. Ellement of the Boston Globe.

“She spoke to him until telephone hours were over at about 8 [p.m.],” Ronald Sullivan, one of Hernandez’s lawyers, told Andersen and Ellement in an email Thursday.

Despite being found not guilty on the double-murder charges on Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado just last week, Hernandez still had an uphill battle as he was in the process of appealing his murder conviction of Odin Lloyd, which put him behind bars with a life sentence.
