Bristol county sheriff: 'Highly unlikely' Aaron Hernandez's death involved foul play

Bristol county sheriff Thomas Hodgson wouldn't rule out foul play in Aaron Hernandez's death with absolute certainty. But he certainly seemed confident Hernandez's apparent suicide was, indeed, a suicide.

"Certainly, there's always the possibility that something different could happen," Hodgson said Wednesday on CSNNE's Boston Sports Tonight. "I think we have to wait for the state police's independent investigation to come out. They'll do a thorough job. They always do. Based on what I know so far and the things that I've seen, it's highly unlikely that that was the case, particularly because he had barricaded himself inside his cell, which is an indication he didn't want anyone to get to him in time -- that this was something he wanted to make happen and be sure that it was carried out."

Hernandez was found hanged in his cell at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass. early Wendesday morning, according to a statement from the Massachusetts Department of Corrections. He was set to serve a life sentence for his murder of Odin Lloyd. He was just days removed of a jury finding him not guilty for a 2012 double murder.

Foles, who beat the Patriots in Super Bowl LII, got a $2 million signing bonus and will now have a mutual option for the 2019 season.
