Tests showed no trace of synthetic marijuana or "K2" or any illegal drugs in Aaron Hernandez's system at the time of his death, WCVB-TV in Boston reported.
Hernandez, the former Patriots tight end who was serving a life sentence for murder, hanged himself in his jail cell and was found dead April 19 at a Massachusetts prison. He had been acquitted on a double-murder in Boston days earlier.
Newsweek had reported that an autopsy showed K2, a form of synthetic marijuana, in Hernandez's system. Sources told the WCVB that Hernandez used his own blood to draw a pyramid image, similar to the "all-seeing eye of God" that's on the back of US currency, on the walls of his cell. Hernandez also wrote the word “illuminati” in capital letters under the pyramid.
The TV station also reported that there was no letter to a gay prison lover found in the cell, as Newsweek had previously reported. The three letters found were addressed to his fiance, his 4-year-old daughter and his lawyers.
