Report: Aaron Hernandez Had Bible Passage Written On Forehead, May Have Smoked K2 Before Suicide
The Aaron Hernandez suicide (or murder, according to his lawyer) has yet another new wrinkle in it.
Cops are probing whether the 27-year-old smoked synthetic marijuana such as K2 or “spice” before utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window to end his life on Tuesday night.
According to CBS Boston, sources say investigators believe one of the last people to see Hernandez is a close friend who is now in isolation on what is called “eyeball suicide watch.” The 22-year-old man is in the health service unit with a 24-hour watch with a correction officer and camera watching his every move.
The effects of K2 could explain the odd timing of Hernandez’s apparent suicide, as he had just been acquitted of a double murder five days earlier and was planning to appeal the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd in which he was slapped with a life sentence without parole. K2 is known to cause psychotic episodes, paranoia and intense hallucinations.
It has also been reported that Hernandez had the bible verse John 3:16 scrawled on his forehead when he was found dead, and red marker pen on his hands and feet.
The verse says that whoever believes in Jesus “shall not perish but have everlasting life.”
As TMZ points out, Hernandez has always been an outwardly religious person, or so it seemed. During his college football career at Florida and would read the bible with head coach Urban Meyer every morning at 7:30 AM.
I’m not sure all the praying in the world could save the dude’s soul.
