Anonymous sources confirm to Newsweek that the body of the former NFL player, Aaron Hernandez, tested positive for the use of synthetic marijuana before his death. According to a law enforcement authority with direct knowledge of the case, the autopsy showed traces of the drug in a kidney fluid screen.

After the finding, inside the prison Hernandez committed suicide, an operation was immediately carried out by the Massachusetts State Police troopers to look for contraband, including paper soaked with the synthetic Marijuana known as K2. Hernandez was found dead in his cell on April 19 at 3:03 a.m., inmates at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center had told investigators that ex Patriots star may have been high on K2 the morning he killed himself. 

Another news that developed around the death of Hernandez, was the appearance of the supposed lover of Aaron in the jail. The football player was allegedly holding a relationship with Kyle Kennedy. The lawyer for Kennedy confirmed that his client was the intended recipient of one of the three letters found in the cell where Hernandez hanged himself.
 
"My client is obviously saddened by the loss of his friend, Aaron Hernandez," Larry Army, Jr. said in a statement released on Monday, April 24. "A letter was left to my client but neither I, nor my client, have seen the letter. We will be requesting that the letter be turned over to my client as soon as possible."

According to reports Kennedy is a 22-year-old convicted armed robber arrested in 2015 for holding up a gas station with a large butcher knife.

After prosecutors in Worcester County, Massachusetts, confirmed the death of former NFL player as suicide, Hernandez's family decided to donate his brain to the Boston University Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy Center.
