April 19, 2017

Five days after being acquitted on double murder charges, convicted murder and former Patriots player Aaron Hernandez was found hanging inside his state prison cell and was pronounced dead shortly after in what prison officials say appears to have been a suicide. Hernandez was serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd—a conviction which is under appeal.

Northeastern University law professor and WGBH legal analyst Daniel Medwed and national NFL reporter for the Boston Globe, Ben Volin joined Adam Reilly to discuss what Hernandez’s death means and where his case goes from here.
