Brothers Mike and Maurkice Pouncey, who were two of Aaron Hernandez’s biggest supporters throughout his murder trial, took to Instagram in the wake of his death to remember him.
The Pouncey twins wore “Free Hernandez” shirts in 2013 in support of their former Florida teammate who they played with from 2007-2009.
Hernandez, 27, was found dead in his prison cell early Wednesday morning. According to a statement by the Massachusetts Department of Correction, the former New England Patriot used a bed sheet attached to the window in his cell and that he had attempted to block the door.
The sports world was in complete shock after the news broke of Hernandez’s death. Hernandez’s attorney is calling for an investigation into his death. Meanwhile, Hernandez’s agent claims there’s ”Absolutely no chance he took his own life.”
