Family asking judge for order on Aaron Hernandez evidence

Hernandez left three notes in his prison cell before he hung himself last week - one to his fiancee, one to his daughter, and one to his prison boyfriend, who is now on suicide watch, according to Newsweek.
That could lead to a payout of up to $6 million from the Patriots regarding the team's contract with Hernandez, Sheff said. Hernandez's argument arises from the notion that he earned the payments, and that the Patriots cut him immediately after he was arrested for killing Odin Lloyd, instead of waiting for the league to suspend him.
Investigators are probing former National Football League star Aaron Hernandez's bisexuality as a possible motive for murder.
In previous court papers, the Boston Globe reported, Leontire wrote that Hernandez's family plans to investigate all the circumstances of his death and a second, independent autopsy was conducted on Thursday. Because of a little-known legal rule called abatement, the murder conviction against Hernandez is expected to be dismissed because his appeal of the conviction had not been heard at the time of his death.

Under Massachusetts law, his murder conviction is now voided because he had not exhausted all of his appeals at the time of his passing.
RadarOnline.com learned that the former New England Patriots star's guilty conviction will be voided following his suicide. It asked that prison officials be barred from altering or destroying any potential evidence, including Hernandez's writings, video and audio recordings and medical records. The 27-year-old was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
According to Newsweek, investigators found three notes near Hernandez's body after he hanged himself inside of his jail cell on Wednesday.
