There are many questions surrounding the unexpected death of Aaron Hernandez, and most of them will likely go unanswered. One of those questions involves whether or not Hernandez was affiliated with a gang while in prison, and it’s one that has come up many times since he was taken into custody for the murder of Odin Lloyd.

While it’s unclear if Hernandez belonged to a gang at the maximum security prison he was being held at in Shirley, Mass., one source told the Boston Globe that the former New England Patriot was “insecure” and stayed close to gang members.

Aaron Hernandez once told Ian Rapoport 'if you f--- me over, I'll kill you'

  Aaron Hernandez once told Ian Rapoport 'if you f--- me over, I'll kill you' When Aaron Hernandez was being investigated for murder, NFL reporter Ian Rapoport saw an interaction he had with Hernandez years earlier in a whole new light. The MMQB's Kalyn Kahler has a piece on Friday speaking with reporters who covered Aaron Hernandez at each stage of his football career. Rapoport, now with NFL Network, was the Patriots beat writer for the Boston Herald when New England selected Hernandez in the 2010 draft. Shortly after they first met, Herndandez threatened to kill Rapoport. The reporter was initially unsure whether to take Hernandez seriously, until Hernandez was suspected of killing Odin Lloyd. When we first exchanged numbers, he called me over and said, "Hey I just want you to know, you're my guy. If you need anything let me know, I will help you out if I can. But I just want you to know, if you f--- me over, I'll kill you." I sort of laughed a little bit, and I said, "Don't worry, I got you, I'll take care of you." It was me and this other reporter from CBS Sports, William Bendetson, and he was standing there and had listened and we kind of turned to each other and both laughed. And then the first text I got after it became clear that Hernandez was the suspect in the murder investigation was from William Bendetson, who was like, Hey remember that day in the locker room? • What legal impact could the potential discovery of CTE in Aaron Hernandez's brain have?​ Hernandez was convicted in the 2013 murder of Lloyd and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

After a body was found less than a mile from his home over a week ago, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been embroiled in a murder investigation and he could be facing life in prison for the shooting of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-professional football player.

[ Hernandez ] was just trying to show he’s down with the Bloods, a scared man looking at life in prison ,” said a source. So all of those prison movies and TV shows are true: you have to join a gang if you want to survive. Hey, what else does Aaron Hernandez have to look forward to?

A person with direct knowledge who spoke on condition of anonymity said that while many observers of Hernandez’s recent trial remarked on his stoic demeanor, within prison walls he was insecure and clung to gang members for approval.

He was not aloof with other inmates, this person said. Instead, he appeared eager to be “one of the boys.” He often sat and laughed or played basketball with gang members.

The same source told the Globe that Hernandez was placed on suicide watch after he was convicted in 2015 of killing Lloyd, but he must have been taken off at some point. Prison officials said Wednesday that Hernandez had given no indication he intended to harm himself.

Jail officials inspected Hernandez for tattoos that would indicate he was affiliated with gangs as soon as he was sentenced, but they didn’t find anything. However, the 27-year-old later got a tattoo that seemed to indicate he was associated with the Bloods.

Hernandez’s attorney insists his client would not take his own life, and he is launching an investigation to look into the death further.
