Aaron Hernandez had gang ties in prison?

  Aaron Hernandez had gang ties in prison? 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.

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.

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?
