Aaron Hernandez committed suicide in his prison cell on Wednesday morning, the Massachusetts Department of Corrections said.

Police found the former NFL star hanging in his single-unit cell at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.

The 27-year-old's death comes five days after he was acquitted of murdering two men in Boston in 2012. He was already serving life in prison for a separate murder.

Police found the former NFL star hanging in his cell at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, on Wednesday morning

'Mr. Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population unit,' a statement from the DOC said. 'Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bedsheet that he attached to his cell window.

'Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items.'

Massachusetts State Police are investigating the incident, and his family has been notified.

Hernandez, a Connecticut native, was cleared on Friday of killing two men in Boston in 2012.

The former New England Patriots star was accused of killing Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in a drive-by shooting in July 2012 in Boston's South End after an altercation outside a night club.

His fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez, and their four-year-old daughter attended court during jury deliberations, and Hernandez was seen blowing them kisses.

He had pleaded not guilty in the Massachusetts trial.

On Friday, the jury acquitted Hernandez on seven of eight charges after deliberating for 37 hours. He was convicted only on an illegal firearms charge.

The other charges against Hernandez included armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Hernandez was overcome with emotion as the verdict was read, moving his head from side to side, wiping his eyes and weeping.

Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said: 'We're disappointed. The jury just didn't see it our way.'

The decision came almost exactly two years after the former New England Patriots tight end was sentenced to life in prison without parole for murdering Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player in June 2013.

The 2015 conviction cemented a spectacular fall from grace for Hernandez, who once had a $40million, five-year contract with the Patriots.

The team dropped Hernandez just hours after his arrest on June 26, 2013, nine days after Lloyd was found dead.

Hernandez's death comes on the same day that his former team, the New England Patriots will visit President Donald Trump in the White House.

The team is the first championship team - after winning the Super Bowl - that Trump will host in Washington, DC.

Six players will not attend the visit: LeGarrette Blount, Alan Branch, Dont'a Hightower, Chris Long and Martellus Bennett have said they won't be attending.

All but Hightower have cited political reasons for not attending the event.

In 2015, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady skipped the White House visit with then-Presidnet Barack Obama, citing a family commitment.

Hernandez was an All-American tight end at the University of Florida and was named a Pro Bowl alternative in his second season in the NFL with the Patriots.

At 20 years old, he started the 2010 season as the youngest player on any active roster in the NFL.

July 16, 2012: Two men, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, are shot to death in their car as they wait at a red light in Boston's South End neighborhood.

Aug. 27, 2012: Hernandez signs a five-year, $40million contract with the New England Patriots.

February 2013: An associate, Alexander Bradley, is shot in the face in Florida. Bradley files a lawsuit alleging that Hernandez shot him after they argued at a strip club.

June 17, 2013: The body of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee, is found about a mile from Hernandez's mansion in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.

June 26, 2013: Hernandez is arrested on a murder charge in Lloyd's slaying and later pleads not guilty. The Patriots release him hours after his arrest.

May 15, 2014: Hernandez is indicted on two counts of first-degree murder and other charges in connection with the shootings of de Abreu and Furtado.

May 28, 2014: Hernandez pleads not guilty to charges in connection with the deaths of de Abreu and Furtado.

Jan. 9, 2015: Hernandez goes on trial for murder in Lloyd's killing.

April 15, 2015: Hernandez is convicted of first-degree murder; carries a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment.

Feb. 14, 2017: Hernandez goes on trial for murder in the 2012 killings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

April 7, 2017: The jury begins deliberating.

April 14, 2017: Hernandez acquitted of murder in the 2012 killings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

No big loss.

But a great story.

Talk about having it all and then throwing it all away.
