A homemade weapon was found in the prison cell of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez on Friday.
The weapon, which is described as a homemade knife or “shank” in the report was found in Hernandez’s cell at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley. Hernandez is currently serving a life sentence without parole after he was found guilty of first-degree murder in the 2013 death of Odin Lloyd.
This is not the first reported incident involving Hernandez since his arrest in 2013. Previous reports have indicated that Hernandez was involved in at least three physical confrontations with other inmates.
Hernandez was moved from general population to a “segregation unit,” according to the same reports.
