"Absolutely no chance he took his own life."
Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his jail cell this morning from what authorities say was a suicide, though not everyone is convinced of that.
According to reports, correction officers found Hernandez at around 3:00 am this morning hanging from bed sheets that he had fastened to one of the bars on his window.
However, Hernandez's former agent, Brian Murphy, says there's "absolutely no chance he took his own life."

Aaron Hernandez's attorney also added that there were no indications that he was contemplating suicide, and was looking forward to a second chance at proving his innocence.
According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, one of Aaron's former teammates also shared those same beliefs, saying point blank, "I am not buying it."
