“Lifesaving techniques were attempted on Mr. Hernandez, and he was transported to UMass Leominster, where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m.,” the department said in a statement.

Hernandez was still serving a life sentence for the murder of his friend Odin Lloyd in 2013.

Hernandez was discovered Wednesday morning in his cell after he “attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items,” presumably so he couldn’t be rescued.

He was staying in a single cell in general population, according to the statement.
