BOS­TON - An in­ves­tiga­tive re­port on the sui­cide of exNFL star Aaron Her­nan­dez has con­firmed he wrote a ref­er­ence to a bib­li­cal pas­sage in ink on his fore­head and in blood on the wall of his prison cell.

The for­mer New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots tight end was found April 19 hang­ing from a bed sheet at the Souza-Bara­nowski max­i­mum-se­cu­rity prison, where he was serv­ing a life sen­tence in a 2013 mur­der. His sui­cide came five days after he was ac­quit­ted in a 2012 dou­ble slay­ing. A re­port re­leased by state po­lice Thurs­day says “John 3:16” was writ­ten on Her­nan­dez’s fore­head and on the cell wall.

The pop­u­lar Bi­ble pas­sage says: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only be­got­ten Son, that whoso­ever be­lieveth in him should not per­ish, but have ev­er­last­ing life.”
