Hernandez's body will be moved to the O'Brien Funeral Home in Bristol Connecticut. Hernandez's boyfriend, who has not been named by the media, is under suicide watch.
It's hard to say whether Hernandez was actually being serious when he said that to Rapoport, but the pattern of behavior from the former tight end suggests there may have been some validity to his words.
Serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for murder, details suggest that Hernandez had killed Lloyd to hide his bisexuality and that he had a gay lover in prison up until his death. Multiple law enforcement sources have confirmed that Lloyd knew about Hernandez's sexuality, with The New York Daily News positing from Newsweek reports that this could have been a factor in Lloyd's murder.
"The family of Aaron Hernandez wishes to thank all of you for the thoughtful expressions of condolences", the statement said.

Reuters/Mike GeorgeNew England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is arraigned on charges of murder and weapons violations in Attleborough, Massachusetts, after being arrested, June 26, 2013.
To show how intent Hernandez was on killing himself, he jammed cardboard into the frame of his cell door to prevent guards from rushing to aid him. Furthermore, Ernest Wallace-who was Hernandez's co-defendant in the Lloyd murder case-reportedly told detectives that Hernandez killed Lloyd shortly after Lloyd called him a "schmoocher", which Hernandez took to be a gay slur.
About an hour after he was found, Hernandez was pronounced dead at UMass-Memorial Health Alliance Hospital in Leominster, according to a statement from the Massachusetts Department of Correction. The notes were placed next to a Bible that was opened to the page containing John 3:16, according to Newsweek.

The key question is WHY did Hernandez throw everything away and kill Lloyd and leave his bullet riddled body in a suburban Boston industrial park has remained a mystery, even after an extensive 2015 trial.
