    Because of a legal rule called "abatement", he's pretty much correct.

    Wrong on so many levels. You are confusing his acquittal charges last week from him actually being convicted for 1st degree murder of Odin Lloyd back In 2013.

    Just saw that this is true based upon some archaic "abatement" rule in MA

    How did he have a clean record if he was convicted a few years ago?? He was going to appeal but still he was found guilty for 1st degree murder.

    He didn't go through the appeal process yet, so by legal rule he died innocent.

    His wording is incorrect, but technically he's right. He died before his appeal, so because of the abatement rule he died innocent.

    What?? How can he die innocent if he was convicted a few years back?? I'm not sure how this whole appeal process work but why take so long to even appeal if you were innocent to begin with?? Hernandez's DNA was all over the murder scene of Odin Lloyd.

    Wow........Even after being convicted?? I guess we will truly find out soon enough if it was suicide or murder.
