  • Aaron Hernandez’s suicide: Were there warning signs?

    Boston Globe - 04/20/2017

    Richard Melloni Jr., a psychology professor and director of behavioral neuroscience at Northeastern University, said he was struck by video showing Hernandez’s rare display of tears last week when he was acquitted in the double murders.

    “Maybe his emotion was a sign of depression that was starting to rear its head,” said Melloni, who was not involved in Hernandez’s case.

    Hernandez’s death came the same day his former teammates were invited to the White House. But Melloni said it was unlikely a single factor spurred any decision to end his life. He may have been struggling with a multitude of problems, including mental health issues, according to Melloni.
