NEWTON, MASS., APRIL 20, 2017.....Gov. Charlie Baker said he doesn't want to jump to any conclusions about the prison suicide of Aaron Hernandez until the investigation by the Department of Correction is complete.

"There are a million rumors flying out there and I've probably heard all the same ones you've heard, but at this point they're nothing but rumors. None of them have been substantiated," Baker told reporters after an affordable housing and energy efficiency event in Newton on Thursday. He said, "Until the investigation is completed I think people should be careful about jumping to conclusions about anything."
