“Look, any time anybody kills themselves in a prison, something clearly went wrong,” the governor said. He added that he supports the leadership of the state Department of Correction.

Massachusetts has made strides in recent decades to improve mental health care and deter suicides in prison, but the rate of self-inflicted inmate deaths remains among the highest in the country.

“People have made progress on this issue,” Baker said. “But obviously, one is too many and we’ll investigate this thoroughly and make whatever adjustments we need to.”

He said he would not make decisions based on the early details and rumors surrounding the incident.

“I’m not going to draw any conclusions about this until the investigation is finished,” Baker said.

Hernandez, 27, was found hanging from a bedsheet by a corrections officer around 3:05 a.m. Wednesday in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley. Hernandez was serving a life sentence without parole for murder.

Newspaper confuses Keith Hernandez for Aaron in headline .
Don’t worry, folks. Keith Hernandez is alive and well contrary to what one newspaper would have you believe. According to Deadspin, The Brandon Sun in Canada reported on the death of Aaron Hernandez on Wednesday and ran an Associated Press version of the story. They decided to create their own headline but screwed up and wrote “Keith Hernandez.”Oops. Proofread folks, take the extra two minutes pic.twitter.com/7dIs7iGPrE— Mike Harris (@SIcomMike) April 20, 2017Keith Hernandez, of course, is the former Mets MVP first baseman, not the former Patriots tight end who was in prison for murder.
