John 3:16 is one of the most important verses of the Christian faith because it guarantees salvation through faith in Jesus. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,” it reads.

An official police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, revealed that Hernandez smeared this verse on a wall with his blood and wrote it on his forehead in ink before he took his own life. The report also noted that a Bible was also left open to the passage “John 3:16” with a blood mark next to the 16th verse.

Hernandez was serving a life sentence in the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Massachusetts for the murder of Odin Lloyd. The week before he was found dead in his cell, he was acquitted of an additional double homicide.

As previously reported, Hernandez tried to jam his cell door so that nobody could enter the cell to save him and also covered the floor in shampoo so he couldn’t save himself.

He was found hanging by a bed sheet in his cell at around 3 a.m. on April 19. Attempts were made to revive the former NFL player, but were ultimately unsuccessful.
