    Notes found by ex-NFL star Hernandez's body turned over to family

    Three handwritten notes found by the body of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez following his suicide in a Massachusetts prison cell last week were handed over to his family on Monday, an official said. The order by a state judge in New Bedford, Massachusetts, to turn over the notes to the former National Football League player's family came on the same day as Hernandez's funeral, which was held in his hometown of Bristol, Connecticut, a spokesman for the Worcester County district attorney's office said.
