As friends and family gather to mourn the suicide of Aaron Hernandez, a judge has ordered the release of three suicide notes found in his cell.
A Bristol Superior Court judge ruled that the Worcester District Attorney's Office must produce copies of the notes and any that appeared to have been authorized by Hernandez in connection to his death.
Some redaction may be made to protect information which may impair an ongoing investigation.
The notes must be ready in time for Hernandez's funeral, which is scheduled for this afternoon in Bristol, Connecticut.
