Hernandez had reportedly gotten a new tattoo that referenced the Blood street gang after the fight, prison officials said.
That information comes from a joint statement from Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr., Massachusetts State Police Superintendent Col. Richard McKeon, and Secretary of Public Safety Daniel Bennett.
In case you forgot, the former New England Patriots tight end was convicted back in 2015 for murdering Odin Lloyd. Officials explained that he had also tried blocking his cell door from the inside by jamming it with several items to prevent it from being opened.
The medical examiner's office has not responded to a request for comment.
Hernandez was already serving a life sentence when he was acquitted.
"I'm not going to draw any conclusions about this until the investigation is finished", Baker said. He added that he supports the leadership of the state Department of Correction.
Baez had been helping Hernandez appeal his murder conviction, and as a result of his death before exhausting the legal process, that conviction will be voided. Otherwise, he would have been transferred to a mental health unit, Fallon said. Even so, he says one death is one too many.

"It is our position that they are holding Aaron Hernandez's brain illegally", Baez said. The DA said Hernandez's brain would also be released to his family so they could donate it to BU. But Baez says the office has not returned the brain.
Baez had earlier Thursday been furious over the delay over the release of the brain and had threatened to sue the state for possession.
After he was convicted of first-degree murder, Hernandez was moved to a single-inmate cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center, a maximum-security prison in Shirley, about an hour's drive from Boston.
While Simpson's life story continues to play out, Hernandez's life story has come to an end.
Hernandez had a $41 million contract with one of the league's top franchises when he was arrested at his home in June 2013 and charged with the fatal shooting. It was put on the market for $1.5 million in 2016.
Attorneys for Lloyd's mother have placed an attachment on the house as part of their civil lawsuit against Hernandez. The Internal Revenue Service has a $117,395 lien on the property.

He said: "This is a player who had not scored since September but I stuck with him and I stuck with him because I trust him". The same way I know what the players like, the players know what I like.
Prison officials said they are not aware of any suicide note written by Hernandez and they had no concern that Hernandez might take his own life.
There were no prior concerns that Hernandez was suicidal, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Department of Correction told ABC News.
Another person promising to investigate Hernandez's apparent suicide is his high-profile attorney, Jose Baez.
The couple had a 4-year-old daughter together. Before his acquittal, Hernandez on Wednesday was seen blowing kisses to the little girl he fathered with fiancée Shayanna Jenkins. She said the body will be shipped to another location, but she wouldn't say where.
Hernandez was found dead with the words "John 3:16" written on his forehead, according to a law enforcement source directly involved in the investigation into the former National Football League star's death. What happens to his estate? He was only 27 years old. At the White House event in the afternoon, Republican President Trump congratulated the Super Bowl champions but made no mention of Hernandez.
