The report didn’t specify why Hernandez was placed under suicide watch, although it is not uncommon for prisoners who have just been sentenced to lengthy prison terms.
Hernandez also had a troubled history in the facility where he ultimately took his own life.
In May, 2015, Hernandez agreed to be the lookout for another inmate who went into another prisoner's cell at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center. Those two inmates got into a fight which was believed to be gang-related, the report said.
At the time, all three men were disciplined over the incident, including Hernandez, who was put in a special management section.
Hernandez previously got into a brawl with a fellow detainee in the Bristol County jail.
