Earlier today Sports Illustrated reported through TMZ that Aaron Hernandez will remain in solitary confinement and not be moved to the general population. 

TMZ goes into further detail behind the decision from the Bristol County Jail:

As we previously reported, the alleged murderer was placed in solitary right after he was booked — fearing violent inmates might view the former NFL star as a “prize.” But officials vowed to review Aaron’s situation and would consider moving him if they felt it was safe.

But officials met yesterday and a rep for the jail tells TMZ … after serious discussion, they decided NOT to move Hernandez, believing it would be in his “best interest” to stay. The insinuation — he’s still in danger.

The jail rep says the ex-NFL star is “doing well” behind bars … and hasn’t had any problems so far.

As you can see there are no specific reasons for why they are keeping Hernandez in solitary confinement. Previous reports have speculated about whether or not any of Hernandez's tattoos were gang related, however, no affiliations have been made.
