Former New England Patriot and Florida Gator Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell Wednesday morning with more information being released all the time. Hernandez’s death was officially ruled a suicide as the autopsy came back with conclusive results that he did commit suicide.

One newspaper reporting on the Hernandez news had a really unfortunate error in their headline about Hernandez’s death by mixing up Aaron Hernandez with former New York Met Keith Hernandez.

As Sports Illustrated’s Mike Harris points out, this could have been avoided with a little proofreading.

This mixup appeared in the Brandon Sun, a newspaper in Manitoba, Canada.
