He left behind some pretty spaced-out artwork in his prison cell, but former NFL star Aaron Hernandez had no drugs in his system when he died, according to a report on Saturday.

The autopsy on the former New England Patriots tight end, who hanged himself last week, revealed no traces of “K2,” or synthetic marijuana — or any other illegal drugs in his system, according to Boston TV station WCVB.

Massachusetts officials were investigating whether Hernandez used synthetic drugs before he hanged himself in his cell at Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass., on April 19. The prison was locked down last week while correction officers searched for drugs and other contraband following the convicted murderer’s suicide, according to WCVB.

The search turned up K2 and several homemade weapons.

Hernandez had written “John 3:16” on his forehead in ink before his death, and used his own blood to draw on the walls of his cell.

One of the drawings was “the unfinished pyramid and the all-seeing eye of God,” similar to the illustration on the back of the dollar bill, according to WCVB.

Hernandez wrote “ILLUMINATI” in capital letters below the pyramid, and drew an oval with rays coming from its edges.

Three letters were also found in Hernandez’s cell, to his fiance, his daughter and his attorneys.

The station said in one letter, he wrote that he was entering the “timeless realm,” and would see them in heaven.
