He was convicted of murder in 2013 and was serving a life sentence in the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, which was named for two prison workers who were killed in an escape attempt in 1972.
No date has been set for the civil trial. An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the exact cause of death.
Furtado's father, Salvatore Furtado, appeared publicly with his attorney to react to Hernandez's death.
He says Hernandez was looking forward to an opportunity for a second chance to prove his innocence in the 2013 slaying of Odin Lloyd.
Just last week Hernandez was acquitted in the 2012 shooting deaths of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu.
Hernandez's lead defense attorney Jose Baezsaid his office will conduct its own investigation.
Hernandez played for the Patriots from 2010 to 2012 and he helped them reach the Super Bowl in his second year.
Hernandez's agent, Brian Murphy, tweeted that there was "absolutely no chance" Hernandez took his own life.

Facebook Killer Found Dead
"This started with one tragedy and ended with another person taking their own life", said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams. Facebook disabled Stephen's account shortly after receiving the first report about the video of the fatal shooting.
On Twitter, some people said the timing of his death was unusual because he had just been cleared of the two killings.
Hernandez was convicted in 2015 of murdering Lloyd and sentenced to life in prison.
"I think that if we look back at some of the things that are available to appeal on that case, I think there's a strong likelihood". He says Hernandez would have been transferred to a mental health unit if there was any concern about his well-being. He was now serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd, but the recent acquittal was believed to be crucial for Hernandez's appeal in the Lloyd case. According to new local news reports, he was found with a sliced open his finger and "John 3:16" written in blood-red marker on his forehead!
The former member of the New England Patriots reportedly hung himself with a bed sheet.
Hernandez attempted to barricade his cell door with various items. He was subsequently transported to UMASS Leominster where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. ET by a physician at the hospital.
As the Associated Press reported, prosecutors accused Hernandez of opening fire on their vehicle because he felt disrespected when one of the men bumped into him and spilled his drink at a Boston nightclub.
