When Aaron Hernandez committed sucicde in prison last month he left behind three notes in his cell.
Until now the notes have remained private, but Friday afternoon Massachusetts Court officials released a note left for his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins. There is some information that has been redacted, but most of the note can be read.
You have always been my soul-mate and I want you to love life and know I’m always with you. I told you what was coming indirectly! I love you so much and know you are an angel – literally! We split into two to come change the world! Your characteristics is that of a true angel and the definition of God’s love! Tell my story fully but never think anything besides how much I love you. This was the Supreme’s, the Almighty’s plan, not mine! I love you! Let (redacted) know how much I love her! Look after (redacted) and (redacted) for me – they are my boys (you're rich). I knew I loved you = Savage Garden
Officials have confirmed in the past there were three notes left behind in Hernandez's cell, although they never specified who they were addressed to. Multiple reports have claimed a second note was left for his 4-year-old daughter.
The third note, however, has been a source of speculation for weeks. Some outlets have claimed it was for a gay lover, a fellow prison inmate described as a "close friend" hired an attorney to claim it was for him and TMZ Sports reported in April the note was left for Hernandez's attorney, Jose Baez.
The former Patriots tight end was in prison serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd. A few days before his death he was found not guilty for a double murder of two men in Boston.
