In her first public appearance since the death of fiancé Aaron Hernandez, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez told Dr. Phillip McGraw that she doesn't think that Hernandez's death in his prison cell was a suicide, as authorities have ruled.
Aaron Hernandez's fiancée Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez is opening up on his death in an exclusive interview on "Dr. Phil".
Jenkins Hernandez also told Dr. Phil that she spoke with Hernandez the night before he was found dead in his cell.
It has also been reported that Hernandez spent at least two weeks planning his suicide, going so far as to give away his possessions, and carried it out despite being acquitted of two more murder counts just five days before he took his life.
Hernandez was in prison serving a life sentence after he was convicted in April 2015 of murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition for the June 2013 killing of Lloyd in North Attleboro, Massachusetts.
A MA prisons report says Aaron Hernandez was outwardly elated after his acquittal in a double murder trial and did not appear to have thoughts of suicide in the days before he killed himself in his prison cell.
According to Jenkins-Hernandez, she and the rest of Aaron's loved ones were completely shocked when the former Patriot was found guilty of murder.
She didn't offer an explanation for Hernandez's death if it wasn't a suicide and said she had no reason to believe anyone would want to kill him.
In fact, it has since been theorized that the real motivation for Lloyd's murder was that Lloyd knew about Hernandez's homosexual tendencies and threatened to tell Shayanna, who was his girlfriend's sister. I think he could have been saved.
"I felt like we were looking so bright". She pointed out, "I did see that it was addressed to Shay instead of, you know, babe or bae, the way he would refer me as - that was a little odd to me. He didn't have the best choice in some friends, but that doesn't make him a bad person", she said. She'd just spoken to him the night before he hung himself.
Jenkins didn't seem question what was written in the note, however. "She thought daddy was at work. she knows nothing about jail, prison".
It remains unclear whether Jenkins-Hernandez will receive a National Football League pension or other funds due to ongoing wrongful-death litigation.
"The letter screamed love but it wasn't personal or intimate and it was odd in some parts". "Until we can get in there and do our own investigation and I actually trust where the answers are coming from, maybe I can have some comfort in the truth".
As for the millions of dollars that Dr. Phil is going to ask Jenkins-Hernandez about, it'll definitely be interesting to hear what she has to say.
