Aaron Hernandez lawyer: Claims of suicide note to prison lover are false

AP

Last week, after the family of Aaron Hernandez began to ask questions about the circumstances surrounding his death in prison, unnamed law enforcement sources began to leak that Hernandez was bisexual. The specific information reported by Newsweek was that one of the three notes Hernandez left in his cell was addressed to his prison lover. (Newsweek also reported that the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd may have been motivated by a desire to conceal that Hernandez was secretly dating a man.)

The family of Aaron Hernandez has received the notes left by Hernandez in his cell. Attorney Jose Baez has issued a statement on the matter.

“Rumors of letters to a gay lover, in or out of prison, are false,” Baez said. “These are malicious leaks used to tarnish someone who is dead. . . . Notwithstanding my unambiguous statement that there were no such letters, representatives, on behalf of an individual named Kyle Kennedy, continues to advise the media such a gay love letter exists. Accordingly, on behalf of the family of Aaron Hernandez, I am reaffirming, unequivocally, no such letter to Mr. Kennedy, or any other individual, in or out of prison, exists. l urge anyone continuing to spread these malicious untruths to cease immediately.”

This isn’t about the Baez or the Hernandez family expressing a judgment that homosexuality or bisexuality is wrong, and this isn’t about sympathy for a convicted murderer. This is about what appears to be an effort to create emotional turmoil for Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, the mother of his child and the person to whom he was engaged to be married.

It may not be a coincidence that the leaks emerged in the wake of pointed questions and concerns being raised about whether Hernandez actually committed suicide and whether the authorities followed proper procedures to protect him from himself. It may be a sign of things to come, if the tough questions continue to be asked. That’s what Baez is trying to put a stop to.

Complicating the situation is the fact that Kyle Kennedy’s lawyer has said that a letter was left for his client. Again, the Hernandez family has received all notes that were left by Hernandez, and Baez insists that it’s false.

  1. So to clarify, even though Kenndy’s family says there I a letter to him we are still going with ‘unnamed law enforcement sources’ running a smear campaign? If they are the ones with an agenda then why doesn’t Hernandez’s family simply release the contents of the notes?

  2. This stinks of radical left political pressure being brought on Baez to separate any association of Hernandez’s violence from the falsehood that has been perpetuated for decades of gays being totally non-violent.

  3. No one cares. And based on the sheer hell that man created for others, it’s a kind of justice since he thought he was escaping by killing himself. But we should feel bad for his family? Nah.

    “…why doesn’t Hernandez’s family simply release the contents of the notes?”

    ^
    This! The family is probably waiting for the results of the bidding war between TMZ and The Daily Mail, unless the notes have something in them that would have an impact on abating his previous conviction. And that is unlikely since the state already knows the contents

  5. OK so maybe Mr. Aaron “Lifetime” Hernandez was not bisexual…. “Lifetime” I think I have that correct, his life sentence tattoo he put on his neck?

    Maybe Aaron “Lifetime” Hernandez was simply gay for the stay?

  6. Blah, blah, blah. Everything negative about Aaron is fake news. This man was such a saint and never did anything wrong. He’s been framed by Goodell. Blah, blah, blah…………..

    Hey Baez, if you want to convince us on the prison, BF lover, show us the note? It has been returned to the family. What does it say? We’re waiting!

  7. “These are malicious leaks used to tarnish someone who is dead’

    I think he pretty much took care of that himself when he was alive.

  8. Okay, everyone confirms there are three notes. Everyone confirms two were for his fiance and his daughter.

    Either Baez can say who the 3rd letter was to, or Kennedy’s family can release a (redacted) copy of his letter.

    This isn’t rocket science. Just put up or shut up, and move on.

    Haven’t you bored yourself to tears yet? I know you’ve done it to the rest of us.

    You’re not worth debating at all–now I just feel bad for you.

  10. These leaks are likely coming because members of the media are paying $$$ to get them. The revelation that AH might have been bisexual can hardly compare to the emotional turmoil seeing her fiancé serving a life sentence, or just gone through a highly publicized double murder trial.

    That he might have been bisexual is nothing compared to the emotional turmoil he, Aaron Hernandez, inflicted on his family.

    Aaron Hernandez ended his own life. Aaron Hernandez, very deliberately and methodically set out to do so. Aaron Hernandez, is to blame for this. Every last bit of it.

  11. stealthscorpio :
    the girlfriend i can understand…the little girl however, i cant..lets try and keep in mind that another little girl lost her dad in all this when we’re expressing disgust and a lack of remorse for his family

  12. This CLOWN also wants his conviction dismissed because an old law in MA states that if a persons appeal hasn’t been heard before he dies the conviction is dismissed….. My thought is, AH took his own life before his appeal could be heard…. Thus that law becomes irrelevant as HE HIMSELF is the reason he is dead….he was a MURDERER…. Case closed& good riddance

  13. Haven’t you bored yourself to tears yet? I know you’ve done it to the rest of us.

    You’re not worth debating at all–now I just feel bad for you.

    Patriot way is full of covering up belicheat’s bending of the rules, drafting murderers, DUI cheats in floyd, dillon and awful people.

    Epic fail by the troll!
    Even Dolphin fans have made recent comments about how lame that trolls drivel is. They are also aware of every user account is used by the troll to post nonsense.

    Imagine taking the time to create multiple user accounts. Then spending countless hours looking for patriot related articles. Then writing repetitive posts…and in the end…your one and only accomplishment is that you made yourself look foolish while setting a PFT record for the most thumbs down for a single person.

  15. When “being gay” or bisexual is not seen as an embarrassment, or used to “tarnish” someone, maybe this society can advance above and beyond caveman status. Pathetic on all involved in this story; especially the attorney.

  16. Aaron Hernandez lawyer: Claims of suicide note to prison lover are false.

    Translation from Jose, “I was Arron’s lover, Kyle wasn’t.”

  17. I do feel sympathy for AH’s little girl,his Mom,and his brother. The fiance? Not so much. The only reason that she stayed out of jail was because she agreed to testify against him in the Lloyd case,and she really was no help. She got rid of evidence,and she covered up for him. She knew exactly who she was involved with and what he was capable of doing. She was an accessory to murder who was granted immunity. If she has to spend her life wondering if he was bisexual,well,that’s on her. Let’s not forget the people he killed or their families.

  18. I have a hard time believing a gay dude killed himself inside a prison, the place with thousands of men trapped in confined spaces sometimes for life with no women in sight. Ya right. Drop me in a women’s prison (I promise i’ll ‘identify’ as a girl) and it would take the a navy seal team to drag me out… dead.

  19. So, according to a lawyer it’s “malicious” to accuse someone of being gay? What is this 1980?

    I’m not chippy.

    The patriots have a history of serial cheating and need to be exposed!

  21. Belicheat also wants to find a way to get Ernie Adams to travel. Brady was having a hard time without the little voice in his in his helmet telling him what to do as each play unfolded.

    How can you be “bisexual” in prison?

    ———————————————-
    Just like being bisexual out of jail. Just because there aren’t any females there, doesn’t mean he didn’t like them. If you got locked up would that automatically make you gay because there were no women there? By this logic, you can’t still be heterosexual.

  23. The linked article to the NY Daily News says Aaron gave a $50,000 watch to the supposed lover.

    What in the world is a murder doing with a $50,000 watch in prison?

    After all the information that has been posted on PFT debunking that “history of cheating” theory….most people seem to believe that any time they see different user accounts posting that “cheaters” nonsense has to be one person.

    I guess that many people want to believe that there are few willfully ignorant science denying dupes in the world. So when PFT readers see the same brand of nonsense from different usernames they seem to surmise that it’s the work of one obsessed troll.

    Any word on when Roger Goodell plans on releasing that press release containing the PSI information from the 2015 season? Any chance that they can find 10 minutes to type up the press release before the 2017 NFL Draft?

    If that 2015 PSI information does not get released prior to the 2017 draft, then it’s going to be even more obvious to intelligent people that 31 teams now have a history of cheating.

  25. Further evidence of patriot detractor stupidity

    Stupidgate – where countless individuals were so stupid that they lacked a basic understanding of 7th grade science so they were easily duped into believing that footballs don’t drop PSI when taken outside on cold days.

    Despite videos being posted online showing footballs dropping PSI when placed in refrigerators, countless nimrods still subscribe to Roger Goodell science denying belief claiming that someone let air out of footballs.

    One video can be found on the popular online video site. Just search for “DEFLATE GATE & WHY SCIENCE SAYS THE PATRIOTS DID NOT TAMPER WITH FOOTBALLS”

  26. The chippy imposter must be working during chippys leave of absence to try get closer to catching chippys world record for receiving thumbs down in response to posting nonsense.

  27. Number forty-seven said to number three
    “You’re the cutest jailbird I ever did see
    I sure would be delighted with your company
    Come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me”

  28. Goodell Kraft connection is gold and everyone else is jealous.

    You are all fools because you can not beat our cheating ways. This is the Cheater Football League and the Patroits are the best.

  29. AH was a killer. That is a fact. I do however disagree with the media leaks about “a gay lover/ lovers”. Who cares what his sexual preference was?
    I feel bad for his family and his little girl. I how Mrs. Jenkins Hernandez can move on with her life and be the best parent she can be. Aaron had that girl so controlled, it’s sad. I will not forget the families of the victims. May the victims rest in peace. I also hope Aaron is at piece. This whole story is very sad.

    Does his husband have rights or does the girlfriend get his assets?”

    ****************

    Man, that’s so wrong…….AND I LOVE IT!!!

  31. The choice is he was either bisexual who killed himself or the stories about it are false to distract from him being murdered or being allowed to be murdered by correctional staff.

    I am OK either way.

  32. I would normally rip into the Hernandez but I won’t because at the end of the day this tragic for everyone involved. From victim, victims families and the Hernandez family. He was somebody’s little boy once upon a time.

  33. Bloodfart – Way to imply that prison is somehow fun for gay people. There’s nothing fun about having your every move controlled, eating slop, having to watch your back 24/7 & living in a tiny cell with no freedom. “Drop you in a women’s prison?” You sound like a rapist, bruh. You belong in a men’s prison with Bubba as a cellmate. Maybe then you won’t find the topic of rape so funny.

    But yeah, just because Hernandez might have been attracted to men, a life sentence was suddenly Disneyland :\

    Grow the h3ll up.
