Aaron Hernandez's suicide letter to his fiancee Shayana Jenkins-Hernandez was released today, it was one of three handwritten notes that the Hernandez left in his prison cell before taking his life.
At the end of the letter, Hernandez tells Shayana "You're Rich!"
"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"
In Massachusetts, when someone dies after being convicted of a crime, they are only considered guilty postmortem if their appeal process is exhausted. Hernandez's murder conviction was pending appeal when he committed suicide, therefore he technically died an innocent man.
