Rumors had swirled that Aaron Hernandez had left behind a letter for a fellow inmate, who some claimed was his lover. Even that inmate’s lawyer had confirmed last week that a letter was written for a fellow inmate. Turns out that may not be true.
After Hernandez committed suicide by hanging himself in his cell on April 19, he left behind three notes. TMZ claims to have sources close to the investigation that tell them the three notes recovered in his prison cell were written to his fiancee, his daughter and his attorney, Jose Baez. The sources say there was no note left for another inmate.
The contents of the three letters have not yet been released. Baez shot down rumors of Hernandez having an inmate lover as false. "These are malicious leaks used to tarnish somebody who is dead," he said. Hernandez’ suicide came just days after he was acquitted of a double homicide. He was already serving a life sentence for another murder.
