When Aaron Hernandez’s body was found hanging in his prison cell on April 19, 2017, there were multiple writings found as well. According to his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, there were three notes: one to her, one to his attorneys and one to their 4-year-old daughter.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Are you involved in a story that has made the headlines?
In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil, Jenkins-Hernandez told Dr. Phil that she found her longtime love’s note to her to be "odd," one of the reasons she questions whether the former New England Patriot committed suicide.
In the video above from Tuesday’s episode, the young mother shares why she says she felt his note to their daughter “wasn’t personal.”
“It did have her name on the top as normal. But as far as the content, very vague, very short, nothing seemed very personal,” she says. “I feel like with this being such a high profile case, any kind of information can be gathered and put into something. I feel like writing a 4-year-old, you can kind of say anything. You’re talking about a guy who was present but not present. So no, it wasn’t personal in that way where he was referencing games or pet names or favorite books. It was nothing like that.”
