Jenkins-Hernandez told host Dr. Phillip McGraw she doesn't think the former New England Patriots tight end's death April 19 was a suicide, as authorities have ruled. "I spoke to him the night before and he was so, 'Daddy's going to be home, ' and 'I can't wait to sleep in the bed with you guys, and I can't wait to just hold you and love you.' There was no indication at all of such events", she said.
Hernandez's suicide came just days after he was acquitted in a 2012 double slaying. That opens up the possibility for Hernandez's estate to sue the Patriots for the rest of his contract, who owed him about $6.5million on his contract when they severed it in 2013 when he was arrested for Lloyd's murder.
She said she thought the news of Hernandez's death was a "hoax" and some cruel person was playing a trick on her.
There were also peculiarities in his suicide note to her, she said. Lloyd was dating Jenkins-Hernandez's sister. I think he could have been saved. I wouldn't say I felt uncomfortable in my home. "Until we can get in there and do our own investigation and I actually - I guess - trust where these answers are coming from, maybe I can have some comfort in the truth". "We were going up a ladder to a positive direction".
Although a state police investigation closed the matter, the late National Football League player's fiancée said, "I don't think this was a suicide", telling Dr. Phil the findings are not believable to her and that she is calling for an inquiry.
Stephen Colbert responds to President Trump's 'no-talent' insult
Last week, Colbert's lead in viewers was the biggest since he took over for David Letterman in September 2015. But you know who's got really bad ratings these days? The comment was both harsh and accurate.
Jenkins-Hernandez unequivocally stated that if she'd known or even suspected that Aaron Hernandez was contemplating suicide, she would have done whatever she need to do to get him the help he needed.
"I did see that it was addressed to Shay instead of Babe or Bae, the way he would refer (to) me as".
One note was written to his fiancée (Jenkins-Hernandez), one note was written to his 4-year-old daughter, but it's still unclear for whom the third note was written. Those words have fueled speculation Hernandez left assets to her, but she said she thought about love when she read it and couldn't speak to whether the note was a will and testament.
"The letter screamed love but it wasn't personal or intimate and it was odd in some parts". And then I would kind of go and do my own thing.
Some inmates have said Hernandez had become increasingly spiritual during his time in prison, but Jenkins-Hernandez said the bible verse didn't sound like Hernandez and he'd never mentioned it to her.
