Hernandez killed, a convicted murderer who was serving life in prison without the possibility of parole, killed himself in Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in MA.

On April 26, AOL News shared video footage of Larry Army Jr. speaking to press about the relationship between Aaron Hernandez and Kyle Kennedy and claimed the two men knew one another before prison.

Hernandez family lawyer George Leontire confirmed Hernandez's estate received an offer for the 7,100-square-foot home on Ronald C. Meyer Drive, which has been on the market for over a year.

In the wake of Aaron Hernandez's suicide, details have continued to come out regarding the three handwritten letters he left in his prison cell before taking his life, including rumors that he left a note for his "gay lover".

Prison officials have declined to comment on the nature of the suicide notes, including who they were addressed to.

Army said he's requesting the note in question be released to his client. What exactly is in the letters has not been made public but Dan Bennett, the Governor's Secretary of Public Safety, said it is clear Hernandez was saying goodbye.

Kennedy will elaborate on his relationship with Hernandez once he is taken off suicide watch and has access to the media, the lawyer said. One note was to his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, another to his 4-year-old daughter, and the third to who media has labeled Hernandez's "prison lover".

Arkansas Executes Two More Inmates, Another Scheduled Thursday
Arkansas carried out the executions of two death row inmates Monday, the first double execution in the United States since 2000. Ledell Lee was put to death last week while the next execution, of Kenneth Dewayne Williams, is scheduled for Thursday.


An autopsy following his jailhouse suicide revealed that former National Football League star Aaron Hernandez reportedly tested positive for synthetic marijuana.

Kennedy also wants possession of a custom, $50,000 watch he says Hernandez promised to give him, Army said. They also haven't been able to see the suicide note Hernandez left. Army said he and Hernandez knew each other before that time, but would not elaborate.

Army then read from a letter to Kennedy's father written last September: "Mr. Kennedy, it's Aaron".

"What my client told me is Aaron Hernandez is one of the most powerful forces as a person he's ever known", Army said.

The Bristol County district attorney, who handled the Lloyd murder trial, plans to contest the request to vacate the verdict, a spokesman said.

Baez added, "l urge anyone continuing to spread these malicious untruths to cease immediately". It has until May 1 to file its opposition memo.

Under a long-standing legal principle in the Bay State, Hernandez will have his first-degree murder conviction vacated because he died before the completion of the appeal process, which his lawyers initiated after he was convicted by a jury.
