Aaron Hernandez was Bloods gang member

On Friday, authorities released one of those letters, which is addressed to Hernandez's fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins. I told you what was coming indirectly! I love you so much and know you are an angel. The images and details come from Hernandez's prison file we obtained from the Massachusetts Department of Correction through a public records request. I love you. Let [redacted] know how much I love her. Look after [redacted] and [redacted] for me.

He ended with a reference to a song. Hernandez's attorneys were in the process of appealing his life sentence for killing Odin Lloyd.

MA is one of several states that has recognized a legal rule called "abatement", in which courts throw out convictions for defendants who die before their appeal is heard.

The Herald reported yesterday that Hernandez told a fellow inmate about a "rumor" that if convicts with an impending appeal die in prison they are acquitted of the charge.

Hernandez's estate is now worthless, according to an affidavit filed in probate court.

The DA's office based its motion against abatement on arguments that other jurisdictions are moving away from the practice; that his suicide indicated forfeiture of appeal; and that there would have been a slim chance of him winning his appeal anyway.
Vacating the conviction could complicate legal proceedings for Lloyd's family, who has sued Hernandez for damages in civil court.

In the note, Hernandez writes that his story - that he wants told "fully" - was all God's work.

Equal to the number of pages of history it sounds like he has read, with his comments about Andrew Jackson and the Civil War. On tax cuts as a version of a jobs bill: " More than 70% of the tax burden on business is passed on to the workers".

Although some reports have suggested Aaron Hernandez had a net worth of around $8 million at the time of his death, a MA court document has since revealed otherwise.

Hernandez, a star tight end for the NFL's New England Patriots from 2010 to 2012, was convicted of killing a MA man in 2013.

The attorney for the Hernandez family issued a statement Friday calling the release of the note "unnecessary". In December 2015, after Hernandez was found guilty for the first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd and before he was acquitted in connection with the deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, he appeared in court with a new tattoo.

One interview subject, who identified himself as one of Hernandez's "close friends", said that Hernandez had been in particularly good spirits in the days before his death.

"By the unnecessary attachment of this letter into an official court document, the Bristol County District's Attorney Office could have submitted the pleading without it".

The documents also contain "Added Information Report" that lists his occupation as "New England Patriots Tight End" and his previous job "student".

Prison guards found Hernandez dead in his cell at 3:03 a.m. April 19.
