Fiancée Shayanna Jenkins Reveals How She Reacted When Aaron Hernandez Was Arrested For Murder

In part one of Oxygen’s two-night docu-series “Aaron Hernandez Uncovered,” Shayanna Jenkins revealed what it was like when police knocked on the door of her North Attleborough, Massachusetts, home and arrested fiancé Aaron Hernandez.

“We were upstairs in our bedroom with the baby. I think we were just waking up, actually. He said there was a knock at the door,” Jenkins told producers. “He went to go answer it, and they arrested him there. And I remember saying I loved him, and then he was taken out.”

On June 26, 2013, the former New England Patriots tight end was taken into custody and charged in connection with the shooting of semiprofessional football player Odin Lloyd. Lloyd, who was dating Jenkins’ sister at the time, had been found dead in an industrial park about a half-mile from Hernandez’s house.

“This is someone you love, your soulmate, being taken away,” Jenkins continued. “It’s

Aaron Hernandez Told Fiancée Shayanna Jenkins To ‘Tell My Story Fully’ In Suicide Note

When Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell on April 19, 2017 after hanging himself, authorities also discovered the former NFL star’s last words in three handwritten suicide notes. In the weeks following Hernandez’s death, a portion of one note — addressed to his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins — was released in a legal filing by the prosecution.

At the time, prosecutors intended to use the suicide note to argue Hernandez’s first-degree murder conviction should not be vacated because of his death. As CNN reported, the annulment of his guilty verdict would “reward the defendant’s conscious, deliberate and voluntary act,” said the court filing.

Massachusetts, the state where Hernandez was tried, recognizes the legal principle of “abatement ab initio,” which allows courts to void convictions for defendants if they die before exhausting all their appeals. And in Massachusetts, first-degree murder convictions prompt an automatic appeal.

Prosecutors, however, were looking to

New Details In Kenneka Jenkins Case Reveal What ‘Help Me’ Screams In Viral Facebook Live Really Were

On Friday, police released dozens of police reports and witness statements regarding the death of Kenneka Jenkins, which address several of the rumors surrounding her death last month. The 19-year-old was found dead in a hotel’s industrial walk-in freezer in Rosemont, Illinois after attending a party on the ninth floor of the hotel with friends a day and a half earlier.
Her death was ruled an accident earlier this month. The medical examiner’s office blamed hypothermia, “cold exposure in a walk-in freezer.”  “Ethanol and topiramate intoxication” contributed to her tragic death, the findings concluded. Topiramate is medication used for epilepsy and migraine treatment. According to CNN, an autopsy found stomach lesions consistent with hypothermia.

The newly released police documents reveal how Jenkins seemed sad. She drank cognac heavily and then seemingly wandered off after her friends left her in a hallway, according to the Chicago Tribune. The reports

Hotel Says No Video Exists Of Kenneka Jenkins Walking Into The Freezer

There is no video of Kenneka Jenkins walking into an industrial hotel freezer where her body was found earlier this month, according to the hotel she was found dead at.

A spokesperson for the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel Conference Center told a CBS affiliate in Chicago on Tuesday that footage of the 19-year-old going into the freezer does not exist. Why? No camera in the hotel is focused on the freezer, according to the report.

Jenkins attended a party on the ninth floor of the hotel on September 8. A day and a half later her body was found. Police told family members that Jenkins likely walked into the freezer and died.

“I want to see her literally, actually walking into this freezer,” Tereasa Martin, Jenkins’ mother, stated last week. Previously, Martin told WGNTV, “I believe someone in this hotel

Police in Rosemont, Illinois have released all surveillance video received from the Crowne Plaza Hotel where 19-year-old Kenneka Jenkins was found dead in an industrial walk-in freezer last week. She was attending a party on the ninth floor of the hotel a day and a half before her body was found.

In the videos, Jenkins appears to be stumbling in the hotel hallways, kitchen, and near an elevator.

WGN reports that they did not receive any video where Jenkins walks into a freezer. On Friday, an attorney representing Jenkins’ family released a statement saying they didn’t receive any video that showed her entering the freezer either.

“Despite request for all evidence, we have only been provided snippets of video, none of which shows Kenneka Jenkins walking into a freezer,” the statement reads. “Serious questions remain as to how she ended up in a Crowne Plaza Hotel freezer and why it took
