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.

Prosecutors, however, were looking to

“I knew it.”

One week earlier in Chicago. Marilyn Miglin is giving some form of motivational speech and notes that “so often we are told that the American dream is dead,” while espousing some boot-strap rhetoric about hard work and success. She describes Lee as “the perfect husband.”

Murphy, once again without subtlety, is making a statement on gay life before the current social movement we find ourselves in: when good, kind people had to keep their sexualities hidden and sublimate

Versace Family Slams New Season Of ‘American Crime Story,’ Calls It ‘A Work Of Fiction’

Ryan Murphy’s critically acclaimed anthology series “American Crime Story” is set to explore the many facets of the murder of Gianni Versace. After receiving numerous awards for “The People V. O. J. Simpson,” expectations are high for the upcoming program.

Members of the Versace family, however, have issued a public statement disavowing the show, proclaiming many (if not all) of the events depicted are fictitious.

“The Versace family has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace. Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is partly based nor has it taken part in the writing of the screenplay, this TV series should only be considered as a work of fiction,” reads the family’s statement.
