Authorities reportedly found three hand-written letters to those closest to the former NFL star, and one of those letters was just released to the public. The note, addressed to his fiancée Shayanna Jenkins, takes on a particularly loving and religious tone throughout. "Shay," he begins the letter. "You have always been my soulmate and I want you to live life and know I'm always with you." Hernandez then notes that he previously hinted at his death, writing: "I told you what was coming indirectly!"
He continues by adding how much he loves her, and how he wants his story told "fully."
At the bottom of the letter, Hernandez asks Jenkins to look after his "boys," and then in parentheses writes "You're rich," which is underlined twice. He finished the note with a reference to Savage Garden's "I Knew I Loved You."
The star's attorney, Jose Baez, is not pleased with authorities' decision to release the letter. He reportedly commented on the incident to WBZ TV station saying that it was "unnecessary" and "amateurish."
No word yet on the contents of the other two letters, but Hernandez also left his mark in the form of bible passages written in blood in his jail cell. The 28-year-old also reportedly left similar inscriptions on his own forehead.
