Aaron Hernandez Mentions Jay-Z, Meek Mill & Rick Ross In Suicide Note
Jose Baez, the attorney who represented Aaron Hernandez before he took his life in his jail cell in 2017, is writing a book. “Unnecessary Roughness: Inside the Trial and Final Days of Aaron Hernandez” is also said to feature the alleged suicide notes Hernandez left behind.
In the three suicide letters, Hernandez references his fiancée Shayanna Jenkins, his daughter and Baez. He often hinted at dying, spoke about his fiancee being awarded money made sure to tell everyone he loved them. The most interesting part of Hernandez’s final letter to Baez was sharing his adoration of Kevin Gates, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Game, who he said all helped him get through tough times.
I wrote this letter following my acquittal and wanted to voice how I felt and let some people whos(e) music helped me get through hard times, know that it did…
I need a favor — If you have any contacts for any artists like Gates, Meek Mill, Ross, Jay, Game … etc. I would like to send you letters so you can send to their information or whichever way you think best. I don’t want any media really getting into me, trying to just send my love to all the artists who got me through my tough times and sending my respect to a few of the real ones out there. So I think that’s the best idea through you. It’s something I have to do and I’d appreciate if you could do that for me, if possible! If not, I’ll figure something out. Well, get at me, love ya brother!
Hernandez was acquitted of two murder charges stemming from a drive-by shooting in July 2012. However, he was still facing life in prison for the murder of Odin Lloyd.
Neuropathologists say that Aaron Hernandez suffered from Stage 3 CTE. Stage 4 is the most severe. CTE, formerly named chronic traumatic encephalopathy, can only be diagnosed posthumously and is often found in athletes who have suffered head injuries and/or concussions.
Aside from Aaron Hernandez, Jose Baez also represented Casey Anthony in 2011.
Baez says he plans to take the proceeds from his book and put them into a college fund for Hernandez’s daughter
“so that she can know there’s a different side to the story of her father.”
