Aaron Hernandez's fiancee to speak on 'Dr. Phil' show

The former National Football League athlete hanged himself in the MA prison cell where he was serving a life sentence for murder, but his death shocked his family as it came just days after a jury had cleared him of a separate double-murder charge. Hernandez was acquitted in the double slaying last month. The conviction was vacated on Tuesday.

"In Aaron's case, his murder conviction was pending appeal".

"I thought it was a hoax, that this was some cruel person playing a trick on me", she said when she found out about his death.

Two words included in a suicide note Hernandez wrote to his fiancee have fueled speculation he left other assets to her.

She revealed in the interview that she was not aware Hernandez had plans to take his own life in his prison cell.

In the two-part interview (screenshot above), Jenkins-Hernandez talks about her fiance's death and how she wasn't expecting it.

An attorney in Hernandez's criminal case filed court papers last month that said his estate is now worth "zero".

According to a report from Newsweek that came out on April 21, the final note was intended for Hernandez's prison boyfriend, a 22-year-old man named Kyle Kennedy.

The Patriots and the National Football League players' association didn't respond to requests for comment.

Sheff said the only identifiable assets he knows of are Hernandez's house, valued at $1.3 million, and a Hummer. He is survived by his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, and their 4-year-old daughter Avielle. Correction officers found that cardboard had been shoved into the tracks of Hernandez's cell door to prevent it from opening.

According to the report, Hernandez also served as a lookout at the prison, engaged in fights, stole another inmate's calling card and was discovered to be in possession of a almost six-inch shank fashioned out of a piece of metal. Since Hernandez was appealing that conviction when he committed suicide, the law states that his death essentially wiped out all proceedings.
