Avielle Hernandez Shayanna Jenkins

Aaron Hernandez’s fiancée and 4-year-old daughter were spotted in public after news broke that the former Patriots TE hanged himself in prison.

Shayanna Jenkins and her daughter, Avielle Hernandez, were seen outside her modest rented townhouse on the Louisquisset Golf Course in North Providence, Rhode Island on Thursday.

Hernandez was found hanging in his cell at a maximum security prison in Shirley, Massachusetts early Wednesday. The 27-year-old convicted murderer planned his suicide for weeks, according to published reports.

The Daily Mail UK reports he gave away personal items to fellow inmates and he soaped the floor of his tiny cell so he couldn’t get a firm footing in case he lost his nerve and decided not to go through with it.

He also reportedly jammed cardboard into the tracks of his cell door to make it difficult for guards to gain entry.

Hernandez was serving a life sentence for the shooting death of his friend, semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd in 2013, who was engaged to Jenkins’ sister.

But according to an obscure Massachusetts doctrine, his conviction will be thrown out. Technically, Hernandez died an innocent man.

The Patriots may have to pay Hernandez’s family over $5 million in bonus money and guaranteed salary. The money will likely go to his only child, Avielle.

Jenkins and Hernandez never married. She put the couple’s 5,600 sq. ft. North Attleboro, Mass. mansion on the market for $1.5 million last year.

    Poor Tink! She doesn’t understand what’s going on…may they both find peace

  • shun king

    I heard he left a letter to his male partner in prison

  • Peter Piper ATL

    HORRIBLE. Tragedy all the way around.

  • Yoni7

    @Same……What you say, she out Range shopping?

  • Scromes1212

    He got famous and got him a sista. Go figure.

  • Scromes1212

    Stop it smh

  • stav

    They were high school sweethearts, so he was into this sista before the fame.

  • Electricbird83

    So… life does go on.?

    On another note, that first sentence, “hung” not “hanged”.

  • LibraGirlonly

    This is sooo sad. I hope the Patriots have to pay that money so This little girl won’t have to worry about money. It is owed to her dad.

  • Soda

    Things are hung, people are hanged.

  • Coy little wink

    Avielle…pretty name for a pretty little girl

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I still think they offed him

  • V Dubb

    God bless them both.

  • Keesh5000

    She is a beautiful little girl. Hope she get the chance to grow up in a normal enviornment

  • V Dubb

    We can only hope!

  • Keesh5000

    is dat u boo????

  • Carrington

    I feel sorry for the little girl who lost her father… I don’t feel sorry for the father… or the mother who reportedly knew of all of his “deeds”. End transmission.

  • TOO REAL

    I see she took that ring off quick.

  • starbright9449

    Can someone please remind me again why he killed Odin, I checked online and I’m still not clear.

  • Thismessismessy

    They arent in public. They are at home. Which means their privacy is being invaded.

    I dont feel sorry for female Shad Moss. She should have been charged with perjury like they wanted to do. And as being an accessory.

    Her privacy still shouldn’t be invaded though.

  • Thismessismessy

    He thought he was going to rat on him for being a serial killer

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    awww don’t make me cry. poor little baby.

  • jazmine

    Why they at that woman’s house photographing her child?

  • Thismessismessy

    Also, with all of that he did beforehand if true, I dont think this dude suffered from CTE. Throwing soap on floor. Jamming cell etc. So much forethought. I kind of hope they dont find it. It would be an excuse to not see him as the monster/serial killer he was.

  • jazmine

    Odin’s cousin was at a club making gestures and whatever towards Hernandez and he felt threatened and thought Odin was in on whatever the cousin was doing so he killed him the next day.

  • 2brefrank

    Like real talk. Leave his family alone. My goodness this should be ILLEGAL! It’s out of control!

  • Reina1718

    Agreed!

  • tintin

    It will be interesting to see the lifetime movie made on his life. Like how did he become this

  • Dee

    Why leave it on?

  • Darkchild

    I read that he started getting into trouble after his father passed away

  • Dee

    She is a cutie. Looks just like mom and handsome dad.

  • Ms. Cree

    She look just like bow wow & I still feel like something is fishy about the whole thing. Leave the family alone. He hasn’t even been laid to rest yet, has he?

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    I’m sure there are people working on a the script for a movie or documentary as we speak. I can see HBO or ESPN films doing something on this.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    But didn’t they just determine that he wasn’t a serial killer…..so if that was the motive for killing Odin—there is none now.

  • Keesh5000

    Giggles….yeah she look like Bow Wow

  • lil goodie

    fiance or wife I’m so confused by this write up

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Fiancee. She took his last name, but they never got legally married.

  • lil goodie

    ?…

  • 2brefrank

    If Lifetime does it…they are going to be rude about it. I don’t watch that channel anymore since they did Aaliyah like that. If a movie takes less than a week to do and gives the actress two weeks to prepare…it’s more than likely going to be terrible! So glad Zendaya backed out that would have been career suicide.

    YaYa did good for Whitney though i didn’t think that one was as bad.

  • 2brefrank

    Nope!!! I mean he JUST died and they are there trying to catch the faces and feelings. Like that really makes me upset! I can’t stand paps! So glad i’m not famous!!

  • 2brefrank

    His daughter melts my heart!

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    It’s her choice, of course… but why not leave it on? A lot of women keep their ring on after their husband or fiance passes away.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    Just to imagine what she’s thinking….omg. Sad.

  • chris

    Didn’t know his wife was black

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Yup……already put in her order for the plate reading JOHN 3:16.

  • stav

    That gang mentality didn’t go anywhere because he had money! Money doesn’t cure things, a lot of times it makes things worse. So sad for all involved, victims, families, friends, etc.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Sandy being messy, cause it has been said 50-11 times that they were not married and she only took his last name.

  • 2brefrank

    i know !!!…ugh I’m tearing up!

  • Thismessismessy

    Fiance. She like how Yandy is/was. Idk outcome. But changed last name. No legalities other than name change paperwork happened

  • 2brefrank

    Ion know. Maybe she just doesn’t have it on today, forgot it, looks like she’s moving stuff maybe she doesn’t want to mess it up. I have done all three on several occasions. Just thoughts.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Question:
    If he was convicted of the 2nd crime, and the motive was to cover-up or prevent a person from telling about the 1st crime and then found that he wasn’t guilty of the 1st crime, so would have no need to fear anyone “ratting him out”……how are folks saying he absolutely killed Odin?

    I know they are saying he evidence in the Odin killing was strong……but part of the evidence and motive was covering a crime that he wasn’t guilty of……so that pretty much destroys much of the case….No?

    As for him having a lover in jail—–SODAFUQWAT….only person who should care is Shanaya and she has to focus on her child (and what color Range Rover- IKID IKID)

  • 2brefrank

    Sorry World my brain can’t process that information. It’s just too much data for Friday and very confusing.

    But good work cadet! lol

  • Kirenee

    Yep! A rich gangster’s downfall…. Always hood no matter what opportunities lie ahead.. sad because his daughter is the one who will really suffer.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    To put it simply… OJ Simpson was acquitted of double-murder… but we know that doesnt mean he didn’t do it. Same concept here.

    Just because Hernandez got found not guilty doesn’t mean he didn’t commit that first crime… So it doesn’t mean he wouldn’t have been looking to commit a second murder to cover up the first.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Took me up until today to process it….so I understand.
    But seems that folks have come to an absolute conclusion with all that confusion.

  • 2brefrank

    I know i love her she’s so adorable!!! I’m such a mama bear. I know she’s a big girl but if that were my child i would have had her covered in a blanket and i would have had dark glasses on …they would not have been able to see our faces!!!!. The paparazzi are ridiculous! They look so caught off guard!

  • LibraGirlonly

    Everyone doesn’t believe OJ was guilty tho

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    So are you saying that if Odin were alive Hernandez would have been convicted of the first crime?

    As for OJ, We don’t know anything for sure on if he did it or not and the police made sure we would never truly know. Thanks Mark!!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Exactly…and Fuhrman made sure we will never know.

  • 2brefrank

    Yep! Agreed!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    For the record: I don’t think OJ did it…..but I do believe he knows who did and knew he could get off, so he took the wrap for it.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Exactly I will be so glad when blacks realize that white folks will lie about everything.

  • 1shy112

    Ummmm he was already convicted of the crime from his friend, that’s why he’s was there. How did he die a innocent man. The jury said he was guilty and got life within possibly of parole. ?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    will lie AND HAVE LIED AND WILL CONTINUE LYING about everything.

  • Thismessismessy

    I think he committed all of them. They found the truck they were driving at someone he was connected to crib, the murder weapon was found on someone connected to him, and had witness accounts. He also shot the homeboy who was with him and tried to kill him too. Bradley. He happened to survive.

    And yes. Juries get it wrong all the time in many cases

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    You must not have been keeping up with Sandy and the news. In Mass, if you die while your conviction is on appeal, the verdict is reversed, thus you are innocent.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Yes I know.I didnt says everyone believes he did it. The idea is that just because a person got found not guilty doesn’t mean they’re necessarily innocent of the crime. They could still have done it, so we cant really assume they didn’t do it just because of a not guilty verdict.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    And the only example you could think of was OJ?

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    I think you got sidetracked by the “OJ example” I made, instead of just looking at the the overall point I’m making about this case though.

  • Thismessismessy

    I think he was a serial killer

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Naw, just wish folks would find another example. Like we all know those cops killed Eric Garner, but they still got off.
    Or we know Officer Wilson killed Mike and he got off
    Or we know George killed Trayvon and he got off.
    See so many other examples

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I see

  • MsPam

    Now she can fine a new man without feeling guilty! I believe she was afraid of old boy!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Oh wow did not know that.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I agree

  • Tawaii

    For the record, OJ did do it. The cut on his hand, he told several different stories of how it got there, all the blood traces back to him, he had motive, opportunity, and Robert Kardashian knew he did it because he took the duffel bag with knife and disposed of it. He did it !

  • Tawaii

    We know, a lot of us just won’t accept the facts. Even OJ’s former friends know he did it!

  • shun king

    Serious not lying they claim the inmate he was screwing is on suicide watch also

  • LibraGirlonly

    So you were there? If not you are just speculating like everyone else.

  • the guest

    This will be a feature film not a lifetime movie.

  • Michelle

    That’s her daughters dad I think she is more concerned about her

  • Soon2BWife

    Wonder was this his way of ensuring his daughter would get that money. Lord, how tragic for all involved. Bless that baby and her mother and the families of those whose lives were taken.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    What facts? If videotape isn’t absolute evidence of a crime (Rodney King). tampered with evidence damn sure ain’t.

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    That baby has more hair on her head than most of you do underneath your weaves. What’s your excuse? What are you ‘protecting’?

  • Nita

    Stfu you bitter b*tch

  • Nita

    There are people who have said that there was a serial killer who most likely killed them and it got pinned on oj

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Somebody get this troll out of here!

  • XoXo

    Respectively, using your same logic, just because he was found to be guilty, doesn’t mean he was. Innocent people get let out of jail way too much for us to believe that every single person in jail is guilty. Js

  • karen b

    I said the same thing too. This man has taken a couple of black men from our community and I’m supposed to feel sorry for him….FOH………btw, my daughter has the same name as yours but I spell it similar to mine….Me-Karen…..Hers- Karynton but pronounced the way you spell yours…..I LOVE THAT NAME…….

  • YellowSauce

    there are women that wear weaves that don’t need them … no one ever expects MY hair to be a long as it is until I FLING it on em .. my BLACK boyfriend LOVES my weaves and make up …. DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE … Black men LOVE black women …why do you think “they” COPY US ….

  • Scromes1212

    They got together in 2007 from what I understand. He was at UF then. But if they were high school sweethearts thats even better lol he got on and didn’t leave her for a white girl lol

  • MsPam

    I didn’t say she wasn’t but being faithful to someone who in prison for life I’m sure isn’t easy! Im sure if he lived and she started to date , he would of been pissed off! She probably didn’t was to be his next victim. He wasn’t wrapped to tight. But I guess being a celebrity he get a pass?! No pun intended!

  • Malcom Flex

    Why the F do you care what BW do with their hair, hater? You pissy beaches need to give it a rest, you’re either a DL BM or a fat blobby non black chick stuck with black males bastard.

  • Malcom Flex

    OF COURSE OJ DID IT.

  • Malcom Flex

    She’s not his wife she’s a mentally ill babymama. She’s a damn fool, no ring, she’s not a legal widow, either. Big dummy!

  • Malcom Flex

    Just another baby mama with NO LEGAL RIGHTS. BW need to learn the LAW!

  • Malcom Flex

    Naw. She is a cling on. AR didn’t want to and didn’t marry her. She’s mentally ill.

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    Correct. Only a BLACK man would encourage a weave. Do you hear yourself? What does that tell you. Black men are saying your god given hair is not good enough. You can have long hair WITHOUT a weave. Again, what are you ‘protecting’ why are little girls and babies allowed to walk around without weaves? Shouldn’t they be ‘protected’ as well?

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    Lmao. You pressed boo?

  • 19awesomegrl97

    so sad

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    I am talking about Black women who wear weave 365. Whats the excuse. What are you protecting? Why is someone else’s hair better than your own? Why the inferiority complex? Is it that you are ashamed of what Black men may say?

  • Nikida1

    Idk why his fiance looks like bow wow in this photo? Lord forgive me

  • Sinny

    I swear, I just literally said in my head that she looks like Bow Wow with a wig on ?

  • Miany

  • Canary Red™

    They grew up together, same neighborhood in Bristol, CT. Became high school sweethearts and then he “left” her when he went to college in Fl. Soon after they started an on again off again relationship until
    he got drafted then she moved in with him in the mansion in Mass(?)….

You can’t trust the police or the judicial system they lie and cheat for career advancement I had a friend spent 17 years in prison lying ass cops and dirty DA’s well guess what after spending half his life someone found evidence mhhh where was 17 yrs prior so he walks with a few millions he can’t buy back the 17 years he lost he can’t watch his child grow take there first step you can’t rewind time.

  • Dee4mine

Why would you feel that you entitled to one Penny when he was found not guilty I hope that baby gets every dam penny.

  • Dee4mine

    She was approved legally to change her name so that her and her daughter would share the last name.Its no difference when them Prison Convicts give up the white mans name and adapt salaam or some shit they can legally change there names to what ever.

  • Dee4mine

  • Dee4mine

    This woman didn’t do anything that most women wouldn’t do and that is Stand By Your Man they have been high school sweethearts I don’t understand why she is under attack. Cops wrongfully kill women children old people everyday doesn’t that make them murderers, an they get away with it. I’m sure their families stand by them as well, what’s the difference oh yes there’s is always Justified a murderer is a murderer.

  • Toya Redd

    She’s his common law wife and mother of his child. It seems like he only seriously wanted to marry her after his incarceration. It’s obvious she loved him. She does have some legal rights. But by the time those countless lawsuits are slung around, there may be nothing left to gain. I hope she moves on with her life and will find a man who will love and take care of them.

  • J’aime Sucer

    Didn’t this bitch dispose of trash containing the murder weapon but when asked where is the dumpster she placed the trash in, she said I don’t know .

  • J’aime Sucer

    Black women use that same tired worn excuse – I’m protecting my hair – bullshit. In reality they are doing more damage wearing those skull caps every day. Many of them have hairlines like Stevie Wonder. Keep on “protecting your hair”

  • J’aime Sucer

    Who is copying you ? Aren’t you copying women from India? Or better yet- secretly wish you had their long silly natural thick beautiful hair?

  • Libralovejustice

    Demons are real

  • Diva4lyfe

    Amen his daughter had nothing to do with it.

  • Diva4lyfe

    Lmao and they should burn down Keisha’s Keeper. Hopefully her mom will budget the money well since he drop a good dime n her account before he went to prison

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    She be bedda do sumptin’!

  • Diva4lyfe

    Yes the daughter should be straight for a long while with this 5 Mil the NFL about to gv plus the money he dropped n her account also. If she go broke before 18 then they all got problems

  • Lykbein Lonerfor Lyfe

    Ppl Always go too far….Anyways my condolences to his family. Regardless to his color their hair whatever someone lost their dad. Shayanna obviously loved Aaron so she is going through it too. Let people grieve the loss of a man they knew and loved. R.I.P. Aaron

  • YellowSauce

  • YellowSauce

  • Sasha Fierce

    Is there a coverup in his death?

    Why did the first several days of news reports say there was NO SUICIDE LETTERS FOUND in his cell. Matter of fact go back and read initial reports which said only a BIBLE was found tourneys to John.
    DAYS later suddenly not one but three letters were found. and a BOYFRIEND. Early reports of the boyfriend days after his death says he APPARENTLY had a boyfriend in jail. Ok how was this information validated? By word of mouth is the only way the boyfriend and possibly others? What kind of VALIDATION is word of mouth from CONVICTS. And he happen to have ” given him a $50,000 watch? And other JEWELRY to his INMATE FRIENDS. Says who? Oh yea the CONVICTS.

    WHY IS A JUDGE HAVING TO FORCE THE PRISON TO GIVE UP THE SUICIDE LETTERS.

    WHERE WERE THE LETTERS THE FIRST FEW DAYS OF HIS DEATH?

    THE OFFICER WAS PLACED ON LEAVE 4 NOT CHECKING HIS CELL AT 2AM so how was it the “LOVER” inmate was the last person in his cell to see him alive? Are prison cells kept open all hours for prisoners to roam freely from cell to cell or something!

    IF YOU READ THE BEGINMING ARTICLES YOU WILL FIND THE PRISON WAS BEGINNING TO FEEL SOME HEAT BEHIND HIS the so call “SUICIDE”.

    THE SUICIDE LETTERS & LOVER REFOCUSED THE ATTENTION FROM THEM TO HIM. .

  • Sasha Fierce

    Yes

  • Michelle

    How do you know she was faithful
