Aaron Hernandez wrote a letter while in prison and sent it to someone outside the prison, and in the letter Hernandez says he’s “not guilty.”
TMZ published the letter (pdf) and said it verified with law enforcement officials that it’s legitimate.
Among the things Hernandez, who is accused of murdering semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd, said was:
“All the people who turned on me will feel like crap.”
“I am a strong person and nothing will break me!”
“I can’t wait to sign this again when I’m playing again and prove all the haters and da talkers wrong.”
“Keep this off social media please!”
The letter was sent to a fan who had written Hernandez a letter first. The fan sent the letter because he was in the same jail 15 years ago, and because he wanted to encourage Hernandez.
