Aaron Hernandez proclaims innocence in jail house letter


Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been in jail for a month now for allegedly murdering Odin Lloyd. The time in jail has been enough to give Hernandez a pen pal.

A man named Karl recently sent Hernandez a letter which was replied to by the former tight end. The letter was obtained by TMZ and has been verified as real by law enforcement officials.


The highlights of the letter include Hernandez proclaiming he is “NOT GUILTY” and that “all the people who turned on me will feel like crap.”

Here’s the complete contents of the letter:

Your letter meant alot and was very true! I know everything happens for a reason and I know ‘God’ has a plan for me and something good will come out of this. The world just makes things out of false accusations and it will all die down especially when they say NOT GUILTY and all the people who turned on me will feel like crap. I’ve always been a great person an[d] known for having an amazing heart! I am a strong person and nothing will break me! A [correctional officer] will never nor can they say now for one day have I been down or not with a smile on my face. I know there is a reason I’m going thru this and I will figure it out through my relationship with the Lord. I fell off especially after making all that money but when its all said and done ‘God’ put me in the situation for a reason. I’m humbled by this ALREADY and this will change me forever. At least I’ll know my true supporters. Thanks for being one of them!

So much for Hernandez’s request that Karl keeps the letter off social media.
