Details Emerge About Aaron Hernandez’s Alleged Prison Lover Who He Gifted A $50,000 Watch To Before His Death

by 3 years ago

Every time I see an Aaron Hernandez headline nowadays, I automatically assume it’s #FakeNews–“Aaron Hernandez Acquitted of Murder,” “Hernandez Kills Himself In Prison,” “Hernandez’s Lawyer Denies Suicide,” “Aaron Hernandez: Gay?”

The three-part Aaron Hernandez Netflix series that hasn’t been made yet but definitely will is going to be absolutely lit.

And now we can add another little wrinkle to the narrative.

Yesterday, Newsweek’s Michelle McPhee, who has been covering the Hernandez murder case for some time, reported that Hernandez’s sexuality was once probed as a potential motive in the Odin Lloyd case. According to Newsweek, Hernandez had a long-term gay lover before he was imprisoned who was due to give evidence at his murder trial. But shortly before the case he transferred a large sum of money into the man’s bank account.

Daily Mail then came out with a story that claimed that of the three suicide notes Hernandez left before his death, one was addressed to his jailhouse lover and allegedly the last one who saw Hernandez alive. New details have emerged about Kyle Kennedy, a 22-year-old who was jailed for a knife-point robbery in Northbridge, Mass.

Hernandez reportedly gave the family of his alleged gay lover a $50,000 wrist watch before he committed suicide, the most prized possession among the radio, TV, MP4 player and headphones he gave away before hanging himself in his cell.

Kennedy, who robbed a Cumberland Farms in January 2015 wearing a black mask and sporting a butcher-style knife, led police on a high speed chase and after being arrested ran out of the police station in an attempted escape.

In an online profile on the website Write A Prisoner, Kennedy described his sexual orientation as ‘straight.’

‘Hello, my name is Kyle,’ he wrote on the site in May last year. ‘I signed up on this website so I can correspond and possibly build friendships with people from around the world.

‘I stand at 5’ 10”, I weigh 175 pounds, I have brown hair and brown eyes. I am also heavily tattooed. I work out, read books and write to help me pass the time while incarcerated,’ he added.

‘My hobbies on the street include racing motocross, building and customizing cars and motorcycles and doing anything that includes the outdoors. I am currently working to attain my Barbering license.’

He ended his profile with the words: ‘If you want to get to know me, I’m just a stamp away! Thank you, Kyle.’

Obviously Hernandez’s sexual orientation by itself is an erroneous aspect of his life, but I get the feeling Hernandez’s gruesome crimes may have been committed to cover up a double life I’m not sure anyone’s peeled back the layers of.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
