Aaron Hernandez’s Fiancée Said He Was Excited About The Possibility Of Coming Home Right Before Suicide

Aaron Hernandez’s fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, was recently interviewed by TV personality Dr. Phil. In a series of short video clips released today and this week, Jenkins reveals what she thought about Hernandez, his suicide, and the circumstances around his case. She believes to the very end, that not only was Hernandez innocent of all charges, but she also believes he did not commit suicide. Jenkins also denied that Hernandez was bisexual.

She told Dr. Phil that “everyone is entitled to their opinion,” but also said he was innocent and full of life. Jenkins added she hopes people can put all of this behind them so their daughter can have a future.

Jenkins said she spoke to Hernandez the night he died and he made no mention of having suicidal thoughts. Apparently, he was “very positive” and even told Jenkins and his daughter that he was excited about the possibility of coming home.

She claimed that the suicide note recovered at the scene was odd.

She says she believes Hernandez would have addressed the letter and signed off on it differently. Jenkins noted that the handwriting on the note was very similar to Hernandez’s handwriting. She then implied that anyone who wanted to make it look like a suicide had plenty of time to make the handwriting on the note appear authentic.

She’s not sure what purpose, if any, Hernandez had for committing suicide.

She said she won’t “speculate on what he was thinking or why he may or may not have done it.” When asked if perhaps Hernandez committed suicide so that Jenkins could gain access to the six million dollars contractually owed to Hernandez by the New England Patriots, she said “anything’s a possibility,” but she doesn’t personally believe he did it for the money.

Dr. Phil pressed her about rumors that Hernandez was gay (reports say he was bisexual).

Jenkins denied it, saying “The Aaron that I know? No.” She also said that Hernandez flat out told her he wasn’t gay when she asked him about the rumors that she’d heard from his defense attorneys.

She also said she’s never heard of his alleged prison lover, Kyle Kennedy.

She says that rumors of a third suicide note, allegedly left for Kyle Kennedy, were not true. According to Jenkins, there was a note for her, for their daughter and for Hernandez’s lawyers.

Finally, they talked about how Hernandez’s daughter said goodbye.

Holding her daughter up to say her final goodbye, she touched his hand and put half of a locket in his pocket, and keeps the other half with her. Dr. Phil commended Jenkins on her parentage saying “It’s difficult for me to advise families with children about how to handle things with little ones that don’t have a full concept of death.”

Keep your eyes peeled as Dr. Phil will undoubtedly release more videos in the days to come, as he seems to be stretching out the release of these videos for dramatic effect. Which is understandable, since it involved the biggest and most curious NFL related murder trial since OJ.

Corruption Among Border Patrol Agents Highlighted In This Tense Documentary

THE ATLANTIC / YOUTUBE

The drug trade is big business in Mexico, and as a result, many individuals are attracted to the prospect of making big money by making deals with the cartels. In the U.S., it is not uncommon for cartels to pay off border patrol agents, so they can have access to valuable intel or to get a free pass at the border. And while border patrol agents can make some extra cash by turning a blind eye to cartel dealings, they’re not above retaliation, or worse, if something goes wrong. As this short documentary from The Atlantic shows, the relationship between the cartels and border patrol agents can tear apart communities, as well as families. The damage caused by this corruption is likely to get worse.

As demand for border patrol agents increases, the level of corruption is expected to increase as well.

Border Patrol Agent Joel Luna and his brother, Eduardo Luna, a sicario (assassin) for the “Gulf Cartel,” were arrested in connection with the murder of Francisco “Frankie” Palacios Paz, whose body was found floating in the waters of South Padre Island, Texas. The Atlantic reports that only around one percent of agents are likely compromised by cartels, the way Joel Luna was, but that one percent can cause billions of dollars in damage.

In January, President Trump signed an executive order asking for an additional 5,500 agents, and experts are concerned that this demand could lead to a relaxation in the hiring process, allowing less desirable, and potentially easier to bribe, people to fill those positions. The damage caused by agent Joel Luna could pale in comparison to what might come next.

Be sure to check out The Atlantic’s full piece, covering this and so much more, on just how much damage is caused by this kind of corruption.
