Is This the Armed Robber Who Stole Aaron Hernandez's Heart in Prison?

Not trying to glamorize sick f**ks who destroy people's lives. But it's hard not to be intrigued by the story of Aaron Hernandez, who rose to be a multimillionaire, Super Bowl-winning football player only to throw it all away under circumstances that increasingly seem to be related to his self-hatred over his sexuality.

The Daily Mail reports that the mystery prisoner who Hernandez wrote to before his shocking suicide is a 22-year-old man jailed for a knife-point robbery at a gas station. Kyle Kennedy was the last person to see the former New England Patriot alive and is now on suicide watch inside the maximum security Souza-Baranowski Corrections Center, sources say. He is the man to whom Hernandez gave a $50,000 watch and other property shortly before he took his life. Hernandez, 27, who was found dead hanging from a bed sheet in his cell early on Wednesday morning last week, left three suicide notes. One was addressed to his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, the second to their 4-year-old daughter, Avielle, and the third to a prisoner, who high level prison sources described as his prison lover.

Hernandez had been serving a life sentence without possibility of parole for the murder of his close friend Odin Lloyd, but just five days earlier had been acquitted of a separate double murder. One theory for Lloyd’s murder is that he knew about Hernandez’s bisexuality and might tell Shenea Jenkins — Hernandez’s fiancée’s sister — who Lloyd was dating. According to Newsweek, Hernandez also 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.

Eventually the suicide notes will become available under state open-records laws. Until then, the speculation continues to build.

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” and 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."
