Attorney: Inmate believes Hernandez left him note, gifted $47000 watch

"The request, while initially approved, was later terminated by the supervisor of the jail", said Army, managing partner of the Boston law firm Army & Roche.

Although Aaron Hernandez's attorney, Jose Baez, has denied that a third suicide note was written to inmate Kyle Kennedy, Kennedy's own attorney, Larry Army Jr., has proclaimed that Hernandez not only wrote his client a letter, but also promised him a watch worth almost $50,000.

Hernandez was discovered hanging in his single cell on April 19 at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass., while serving a lifetime sentence without parole for the murder of Lloyd.

BOSTON (AP) — Aaron Hernandez hinted about suicide weeks before he was found hanging by a bedsheet in prison last week, according to a jailhouse friend who once sought to share a cell with the former National Football League star.

There are reports that one of three notes Hernandez left in his cell was for Kennedy. Kennedy's name does not appear in the writings delivered to the family in accordance with a judge's ruling Monday, the Boston Globe reported.

Army also claims Hernandez gifted a $50,000 watch to Kennedy on his 22nd birthday.

Army said his client hasn't been asked questions by the media about his relationship with Hernandez, and it's an "impossibility" for him to speak to reporters now because he is on suicide watch. During a news conference Wednesday, Army provided evidence that he says proves the relationship between Kyle Kennedy and Aaron Hernandez.

Jose Baez, attorney for the former footballer and his family said: "Rumours of letters to a gay lover, in or out of prison, are false". The first two letters were addressed to Hernandez' fiancée and the mother of his daughter, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, and to his young daughter, officials have said. "This is a private matter that doesn't concern them".

After the finding, inside the prison Hernandez committed suicide, an operation was immediately carried out by the Massachusetts State Police troopers to look for contraband, including paper soaked with the synthetic Marijuana known as K2.

Kennedy, through his lawyer Army Jr, revealed earlier this week that he was "deeply saddened" by the loss of his friend Hernandez.

"Our team is doing serious legal work", Baez said. Hernandez was convicted of killing Lloyd in 2015.

Army said his client didn't take the comment seriously at the time.

'Quite frankly, I'm surprised more inmates have not come forward to try and make money off the tabloids'.
