Below is a letter that Aaron Hernandez has written to one of his “true supporters” from prison in which he proclaims his innocence and says he can’t wait to play football and “prove the haters wrong” again.
The letter, which was obtained by TMZ and verified by law enforcement officials on Thursday, references God and “the Lord” quite a bit. Hernandez repeatedly declares his innocence, saying his murder charges are God’s plan and that everything happens for a reason.
Here are some highlights:
“The world just makes things out of false accusations … and it will all die down, especially when they say NOT GUILTY”
“All the people who turned on me will feel like crap.”
“God put me in this situation for a reason.”
“Can’t wait to sign [autographs] again when I’m playing again an [sic] prove all the haters WRONG.
As for the fan who received the letter, he wrote Hernandez first because he was in the same jail 15 years ago, and wanted to reach out to Hernandez to give him some encouragement.
And, of course, he wanted Hernandez to write back so that he could immediately sell the letter for profit. Guess he didn’t care too much for Hernandez’s pleas to “keep this off social media.”
Ballsy move by the recipient to sell this letter. He better hope and pray that Hernandez hears a guilty verdict. After all, we’ve seen how he (allegedly) handles betrayal.
