In an earlier story on Thursday, it was revealed that a letter from murder suspect and former NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez wrote from jail was up for sale.
Reportedly BarStool Sports and TMZ had a chance to purchase it, and TMZ now has the letter. Assuming it was sold, the final price is unknown. The seller was reportedly asking for $20,000.
The 23-year-old Hernandez was quickly cut from the New England Patriots just before he was officialy charged with first degree murder in the death of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd in June. Hernandez was denied bail and has been incarcerated ever since.
He has apparently written a letter to a friend, and the full transcript is below. TMZ included a picture of the envelope as proof it was penned by Hernandez.
The highlights include Hernandez believing he will be acquitted of all charges, thus proving his doubters wrong. He reaffirmed his faith and said God put him in “this situation for a reason.” Also his friend wasn't supposed to have put it on social media.
Your letter meant alot and was very true! I know everything happens for a reason and I know "GOD" has a plan for me and something good will come out of this. The world just makes things out of false accusations and it will all die down especially when they say NOT GUILTY and all the people who turned on me will feel like crap. I've always been a great person an known for having an amazing heart! I am a strong person and nothing will break me! A C.O. will never nor can they say now for one day have I been down or not with a smile on my face. I know there is a reason I'm going thru this and I will figure it out through my relationship with the Lord. I fell off especially after making all that money but when it's all said and done "GOD" put me in the situation for a reason! I'm humbled by this ALREADY and this will change me forever. At least I'll know my true supporters. Thanks for being one of them!
