'Dr Phil' to air interview with Aaron Hernandez's fiancee

"We were going up a ladder to a positive direction", she said. "I did see that it was addressed to Shay instead of you know babe or bae, the way he would refer me as - that was a little odd to me".

"And I won't tell her until she decides to ask or if she asks", she continued. Not the findings, not the investigation.

"It's just not the Aaron that I know", Jenkins-Hernandez said in the interview.

When she was notified of his death, Shayanna didn't believe it.

Jenkins-Hernandez also expressed doubts about whether Hernandez actually wrote the suicide letter addressed to her.

Jenkins-Hernandez told McGraw there was no indication Hernandez was suicidal.

Jenkins-Hernandez made the comments during an interview with Dr. Phil that's set to air in a two-part special May 15-16.

Hernandez was in prison serving a life sentence after he was convicted in April 2015 of murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition for the June 2013 killing of Lloyd in North Attleboro, Massachusetts.

Hernandez was found dead in his cell just days after being found not guilty in a double homicide case from 2012.

Pressed by McGraw on whether Hernandez was a gang member, she said, "Not from knowledge", before conceding she probably wouldn't have known otherwise.

But investigative reports and Hernandez's own note to Jenkins Hernandez suggest he had studied what the ramifications of his death might be.

But whether Hernandez's conviction remains voided is an open question. "I feel like it's easily duplicated, or could be", she said.

Also in the interview, she said Hernandez's initial guilty verdict in the murder of Odin Lloyd - which has since been vacated - surprised her.

Jenkins-Hernandez said she was suspicious of the state's conclusion that Hernandez killed himself. "'You're going to come home, we're going to keep fighting.' But I never would have suspected something like this".

"I wanted him home more than anyone".

Although a state police investigation closed the matter, the late National Football League player's fiancée said, "I don't think this was a suicide", telling Dr. Phil the findings are not believable to her and that she is calling for an inquiry.

But Jenkins-Hernandez said she has no idea who might have killed him if it wasn't a suicide. "I don't think this was a suicide". "He may have been at the wrong place at the wrong time, but I don't think what has been said to be out there to be accurate". However, the Bristol County D.A.'s Office has announced a plan appeal that decision.
