Kyle Kennedy was intended recipient of third Aaron Hernandez letter, lawyer says
A judge ruled on Monday that all three of the suicide notes Aaron Hernandez wrote before he killed himself in prison last week were to be released to the former NFL star’s family, but one of the letters was apparently intended for someone who hasn’t received it.
The attorney for Kyle Kennedy, a 22-year-old inmate at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center, says one of the three notes Hernandez wrote was addressed to his client.
“A letter was left to my client, but neither I, nor my client, have seen the letter,” attorney Larry Army Jr. said in a statement Monday, according to FOX 25 in Boston. “We will be requesting that the letter be turned over to my client as soon as possible.”
FOX 25 reporter Catherine Parrotta later released a photo of Kennedy:

Kennedy’s family also issued a statement that seemed to acknowledge the 22-year-old knew Hernandez.
“Our thoughts right now are with Aaron Hernandez’s family, as well as our son,” the statement read. “We understand the broad public interest in this case, but we ask for privacy as we learn the facts.”
There has been conflicting information about the intended recipients of Hernandez’s three suicide notes. Some reports say Hernandez wrote to his girlfriend, daughter and legal team while others claimed Hernandez wrote one to a boyfriend he had in prison. You can read more about that here.
Hernandez’s funeral was held on Monday in his hometown of Bristol, Conn.
