Shayanna Jenkins reportedly cried when told ‘drug dealer’ Odin Lloyd had been killed
Aaron Hernandez’s fiancee Shayanna Jenkins reportedly answered several questions for police officers before Hernandez allegedly called her on the phone and told her to stop. According to police reports released to the public on Tuesday, Jenkins immediately began to cry when she was informed that Lloyd had been killed.
Jenkins told police that Lloyd was dating her sister Shaneah Jenkins, which Hernandez also confirmed when he was first questioned by police. She later claimed that she was not very familiar with him and did not know his family or any of his friends. Shayanna said that Hernandez knew Lloyd through Shaneah, and that she last saw Lloyd on Saturday, June 15 at approximately 10:30 a.m.
Despite telling authorities she was not very familiar with Lloyd, Jenkins allegedly went on to say that she knew he “smoked marijuana and was also a marijuana dealer.” She said she often overheard Lloyd talking on his cell phone about what she assumed were marijuana sales because his phone was constantly ringing and he spoke in “lingo.”
Hernandez was at the North Attleboro Police department, where he had agreed to go and answer some questions, at the time Jenkins spoke to officers on June 17. Jenkins provided investigators with a cell phone number for Hernandez, which an officer called on the spot and hung up when Hernandez answered.
Another interesting piece of information Jenkins shared with investigators had to do with the surveillance system at Hernandez’s home. She explained how it worked and said that it was recently installed because there had been several recent break-in attempts at the residence.
Jenkins then told officers that she was unsure who Hernandez went out with the night of June 16 into the early morning of June 17, when Lloyd was murdered. It was at that point that Hernandez allegedly called her on her cell phone and told her that his sports agent said she should not speak to investigators.
