A scandal sheet has released a letter that is reportedly from former NFL star, Aaron Hernandez, sent to a person being referred to as his ‘pen-pal’. 

Aaron Hernandez

A fan/pen-pal has managed to send words of encouragement to the former Patriots player and in return Aaron Hernandez sent the below message back, from his temporary new home in Bristol County House of Correction in North Dartmouth, Mass.

The transcript:
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!

I can't wait to sign this again when I'm playing again an prove all the haters an da talkers WRONG.
P.S. the pictures are definitely hanging on my walls and def meant alot! Thanks again brotha!
*Keep this off social media PLEASE!

It’s interesting to note that the ‘friend’ or pen-pal has managed to remain completely anonymous. Perhaps they have already gone into some kind of FBI witness protection program, as you will note that Hernandez implored the individual to ‘keep this off the social media’, which the pen-pal duly ignored.

Or, did he/she?

Perhaps there was no pen-pal. Perhaps the scandal-sheet in question pulled off a magnificent ‘catfish’ job on Hernandez, befriending him in the guise of a pen-pal and then gleefully printing his reply the moment they got their sweaty little hands on it.

Isn’t that perhaps more believable than someone risking the wrath of an alleged triple homicide perpetrator?
