Larry Army., Jr., the attorney for jailed inmate Kyle Kennedy, said at a press conference that his client received a note from Hernandez that said:
“I think I’m going to hang it up, lol.”
Kennedy. 22. thought Hernandez was joking, so he didn’t think anything of it, Army said.
Kennedy’s relationship with Hernandez has been the focus of intense speculation, with contradictory reports about whether they were “close friends,” As Army described, or prison lovers, as some have speculated. This is what Kennedy had to say about all the speculation.

“I miss my friend. I’d like to send my condolences to his fiancée, his mother and his daughter. I would ask the media to respect the privacy of my family. This is a private matter that doesn’t concern them.”Advertisement
