What should you know about the Aaron Hernandez documentary on Netflix?
He was a normal teenager with a bright future. He went from a high school athlete to a tight end for the New England Patriots. His career ended after he was convicted of one murder and was allegedly involved with two others. As reported by the New Hampshire Union Leader, Hernandez’s family members didn’t want to participate in the documentary.
The documentary takes a look into Hernandez’s childhood. He remembered the times when his father treated his mother poorly. He blamed his mom for his rough upbringing.
“I was the happiest (expletive) little kid in the world, and you (expletive) me up. And I just lost my father, and I had to go to college. And I had nobody,” Hernandez told his mother during a phone call from jail.
In a separate phone conversation, he tells her that he can’t trust her. He reveals to his mom that she’s going to die without ever getting to know who her son really is. Back in 2018, Hernandez’s brother revealed to People that the athlete experienced emotional, physical, and sexual abuse before dedicating his life to murder.
What happened to the former football player and his fiance?
Hernandez and Jenkins-Hernandez dated for several years before his legal issues. He’s also the father of Jenkins-Hernandez’s oldest daughter, Avielle, whom the couple welcomed in 2012. Engaged, they never married.
