Aaron Hernandez's 2nd Letter from Jail Revealed

Aaron Hernandez has written another letter from prison, and TMZ has obtained and published his correspondence.

The site writes, "TMZ has obtained a second letter Hernandez recently wrote behind bars, thanking a fan for a Facebook support page she started... a page he can't read because jail is an Internet-free zone."

The site added:

Also, FYI, Hernandez is now aware that his jail letters are making headlines.  We spoke to the sheriff at the jail who tells us, Hernandez has been warned to be careful with his letters because TMZ keeps publishing them.

Here is the letter:

It remains to be seen if TMZ also paid $18,000 for this letter, as the site reportedly paid Sportsworld, Inc. for the first letter Hernandez penned from prison, according to John Zaremba of the Boston Herald.

In Zaremba's report, he notes that Sportsworld, Inc. verified Hernandez's signature. It's unclear how the sports memorabilia store obtained the letter.

In the former letter, Hernandez maintained his innocence while also requesting his letter be kept private. So much for that request. Perhaps he should stop responding to letters if he truly wants them to remain private, as clearly those wishes won't be met.

One thing is for certain: $18,000 is a lot to pay for one letter from prison.

This is just the latest chapter in the bizarre and troubling case of Hernandez, currently charged with murdering Odin Lloyd, along with five additional gun charges. Hernandez is also reportedly the center of a grand jury investigation stemming from a 2012 double homicide in Boston.

While these correspondences paint him in a better light than we've seen since his arrest, they do little to dispel the bizarre and disturbing nature of this case.
