*Aaron Hernandez’s fiancee filed a lawsuit against the Dept. of Corrections in an effort to preserve evidence left in his cell that could possibly prove that the former NFL star didn’t commit suicide, reports TMZ.
Shayanna Jenkins, the mother of Aaron’s 4-year-old daughter, filed court docs Wednesday asking a superior court judge to prevent state officials from destroying video recordings, physical evidence and prison records connected to Hernandez.
Aaron’s attorney, Jose Baez, has suggested Hernandez’s death was a murder, not a suicide, and he vowed to run his own investigation. Jenkins appears to be contributing to the cause with this lawsuit.
The matter is scheduled to go before a judge on Friday.
Hernandez died on Wednesday morning after prison officials say they found him hanging from a bed sheet in his cell. Officials say Aaron left suicide notes in his cell and blocked the door to prevent officers from rescuing him.
