Ex-NFL star Hernandez's fiancée thought death was hoax: TV interview

The fiancée of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez initially thought reports last month of his prison suicide were a cruel hoax, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez said in an interview to be broadcast next week on CBS television's "Dr. Phil" show. The former National Football League athlete hanged himself in the Massachusetts prison cell where he was serving a life sentence for murder, but his death shocked his family as it came just days after a jury had cleared him of a separate double-murder charge. "I thought it was a hoax, that this was some cruel person playing a trick on me," Jenkins-Hernandez told longtime talk show host Phil McGraw.
