'Dr Phil' to air 2nd interview with Hernandez's fiancee

FILE - In this March 30, 2017, file photo, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, fiancee of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez, testifies in Suffolk Superior Court during his trial for the July 2012 killings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in Boston.

Oddly, Jenkins-Hernandez insisted to Dr. Phil that her hubby-to-be was optimistic about returning home in a phone call the night before he killed himself.

Immediately following, McGraw asked if she would have known about any gang connections, to which she replied that she probably would not have.

"I thought it was a note of love", she said.

PHOTOS: Partying Before Prison!

A Department of Corrections report found that Hernandez had hanged himself with a bed sheet, had spread shampoo all over the floor of his cell and jammed the door with cardboard.

Jenkins-Hernandez expressed doubts about the investigation into Hernandez's death, saying the findings didn't seem "believable".

Trump Meets Palestinian Leader Abbas to Weigh Peace Prospects
According to former White House official Dennis Ross, Trump was helping Abbas by extending the White House invite. He said "it's about time" for Israel to stop occupying Palestinian lands and to recognize a Palestinian state.

"I just know that the feedback I was getting from our last talk had nothing to do with any suicidal thoughts". I think that if he would've done something like this, he would've been at his worst.

Still wearing her engagement ring, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez told Phil McGraw of the talk show "Dr. Phil" that the guilty verdict in Odin Lloyd's murder, for which Hernandez was serving a life sentence, was "a shock to all of us".

We pay for juicy info! "I feel like he could have been saved or something could have been done or whatever the case may have been, I feel like someone was in the wrong somewhere".

Hernandez was convicted of that murder in 2015 and sentenced to life in prison. "It seems so improbable that I can understand why someone would think that he was murdered or it cannot be him". "I thought that this was some cruel person. playing a trick on me", she told the show's host, Dr. Phil McGraw, crying. "I feel like it's easily duplicated, or could be", she said.

Jenkins-Hernandez and the former National Football League player, who were high school sweethearts and became engaged in 2012 before their daughter was born, never married, but Jenkins-Hernandez said, "I changed my name for the simple fact that we were a family". He killed himself on April 19 at the Souza Baranowski facility in Shirley, days after he was found not guilty on double murder charges. "It's kind of like I was just the chaperone, in a sense", she said.

It has also been reported that Hernandez spent at least two weeks planning his suicide, going so far as to give away his possessions, and carried it out despite being acquitted of two more murder counts just five days before he took his life.
