The former New England Patriots tight end died of an apparent suicide last month while serving a life sentence following a murder conviction. Jenkins-Hernandez discusses a multitude of topics with Dr. Phil and opens up about their final conversation.

“I thought it was a hoax, that this was some cruel person playing a trick on me,” Jenkins-Hernandez said regarding the moment she received the phone call that Aaron was dead.

Jenkins-Hernandez says Aaron was upbeat in their final conversation.

“I felt like we were looking so bright. We were going up a ladder to a positive direction,” she said. “Our last talk had nothing to do with suicidal thoughts.”
