Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez filed a motion against the Massachusetts Department of Corrections on Wednesday to prevent state officials from destroying any physical evidence, video recordings and personal records related to the late tight-end.
TMZ reports the filing was a part of a larger effort to prove the former New England Patriots player didn't kill himself spearheaded by Aaron's lawyer, Jose Baez.
The DOC has declared Hernandez's death a suicide, but conspiracy theories have run rampant online in recent days. Many find the timing of the suicide odd, as Aaron had just been acquitted on a double murder charge and was appealing the initial charge that landed him in jail for life.
"Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window," the official DoC statement read. "Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items."
This is the latest revelation in what's already been a bizarre case.
News broke on Friday that Aaron reportedly had a gay lover behind bars who was last to speak to the deceased. He also allegedly soaped up the floor of his cell to prevent himself from backing out of the hanging.
Jenkins was last spotted this morning leaving her mother's Connecticut home.
