Aaron Hernandez's fiancée has been spotted out for the first time since the former New England Patriots player committed suicide on Wednesday.
Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, 27, was seen leaving her mother's home in Bristol, Connecticut.
Alongside her was the couple's four-year-old daughter Avielle.
Daily Mail reports that Jenkins-Hernandez was visually "tired and drawn," as she departed the home with her daughter and her friend. She and her daughter were last seen in the Massachusetts courtroom on April 14 as Hernandez was acquitted of double murder, just days before his death.
Jenkins-Hernandez became engaged to Hernandez in 2012 after she became pregnant, but the couple had known each other since they were kids.
Hernandez's fiancée was indirectly connected with the murder that sent him to prison for life. It was Jenkins' sister Shaneah that introduced Hernandez to Odin Lloyd, the victim in that case.
She took Hernandez's name after he was convicted of fatally shooting Lloyd.
Numerous developments have surfaced since the former tight end hung himself. Most recently, his family revealed plans to donate his brain for CTE research.
