Via: Love B Scott: It was 5:27 a.m. on April 19 when a prison official called Jenkins-Hernandez to say the former NFL star had been found dead at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, she said.

I thought that this was some cruel person … playing a trick on me,” she told the show’s host, Dr. Phil McGraw, crying. “He said that Aaron was found in his cell and he was deceased, he was being transferred to the hospital and that’s when I said immediately that I was coming; he told me to wait for the medical examiner and I wasn’t taking that for an answer.”
