On April 19, sometime before 3 a.m., Aaron Hernandez, the previous celebrity brand new England Patriots tight end, scrawled three notes—one to their fiancee, the caretaker of their young girl, someone to that child and a 3rd to their close jail friend—and put them close to a Bible in the solitary jail cellular into the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.
The Bible ended up being exposed to a element of this new Testament, John 3:16, « For God therefore liked the entire world which he offered his one and only son, that whosoever believes in him will never perish but have eternal life. » He had scrawled that verse on red ink to his forehead, and in addition made markings on their fingers and foot with this red pen, as though mimicking the stigmata linked to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
