It’s reported that the late Hernandez did not leave behind a will, and his estate was described in court documents as having “no monies available and no identifiable personal assets.”
Due to the estate not being worth anything, Hernandez’s fiancé, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez, has been given the power to sell his North Attleborough, Massachusetts home for nearly $1.3 million.
27-year-old Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell last week with three suicide notes and an open bible. A medical examiner later ruled his death a suicide.
The former New England Patriots tight end was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for the 2013 murder of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.
Just days before his death, Hernandez was found not guilty in the 2012 shooting deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.
According to Spotrac, Hernandez signed a seven-year, $39.582 million contract with the Pats in 2012, but he was released in 2013. Of that money, $15.95 million was guaranteed.
