Aaron Hernandez's private funeral in his hometown of Bristol, Connecticut, yesterday marked a haunting scene.
But nothing was more chilling than the sight of the former NFL star's fiancée Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez walking their four-year-old daughter, Avielle, into the procession to pay final respects to the man who was found guilty two years ago of the 2013 first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd and took his own life last Wednesday in a prison suicide.
Here are some of the sad photos from yesterday's funeral.
What a painful day it must have been for them.
That little girl didn't ask to be born into this. So sad. Attendees began pouring into the O’Brien Funeral Home in Bristol shortly before noon yesterday.
