BOSTON (AP) — Five letters authenticated by state officials show Aaron Hernandez asked prison officials to share a cell with inmates he described as close friends.
In a June 2015 letter, Hernandez asks to be moved to another part of prison where he says he has no enemies and to “celly up” with another inmate.
Hernandez wrote in a similar letter that he and an inmate “are very close and have been since the streets.” He says the inmate is “like a real brother.”
The inmates’ names are redacted in the letters.
