Tawdry details about Aaron Hernandez’s life and suicide continue to be released. (The Sun Chronicle/Pool Photo via USA TODAY Sports)

When Aaron Hernandez was alive, he was viewed as a murderer who would likely spend the rest of his existence behind bars. But the disgraced ex-NFL star is suffering an even worse fate in death. He’s become a tabloid sideshow, with salacious details and rumors about his life getting leaked with little regard on seemingly a weekly basis.

It’s been more than one month since Hernandez hanged himself in his cell at Souza Baranowski Correction Center in Shirley, five days after he was acquitted of double-murder charges. Since then, an avalanche of documents pertaining to his time in prison have been released, painting the portrait of a tortured soul who frequently clashed with officials.

The revelations range from troubling to downright sad. One batch of records shows Hernandez racked up multiple serious offenses while he was incarcerated, including at least three for fighting and one for possessing a nearly six-inch metal shiv. Another set of prison documents recount an evening in which Hernandez devoured 20 honey buns from a mistaken jail commissary delivery, because he was so hungry. The former Patriots tight end also once ate a letter, so guards wouldn’t be able to read it.

All the while, sordid hearsay about Hernandez’s sexuality continue to circulate. Last month, Boston-based investigative reporter Michele McPhee said on Kirk & Callahan investigators were looking into Hernandez’s sexuality as a possible motive for the 2013 Odin Lloyd murder. According to McPhee, Hernandez was carrying out an intimate relationship with a male high school classmate, and Lloyd had knowledge of the romance.

Around the same time, the Daily Mail also started publishing stories about Hernandez’s alleged prison boyfriend. He was identified as Kyle Kennedy, a 22-year-old armed robber who reportedly had grown close to the one-time NFL star while they were imprisoned together. The story reached a fever pitch late last month when Kennedy’s lawyer held a press conference, claiming Hernandez left his client a $47,000 watch and addressed one of his three suicide notes to him. Lawrence F. Army Jr. didn’t address reports about the nature of their relationship, saying Kennedy would tell the story himself one day.

All the while, Hernandez’s fiancee has engaged in a public campaign of her own, seeking to dispel rumors about his sexuality. In an interview last week with Dr. Phil, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez called the gay stories a “crock of bull.” She also denied Hernandez had left Kennedy anything.

It’s difficult to have sympathy for Jenkins-Hernandez, considering her apparent complicity in her fiancee’s purported evil deeds. She testified in both of his murder trials, claiming ignorance to his lifestyle and actions. In the Dr. Phil sit-down, she said she “more or less cooked and made food” for Hernandez’s friends, and then got out of the way.

But still, there’s something unsavory about watching a widow be confronted with tawdry rumors about her fiancee’s alleged secret sex life. Further compounding this feeling of uneasiness is the fact that the couple’s four-year-old daughter, Avielle, will be exposed to all of this one day.

That’s not to say Hernandez’s sexuality isn’t a worthwhile story. It may have been motivation for a murder, which makes it paramount to the public interest. The details involving his rumored relationship with Kennedy are less relevant, but inevitable. Hernandez killed himself in spectacular fashion, leaving blood on his cell’s walls and writing the biblical verse “John 3:16″ in red marker on his forehead. Palace intrigue surrounds every high-profile suicide, especially when it involves an NFL star-turned-murderer.

The Hernandez interest likely won’t dissipate any time soon, either, considering we still don’t know the contents of his three suicide notes. The letter he purportedly left for Jenkins-Hernandez was released earlier this month, though she questions its legitimacy. There was also one addressed to his daughter.

The intended recipient of the third note is unclear, however. Jenkins-Hernandez denies it was left for Kennedy, saying it was meant for Hernandez’s attorney. Jose Baez, who says he’s conducting an investigation into Hernandez’s death, has been peddling that claim for weeks.

At this point, everybody surrounding Hernandez seems to be focused on protecting their own self-interests. For his fiancee, it’s about resuscitating her reputation and perhaps making a little coin, since Hernandez’s estate is reportedly worthless. Baez, a shameless publicity hound, probably wants to milk the high-profile case for all its worth.

Hernandez’s brother spoke out of the first time Tuesday, too, promising to “tell Aaron’s truth.” In other words, he appears to be begging for his own highly paid appearance on a syndicated daytime talk show.

Since Kennedy’s attorney refused to say whether his client was romantically involved with Hernandez, one can assume that Kennedy is also holding out for a pricey tell-all interview. Recently revealed documents in which Hernandez asked to bunk with an inmate whom he calls his “heart” lend credence to the notion he may have been bisexual or gay.

The drip-drop of Hernandez revelations will probably continue to come out . The bloodthirsty media –– WEEI.com included –– will be there every step of the way.

The possibility of spending the rest of his life locked up in relative anonymity may have been too much for the 27-year-old Hernandez to stand. But this alternative is far worse.
