Aaron Hernandez Home Back on Market After Sale Falls Through



    Aaron Hernandez's home is back on the market after an agreement to sell it for $1.3 million fell through, a lawyer for the former NFL star's fiancee told a judge on Monday.

    George Leontire also told a Bristol Probate and Family Court judge that investigators have discovered additional Hernandez assets, including a 401(k) plan valued at approximately $167,000 and another account totaling $50,000, according to the Boston Herald. No beneficiary for either was named.

    The revelations came in a court hearing regarding the wrongful death lawsuit brought against the estate of the former New England Patriots tight end by the mother of Odin Lloyd. Hernandez was convicted of killing Lloyd and sentenced to life in prison. Because the case was under appeal when Hernandez hanged himself in his cell in April, the trial judge vacated the conviction.

    The estate has also been sued by the families of two men Hernandez was acquitted of killing just days before his death.

    After Hernandez's death, the families of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado said they would continue to pursue their wrongful death claims against Hernandez's estate.

    Hernandez bought the 7,100-square-foot home in North Attleborough in 2012 for $1.3 million. Proceeds from any sale could be used to pay damages in the lawsuits.

    In another development, Leontire filed an emergency motion with the court to extend the appointment of Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez, as the estate's special personal representative.

    Marlee Cowan, an attorney for Lloyd's estate, urged the appointment of an independent special personal representative, arguing that because Jenkins Hernandez's daughter is the estate's primary beneficiary there is a conflict of interest.

    The judge took both requests under advisement.
