Aaron Hernandez and his girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins, are now both in hot water following the death of Odin Lloyd. On Sept. 27, Jenkins was indicted on a perjury charge in connection to Lloyd's murder. According to WHDH, Jenkins -- who has been in hiding since Hernandez's arrest back in June -- was indicted along with Aaron's cousin, Tanya Singleton (she was indicted on a charge of conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact).
As previously reported, questions about Shayanna's involvement in the case have been a concern from the get-go. How did she live at home with Aaron and with all of his guns and not know what kind of business he was into?
Aaron Hernandez and Shayanna Jenkins dated since high school and were very close. It has been widely reported that Jenkins was in the house (seen on the security camera footage) when Aaron came home carrying what appears to be a gun after Lloyd was killed. When police arrived that the former NFLer's home, Jenkins was there and she was questioned several times. It's unknown what information she revealed during these probes.
While Shayanna's involvement wasn't immediately clear, Lloyd was her sister's boyfriend so it was presumed that she knew what was going on to some extent. Her moves over the course of that fateful week in June were watched closely, some even wondering if she was an accessory after the fact -- specifically if she disposed of the still-missing murder weapon.
Shayanna Jenkins will be appearing in court at a later date. Many believe that this is just the tip of the iceberg and that there will be much more dug up on her in the coming weeks. Do you think Shayanna was involved in the death of Odin Lloyd?
