Aaron was a star NFL player for the New England Patriots. His career came to an end when Aaron was sent to jail for killing his future brother in law. In 2017, he was found dead in his prison cell from suicide and note he left behind calling Shayanna his "perfect partner". After his demise, scientists at Boston University determined that Aaron had extreme brain damage because of the damage he took during his football career.

In interviews about her deceased fiance, Shayanna cried as she said she still thinks Hernandez was honest about the three homicides he was blamed for.

The docuseries included insights concerning the former NFL player like his sexuality and relationships in jail. When asked about the content in the documentary, Shayanna said even if Aaron was a swinger, it wouldn't have changed how she felt about him. "It’s not shameful and I don’t think anybody should feel shameful on who they are inside regardless of who they love. I think it’s a beautiful thing. I just wish I was able to tell him that."
