I was skeptical of the Boston Globe's Spotlight series about Aaron Hernandez, because there didn't seem to be much left about his life to uncover.

Since Aaron Hernandez's prison suicide in April 2017, SanSoucie has come out as gay and thinks his late friend and teammate would be proud of him.

An investigative series by The Boston Globe revealed that former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who killed himself in prison past year, was sexually molested as a young boy.

Hernandez, who played three seasons with the Patriots, shockingly took his own life in prison and was diagnosed with a severe case of CTE in light of autopsy reports. But new details are still emerging about Hernandez's time with the Patriots.

Jonathan Hernandez told The Globe that Aaron Hernandez revealed to him later as an adult that he was sexually molested as a young boy. One of Aaron's lawyers also confirmed that he had spoken about sexual abuse as a child, yet neither named the abuser.

"I picked up the phone once to call, to seek help", Jonathan told the Globe.

That, he said, just made it worse.

Their father, Dennis, died when Aaron was in high school.

The piece also reported that both Hernandez boys were beaten by their father, Dennis Hernandez, in Bristol, Conn. Hernandez also reportedly had a relationship with his high school football teammate, Dennis SanSoucie, which the two tried to hide.

He recalled one instance where he and Aaron were walking near the high school on the first day of their junior year when they "were baked".

The relationship coincided with Hernandez' marijuana use, which began with a teammate in high school.

Dennis, according to the report, "had concerns that Aaron, as a boy, had a feminine way about him".

Layer by layer, bit by bit, more is being uncovered about the brief, troubled life of onetime National Football League star-turned-convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez, who is the subject of an exhaustive new investigation by the Boston Globe.

Jonathan Hernandez also said that their father beat them regularly when they did not live up to his standards.
