Results from toxicology tests revealed on Saturday indicate the body of Aaron Hernandez had zero traces of synthetic marijuana as previously indicated.

According to WCVB, the autopsy performed on Hernandez following his suicide last week showed no illegal drugs or ‘K2’ synthetic marijuana.

Previous reports alleged ‘K2’ may have been detected in his system.

The former tight end for the New England Patriots hung himself on April 19th, inside his jail cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, where he was serving a life sentence for murder.

Inmates at the facility told prison investigators they believed Aaron Hernandez was high on the synthetic drug when he took his own life.

Meanwhile, Hernandez’s fiancee Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez is claiming the former NFL star left her pennyless.

According to the Boston Herald, court documents recently disclosed that Hernandez’s estate is worth a dollar value of zero.

Jenkins and her attorney indicated in an affidavit filed on Wednesday in probate court that Hernandez’s estate is worth “$0.00” with “no monies and no identifiable personal assets.”

However, Jenkins did reveal an offer to purchase Hernandez’s North Attleboro home — worth close to $1.3 million. The mother of Odin Lloyd, who Hernandez was convicted of killing in 2013 has filed a wrongful-death suit seeking any profits from the sale of assets.

Lloyd, a semi-pro football player who was dating the sister of the athlete’s fiancee when he was shot and killed.

Hernandez committed suicide days after he was acquitted in a double murder case stemming from 2012 drive-by shooting in downtown Boston.

His estate in North Attleboro has been on the market for more than a year. The Colonial-style house has a pool with a waterfall, a theater, and a sauna.

On Wednesday, the court accepted a request by Hernandez’s fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez, to expand her authority over the estate to sell the home.

Jenkins Hernandez is looking to preserve whatever she receives for the home to cover damages granted in the Lloyd case “and any potential future actions arising out of decedent’s death,” the court records reveal.

Attorneys for Jenkins Hernandez and Lloyd’s mother, Ursula Ward, asked on Thursday that the identity of the potential buyer remain under wraps. Ward’s lawyer also filed documents changing the defendant named in the lawsuit from Hernandez to his estate.

Attorneys for Hernandez’s estate, his fiancee, and their daughter wrote to prison officials and the prosecutor’s office on Thursday asking them to stop leaks to the press about letters and other notes written by Hernandez discovered in his cell, along with certain details of the investigation.

The letter said the distribution of the information “continues to cause the family emotional distress during an already difficult period.”

On Monday, state Secretary of Public Safety Dan Bennett, responding to the remarks made by one of Hernandez’s lawyers in court, said the state would do “everything to find out who is producing this information because some of it is coming from agencies.”
