The usually immaculately turned-out Jenkins-Hernandez appeared tired and drawn as she left the row house shortly before sunset.
They kept the relationship going even after he left her behind to attend the University of Florida while she went to community college in their home town of Bristol, Connecticut.
She was by his side throughout his time in the NFL, even adopting his last name, and in October 2012 - during the baby shower for Avielle - he proposed marriage.
Jenkins-Hernandez stood by her man throughout the trial, and appeared as a witness for the defense - which is believed to have led to the sisters becoming estranged.
She also appeared throughout his trial for the 2012 murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, for which he was found not guilty just days before he killed himself.
His death has officially been ruled a suicide.
