— The anonymous tipster who reached out to Aaron Hernandez‘s lawyers and claimed a member of the jury hid information is a woman who wrote sexually explicit letters to the imprisoned former Patriot, the prosecution said in a filing released Monday.

Prosecutor William McCauley called the bid by Hernandez’s lawyer to pursue the woman’s tip an “unwarranted fishing expedition.”

According to Hernandez’s defense team, the woman called multiple times after Hernandez was convicted of first degree murder in April and claimed that one of the jurors was a co-worker who hid the fact that they had information about Hernandez’s 2012 double-murder case.

The prosecution says the woman, whose father served time in jail with Hernandez, does not in fact work with the juror — and made other comments that are not truthful. The prosecution admitted the woman has had extensive contact with Hernandez, but still suggests the information she has is worth pursing.

Hernandez is engaged to Shayanna Jenkins, with whom he has a young daughter. According to the Providence Journal, Jenkins was wearing a wedding band and an engagement ring Monday. Now living in Rhode Island, Jenkins has petitioned a probate court in that state to add the surname Hernandez to her name to match the surname of her daughter, Avielle Jenkins-Hernandez.

Hernandez, who was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, is awaiting trial in the double-murder case, to which he has pleaded not guilty.

— The father of the 9-year-old bat boy from Kansas who died Sunday after being hit in the head by a bat a day earlier spoke Monday of Kaiser Carlile’s happiness being a part of the team and expressed no hard feelings for the accident.

“There is no kind of remorse or anger towards what happened,” Chad Carlile said at a press conference with the team. “This is something that obviously was a tragedy. I want … no bad comments. Nothing bad. I mean, this is all for the good. If anyone can gain anything out of this it’s the fact that he was happy. He loved it, and the team we are obviously for loved him as well.”

A 9-year-old bat boy who was struck in the head by a batter warming up in the on-deck circle during the National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, Kansas, over the weekend died of his injuries, the team announced.

Kaiser Carlile, a bat boy for the Liberal Bee Jays, an amateur baseball team from Kansas, was retrieving a bat when he was accidentally hit on the back of the head by a bat swung by the next batter during Saturday’s game.

Carlile, who was wearing a helmet, received medical assistance from home plate umpire Mark Goldfeder — a long-time paramedic — before being taken away in an ambulance.

The team posted an announcement on its Facebook page late Sunday reading:

With the permission of the family, and with much sorrow and a very broken hear, I regretfully inform everyone that Kaiser Carlile passed away earlier this evening. Please keep his family and our team in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you for all the support during this ordeal!

Carlile’s father’s cousin, Mike Carlile, is the general manager of the team.

“We just lost a little, 9-year-old Bee Jay and it’s incredibly sad,” Mike Carlile told the Wichita Eagle. “No one wrote a book to tell us how to do this. We’re just dealing with it the best way we know how, and that’s to keep coming out and keep honoring Kaiser on the field.”

After both teams prayed on the field for Carlile, Liberal went on to beat San Diego in Saturday’s game. The Bee Jays also won their game Sunday over the Haysville Aviators, 8-0, after being informed of Carlile’s death. Mike Carlile said Kaiser’s parents wanted the team to continue playing — and winning. The parents attended Sunday’s game and talked with the players afterward in an emotional meeting.

“It is such an unfortunate accident and all we can do is be strong for the family,” Bee Jays manager Adam Anderson said. “That’s all they wanted us to do was go out there and play a good baseball game, and that’s what we did.”
