Sqlite driver behavior with byte array, utf8 encoding

In Visual Studio, using C#, I converted a string of text to a byte[] using System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(str). I stored that byte[] in a sqlite database. I can retrieve the data in C#, visual studio, decode it back to a string, and read it. When I open that database in Linqpad, however, and query the data, the byte array that comes back is larger, and decoding it brings back an illegible string.

Thoughs?
