I will update this as I learn more, stay tuned**
Stemming from Bristol, Connecticut; Aaron Hernandez came from a family of sports. His father, uncle and older brother all participated sports. After the loss of his father due to complications from hernia surgery, it seemed Hernandez was seriously affected. Nevertheless, he made it big in football being signed by the New England patriots for a whopping $40 million dollars.
He now will be in prison for life without any possibility of parole for the first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd, unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition. Both Hernandez and Lloyd had gone out clubbing in June of 2013. The story goes that Hernandez was upset at Lloyd because the latter may have overheard a conversation about a double murder in Boston which Hernandez may have been involved in as well. At 2:29 a.m. on the 17th of June, Hernandez picked up Lloyd from his home in Dorchester in the city of Boston in a rented silver Nissan Altima along with other friends, Carlos Ortiz, and Ernest Wallace and that was the last time anyone would see him. Lloyd had texted his sister with the following:
“Did you see who I was with?”
“Who,” she answered.
“NFL,just so you know.”
This text seemed to indicate that Lloyd was concerned and wanted to let his sister know who he was with for her information. Lloyd then was found in an industrial field with gunshots to his back and torso. While there was no murder weapon found, home surveillance shows Hernandez with a gun in his hand on the night of the shooting death of Lloyd. Moreover, evidence of his footprint and the rented silver Nissan Altima.
Lloyd was presented as a hard working son who rode his bike every day to his job.
