– Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is due to make another court appearance in the murder case against him.A probable cause hearing for Hernandez is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in Attleboro District Court. He has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old Boston semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 in an industrial park in North Attleborough near Hernandez’s home. He had been shot five times.Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyd’s killing because he was upset at him for talking to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub a few days earlier.They say he and two associates, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, drove with Lloyd to the industrial park. Authorities have not said who fired the shots, but documents filed in Florida – and released since Hernandez’s last court appearance – paint the former Patriot as the triggerman. According to the records, Ortiz told police that Wallace said Hernandez fired the shots.
Here is an article about Hernandez’s life from high school on, both off and on the field.
His apparent use of violence prior to this murder shows, to me, that the young man had problems from an early age. His family apparently blamed his “changed attitude” on the death of his father.
As outstanding as he was in playing football, several teams were not interested in him because of his off field life style. It will be interesting to see how this trail turns out. I feel for his mother and the rest of his family, as I do for the family of the man (men?) that he allegedly murdered or had a hand in killing.
