Football PhOtOs-NFL Star Guilty of Murder-Faces NEW Murder Trial

Former New England Patriots Star Aaron Hernandez Found Guilty of First-Degree Murder Following Shooting in 2013

  • Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez found guilty for murder of Odin Lloyd
  • The conviction carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole
  • Athlete once had a $40million contract and a standout career ahead of him
  • The former American football pro was also found guilty on firearm and ammunition charges
Daily Mail UK, 17 April 2015


Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez was found guilty on Wednesday of first-degree murder in a deadly late-night shooting, sealing the downfall of an athlete who once had a $40million contract and a standout career ahead of him.



Hernandez, 25, looked to his right and pursed his lips after the jury forewoman read the verdict. The first-degree murder conviction carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole in the slaying of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old landscaper and amateur weekend football player who was dating the sister of Hernandezís fiancee.

Hernandezís mother, Terri, and his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, cried and gasped when they heard the verdict. Shayanna Jenkins wept on his motherís shoulder. Hernandez later mouthed to them: 'Be strong. Be strong.'

For reasons that were never made clear to the jury, Lloyd was shot six times in the middle of the night on June 17, 2013, in a deserted industrial park near Hernandezís home.

Police almost immediately zeroed in on Hernandez because they found in Lloydís pocket the key to a car the NFL player had rented.

Within hours of Hernandezís arrest, the Patriots cut the former Pro Bowl athlete, who was considered one of the top tight ends in the game.


Prosecutors presented a wealth of evidence that Hernandez was with Lloyd at the time he was killed, including home security video from Hernandezís mansion, witness testimony and cellphone records that tracked Lloydís movements.

Hernandezís lawyer, James Sultan, acknowledged for the first time during closing arguments that Hernandez was there when Lloyd was killed.

But the attorney pinned the shooting on two of Hernandezís friends, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, saying his client was a '23-year-old kid' who witnessed a shocking crime and didnít know what to do. Wallace and Ortiz will stand trial later.

Prosecutors have suggested Lloyd may have been killed because he knew too much about Hernandezís alleged involvement in a deadly 2012 drive-by shooting in Boston. But they were not allowed to tell the jury that because the judge said it was speculation.



As a result, they never offered a motive beyond saying Hernandez appeared angry with Lloyd at a nightclub two nights before the killing.

Hernandez faces further legal trouble: He is awaiting trial on murder charges in the drive-by shooting. He is accused of gunning down two men over a spilled drink at a nightclub.



In the Lloyd killing, the defense argued that investigators fixated on Hernandez because of his celebrity and conducted a shoddy investigation in their zeal to confirm their suspicions.

Prosecutors said Hernandez organized the killing, summoned his two friends to help carry it out, and drove Lloyd and the others to the secluded spot in the industrial park. During closing arguments, prosecutors also accused Hernandez of pulling the trigger, though under the law it was not necessary to prove who fired the shots to convict him.

Security video from inside Hernandezís home showed him holding what appeared to be a gun less than 10 minutes after Lloyd was killed. The surveillance system also captured Hernandez, Wallace and Ortiz relaxing at his home hours after Lloyd was shot, hanging out in the basement ďman cave,Ē lounging by the pool and cuddling Hernandezís baby daughter.

Hernandez was an All-American out of the University of Florida who was drafted by the Patriots in the fourth round in 2010.

THE KEY MOMENTS IN THE MURDER TRIAL OF AARON HERNANDEZ

THE EVIDENCE

Prosecutors produced neither a murder weapon nor a witness to Lloyd's shooting in a North Attleborough industrial park. Their case hinged on other elements: cellphone records showing Hernandez and two friends communicating with Lloyd around the time of the slaying; Lloyd's phone pinging cell towers between Boston and North Attleborough; surveillance video at Hernandez's home showing him holding a black item that appeared to be a gun minutes after workers at the industrial park heard gunshots; a joint found near Lloyd's body with Hernandez's and Lloyd's DNA on it.

THE DEFENSE

During closing arguments, Hernandez lawyer James Sultan for the first time acknowledged what evidence pointed to: Hernandez was there when Lloyd was killed. But he described Hernandez as a witness, a 23-year-old kid who didn't know what to do after seeing a shocking crime. Sultan pinned it on Hernandez's two co-defendants, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, both of whom have pleaded not guilty and will be tried later.

JURY'S ROAD TRIP

Midway through the trial, jurors boarded a bus to tour key spots in the case, including Hernandez's home, the street where the victim lived and the spot where his body was found. State police stood guard as the jury inspected the street in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood where Lloyd lived with his mother and sisters. Jurors also trekked out in the cold to the snow-covered gravel lot where Lloyd's bullet-ridden body was found and toured Hernandez's mansion a mile from the crime scene.

TEARS FOR A SON

Lloyd's mother, Ursula Ward, wept quietly at times during the trial. Overcome with emotion, she would sometimes leave the courtroom in tears when jurors were shown graphic photos of her 27-year-old son's body. Before Ward testified, Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh ordered her not to cry on the stand. Ward remained stoic. When photos of Lloyd's body in the morgue were shown, she mouthed the words, 'My baby, my baby.'

HERNANDEZ'S FIANCEE

Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, was compelled to testify after she was granted immunity from prosecution. Wearing her large diamond engagement ring, Jenkins testified that Hernandez had told her in the days following the shooting that he was not involved. Jenkins testified she removed a box from their basement at his request the day after the slaying but never looked inside before she dumped it in a random trash bin. Prosecutors said the box may have held evidence including the murder weapon. Jenkins, who has a 2-year-old daughter with Hernandez, avoided looking at him during her testimony.

THE SISTERS

Jenkins and her younger sister, Shaneah, both attended the trial at times but sat on opposite sides of the courtroom. Shayanna sat behind Hernandez and could be seen joking with him, several times exchanging whispered 'I love yous' when she attended. Shaneah would sit with Lloyd's family. Before he was killed, she and Lloyd had made plans to move in together while she attended law school in Boston. Both sisters testified while the other sat in the audience, watching and sometimes seeming annoyed.

THE VERDICT

After Wednesday's verdict was read, Jenkins and Hernandez's mother clutched each other and cried. Hernandez mouthed to them the words, 'Be strong. Be strong.' The verdict came early on the seventh day of jury deliberations.

He was automatically sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Aaron Hernandez Indicted in 2012 Boston Double Murder


(OLD REPORT)



Aaron Hernandez AP


15 May, 2014

BOSTON-

- Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was indicted Thursday in a double murder that took place nearly two years ago.

Daniel de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28, both of Dorchester, Mass., were gunned down July 16, 2012 as they sat at a traffic light in Boston's South End shortly after leaving Cure Lounge with three friends. A silver SUV with Rhode Island plates was reportedly seen speeding away from the drive-by shooting.

Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said Thursday that a grand jury voted to indict Hernandez on two counts of first-degree murder. He was also indicted on charges of armed assault with intent to murder and assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon.

Conley said Abreu and Furtado were "ambushed and executed as they drove home" in the early hours of July 16, 2012. He said three other men were in the car with Abreu and Furtado at the time of the shooting. One was struck, but not killed, and the other two escaped physical injury.

During a news conference Thursday, Conley walked reporters through a sequence of events that he says took place on the night Abreu and Furtado were killed.

He said Abreu and Furtado arrived at Cure Lounge, by coincidence, at the same time Hernandez and another individual were entering. Conley said there is no evidence that Hernandez knew the victims before that night.

"This chance encounter triggered a series of events that culminated in these murders," the District Attorney said.

When the victims later left the lounge in their car, Conley said, Hernandez, unbeknownst to the victims, followed them in his SUV.

When the victims' car stopped at a red light, Hernandez's SUV pulled up beside them and that is when Hernandez fired a .38-calibur revolver multiple times from the drivers' side of his vehicle into the passenger side of the victims' vehicle, Conley continued.

"For us, this case was never about Aaron Hernandez. For us, it was about two victims who were stopped, ambushed and senselessly murdered on the streets of the city they called home," Conley said.

A silver SUV reportedly matching the description of the car Boston police were seeking in connection with the double-homicide, was towed from Hernandez's uncle's home in Bristol, Conn., at the request of police on June 28, 2013.

Conley said Thursday that the weapon used in the shootings was recovered last June from a woman with ties to Hernandez.

Hernandez's attorneys, Charles Rankin and James Sultan, issued a joint statement following news of the indictment saying,

"It is one thing to make allegations at a press conference, and another thing to prove them in a courtroom. Unlike the District Attorney, we are not going to try this case in the media. Under our system of justice, Aaron Hernandez is innocent of these charges and he looks forward to his day in court."

Also Thursday, the grand jury also returned an indictment against Tanya Singleton, Hernandez's cousin, for criminal contempt of court, stemming from her refusal to testify before the grand jury investigating the double murders.

This January, the Hartford Courant reported that a search warrant indicated that surveillance video from the night of the July 2012 killings shows Hernandez in an SUV believed to be involved in the double murder.

The warrant did not suggest a motive for the killings and did not indicate whether there was evidence that Hernandez was the man who pulled the trigger, according to the paper.

It did, however, say surveillance footage showed Hernandez and Alexander Bradley at the same nightclub in Boston as Furtado and Abreu the night of their killings, according to the paper. Bradley has a civil lawsuit pending against Hernandez, alleging Hernandez shot him in the face after they argued outside a Miami nightclub in early 2013.

Bradley was jailed last fall after he allegedly avoided authorities who tried to subpoena him to appear before a grand jury probing the 2012 double homicide.

The search warrant obtained by the Courant sought to access recordings of phone calls Bradley made from prison after a Department of Corrections official told authorities that Bradley was heard discussing details of the Boston double homicide investigation on those calls.

Authorities only began tying Hernandez to the double homicide investigation after he was charged in Odin Lloyd's murder. The warrant reportedly indicated that authorities received a phone call on June 22, 2013 that led them to investigate the former NFL star in connection with the 2012 case.

The call is said to have come from an employee of Rumor nightclub in Boston, a club that Hernandez and Lloyd reportedly visited two days before Lloyd's death and the location at which prosecutors say the two men had a disagreement that eventually led to Lloyd's shooting, the paper reported.

The caller claimed to have overheard a conversation that indicated Lloyd's death and the Boston double homicide were related, the warrant reportedly indicated.

D.A. Conley said Thursday that Hernandez will now be tried for the double homicide, as the first trial in Bristol County for the murder of Odin Lloyd is completed.

He will now face trial in the double murder case. His arraignment on the new charges is expected to take place sometime in the future

Aaron Hernandez Reveals Full 'Bloods' Tattoo During Appearance for His Double-Murder Trial


  • Aaron Hernandez, 26, was in court for a pre-trial appearance in his upcoming double-murder case on Tuesday
  • He was wearing a T-shirt that showed off his full 'Bloods' tattoo he received in May, which says 'LIFETIME LOYALTY' and has a skull and spider web
  • Hernandez is set to go to trial next year accused of killing Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado after Abreu spilled a drink on him in 2012
  • He is already serving a lifetime sentence after being convicted of the murder of Odin Lloyd in April
Daily Mail UK, 23 December 2015


Aaron Hernandez was back in court on Tuesday for a pre-trial appearance in his upcoming double-murder case, and was photographed in a crewneck T-shirt that showed the full extent of the Bloods tattoo he received in prison earlier this year.


The tattoo says 'LIFETIME' up top, which refers to either his lifetime sentence after being found guilty of murdering Odin Lloyd or his lifetime commitment to a gang.
The five-point star below that is a sign of the Bloods gang, which has led many to believe it is indeed gang-related.

What had not been seen before were the words 'LOYALTY' which are written below 'LIFETIME'.
There is also a photo of a skull and spider web at the bottom of the tattoo.

Ink: He was wearing a T-shirt that showed of his full 'Bloods' tattoo he received in May, which says 'LIFETIME LOYALTY' and has a skull and spider web at the bottom, previously obscured



Hernandez is set to go to trial next year accused of killing Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado after Abreu spilled a drink on him at a Boston nightclub in 2012.
The men were in their car at a traffic light when they were executed with a .38 caliber revolver.

Hernandez is alleged to have said after the killings:

'I think I got one in the head and one in the chest.'
He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.





Trouble: Hernandez is set to go to trial next year accused of killing Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado after Abreu spilled a drink on him in 2012








Flashbacks: Hernandez had a bare neck in April 2015 during his murder trial, left, but the tattoo was visible under his suit collars after his guilty verdict. He is seen in October 2015


The 26 year old got in trouble earlier this month as well when he was caught with a shank inside his cell at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.


The former New England Patriots tight end, who appeared in the 2012 Super Bowl, had signed a $40million deal for five seasons shortly before he was arrested for the murder of Lloyd.
He was convicted in April for that murder and the next month received his tattoo.

Getting a tattoo is illegal in prison but it is not clear how, or if, he was punished for the infraction.
