It just seems to go from bad to worse in the Aaron Hernandez case. Yesterday Aaron was arrested for the murder of Odin Lloyd. Now reports are coming out of Boston that Hernandez could be a suspect in a double murder case that happened last year.
FOX 25, the Boston affiliate for FOX is reporting that Hernandez might be involved in a double homicide case back that happened in July of last year. The news station says, “Officers responded to the intersection of Shawmut Avenue and Herald Street just after 2 a.m. When they arrived, they found three people had been shot, two fatally, as they sat in a car at a traffic light.”
Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu were the victims of that shooting in July. Police took reports from a witness stating that there was a “gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island plates opened fire on it. The surviving victim was in the back seat.”
That case might be connected with the Lloyd case. The Boston Globe spoke with investigators that now say Lloyd might have had information about Aaron’s involvement in the double murder, which was the reason behind his death.
An investigator told The Boston Globe that, “the motive might have been that the victim knew (Hernandez) might have been involved.”
Just as what happened last week where more and more stories and evidence came out to damage Hernandez’s credibility, the same thing is happening this week.
In regards to the Lloyd murder case there was another arrest. The Associate Press reveals that a Connecticut man was arrested. 27-year-old Carlos Ortiz has been charged as a fugitive from justice. New Britain State’s Attorney Brian Preleski told the AP that Ortiz was arrested in Hernandez’s hometown of Bristol, Connecticut.
The Associated Press spoke with Preleski who said that the “arrest came as prosecutors and Bristol police were helping Massachusetts authorities in the investigation of the shooting death” of Lloyd.
Hernandez is scheduled for a bail hearing later today. Bristol County Sheriff Tom Hodgson let the media know that the former Patriots tight end will receive no special treatment.
Hodgson also told the media that Hernandez will have both a mental and physical evaluation. He also said that Aaron will be wearing a green jumpsuit, which means that he has not been convicted of any crime. Hernandez will only be alone in a cell if he fails the medical evaluation. If he passes the test he will have a cell mate just another way to prove the former NFL player will not get special treatment.
In the end it seems that all of the skeletons in Aaron’s closet will come out by the time this trial is over.
