Is Aaron Hernandez A Stone Cold Killer?
We all know that Aaron Hernandez has now been charged with the murder of his friend and semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, whose body was found not too far from Hernandez’s house.
However, it turns out that Hernandez is now being investigated for his possible involvement in the murders of two men in downtown Boston last year. The two men were sitting in a vehicle at the time when assailants opened fire on them.
Further, Hernandez has also been sued by a man who alleges he was shot in the face by Hernandez while at a nightclub.
In the first case, there’s a great deal of surveillance camera footage as well as phone records and whatnot which seem to quite convincingly and unequivocally place Hernandez at the same place as Lloyd and arriving home just a few minutes after Lloyd’s last text message to his sister in the wee hours of what would be his last morning.
Some say this is all ‘circumstantial evidence’ as if this is an adequate defense. However, circumstantial evidence happens to be enough to convict, as long as a jury is convinced.
In the second and third cases, less details have been brought to light as of right now, but if there is any proof of these allegations, they might make Aaron Hernandez the most lethal NFL player (off the field) that we’ve ever seen.
How could a man with so much to lose be so violent and seemingly impulsive? Was he initiating violence in all of these cases, or was he simply paranoid (sort of like Oscar Pistorius) of others?
Some are speculating that Lloyd’s knowledge of Hernandez’s involvement in the 2012 murders may have been what led to his own demise.
If and when his case goes to trial, will he use the NFL as an excuse? (e.g. “I was never like this, then I suffered a concussion or some other type of mental illness/injury which changed my very nature!”)
Finally, is it the mere allegation itself or some facts that the Patriots organization was aware of which caused them to completely drop him from the team about the same time that the story came out?
Aaron Hernandez’s bail request has been denied and he will sit in jail as the legal saga and imminent unraveling, it seems, of his life continues.
