Report: Odin Lloyd was shot multiple times

AP

We’ve noticed over the past few days an interesting theory regarding the death of Odin Lloyd.  Some have speculated about a Jayson Williams-type situation, with Lloyd accidentally shot at the home of Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.  Then, instead of owning up to the incident, those involved opted to try to cover it all up.

But there’s a significant difference.  As the Boston Globe reported on Thursday night, Lloyd was shot not just once — and the shooting didn’t occur in Hernandez’s home.

“He was killed where they found the body,” an unnamed law enforcement official told the Globe.  “He was shot multiple times.”

Also, FOX 25 reported that Hernandez’s neighbors heard “gunshots” between 3:00 and 3:30 a.m. on Monday.  Not one shot, but multiple shots.  (As a practical matter, the sound of a single gunshot may wake someone up, but it won’t necessarily register with the witness as the sound of a gun.  Multiple shots give the witness a better chance to realize what is being heard.)

The competing reports from the Globe and FOX 25 raise a good question regarding the ability of Hernandez’s neighbors to hear the gunshots, if they were fired not at Hernandez’s house but at the industrial park where Lloyd’s body was found.  An overhead image of the area shows that, as the crow flies (or any other type of bird or winged mammal), what would appear to be the rear of the industrial park isn’t far from Hernandez’s house, which is on the other side of a fairly thin slice of woods.

So the sound would have a chance to travel from the industrial park to the neighborhood, especially if (as it appears) this is an area that doesn’t generate much noise at 3:00 a.m. on a Monday.

  1. Depending on the area, and how often there is gunfire somewhere in the vicinity, people also get used to identifying that sound as gunfire. In some places people may think of firecrackers or something like that, but in some places people conclude its gunfire.

  2. Nieghbors are obviously trying to get some publicity… Not saying Hernandez is innocent by any means but come on man…

  3. I don’t know why they don’t use silencers anymore. Kids these days just don’t know how to commit murder …

  4. Real nice neighborhood. That satellite overhead shot, the industrial park is really close to the home. Curious how many other Patriot players live nearby.

  5. What’s especially sad about this case is all the attention is on Hernandez, who at the very least was an accomplice to the murder.

    No one is talking about Odin Lloyd, who was murdered here. Instead of people feeling sorry for a jagoff like Hernandez who screwed up his own life, people should be feeling bad for Odin Lloyd and his family.

    Condolences to the family on their tragic loss of a loved one. Not a lot is published about Lloyd yet, but from what has been out there, he sounds like a pretty normal guy who wasn’t anything like the gangbangers he was hanging out with. I feel bad for him, I could care less about Hernandez.

  6. So why hasn’t anyone gotten a statement from the cleaning crew that was hired? What the hell did they clean up!?

  7. Each guy puts 1 or 2 slugs in him in the same vicinity of his body, at the same time, and it can’t be proved who fired the fatal shot.

    —————————————————-So what makes you think they have not received a statement from the cleaning crew? Trust me….They have hundreds of statements from hundreds of people. All the police are doing now is tying up all of the loose ends. They are getting cell phone records, reviewing neighbors and local businesses’ security tapes etc. It is only a matter of time at this point before the hammer drops.

  9. Not looking for thumbs up or thumbs down on my prior post. Just surmising the reason for multiple shots being fired.

  10. As for the housecleaning. Several questions need to be answered.

    Was it a regularly scheduled cleaning? It’s plausible Hernandaz has his house cleaned on a regular basis. Once a week? Once every other week? Once a month?

    If this was a regularly scheduled cleaning:

    Was this cleaning different than prior cleanings? If so, how was it different?

    What did the cleaners notice while they were cleaning?

  11. Did Hernandaz destroy his surveillance equipment and cell phone? Or did one of his cohorts?

    Questions need to be answered before law enforcement sets the wheels of justice in motion. Especially when somebody has the money to afford the best defense lawyer money can buy.

    I agree but don’t see much sympathy being shown for Hernandez. As a Pats fan i am patiently waiting for them to cut him. He’s clearly a piece of trash. I just hope the organization comes to their senses, and soon.

  13. Probably because ray Lewis never killed anyone and there was no evidence or witness saying he did

  14. Sounds to me like this is a witch-hunt at the public’s expense. If he was ANYWAY guilty of a crime he woulda been in custody long ago. This case has high scrutiny so best believe they’re itching for something to tie-in Aaron. BSP is making a total fool of themselves and causing a spectacle. Nothing or no-one firm has even put Aaron anywhere near this poor fellas demise. O’yeah, maybe it was the gunshots from the handgun heard a mile away. GTF outta here. Not possible@ Pure comedy!

  15. O and for someone to be guilty of obstruction, there has to be proof that he got rid of CONFIRMED evidence (such as someone testifying that the murder was on the damaged DVR or the plot of the murder was on the smashed cellphone. By any means, according to you guys he’s tried, convicted, and jailed in the court of public opinion .
