One week ago tonight, 27-year-old Odin Lloyd was murdered. His body was found a day later in a North Attleboro industrial park.
Since then, police have moved quickly and aggressively to investigate, conducting multiple searches and reportedly having in their back pockets a warrant for the arrest of Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez on charges of obstructing justice.
The uncle of Odin Lloyd is satisfied, so far, with the pace of the probe.
“We think the investigation is moving quickly enough, especially being that he’s from Dorchester,” Odin’s uncle Ed tells FOX 25. (Lloyd’s uncle has not disclosed his last name.)
“Still a dream for me,” Lloyd’s uncle said regarding his nephew’s death. “It’s unreal.”
Every murder investigation merits an efficient and zealous effort, but the truth is that some get more than others. Lloyd’s case, given the involvement of Hernandez, seems to be getting extra attention from police.
Or maybe it’s just getting extra attention from the media. Or maybe it’s getting extra attention from the police because the media is paying extra attention.
And I just gave myself a headache. Again.
