A second man is being held in connection with Odin Lloyd murder case

Hernandez Reuters

One of the other two men allegedly with Aaron Hernandez and Odin Lloyd at the time of Lloyd’s death possibly is in police custody.

According to the Boston Globe, 27-year-old Carlos Ortiz is being held at the Hartford Correctional Center “in connection to the [Lloyd] case.”  Bail has been set for Ortiz at $1.5 million.  The records in Ortiz’s case have been sealed, according to Nick Underhill of MassLive.com.

According to the Hartford Courant, Ortiz has waived extradition to Massachusetts.  He was due in court Wednesday on a charge of violating probation, and he has a record of convictions for larceny and criminal mischief.

Evidence summarized by prosecutor Bill McCauley at the Wednesday arraignment of Aaron Hernandez strongly suggests that someone in the car other than Hernandez and Lloyd informed police that Hernandez spoke to Lloyd of being upset with something Lloyd had said to others about Hernandez two nights earlier, and that Hernandez believed he couldn’t “trust” the victim.

This implies that one or both of the other two men in the car already have cooperated with police.

    God spoke to me last night and told me Ortiz was the trigger man. Go get him Boston.

    Not for or against anyone, never met any of the people involved. Just rooting for true justice.

    The best thing that will come from all this is the intense media scrutiny the Patriots franchise especially under the Belichick regime will be getting. Not just from the football/sports world but the Main Stream Media. They will start digging into any other “issues” the team has had and we know what that means. All those millions around the world that watch the Super Bowl but really couldn’t care less about football that have never even heard of Spygate will now start getting the truth. Soon everyone will be made aware of the true “Patriot Way” and it will be blissful. Everyone around the World, not just football fans will know they cheated their way to three Lombardi’s! I can see it on 60 Miniutes etc. now.

    Walt Coleman is busy under the Hood, working on the defense of the Patriots.

  13. brian55906 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:24 AM

    Hernandez said that he “couldn’t trust” the victim…. so he killed him (allegedly).

    That makes me wonder if Hernandez has committed other SERIOUS crimes before, and needed to silence this guy because he had the goods on him……. why else would you kill someone in this situation????

  14. swagger52 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:26 AM

    Wouldn’t it be great to see Walt Coleman as the defense lawyer for Hernandez?

    I mean this is not the first time that Walt has been on their payroll to help in their defense.

  15. bryans49ers says: Jun 27, 2013 7:27 AM

    The timing of Hernandez arrest and this other dirtbag smells of a RAT. Wouldn’t surprise me if it were Hernandez howevere this tactic will fail because the prosecutor wants his head and secondly, rats have a very short life expectancy in prison. Pick your poison boys!

    Someone’s out of the circle of trust

  17. bobappraisals says: Jun 27, 2013 7:35 AM

    no gun, no visual proof he was the shooter, its the same thing as ray lewis. there was no suit so he pleaded out. itll be his homies word against his with no gun and no visual proof. he will be lucky if he serves two years max. even the car tracks found. the only thing the prosecutor can say is that it was a front wheel drive car and hernandez had a front wheel drive car with mud in the wheel well. so do i, so does that mean i killed him? this is why he has so many just gun charges as they have no chance with the murder charge. please, any dimwit attorney can convince one juror with this evidence.

  18. titknocker says: Jun 27, 2013 7:40 AM

    Enjoy your life in prison Aaron. I hope your “street cred” was worth it. Million dollar talent, but a 10 cent head…….What a f’n waste.

    Killed Lloyd because you couldn’t trust him in front of guys that obviously you can’t trust.. maybe the problem is you Aaron, you are a dirtbag and hang out with other dirtbags

    Can’t trust the guy you murdered, can’t trust your accomplices, can’t trust your overpaid lawyers to weasel you out of this…

  38. charleythedinosaur says: Jun 27, 2013 9:09 AM

    One thing about this whole case is obvious. Aaron Hernandez has never watched an episode of “The First 48″

  40. fumblenuts says: Jun 27, 2013 9:32 AM

    Ortiz has a record of convictions for larceny and criminal mischief. Doesn’t really scream trigger man, not like Hernandez for someone who has already shot a man in the face……

  41. chawkup says: Jun 27, 2013 9:33 AM

    They’re closing in on AH. And you have to know that the accomplice knows precisely where the murder weapon was ditched – they probably are the ones that ditched it.

  42. mackie66 says: Jun 27, 2013 9:34 AM

    So being upset with someone is a motive for murder? But this case seems to be gang related and wasn’t Hernandez a gang member once. Once a member always a member.

    I get that you think it’s fun to see the Patriots suffering, just like it would be fun for me to see the Jets suffer… however, how can you “absolutely love” a murder. It’s not an episode of CSI… someone actually died.

    Remember: Guilty if ONLY beyond a reasonable doubt. If one person thinks that he may be innocent, he walks

  47. siggtacular says: Jun 27, 2013 9:59 AM

    Aaron Hernandez is a Scorpio, this doesn’t surprise me. At their core scorpios can be cruel and especially violent. Scorpios don’t like their business being out out there, because they are naturally secretive people. Hernandez is an immature Scorpio, and he’ll pay for it with prison time.

  48. jimnsota says: Jun 27, 2013 9:59 AM

    I don’t understand what kind of mind set you have to kill anyone period. Especially because you cant trust them.

    My advice maybe try distancing yourself in the future from the problems.

    I’m not a pro athlete, didn’t grow up in a tuff situation like some have. But once you have “made it” what is the point to continue what everyone talks about trying to get away from.
    Doesn’t make sense…

  49. bobzilla1001 says: Jun 27, 2013 10:05 AM

    There is no way a 23-year-old kid ought to own or live in a mansion like the one I’ve seen on TV the past couple of days. This is part of the problem: These players are paid way too much money too early in life. Too young, too dumb and too damn rich.
    No wonder I can’t afford the price of a ticket anymore.

  53. 1phd says: Jun 27, 2013 10:16 AM

    The same people calling him a snitch are happy he likely gave the information that finally led to the arrest. Can’t have it both ways folks. Looks like the case has now moved beyond ‘circumstantial evidence.’

  54. tampamac says: Jun 27, 2013 10:20 AM

    Hernandez is done. While they may not have a ton of physicl evidence, the circumstantial evidence is overwhelming. Not to mention Ortiz may talk and Lloyd made virtually a dying declaration to his sister via text that he was with Hernandez. You don’t have to prove the case 100%- Just beyond a reasonable doubt, and it’s getting much harder to have a reasonable doubt Hernandez didn’t have a part in this.

  55. rayburns says: Jun 27, 2013 10:21 AM

    This is first degree murder in which the victim was apparently executed. That means it doesn’t matter whether or not Hernandez actually pulled the trigger. It is still first degree murder in the state of Massachusetts to be involved in an execution style murder.

    The only hope that Hernandez has is turning state’s evidence against the other people in the vehicle and hoping that he’ll get a reduced first degree penalty (in other words, maybe life in prison with a chance of parole in 20 years instead of no parole). With one other person apparently cooperating and remaining separate from Hernandez, the odds of this happening are getting longer and longer.

    Safe to say this AH situation will not bring back spygate, or make it into what you perceive it to be.

  60. tampamac says: Jun 27, 2013 10:33 AM

    And another thing. If you think the prosecutor laid out ALL the evidence they have at the arraignment, you’re mistaken.

  61. eagleswin says: Jun 27, 2013 10:36 AM

    From rotoworld :

    Sources tell FOX 25 Boston that investigators consider Aaron Hernandez a possible suspect in a 2012 double murder that occurred in Boston.
    On July 16 of last year, police responded to an intersection in downtown Boston. They found three men had been shot while stopped at a traffic light — two of them fatally. The deceased were identified as Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu, and they had reportedly just left a bar. Witnesses said a gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island plates opened fire and then fled. The investigation is ongoing. Meanwhile, Hernandez was charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd on Wednesday and is facing a civil suit for shooting a man in the face in Florida in February.

  62. pmtlps says: Jun 27, 2013 10:37 AM

    Hernandez & Odin Lloyd were lovers he killed him because Lloyd started telling people of their down low relationship.

    ______________________

    Its the gang / jailhouse mentality where respect matters more than your own freedom. The victim here said things about Hernandez that he didn’t like, to people he didn’t like. Ie; he totally disrespected Hernandez.

    That’s why people like this end up in jail and should be kept there. They aren’t able to differentiate between things that you should at most punch someone in the mouth for doing or just cut them off and have nothing to do with them in the future. Instead they kill them or beat them within an inch of their life all over so called “respect”.
