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.
