Ortiz admits possessing gun in North Attleboro on June 17

Ortiz

The fog of mystery surrounding the involvement, if any, of Carlos Ortiz in the events surrounding the death of Odin Lloyd gradually is lifting.

According to FOX 25 in Boston, Ortiz has admitted to possessing a firearm in North Attleboro, Massachusetts on June 17, 2013.  While Ortiz apparently has not admitted to using that gun to shoot Lloyd, it’s possible that Ortiz has identified the person or persons who did.

Ortiz, per the report, was arrested at the Bristol, Connecticut home of Hernandez’s uncle, a location authorities recently searched.

With bail set at $1.5 million for Ortiz, there’s a chance that prosecutors believe he did something far worse than allegedly possessing a gun in the town where Lloyd was killed on the morning of the shooting.

    I guess the uncle was hiding him. This story gets stranger by the minute.

  2. trollingforjustice says: Jun 27, 2013 7:52 PM

    Of all places to go hide out! You were with Hernandez that night, so you choose to take refuge in a relatives home of the suspected killer? If you are that stupid.. then you need to start singing like a canary because you won’t last 3 weeks in prison

    Carlos takes a mugshot not even his mother will defend.

    Looks like a nice guy.

  5. giantsfan2104 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:59 PM

    I didn’t know the media had identified this guy.

    I glimpsed the headline and thought “How did David Ortiz get dragged into this?”?

  6. apkyletexas says: Jun 27, 2013 8:01 PM

    That does NOT look like a happy guy.

  7. mkos4513 says: Jun 27, 2013 8:04 PM

    So, AH’s uncle was hiding him!?! Between his “associates” and his family, Hernandez really surrounded himself with people of low character.

  8. kacapaco says: Jun 27, 2013 8:04 PM

    I hope Ortiz doesn’t take the blame of murder in exchange for money.

  9. vaughnjoe says: Jun 27, 2013 8:05 PM

    OK look at Hernandez’ buddies… geez… you have to be kidding me. This lines up with Justin Beiber

  10. hor2012 says: Jun 27, 2013 8:05 PM

    This is really sad.

  11. bigbluedeadhead says: Jun 27, 2013 8:06 PM

    What was he arrested for?

    Charge has been upgraded from “Murder One” to “Murder Several”.

  14. silvernblak says: Jun 27, 2013 8:08 PM

    A.H. looks like he is keeping his moith shut, but for a guy who had a NFL career w/ millions, a home, fiance and a new baby? Let me tell you who should be singing like a canarie? I know people who would kill for what A.H. has! What an idiot!

    if “bob” kraft just handed me 16 mil or whatever it was, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be hangin’ with “david ortiz” anymore. After seeing this I can’t tell if AH is more of a lowlife or just an idiot.

  17. thesteelers says: Jun 27, 2013 8:14 PM

    This needs its own TV show.

  18. srg608 says: Jun 27, 2013 8:16 PM

    Whoa, Ortiz is the guy who killed Patrick Swayze in the movie Ghost. Last I saw him, the demons were carrying him to hell, how did he get away!?!?

  19. justintuckrule says: Jun 27, 2013 8:19 PM

    Best story to hit football in 20 years.

  20. harrisonhits2 says: Jun 27, 2013 8:20 PM

    Hernandez never shook off the people he grew up with even though they were poison to his future.

    Perhaps if he’d been drafted by a west coast team instead of one of the ones close to where he grew up this would never have happened. These scumbags couldn’t have just driven off to San Diego, Oakland or Frisco the way they did to Attleboro.

  21. imnga says: Jun 27, 2013 8:24 PM

    @vaughnjoe – Yea, lets just go ahead and preemptively arrest Justin Beiber.

  22. malibu67 says: Jun 27, 2013 8:26 PM

    For some weird, unexplainable reason, I find the story sad, and yet riveting … just like the OJ drama back in the day

  23. thegreatgabbert says: Jun 27, 2013 8:28 PM

    Carlos admitting to having the gun, but said he left the bullets with Odin.

  24. 25cuts says: Jun 27, 2013 8:28 PM

    So u admit having a gun?? Did u shoot anyone?

  25. phillyphan975 says: Jun 27, 2013 8:29 PM

    Imagine the patriots players that played with him for a the past few seasons…imagine of he dropped a pass and Tom Brady would have “disrespected” him? This is only true because god (teabow) and Satan (AH) can not coexist on the same team

  26. rg3enoughsaid says: Jun 27, 2013 8:30 PM

    Judging by the picture, this guy has lost a lot of sleep over this

  27. mrtampa says: Jun 27, 2013 8:30 PM

    Now I see why the Patriots brought in all these extra tight ends the last year or so….must have seen what a douche this guy is.

  28. GenXJay says: Jun 27, 2013 8:34 PM

    Either way, Hernandez is washed up. He lost his reputation for the rest of his youthful NFL career if he were to somehow get out of this today.

  29. saveusterrelldavis says: Jun 27, 2013 8:38 PM

    Dude looks like the “hide yo kids, hide yo wives” guy

  30. juliusanonymous says: Jun 27, 2013 8:41 PM

    The fact he is “admitting” to a gun charge, means he’s made a plea deal with the prosecutor in exchange for testimony. Now you have your eye witness and the reason for all the breakthroughs.

    Otherwise, there is zero chance the prosecutor only hits the guy with a gun charge. Whaddya wanna bet he testifies against Hernandez, gets a slap on the wrist for the gun charge, and we never hear from this guy again?

  31. randomcommenter says: Jun 27, 2013 8:43 PM

    Maybe one of his buddies will take the blame and the media will decide to give Hernandez a free pass on this like ray Lewis.

  32. citiciti says: Jun 27, 2013 8:43 PM

    What you gonna do when the come for you.

  33. jayniner says: Jun 27, 2013 8:49 PM

    We should accept the real possibility that maybe Hernandez didn’t pull the trigger, that Ortiz did…..and Hernandez’s charges could be lessened.

    If a movie is made, Quentin Tarantino should without a doubt direct it.

  34. chawkup says: Jun 27, 2013 8:49 PM

    Why in the hell would he possibly admit to having a gun on that day?!?!????

    Geezus, let’s count the ways that these clowns were horrible criminals.

    Let’s see … they leave a piece of used chewing gum next to a spent shell casing that was used in a murder in their rental car…. They toss the .22 from the car despite the fact that it can be traced to AH… He plans the murder but then leaves his surveillance system on until he walks into his house, 2 MINUTES AFTER THE MURDER, and while still carrying his gun, ON CAMERA … He uses the same murder weapon that he has posed for in photos that he knows are on the Internet … He premeditates a murder but then allows his victim to send text messages that basically say, “I’m about to get murdered,” two minutes before the murder takes place …

    Looks like the product of the wonderful public education system of Democratically controlled state of CT. Doesn’t matter if the kid could read or write, just keep pushing up to the next grade until he gets out.

    Look at him now, his mother must be so proud.

    The rest of his youthful NFL career? How about the rest of his life. His NFL career was a non-starter with the NE patriots having played a season with a killer on their roster. This stench will cover over over his daughter who will probably need to change here name. When I think of Woody Harrelson, I also think of his killer dad too. I can’t help it especially with Woody’s defense of his dad.

  40. jaxbeachjagfan says: Jun 27, 2013 9:08 PM

    My theory: A .22 handgun was found near crime scene and about 1/4 mile from Hernandez home.

    .22 ammo found in residence but no matching gun.

    Only .45 wounds found on Lloyd (I’ve read).

    Ortiz held the gun, but never actually fired at (or maybe just missed) Lloyd. Hernandez and The Other Guy did, about five times.

    Ortiz pitches the .22 out the window off their car when leaving or took a walk and tossed it. Likely took the .45s with him on his way to Uncle’s.

    Just a theory. Plead to a possession charge and testify against the other two.

    If Aaron Hernandez were on fire, I wouldn’t wring my the swass from my gym shorts to help put him out. Put this guy away, and put him away for a LONG time.

  43. maxkingpin says: Jun 27, 2013 9:15 PM

    Aaron Hernandez’ mom thinks his uncle did nothing wrong.

  44. mrgroovesd says: Jun 27, 2013 9:16 PM

    It takes a real lowlife to attempt to advance some sort of political agenda based on these circumstances. Well done!

  48. TheWizard says: Jun 27, 2013 9:25 PM

    It’s unfortunate that a potential NFL serial murderer story has produced the most hilarious thread of posts I’ve ever read on this site.

  49. dougfunlove says: Jun 27, 2013 9:30 PM

    @justintuckrule Murder of an innocent person is the best football story in 20 years?!

    We all know this is a real life occurrence of people being killed, right?

    The problem with this…..Hernandez will be dead broke. If, of course, they find him guilty.

  53. securb2013 says: Jun 27, 2013 9:42 PM

    Even if Hernandez walks his days in the NFL are over.

  54. beerbudsnbevo says: Jun 27, 2013 9:51 PM

    I have really wanted to get out and ride the bike, lift some weights and get back into shape for the summer fun…

    Well thanks to this Hernandez story, I haven’t left the recliner and lap top in a week…

    Thanks for ruining my life also, Hernandez…

  57. pgilbert15303 says: Jun 27, 2013 10:00 PM

    If Ortiz takes the rap, whom do we think will pick up A.H? The Raiders? Hmmm, Davis is gone… Baltimore? They could use a new Reverend. Rev A.H. Miami? Or our the Jets?

  58. blackngold4life says: Jun 27, 2013 10:02 PM

    Odin never should have went with Hernandez .. Anybody with any street smarts knows that’s a setup! 230am..LAPD tole me nobody’s on the streets after 3 except killers and drug dealers. Bad decision..but those text msgs he sent were very smart

    Suprised no “Snitch” comment yet. Hope they all do lots of time.

  67. orivar says: Jun 28, 2013 1:24 AM

    It’s looking more like we’re finding our guilty suspects. There’s something that isn’t matching up with Ortiz and Bo Fish is considered armed and dangerous.

    This is getting interesting and Hernandez is an idiot for hanging out with these people and he may of not been the shooter from the looks of it.

  68. orndorf2 says: Jun 28, 2013 2:29 AM

    I believe I read this guy was on parole….wasn’t supposed to leave the state and wasn’t supposed to have a firearm….so he violated parole….they arrest him….let him know they got his @zz on surveillance video with a gun. He admits ..yeah I had a gun ”

    Now, what do you know about that night because We are giving deals to the 1st canary!!

  69. bryans49ers says: Jun 28, 2013 3:05 AM

    He’s the informant in this case. Look at the scared look on his face. Probably looks a lot like Odin Lloyd’s face did when he was in the car texting his wife of what he knew would be his fate. Justice is coming to you and your family Mr. Lloyd and its like a freight train with no breaks. RIP Brother

  70. officialgame says: Jun 28, 2013 7:11 AM

  74. ravensfaninflorida says: Jun 28, 2013 9:42 AM

    Just curious but wouldn’t the uncle be in some kind of trouble if he knew that law enforcement was looking for this man and he was at his house? If he was it sounds like stupid runs in the family !!

    __________________________________

    I think if Ortiz pulled the trigger he would not only get obstruction (I believe federal max is 5 years) but he will at least also get accessory to murder…If this is the case his penalty could/should be equivalent to that of the actual murderer.

    Change “best” to “most interesting”. There. Feel better Nancy?

    Next, you do know that the people who were killed weren’t on their way to volunteering at the senior center, right? We’re talking about drug murders. Dudes selling dangerous substances to kids to wreck their lives. There were 50,000 of them in Mexico last week. Did you hold a candlelight vigil for each one mr. holier than art thou? Lighten up.
