Report: Impounded SUV was rented to Hernandez

Hernandez AP

It’s generally a bad sign for a pro athlete (or, really, anyone) when a murder case is referred to as the “other” murder case.

For Aaron Hernandez, the “other” murder case arose today, and it seems to be moving fairly quickly.

From the FOX 25 report that Hernandez is being investigated in connection with an unsolved double murder that happened in July 2012 to the Boston Globe report that Odin Lloyd may have been killed because he knew about Hernandez’s involvement in the unsolved double murder to the CNN report that police have impounded a silver SUV that is believed to have been involved in the unsolved double murder and that police believe was rented to Hernandez, Thursday was another day of non-stop, negative, troubling news for the former Patriot.

Now, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports more definitively that Hernandez indeed rented the now-impounded SUV.  However, Schefter calls it a red SUV; all prior reports indicated it was silver or gray.

The speed with which Hernandez has been attached to an 11-month-old double homicide suggests that something has happened recently to help prosecutors crack a case that was cooling off considerably.  Quite possibly, one of the two men who were with Hernandez and Odin Lloyd in the hours preceding his death has been apprehended — and has been providing information not only about the Lloyd case but also about the “other” murder case that suddenly involves Hernandez.

    So you murdered somebody because they knew you murdered someone before?

    Here’s a thought. Maybe you shouldn’t murder people?

  2. bigblue5611 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:39 PM

    How much would it suck to be him right now?

    I already can’t wait for the movie to come out

  4. thegreatgabbert says: Jun 27, 2013 7:40 PM

    Eeeh…red, silver, what’s the dif? Eyewitness reports are notoriously inaccurate in any case. Add the charges to the docket.

  5. gonzolo4 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:41 PM

    All this evidence mounting up is staggering, somewhere; Tiki Barber is flabbergasted.

    Does this make him a serial killer?

  7. raji1824 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:42 PM

    He’s in deep deep trouble.

  8. cynic2o9 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:42 PM

    With all due respect to Lloyd and his family, I have to chuckle a bit. Hernandez murders Lloyd, but the dudes he didn’t kill, who also knew about the other case, are apprehended and will probably give details to the murder Lloyd was killed for in the first place. The irony.

  9. kacapaco says: Jun 27, 2013 7:43 PM

    with every passing day, AH looking more of a Mexican drug kingpin than a TE we all adored.

  10. 25cuts says: Jun 27, 2013 7:43 PM

    At this rate….save the taxpayers money. Just throw him in jail and be done with it……………I’m kidding, everyone deserves their day in court but, DAMN!

    So far he laid a plan for law enforcement to keep track of his doings.

  14. bartlettruss says: Jun 27, 2013 7:45 PM

    Maybe he’s just going through a homicidal period…

    Good job, Belicheck.

    Way to show those other 31 GMs who wouldn’t touch this sociopath.

  20. patriotsdefense says: Jun 27, 2013 7:48 PM

    This is just absurd how dumb Aaron Hernandez is. He was a talent unlike anyone other in the NFL today and he threw it all away. And he’s only 23. It really is shocking. What a flipping idiot. He will rot in jail for the rest of his life.

  21. bengals69 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:48 PM

    I’d like to know who else on the Pats were renting cars when Aaron was on these two nights?

    Man you got to pity Tom Brady. First he loses Welker and now Hernandez. Who is he going to throw too?

  22. thegreatgabbert says: Jun 27, 2013 7:48 PM

    News of Aaron’s arrest just reached his ancestral homeland of Puerto Rico. His name is pronounced ‘Ernandez there, and no one knew who the hell they were talking about up to now.

  23. hboc01 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:49 PM

    If he is indeed guilty, I hope he’s punished for crimes and the jury doesn’t let him go because he’s an athlete. None of this happened in Florida right?

  24. rams1999 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:49 PM

    Wow. First of all, my heart goes out to families regardless of their obvious up to no goodness.
    Then for this to happen to a Patriot, hilarious cause it has Raider written all over it. Ok fellow beaners, we only have Mark Sanchez to root for.
    We all suffering!

  25. mrbigass says: Jun 27, 2013 7:49 PM

    Soooo, what’s with all the rentals. These can’t steal one to commit a crime like everyone else?

  26. mcwest1 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:50 PM

    “Quite possibly, one of the two men who were with Hernandez and Odin Lloyd in the hours preceding his death has been apprehended — and has been providing information not only about the Lloyd case but also about the “other” murder case that suddenly involves Hernandaz”

    Or maybe one of the guys Lloyd was talking to called in an anonymous tip?

  27. stlunatik says: Jun 27, 2013 7:51 PM

    For everyone who could play in the NFL but never gets a shot, this d bag made it. Living the dream and then to piss it away. He should be locked up for that alone. RIP to the victims.

  28. jack3dsd says: Jun 27, 2013 7:53 PM

    in three years he will probably be free and given comeback player of the year award and $100 million dollar contract and all that bc that’s how america works

    What a maniac, shouldn’t patriot fans be glad this guy is gone?

    ————————–

    Yes. I hope we are all glad he is gone. I held out hope that the media had the facts wrong, and he was actually an ok guy that was mixed up in something bad. However, after watching the arraignment I think he is a stone cold killer. The Patriots did the right thing to cut him, but it will be black mark on the Patriots and NFL for some time, that I am not sure they could have done much about in advance.

  30. capegolfer says: Jun 27, 2013 7:55 PM

    Aparently it wasn’t about the money with Wes, it was about life and death. He saw the writing early.

  31. logica1voicesays says: Jun 27, 2013 7:55 PM

    If Roger Goddell was the judge, Hernandez’ funeral would’ve been yesterday.

  32. tommyg2012 says: Jun 27, 2013 7:56 PM

    How can this guy even live with himself. Knowing you’ve killed 3 ppl. ????

    What’s an attorney’s job…. Does his attorney try to get his client away with murder…. Or does his attorney try and make sure his client isn’t lying ?

    I dare any human to attempt reading this entire sentence in one breath.

    What do we know about the first victims? They sounded like decent people who just got on the wrong side of this maniac.

    Apparently football IQ isn’t the same thing as regular IQ.

  42. chb74 says: Jun 27, 2013 8:11 PM

    So essentially Aaron Hernandez would spend his summers killing people and then killing the people who knew that he’d killed people? I hope football didn’t interfere too much with his primary job as a psychopathic assassin.

  43. tampamac says: Jun 27, 2013 8:12 PM

    Hernandez better thank his lucky stars this occurred in a non-death penalty state. But judging from all the dirt coming up on him, I’m sure investigators are taking another look at homicides from 2007-2010 in Gainesville. And Florida DOES execute.

  44. goodguyattorney says: Jun 27, 2013 8:12 PM

    This is sounding like a Quentin Tarrantino movie.

  45. wawa33 says: Jun 27, 2013 8:20 PM

    So he played all of last season as a murderer and acted like nothing happened? He is psychotic.

  46. doggeatdogg says: Jun 27, 2013 8:21 PM

    Aaron has now entered into the serial killer realm alright. That situation in Gainesville (UF) needs to be re-opened. Then the shooting in Boston and the one in Miami. And finally for the cherry on top, the authorities are getting the mother of all work-outs on this one. 3 murders, possibly a fourth, and attempted murder. Maybe the feds should jump in. In any event, he is lucky he didn’t kill in FLA because they do put a needle in you. There still that closed case at UF though.

  47. justintuckrule says: Jun 27, 2013 8:21 PM

    Imagine how little we’d know what’s going on (seemingly by the second in this case) if there were no such thing as cell phones and the internet.

    —————————————————————
    Ignorant much? The attorney cares solely about his winning percentage and getting paid, Gilligan. You think he’s gonna diminish his career in the name of justice? Gimme a break. If you’re naive enough to believe trials are about honesty & integrity then you should probably never comment on the subject again WADR.

    Seriously, what do you think happens, prosecutors and DAs consistently charge innocent men with murder to where it’s rare for a defense attorney to actually represent a guilty man? Cmon son, 90% of these charged guys are guilty but they still have the right to trial and there will always be a defender willing to take their money in attempt to acquit them.

  49. tfbuckfutter says: Jun 27, 2013 8:22 PM

    I don’t want to be the guy who gives advice on how to kill people but I do have a question for Aaron Hernandez….

    You know where Boston is?

    It’s NOT 1 mile from your stupid house you big dummy. See the difference between being in jail without bond and spending the last 11 months doing things like….you know….playing football and earning a giant contract?

    Even as a Patriots fan I find this whole situation fascinating. I don’t even care about the ramifications on my team.

    The rental car he just had they found a shell casing in. Now they link another rental car to a double murder from a year ago. I am beginning to see a pattern here…

  59. gjm2470 says: Jun 27, 2013 8:38 PM

    What a punk. You know what is troubling is that he may have actually been involved with other murders and played in this past season! Its crazy to think that someone can have a career that can provide him with more money and a lifestyle that most of us can only dream of, only to throw it away. Prayers to the Lloyd family.

  60. itsfootballfolks says: Jun 27, 2013 8:43 PM

    Like most Pats fans, I would cringe with each new embarrassing Gronk episode to hit the headlines, wondering when he’d grow up.

    “When Mr. Hernandez was linked last week to the killing of Odin Lloyd, the Boston police decided to take another look at his possible role in last year’s killings that took place after a fight in a Boston nightclub.”

    “Further investigation led the police to tie Hernandez to that killing, said the official. He said that Hernandez was believed to have fired the shots that killed the two men, Daniel Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28.”

    “The fight inside the club took place between Mr. Abreu and Mr. Furtado and a group of men that the police have now been told included Mr. Hernandez.”

  65. bralinshan says: Jun 27, 2013 9:12 PM

    In the last week, we’ve all learned the following:

    1. AH shot some guy in the face by accident and shot out his eye. Accidents like this happen all the time.

    2. AH likely shot a man in the woods by his home….execution style…5 times.

    3. The man who he executed in the woods was possibly going to tell the authorities that AH gunned down and murdered two other people in a car…and seriously wounded a third man.

    That’s quite a “less than 1 year” period. I’m not believing that this guy played a few years in the NFL…and then decided to start killing people.

    He’s likely cut his teeth a long time ago.

  66. maxkingpin says: Jun 27, 2013 9:13 PM

    When he answered the door and heard the charges, he had the look of come on guys you are kidding right?

    He in his own head is shocked at the way he is being treated, he does not get it. He is a sociopath, and a lot of people just lost their meal ticket …… Which means more murders to come.

  79. jeremy7182012 says: Jun 27, 2013 9:54 PM

  80. briang123 says: Jun 27, 2013 9:59 PM

    Hernandez grew up under Bush, who destroyed the lives of millions of women, children, minorities, and gays. In order to make his cronies rich. Bush started two illegal wars that taught minority youth like Hernandez that violence was perfectly acceptable, especially if it rid the world of another useless minority. Instead of automatically blaming him because he is a minority, we should look at the root cause, which beings with what the criminal Bush brought upon America’s minorities.

  81. duffelbagsports says: Jun 27, 2013 10:00 PM

    First he deserves his day in court not the court of public opinion. We know how reliably accurate media reports are. If we believed them there would be 15 people convicted for the marathon bombing.

    That being said even though it doesn’t look good he only needs one juror. Given the groupies in Hernandez shirts outside the courtroom today chanting innocent I think he may just find one.

    Lets not lose sight of this……..but it seems he didn’t kill any upstanding, ethical, law abiding citizens here…….they were most likely bangers who had rap sheets a mile long. Maybe Aaron’s role was kinda like a vigilante??

  84. markwri says: Jun 27, 2013 10:57 PM

    Please enough of the Bellicheck, Brady jokes/sarcasm they are not funny. Now that this is a murder investigation, it’s ignorant to even joke about it and mention them in the same sentence. You may not like them or the Pats, but they’re not murderers.

    This is a very sad day/event. I’ve heard enough AH is a dirt bag and a scum.

    No way anyone could have seen this coming. Many athletes hang out with shady characters, only 4 have been arrested and accused of murder. So lay off the Pats should have seen this coming, no one could have seen murder in his future.

    ——————————————————

    I think this may be a stretch. We cant be sure yet that the growth isn’t exponential going back in time, indefinitely. Tommorow’s news may also indicate that the double murder was covering up a quad which was actually covering up for his OCTO-MURDER and so on until we discover that he has actually killed us ALL already. No wonder Dude’s corpse was so close to his house, he was running out of room for the bodies.

  93. diehardtwinsfan says: Jun 28, 2013 8:13 AM

    I don’t know Mass. death penalty statutes, or even if they have one, but when this guy rents a car, people get killed.

    Strikes me of premeditation.
