Odin Lloyd, killed two weeks ago tonight, knew Aaron Hernandez. Two other murdered men to whom Hernandez has been tied didn’t know him.
According to Antonio Planas of the Boston Herald, 28-year-old Safiro Furtado and 29-year-old Daniel Abreu weren’t acquainted with Hernandez, according to their families.
“Whatever they got caught up with, it’s something that just happened at the moment
,” said Jose Centeio, a cousin of Furtado who employed both men at a cleaning business. “That’s the sad thing about it.”
The two men were killed in a hail of bullets in downtown Boston after leaving a nearby bar.
“They don’t have any association with wrongdoing,” Centeio said. “Every family member is anxious to get some kind of closure.”
Closure could be coming, or at least the commencement of a process that could lead to closure. After 11 months of nothing, a case that was growing cold finally is heating up. And it looks like someone who claims Hernandez was involved is talking to police.
