Lloyd was found with phone, keys to another car rented by Hernandez

We’ve been trying not to overwhelm you with the details contained in more than 150 pages outlining efforts to obtain search warrants in the Odin Lloyd murder investigation.

But there’s plenty of intriguing stuff buried among the pages and paragraphs.

For example, if Hernandez killed Lloyd, Hernandez was even stupider than previously believed.

One of the affidavits submitted in support of the issuance of multiple different warrants identifies the crime scene, and specifically lists the contents of Lloyd’s clothing.  His cell phone, which led directly to Aaron Hernandez, wasn’t taken from the pocket in Lloyd’s shirt.  His cash ($64.75) wasn’t taken, eliminating the possibility of suggesting that Lloyd had somehow strayed from the group and been robbed by one or more strangers.

The most important new piece of information is that Lloyd’s pockets contained two sets of keys to a Chevy Suburban that had been rented by, yes, Aaron Hernandez.  The Suburban wasn’t connected in any way to the crime scene.  Instead, it’s a vehicle that Hernandez had rented and in turn allowed Lloyd to use.

It’s just another connection between Lloyd and Hernandez, one of only two North Attleboro residents with whom Lloyd was acquainted — Hernandez and his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins.

And maybe it’s a good thing that Hernandez and crew weren’t smarter, if they indeed killed Lloyd.  If they had been smart enough to take Lloyd’s phone and look at it, they may have seen the texts Lloyd had sent to his sister — and they may have been stupid enough to try to kill her, too.

    At this point even OJ thinks Hernandez is guilty.

    This situation is really sickening.

    There sure are alot of rental cars in this guys life. For someone with a multimillion dollar contract this is bizarre. this is bizarre for anyone. This guy was involved in some major underbelly of society stuff. what a shame.

    Not lookin to good this this Hernadez guy

    Hernandez had gotten away with shooting so many people that he didn’t think there was any way he would get caught this time.

    It just gets worse and worse. @footballady52🏈

    I would assume that the reason Hernandez rented cars is because of the liability issues.

    When you rent a car, you have the option of insuring that car under the lessee’s name, ergo car rental company.

    So based on the reports yesterday from Hernandez’s fiance that Lloyd was dealing drugs….and Hernandez was lending him a vehicle….would it be too big of a leap in logic to state that Hernandez was connected to the drug dealing, perhaps fronting the money? There’s that other murder he’s being investigated in connection with as well, I’m starting to think the whole thing was about drugs/drug money

  9. touchdownroddywhite says: Jul 10, 2013 10:12 AM

    So many things that don’t line up. I hope they’re sure about these gun charges cause guilty or not, absent an eye witness testimony regarding the murderer, he’s walking.

  10. DonRSD says: Jul 10, 2013 10:12 AM

    Unless they find the murder weapon, Hernandez has a great chance of getting off.
    OJ got off. Casey Anthony got off & George Zimmerman will walk.

    It is what it is. Reasonable Doubt is all that is needed & its there when it comes to who pulled the trigger.

    Honestly – I dont trust the guy ratting him out. Maybe he did it and is trying to blame Hernandez.

  11. patriots123456 says: Jul 10, 2013 10:13 AM

    With Hernandez’s money he should have purchased a car dealership. Would have saved a fortune on rental cars.

    This tradgedy get’s more bizzare each day as new details surface.

    I expect there are even more murders involved. Might be a full year before all the details unfold IMO.

    All this tells me is that this type of thing has probably been going on for awhile…Hernandez just assumed he was invincible. I would not be surprised if his lifetime body count reaches double digits…how else can you explain the total sloppiness. Someone like that either truly believes they cannot be caught or they actually want to be caught. It is probably good that one of his flophouses was not on a pig farm.

  13. thegonz13 says: Jul 10, 2013 10:19 AM

    Maybe his lawyer will blame Hernandez’ stupidity on concussions and jot his name on the lawsuit against the NFL.

    Is it me or does it seem like Hernandez appear to get dumber with each passing sunrise?

  14. jiveturkeygobbler says: Jul 10, 2013 10:22 AM

    What does Lloyd’s finance have to say about all of this?

  15. jefbob says: Jul 10, 2013 10:33 AM

    What in the world is up with all the rental cars?

  16. ampats says: Jul 10, 2013 10:33 AM

    Going to guess that Hernandez was a member of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program.

  17. spthegr8 says: Jul 10, 2013 10:37 AM

    If Hernandez was still in Madden. I would take his awareness down to a NEGATIVE -74!!!! He may be the DUMBEST man alive!!!

  18. lbijake says: Jul 10, 2013 10:41 AM

    I bet the antics of Gronk do not look too bad to the Pats now!

  19. droyer85 says: Jul 10, 2013 10:43 AM

    All this evidence makes Hernandez look like such a fool. Has he never watched Goodfellas? He might as well have shot him in his front yard and left him there.

  20. pizzon says: Jul 10, 2013 11:25 AM

    one would think you would try to cover your bases when committing a crime of this magnitude, obviously Hernandez wasnt a fan of CSI.

  21. whatnojets says: Jul 10, 2013 12:09 PM

    Ortiz told police that during the drive, Hernandez told Lloyd that Lloyd had been “chilling” with people Hernandez had problems with, the documents say. But Ortiz told police the two men shook hands and the problem seemed smoothed over. However, the Altima soon stopped, and everyone but Ortiz got out to urinate, according to Ortiz’s account.

    The witness told police he then heard gunshots before Hernandez and Wallace got back into the car without Lloyd and the car sped away.

    Ortiz said he couldn’t see who fired the shots because it was dark. Back at Hernandez’s home, Ortiz said, Wallace asked him to get a small gun out from under the driver’s seat. Ortiz said he did and gave it to Hernandez once they were inside.

    Hernandez is that stupid, its been proven that he was atleast there when Lloyd was killed. There’s a story behind all of this that explains why Lloyd was killed, but we probably will never know. Lloyd was apparently a drug dealer, from what Hernandez’s fiance says, but police found a scale and a dish used to weigh drugs in Hernandez’s safe at his house. The dish doesn’t really go with marijuana dealing, it goes along more with cocaine it a powder substance. But what drug dealer has just 60 bucks in his pocket? Also, on the text Hernandez said ” I got to get that, and maybe we can step again.” What does Hernandez have to get? There’s so many questions as to what happened, but two things are for sure, Hernandez is right in the middle of it and Hernandez played some hand in the murder. That doesn’t mean he pulled the trigger, but it does mean he was involved fairly deep.

    I hope they televise the trial on Court TV. will be a ratings bonanza!

  24. godofwine330 says: Jul 10, 2013 12:59 PM

    Damn, this is just sad. Ordinarily I like to believe that police take a sliver of evidence against a famous person just because they have a big fish. Now, I can care less. He is a murderer for real, not on some trumped up charges. I never understood how and why people want to be gangsters.

  25. EJ says: Jul 10, 2013 1:02 PM

    The word stupid is too light of a word for Hernandez. He’s more along the lines of braindead.

    Court TV went away in 2008 and was renamed TruTV. Just an FYI

    For example, if Hernandez killed Lloyd, Hernandez was even stupider than previously believed.
    ==================================
    I know you can use stupider, but c’mon. More studpid sounds better.

    If Ortiz got the gun from under the seat then his prints may be on it. Could he have been more stupid than to pick up the gun? Not sure they will ever find it though.

    This guy signed a 40 million dollar contract why the hell does he rent so many cars? Just buy a couple

  30. skippernuts says: Jul 10, 2013 1:40 PM

    So could he not decide on what car he wanted to buy? Why so many rentals? Why!!?

  31. chi01town says: Jul 10, 2013 2:29 PM

    Aaron is lucky Im not the judge. cause I would sit his a%$ in the chair and turn it on right now. He murdered Lloyd and that was his plan the whole time.

  32. stewart09 says: Jul 11, 2013 10:39 PM

    rental cars is simple he obviously used them for his underlings(or himself) to move drugs or other nefarious deeds. the rental cars would get changed prob every 3 months or so the rental company would then fully clean the car destroying any evidence of the deeds, they would just then get a new rental car and repeat the process.
