Report: Video shows Hernandez at same club as murder victims

The murder charges against former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez could eventually be tripling.

Already indicted for killing Odin Lloyd in July 2013, Hernandez remains under investigation for the murder of Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu in July 2012.  According to Jenny Wilson of the Hartford Courant, police have obtained surveillance video of Hernandez in the same club with Furtado and Abreu “hours before” Furtado and Abreu were killed in a drive-by shooting.

A grand jury reportedly is investigating Hernandez’s role in the shooting of Furtado and Abreu.  Earlier this year, authorities found the gun they believe was used in the murders.  A car that had been connected to the shooting reportedly was found earlier this year at the home of Hernandez’s uncle.

These pieces of evidence may not be enough to meet the very high standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt.  In both the Lloyd case and the Furtado/Abreu situation, compelling evidence will be needed, or Hernandez will not be convicted.

    Hernandez seems like he became a serial killer after being inspired by watching Dexter. Someone go check behind his AC for a collection of blood slides of his victims.

    As you say, this provides not really anything to tie Hernandez to the murders. However, the fact that, after over a year, they are able to find a suspect they are checking out being in the same building on the same night. That’s pretty amazing. Another bread crumb, I guess.

    Clearly AH was born in the wrong era. He would have fit in with the Chicago mobsters of the 20’s.

    Hernandez is going to walk. They got nothing but circumstantial evidence.
