Search warrant confirms Hernandez is a suspect in July 2012 murders

Not long after former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez found himself accused of killing Odin Lloyd in June 2013, Hernandez’s name surfaced in connection with an unsolved double murder from eleven months earlier.

If it wasn’t already clear that Hernandez is a suspect in the shooting deaths of Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu (and it should have been), it now is.  Via the Associated Press, a search warrant released Thursday confirms that Hernandez is the suspected shooter.

The warrant and accompanying affidavit initially were executed on June 28, less than two weeks after Lloyd was killed in an industrial park close to Hernandez’s home in Massachusetts.

Another recently-released warrant suggests that Hernandez may have killed Lloyd to prevent him from spilling the beans on Hernandez’s involvement in the July 2012 shootings.

Hernandez has been held without bail since June on charges of murdering Lloyd.  No trial date has been set.

    Mike, could you explain how Hernandez has been held when the evidence (mentioned in the media) looks circumstantial ? How did the prosecution manage to pull that off ?

    I hope the Pats win the superbowl and this punk is stuck in his cell while they do it, knowing he could have been part of that and knowing that they never needed him despite all the hype he got.

    Should have demanded a speedy trial Aaron…The longer the state has to build their case in the death of Lloyd, the more this double murder investigation in Florida draws the feds attention…

    MAN…It’s very difficult to believe this guy roamed among society for as long as he did. He is truly a psychopath, scary by even NFL-type-tough-guy standards.
