Hernandez loses effort to suppress evidence in Lloyd murder case

The contours of any murder case are shaped by a string of rulings regarding evidence that will and won’t be introduced at the eventual trial.  On Monday, former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez lost the first battle regarding the proof that will be available for use by the prosecution during the Odin Lloyd murder trial.

According to the Associated Press, Judge E. Susan Garsh rejected a request to suppress evidence harvested from the video surveillance system installed in Hernandez’s home.

Judge Garsh determined that police had reasonable cause to believe that the video surveillance system “likely captured the images of whoever entered, left and returned to Hernandez’s house in the hours immediately before and after the shooting,” justifying the issuance of the search warrant that collected the evidence.

Hernandez’s lawyers argued in part that the warrant was too broad because it permitted the recovery of images captured inside Hernandez’s home.

The trial currently is scheduled to begin on October 6.  Hernandez faces two other murder charges from an unrelated shooting in July 2012.

  1. CaptainObvious says: There’s only one possible reason Hernandez would wish to suppress evidence from his home surveillance cameras…it clearly shows incriminating footage.

    This lowlife knows he won’t be free for a very long time(hopefully never) and he’s just trying to play any card he possibly can at this point. It is nothing short of stupefying to consider the kind of luxury millionaire life this guy threw away…all over some insignificant BS. I think what this case did more than anything was show that this devilish moron should have been thrown into a cage a LONG time ago.

  2. I keep seeing the double murder from July 2012 described as “unrelated” on this blog, but that crime is probably the reason that Odin Lloyd is dead. The crimes are linked because the 2012 shooting is (allegedly) a motive for murder in the Lloyd case.

  3. The irony, the fact that Hernandez could lose because of the aid of video tape juxtaposed against his team that couldn’t win the Superbowl without the aid of video tape.

  4. If a picture is worth a 1000 words, the video =’s ‘ ‘ dead man walking!’

    $ 40 million, you would think that could by a brain, looks like Hernandez didn’t know where to shop for one.
