Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez Denied Bail Agian and Now Under Suspicion for Involvement in Unsolved 2012 Double Murder in Boston
You can take the the boy out of the hood, but can you take the hood out of the boy?
Bail denied again. Bristol County Assistant District Attorney Bill McCauley denied Aaron Hernandez’s request for bail Thursday, one day after the former New England Patriots tight end was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a friend Odin L. Lloyd. Hernandez’s defense attorney James Sultan argued that his client is not a risk to flee as he had a fiance and child and that the case against him is circumstantial. However, the judge said that the evidence against Hernandez is “overwhelming” and bail was denied.
But it gets worse, if possible.
Could it get any worse for one time star New England Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez? The fallen NFL football star has already been charged with the first degree murder of 27-year-old Odin L. Lloyd. According to the Boston Herald, now police are looking into whetherHernandez was involved in an unsolved July 2012 drive-by killings of Safiro Furtado and Danny Abreu, both of Dorchester, MA.
Boston police said they are also probing a possible link to Hernandez in the unsolved July 2012 drive-by killings of Safiro Furtado and Danny Abreu, both of Dorchester. The two pals were leaving a Theatre District nightclub July 15, 2012, when they were ambushed and sprayed with gunfire from a gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island plates at the intersection of Shawmut Avenue and Herald Street.
Boston police were back at Hernandez’s North Attleboro home last night executing a new search linked to the double murder.
More from the Boston Globe on Hernandez’s possible involvement in a double murder.
The new revelations raised the disturbing prospect that Hernandez might have been playing football games last season with the Patriots after he had participated in a double murder.
Investigators believe a fight broke out at Cure, a club in the Theater District, between two men and a group that included Hernandez. Abreu and Furtado, friends who had grown up in Cape Verde, left the club with three other men in a BMW sedan in the early morning hours of July 16, 2012.
Abreu, who was driving, stopped at a traffic light on Shawmut Avenue, about to make a left onto Herald Street, when a silver or gray SUV with Rhode Island license plates pulled alongside the sedan. Someone from the SUV opened fire, killing Abreu, 29, and Furtado, 28.
The men who were with them survived the attack and the killings were left unsolved.
