Hernandez Orchestrated Execution Says Prosecutors



Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez drove his friend to a remote spot in an industrial park in the dead of night and — still fuming from a fight at a nightclub three nights earlier — "orchestrated his execution," prosecutors alleged in a Massachusetts court Wednesday.
Hernandez pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and five firearms charges, including possessing a large-capacity firearm, more than a week after the body of Odin Lloyd, 27, was found near his Massachusetts home. A judge ordered him held without bail.
Hernandez "drove the victim to the remote spot, and he then orchestrated his execution. That's what it was," First Assistant District Attorney William McCauley said in Attleboro District Court.
"As (Lloyd) tried to turn, he was shot in the back, and the defendant and his confederates stood over him and delivered the two fatal shots," McCauley said, adding: "He orchestrated the crime from the beginning and took steps to conceal and destroy evidence."
Wearing a white V-neck shirt, red sports shorts and handcuffs, Hernandez showed no emotion as prosecutors laid out a bruising account of what allegedly happened the night Lloyd, a semi-professional football player, was killed, citing what they say is surveillance camera footage, text messages and witnesses who were working the overnight shift who heard gunshots as evidence. Hernandez wiped tears from his face at the very end of the arraignment.
Lloyd's bullet-punctured body was found by a jogger June 17 in an industrial park a mile from Hernandez's North Attleborough home. The death was ruled a homicide.

Prosecutors said that the killing was prompted by a fight between the two friends during a trip June 14 to a Boston nightclub. Three days later, Hernandez and two friends allegedly picked Lloyd up at his house at 2:30 a.m. Surveillance footage from Hernandez's house shows him leaving earlier in the night with a weapon, prosecutors said.
After getting into the car, Lloyd allegedly texted a family member, asking, "Did you see who I am with," prosecutors said. He then texted that it was Hernandez and followed it up with "Just so you know" in another text message, the prosecutors alleged during the arraignment.
Later that morning, between 3:23 a.m. and 3:27 a.m., employees who were working the overnight shift at the industrial park where Lloyd's body would later be found reported hearing gunshots, authorities said. It's not clear who investigators believe fired the shots.
"It is at bottom a circumstantial case. It is not a strong case," Michael Fee, Hernandez's attorney, said in court.
Prosecutors allege that security videos from Hernandez's house show him with firearms after Lloyd was murdered and show a Nissan Altima — the same type of car Hernandez had rented — going to and coming from the site where Lloyd's body would be found. He was seen exiting the vehicle at 3:29 a.m. with a gun at his home on the surveillance footage, prosecutors claim, shortly after authorities say Lloyd was killed.
Hernandez, 23, was placed in handcuffs and put in a police cruiser just before 9 a.m. Wednesday by Massachusetts State Police and North Attleborough police. Authorities have searched his home, on the Rhode Island line not far from the Patriots' stadium, several times over the past week.
Less than two hours after the arrest, the Patriots announced they were releasing Hernandez.
Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was taken out of his home in handcuffs more than a week after a body was found near his Massachusetts home.
"A young man was murdered last week and we extend our sympathies to the family and friends who mourn his loss. Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation. We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do," a statement from the team read.
The Patriots drafted Hernandez in 2010. Last summer, the team gave Hernandez a five-year contractworth $40 million, including a signing bonus of $12.5 million.
The investigation also cost Hernandez his endorsement contract with CytoSport, which makes Muscle Milk and other supplements for athletes, last week.
Further information about the investigation is likely to be scarce. Attleboro District Court Magistrate Mark Sturdy sealed the case records and has imposed a gag order on prosecutors and defense attorneys alike.
Separately, Hernandez is also embroiled in a civil lawsuit by a Connecticut man, Alexander Bradley, who alleges Hernandez that shot him in the eye after the two left a Miami strip club in February.
According to a Palm Beach County police report, the case was abandoned because Bradley refused to cooperate with authorities.
Hernandez lives with his fiancée and their infant, according to Fee.

OT - Re: Hailey Dunn

Remains were discovered on Saturday, March 16, 2013.
The remains were identified as being Hailey Dunn on Friday, April 26, 2013.

Today is June 27, 2013.

3 months since her remains were discovered by CL.
2 months since her remains were identified.

It is believed Hailey's remains have not yet been released to the family.

What is going on in this case? It's been so quiet. Are they still waiting for test results? I wonder if CL is still under a gag order?

I hope there's movement soon. Justice for Hailey.

Aaron Hernandez was a disaster waiting to happen...and it did.
Odin Lloyd did not have to die over something so stupid. Hernandez felt disrespected by his "friend". With friends like that...

There have been problems in the past with Hernandez. He got away with everything and most likely felt he'd get away with this. What a shame. Immature and entitled. What a waste of talent. What a waste of a life, he's only 23 years old.

Condolences to Mr. Lloyds family and friends.

"It is at bottom a circumstantial case. It is not a strong case," Michael Fee, Hernandez's attorney, said in court.

Interestingly enough, this article (link below) states that they have video of Aaron purchasing blue bubblicious gum.
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57591312/aaron-hernandez-due-back-in-court-for-odin-lloyd-murder-case/

One of the commenters from the article indicated that when the rented car was returned, the attendant said he found blud bubble gum and a gun casing. The police searched the trash and found the gun and the casing. I don't see where this is circumstantial as the blue bubblegum can be traced to him (and DNA can prove he was chewing it) and a gun casing. How in the world are they going to prove that was a coincidence. I don't believe it's all that circumstantial. What the attorney was unable to say, "My client didn't kill Odin Lloyd".

Aaron Hernandez was a disaster waiting to happen...and it did....Hernandez surrounds himself with yes-men who praise him for his "genius" ...and who blindly follow his psychopathic orders. He finds college students as his henchmen. Concussions are a factor.

Mike Beth, Rossman’s roommate, was said to have helped him to his bed. Beth, who was working on a class assignment, then walked Spierer down the hallway to Rosenbaum’s apartment. Rosenbaum, who had two non-students staying with him that weekend, claims he tried to convince Spierer to sleep on his couch. After she refused, according to Rosenbaum, he watched from his balcony as Spierer – barefoot and without her cellphone – walked home alone in the dark. The walking distance between the two apartments took approximately six minutes, according to police.

"For her to recover in such a short period of time, call it an hour or more, doesn’t make sense to me," Rob Spierer said.

Rossman and Rosenbaum declined to comment when contacted repeatedly by Fox News. Beth could not be reached.

If Rosenbaum’s story holds true, Spierer was an ideal target for a predator looking to abduct a woman, according to former FBI agent Mike Harkins.

"Certainly she was a very vulnerable individual," Harkins said in an interview last month. "Her petite size, her condition she was in would have made an easy target for someone looking to commit that type of a crime."

Anyone with information on the case is urged to call the Bloomington Police Department 24-hour tipline at 812-339-4477 or contact them by email at policetips@bloomington.in.gov.

Do psychopaths feel an affinity towards each other? I think there are many in LE that are psychopaths...they refuse to arrest criminals as they are like minded.

Oh my God. They found Dylan Redwine's remains. Sad sad day.

While I felt he would never be found alive it's really sad. Glad he has been found though the article didn't make it seem like they found all of him. I hope they found evidence pointing to what happened to him and who caused it

Jo said...

How does a person have the ability, motivation, and determination to become a professional athlete and then also the ability to kill possibly 3 people if new allegations are also founded? I don't understand being associates with that lifestyle when you have done so much to get yourself to a better one.

It seems there may be more charges filed against this thug. 2 more unsolved murders are being looked at in connection with Hernandez.

******************

I think it is a good sign that they have not released Hailey's remains. This means they must still be working on her case. I hope.

Speaking of hope. Hailey's Hope located on the property of 1804 Chestnut St, her home, has been ignored and left to fall apart. All the work that the volunteers did to set this up with flowers, crosses, windmills, etc as a reminder of Hailey are now buried in 6 foot overgrown grass. No one is taking care of this property supposedly because Clint, Hailey's father, does not want it there and will not let anyone tend to it.

It is now a reminder of how Hailey was cared for by her mother and father while she was alive. They didn't take care of her. They were much too involved in their own lives.

Strangers from around the country and other countries have cared more for this beautiful, bright, young girl. Sad.

SERIAL posting! SORRY!

I was sitting at the table doing reading group with students once when a lICE fell off ONE BOY. I didn't want to embarrass him, yet wasn't sure that's what it was. I put surreptitiously put TAPE OVER IT ...and kept it under my elbow till after class. Then I had the nurse LOOK AT IT AND CHECK him. Sure enough...lICE, and the whole class DIDN'T HAVE TO KNOW. 

Rule 13. :)

Anon @ 8:01, I fail to see what Clint could possibly have to do with Haileys' memorial being taken care of or not by Hope for Hailey or anyone else when Clint no longer lives in that area. Clint wouldn't be in any position to prevent anyone from taking care of Haileys' memorial when he's not even there.

Also, wasn't Haileys' memorial originally set up on the bridge and not the home where she lived? How did it wind up in the front yard of the home that has been abandoned by Billie and most likely has fallen into foreclosure?

Care to explain? Thank you, Observer

Ref Anons' post at l:15 a.m. 6/28; This is a strange story about the lice on the child that fell off his head in class and the teacher (Sus) putting tape on it to conceal it so the whole class wouldn't have to know.

This seems a little far fetched, when most states (all?) mandate that the entire school is required to be examined by the school nurse to determine additional lice infestation if a single child is found to carry headlice.

Starting with the class where the lice was found on one child, the entire class is examined as normally more than one child is carrying the infestation, and usually it is impossible to determine where the lice got its' origins. Children touch, they play together, eat together, sit together, trade caps & sweaters and so on.

The nurses' examination is required by school regulations to continue from classroom to classroom and grade to grade of each and every child in the school.

I know of one case where a child was found with headlice, and the entire school was found to contain more than 1/3 of all students with headlice and they were all suspended for three weeks for the treatment of their lice and were not allowed to reenter the school until they each passed a clean lice-free examination, including family members.

Headlice is very difficult to get rid of and I'd like to know how Sus thought she could keep this a secret. Getting rid of headlice requires every member of the family being treated as well as every pillow and all bedclothes being treated, including couches, chairs, etc.

I'd like to know how teacher Sus thought she could keep this headlice case a secret, or why she would even want too. To save one kid from embarassment does not cure a headlice infestation while it continues to run rampant among other students and their families. (Just my humble thoughts on the matter...) Thank you, Observer

Anon @ 5:08, it is possible for a child or other person to have headlice and not know they do. If their head just feels itchy and they've never examined their scalp to try to determine WHY it is itchy and haven't seen anything fall out of their hair, it's entirely possible one might not realize they are carrying headlice.

This is another reason schools are required to examine the head of all students when one is found to be carrying headlice as many of them don't realize they have them, nor do their families.

We had friends living in another county who have two daughters, very clean and well-dressed people, that upon school nurse examination they were both found to have headlice, as did many other students in that (private!) school who also did not know that they and some of their family members also had the infestation. It was VERY difficult for them to get rid of the lice. Observer

Back on topic.... Apparently this Hernandez guy is more than just a thug as I originally said, obviously a killer thug on the kill of anyone who disputes with him, drunk, sober or otherwise. Now there are two MORE suspected killings by this dude?

What a damned shame to throw away the lucrative and good life he could have enjoyed, all for being a blood-lust trigger happy hothead. I have no pity for the life he has now carved out for himself. Life in prison, if not the death penalty for what appears to be a very dangerous man.

Does anyone know much about the lives of those three he is reputed to, or suspected of having murdered? Observer

I don't see anything odd about covering a possible bug with tape so the other kids didnt have to know. I used to teach preschool and I was discrete about checking for bugs or nits so the other kids didnt shout it out loud that someone had bugs. Four and five year olds have no filters. If a teacher thought someone had lice the kid would be quietly taken to the nurse for verification, parents called etc. and a letter got sent home with every student - a letter that didnt name the kid with lice. So to try and discretely determine if what she found was a bug and to send a student to the nurse is perfectly normal. It seems like there's always someone on here criticizing other posters for no good reason. Cranky people.
