Aaron Hernandez Has ‘Direct Ties’ to Homicide Victim

Report: Aaron Hernandez Has ‘Direct Ties’ to Homicide Victim, While Police Believe Murder Is Drug-Related

Further details have emerged in the Aaron Hernandez investigation.

A law enforcement source told FOX 25 that the Patriots tight end appears to have direct ties to 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found less than a mile from Hernandez’s North Attleboro home. Police have ruled Lloyd’s death a homicide.

The same source told FOX that Hernandez had been out at a bar in Boston with Lloyd and two other men on the night of the homicide, and that all four left together in a car driven by Hernandez, which Lloyd reportedly confirmed in a text to a friend.

The source also said that “only three men returned to Hernandez’s home at the end of the night and Lloyd was not one of them,” and that forensic evidence was found that links the car to one of the crime scenes, though which crime scene was not specified.
