It looks like we may have a potential motive in the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. Just one day after being charged with first-degree murder and five gun related counts, it became known that former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is also a possible suspect in a 2012 double-murder that took place in Boston. With knowledge of the double-murder, we have now learned a possible motive in the killing of Lloyd.
According to the Boston Globe, Lloyd may have had information that linked Hernandez to the double-murder last July.
Hernandez’s alleged victim, Odin Lloyd, may have had information about that double killings, officials tell us. Potential motive.

If prosecutors were able to link a possible motive to Hernandez along with a witness, that would likely be all of the evidence they need to put Hernandez behind bars for a long time.
And if it comes out that Hernandez was involved in the double-murder as well, his sentences could just pile one.
It didn’t look like things could get much worse for Hernandez after yesterday’s events, but they certainly have and it looks like this is just the beginning of his very serious legal troubles.
