A judge ordered the release of documents pertaining to the warrants and affidavits around the Aaron Hernandez murder investigation. Some interesting information came out of this release.
Part of the information is a chilling tale of the victim, Odin Lloyd, seemingly aware of his fate, or at least the potential for danger. Having felt that something wasn’t write he texted his sister, Shaquilla Thibou to her her know he was with Hernandez.
From the Boston Globe:
Police said that after Lloyd’s murder, they checked the Dorchester man’s cellphone and discovered a series of text messages between Hernandez and Lloyd that began at 9:05 p.m. on June 16.
“I’m coming to grab that tonight u gon b around i need dat and we could step for a little again,’’ Hernandez wrote to Lloyd.
The two had a total of five contacts with each other before Lloyd’s last message to Hernandez, which he sent around 12:22 a.m. on June 17.
“We still on.’’
According to court records, during the ride from Dorchester to North Attleborough, Lloyd texted his sister, Shaquilla Thibou, informing her in a type of code that he was in a car with Hernandez at 3:22 a.m.
One minute later, he sent his final text.
“Just so you know,’’ he wrote at 3:23 a.m., records show.
What is even eerier is that he could have sent that last text after having been shot to let his sister know who was responsible. An employee of a nearby business said he heard gun shots around 3:15 am, eight minutes before that last text message.
An employee of a business near where Lloyd was shot told police he took his regular break between 3 and 3:30 a.m. and that he heard three gunshots echo through the industrial park at roughly 3:15 a.m.
Hernandez then returned home shortly after at 3:33 am, 18 minutes after shots were heard and 10 minutes after that text message was sent.
Jenkins told police about the surveillance system they had recently installed in their home following a series of housebreaks. Police obtained some of those recordings from June 16 and 17 including an image taken at 3:33 a.m. on June 17 that shows Hernandez is back home standing at the entrance of his basement, moving what looks like a gun from hand to hand.
