While former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is in jail for the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd last June, he is about to face even more murder charges that will make it hard for him to get out from behind bars anytime soon.
According to My Fox Boston, Hernandez has been indicted on murder charges stemming from a double-murder in Boston back in 2012.
Hernandez has been linked to the double-murder for quite some time, and indictment has finally come through.
A press conference will be held on Thursday at 11: 30 a.m. ET by the Suffolk County District Atorrney and Boston Police Department which is when the indictment is expected to officially be announced.
From FOX25 Boston:
Court documents have indicated that investigators suspect Hernandez was the shooter. The SUV investigators suspect he was driving was found hidden away in a garage at the home of his cousin Tonya Singleton in Bristol Connecticut.
The indictment indicates that authorities believe Hernandez killed the men months before the start of the 2012-2013 NFL season. Hernandez played tight end for the Patriots. He signed a 40 million dollar contract with the team in August 2012.
Following the murder of Odin Lloyd, there was some belief that the motive for his death was because he knew about Hernandez’s connection to the double-murder of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado in July of 2012 and the former NFL player was looking to cover his tracks.
We will learn of the new findings at today’s press conference.
