Victim's sister said her brother left at 2:30 AM in a silver Nissan Altima with three people inside
Hernandez had been renting a Silver Nissan Altima
Hernandez had known the victim for about a year, The victims girlfriend is the sister of Hernadez's Fiance
The police went to question Hernandez, Who didn't answer the door. a squad car was placed outside. Eventually Hernandez came out, and told the cops he knew they were they and that he had been watching them on his surveillance system
A warrant was issued to seize surveillance footage from Hernandez's home.
hernandez had recently installed a 14 camera system with cameras inside and out.
Upon reviewing the footage, they noticed that the first 6-8 hours of footage after the time of the murder was missing.
at 9:02 PM Hernandez texted a friend from out of state "please make it back"
9:05 he texted the victim, indicating he wanted to come by and get together with him
9:35 he texted the same out of state friend "get your bleep up here" then at 10:23 "hurry your bleep up"
The man he was texting and one other showed up at hernandez's home, seen on surveillance footage
Shortly after they arrive, Hernandez is seen with a firearm in his home on the surveillance system says "he is upset that he can't trust anyone anymore"
the three left Hernandez's home at 1:12 AM in the silver Nissan Altima, captured on survelliance, phone records and cell tower
the went from Hernadez's home to route 95, headed south towards (? couldn't understand) they turned around and went north. the cell phone tower tracked their movement to a gas station off route 128
at 2:10AM Hernandez bought Gas, Bubbalicious blue cotton candy gum, and black and milds which are used for smoking mariujana (the prosecutor seems to be mistaken about common blunt cigars but oh well)
Next they went to the victims home, at 2:32 am Hernandez sent a text "we're here" to the victim, this is when the victims sister saw him leave with them, Hernandez was driving
They drove back to North Attleboro, this is corroborated by some random surveillance cameras and route was determined by time and distance traveled.
during the ride, Hernandez had a conversation with the victim indicating he was upset with him. The two had gone to a club together friday night.
he said some things happened that night and he wasn't sure if he could trust the victim, one of them was that the victim had spoken to some people He had troubles with, and he was mad about it.
At 3:07 AM the victim sent a text to his sister "did you see who I am with" no response he texted again at 3:11 AM "Hello?"
at 3:19 am his sister replied "who?" at 3:22 the victim texted back "NFL" then 1 minute later "Just so you know"
at the time of these texts, the car is seen on surveillance cameras in the area of the murder site/Hernandez's home
Surveilance cameras show the vehicle driving down the road to the murder site at 3:23 AM
between 3:23 and 3:27 am workers nearby hear multiple gunshots
cameras pick up the vehicle along the route between the muder site and Hernandez's home at 3:27 and 3:28 AM.
Hernandez's own Surveilance picks sees him arriving back home at 3:29 AM
Police confirm it is only a 2 minute drive.
autopsy found that all evidence was consistent with the victim being murdered where he was found. In other words, he wasn't dumped. Also consistent Time of death to the time the car was there.
two through and through wounds to the victim's chest. Police returned to the scene and dug where the victim was, they found the bullets, indicating the victim was on the ground when he was shot. Both bullets were .45 caliber, consistend with the casings found. All fired from the same unknown gun

they go inside. Surveillance shows Hernandez walking around with a gun in his hand.
all three go to the basement. Surveillance cameras shut off
later that day, 5:30 PM Hernandez and his companions return the Nissan Altima to the rental agency, Hernandez offers the attendant Blue Bubbalicious.
one of the side mirrors is broken on the car, footage of the vehicle earlier in the night suggest it wasn't broken when he left boston, he tells the rental agency he didn't even notice it. The evidence being that it was broken sometime between leaving boston and arriving back at home.
He rents another car and returns home, companions leave.
At the rental agency, a piece of bubbalicious and a shell casing were found, attendant threw them away. When questioned, she told investigators about it, they found it in the dumpster, Shell casing matched to the murder weapon.
Tire impressions at the murder scene right next to the body were consistent with a front wheel drive vehicle (altima is FWD)
Investigators checked out the rental car. Tire treads matched those at the crime scene. Dirt found on the car also matched the crimescene
They found a .22 nearby in a search of everywhere between Hernandez's home and the murder site. Hernandez a month prior had been involved an altercation in providence rhode island. He had someone with him who was seen to place a gun under a car. This man matches the description of one of his companions on the night of the murder.
The gun under the car in Providence was traced to a florida gunstore. The 22 found between Hernandez's home and the murder site was from the same store.
further search warrant of Hernandezs's home ordered. They found 22 ammo, but no 22 gun. They also found a large capacity .762 hungarian semi auto rifle, 32 round clip fully loaded. Hernandez's prints on it, he doesn't have the correct paperwork to own it.
Not recovered was the Black semi auto handgun seen in Hernnadez's hand before and after the murder. the second individuals gun not found either.
hernandez's girlfriend was spoken to by police, she was cooperanting until a call from hernandez telling her not to. She then stopped talking.
the victim had defensive wounds and seemed to attempt to stop the bullets with his arms.
 
I am stunned that this guy can be so incredibly stupid. Forget about throwing away $40M. He had a couple of days to plan the killing and this was the best he could come up with? The police have a minute-by-minute account of the crime. Hernandez should have simply driven the victim to the nearest police station and killed him in the lobby.
 
Let's see how many others from here on out are as stupid as Hernandez, such as current players and coaches. Hernandez example should be a wake up call to other players in college (or pros) who have the same bent or attachments (e.g. to gangs, and we know those exist at the college level). Hopefully, others will get the picture and change whatever they need to, whether it is their friend base or character. The principle "you become who you hang with" applies.

Current coaches at any level don't get off the hook either from learning from Hernandez's case. Could Hernandez's college coach at Florida, Urban Meyer, have done anything to help a guy like Hernandez develop into a class citizen? Maybe not, but coaches need to give it their best shot. I am not saying Urban Meyer did not try to help Hernandez or anyone else develop into a class character. I am just saying coaches should do their best. Here's an article that talks about that thought:
Urban Meyer and Others Enabled Aaron Hernandez.
That's a ballsy title (truthful or not) for the article, but here is remark from that article on a Tony Dungy's thought about a coach's role:
Tony Dungy said when he came to Tampa that if we just win football games here in Tampa then we have failed.
More college and pro coaches need that attitude.

That's what happens when you go to school at a football factory instead of getting an education. An ivy league wouldn't have been near as sloppy :eek:

Here's something creative:

The court records also show that Lloyd kept Hernandez in his phone under the name "Dis N***a."

Plain and simple, Hernandez is a sociopath with a history of violent and anti-social behavior that is known and perhaps more that is not.

He scored as low as a person can in whatever character testing the NFL administers in the combine-draft process.

Well, here is a translation, I think it is probably good.

"I'm going to come by your place tonight and get my stuff. We could go out for a while when I get there. You going to be home?"

"What's up?"

"All right, where?"

Get it?
Aite = alright.
Hit u = hit you up, call you.
idk - you should know this already = i don't know
when I'm dat way = when I'm near your place
 
At first glance I'm baffled at how stupid he is. With his money and connections he could have hired some thug, met and paid cash to the guy face to face to kill the guy he wanted dead. Even if the guy got caught and squealed on AH, it's likely AH could deny it all, and with his attorneys ($$$), skated.

But after thinking about this, I don't believe AH is that intelligent, that deep of a thinker (yes, even though my plan is very simple). I believe his thug mentality, and growing up as a great athlete with everyone around him enabling him - many of them hoping to leach off him - and no Tony Dungee like mentor, the end result is that Hernandez really is this incredibly stupid, and immoral.
