Aaron Hernandez Warrants Are Unsealed
Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is facing murder and multiple gun charges in the death of Odin Lloyd. A judge ordered that search warrants in the murder investigation of Aaron Hernandez be unsealed on Monday. Here is the main information in the unsealed warrants:
- Documents show that Hernandez was not initially cooperative. He didn’t like all of the police questioning and locked the door of his house behind him. This followed Hernandez actually approaching police once he noticed them outside his Massachusetts home. Police asked him about an SUV he had rented. Hernandez claimed he rented it for Lloyd and had last seen him in Boston the day before, according to documents. Hernandez came back out 10 minutes later and agreed to be questioned, according again to documents.
- Police confiscated two cellphones, three iPads, a video camera and a hard drive from Hernandez’s home. The documents show a safe in Hernandez’s home that held a scale and a dish used to weigh drugs. A box of “Game Loads” .22-caliber bullets and 33 bullets for a rifle were also found.
- Hernandez’s fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, said Lloyd was a marijuana dealer and that she had seen him two days earlier after police informed Jenkins that Lloyd was dead. She burst into tears according to documents.
- Following a Father’s Day dinner with Hernandez, Jenkins told police the two went home early and went to bed. She said Hernandez was away that night but unaware of his company. Hernandez then called Jenkins and said not to talk to police via the advice of his agent.
