Here you go:WEEI is saying the 3rd note in cell was to his lover in prison. Can't link anything...
Thanks for posting E5. I didn't realize that. I though that info was still coming from the radio source referred to a few pages back.But interviews with multiple law enforcement officials directly involved in the case say Lloyd—a semipro football player who was dating Hernandez’s fiance’s sister at the time—had information the football star did not want out: that he was bisexual.
One of the notes left by Hernandez was to his prison boyfriend, who is now on 24/7 suicide watch, multiple law enforcement sources confirm. Hernandez’s sexuality would, of course, not be relevant save for the fact that an intimate relationship he allegedly had with a male former high school classmate was at the center of the investigation into Lloyd’s murder.
Well, it wasn't personal if it was the motive for the murder! What I find strange is this alternative version of a previously straightforward story, not the fact that it involves homo/bisexuality specifically. If the Lloyd murder were suddenly being explained by a motive related to drugs, money, hetero sex, etc., I would be just as puzzled.Or it was brought up before but kept quiet because sometimes folks realize that personal things are, you know, personal.
AH deserves trashing for a lot of reasons. Kind of stunning that some people have chosen the one area that is both unjustified and generates sympathy for Hernandez.Florio is out with a strong statement on PFT decrying that the trashing of AH has already begun. The reactions to it are predictably sad. The judge who entered the preservation order really needs to be attentive to its enforcement. If there was an institutional screw up, if someone was asleep at the switch, it needs to come out.
I agree - it's strange that this is coming out now - if being outed was a potential motive, you would think it would have been a big deal around the trial. I can't see the prosecution just ignoring that.Well, it wasn't personal if it was the motive for the murder! What I find strange is this alternative version of a previously straightforward story, not the fact that it involves homo/bisexuality specifically. If the Lloyd murder were suddenly being explained by a motive related to drugs, money, hetero sex, etc., I would be just as puzzled.
School's canceled today 'cause Kurt & Ram killed themselves in a repressed, homosexual, suicide pact.Or to drive some other narrative? Stupid jock culture drove him to murder then that + CTE drove him to suicide, for example. Let's ban football, yippee.
I think it's good that the judge entered an order preserving evidence. I think there may be a back story or two we don't know, and it's important to preserve what can be preserved.
I posted the Daily Mail story here with reservations, but that seems the least of it at this point.
http://ew.com/books/2017/04/27/james-patterson-aaron-hernandez/Though it’s barely been a week since convicted murderer and former NFL star Aaron Hernandez died by suicide in prison, author James Patterson already has plans to write a true crime book about Hernandez. Patterson’s publisher Little, Brown announced his plans on Thursday.
According to the release, “The non-fiction book will investigate the dramatic rise and fall of the football star, who left behind a murder sentence, a young daughter, and shocking secrets.” Patterson’s chronicle will follow Hernandez from his Connecticut upbringing, through his college football days at the University of Florida and signing his $40 million NFL contract at age 22, and culminates in the crimes (a murder for which he was convicted and a subsequent double-murder for which he was found not guilty) that preceded his death in prison at age 27.
https://sports.yahoo.com/news/aaron-hernandezs-suicide-depicts-jesus-christ-230312044.htmlBefore hanging himself with a prison bedsheet, Aaron Hernandez cut his right middle finger and in blood drew circular marks on each of his feet, consistent with images of the feet of Jesus Christ after he was hung from the cross.
In red pen, Hernandez also wrote John 3:16 on his forehead, a scripture verse that declares eternal life for all – even the most wicked – as long as they believe God sent his son to perish for them.
On a nearby table, a Bible was open to John 3:16, with the verse marked in blood. “John 3:16” was also written in blood on the wall of Hernandez’s cell No. 57 of the G-2 unit of the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.
All of this comes from a Massachusetts State Police report into Hernandez’s death on April 19. The report, released on Thursday evening, concludes Hernandez’s death was due to suicide and requests the case be closed unless further information becomes available.
The Worcester County (Mass.) medical examiner had also ruled it a suicide. After initially declaring skepticism at Hernandez taking his own life, his family has lately remained silent on the cause of death.
State prosecutors are hoping to use the letter to argue that Hernandez's murder conviction should not be vacated in the wake of his suicide, as it would "reward the defendant's conscious, deliberate and voluntary act," according to a court filing...
They argued that abatement lacks any solid historical or legal basis, and added that Hernandez's death technically completed his life sentence.
"A defendant, who can cut off his own criminal appeal by suicide and stall civil litigation by a stay of proceedings and then prevent application of collateral estoppel, has the reins of the entire justice system in his own hands," prosecutors wrote.
