Aaron Hernandez

Judge Throws Out Hernandez Murder Conviction

The Aaron Hernandez story could finally be coming to an end, as a Judge has officially dismissed his conviction for the murder of Odin Lloyd.

According to Yahoo Sports, Bristol County Judge Susan Garsh made a ruling this morning that sided with Hernandez’s estate and made Hernandez “not guilty” of murder. This was based on an old law that claims that a verdict will be “vacated” if a defendant “dies while a conviction is still in the process of appeal.”

In making her decision, Garsh said that, “Abatement is the law in this Commonwealth and this court is required to follow that precedent… the Court has no other choice.”

As those following the Hernandez saga know, he killed himself last month. While prosecutors felt that Hernandez knew about this law- and that this may have been a reason for his suicide- the Judge made the decision she did based on the pre-existing law.

Reports did note that Odin Lloyd’s family was in the courtroom when the judge announced her decision and that they were visibly upset and left the courtroom in a rush.

Aaron Hernandez’s Sexuality Reportedly Being Examined For Murder Motive

Friday, the Daily Mail reported that one of the three suicide notes Aaron Hernandez left in his jail cell was for his gay lover in prison.

Sources close to the investigation told Daily Mail that, “the third letter was written to Hernandez’s gay prison lover, who has not been identified but was believed to be the last person Hernandez spoke to before he took his own life.”

After the Daily Mail report dropped, Newsweek’s Michelle McPhee, who has been covering the Hernandez murder case for some time, reported that Hernandez’s sexuality was once probed as a potential motive in the Lloyd case by police.

McPhee’s report discussed that Hernandez allegedly had an “intimate relationship with a male former high school classmate” and that this “was at the center of the investigation into Lloyd’s murder.”

A co-defendant in the case reportedly informed detectives Lloyd had used a word Hernandez had “taken… as a gay slur” and this is being investigated as possibly having had a hand in Lloyd’s murder.

Aaron Hernandez May Have Done Drug Prior To Death And Other Bizarre Twist

The Aaron Hernandez suicide (which some are questioning) has yet another new twist.

According to CBS Boston, cops are probing whether the 27-year-old smoked synthetic marijuana such as K2 or “spice” before utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window to reportedly end his life on Tuesday night. K2 can have negative effects such as psychotic episodes, paranoia and intense hallucinations.

It has also been reported that Hernandez had the bible verse John 3:16 scrawled on his forehead when he was found dead, and red marker pen on his hands and feet.

The verse says that whoever believes in Jesus “shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

Hernandez has always been an outwardly religious person, or at least that’s the image that he liked to project. During his college football career at Florida, he would read the bible with head coach Urban Meyer every morning at 7:30 AM.

Hernandez’s apparent suicide did come as a surprise, considering he had just been acquitted of a double murder five days earlier and was planning to appeal the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd in which he was serving a life sentence without parole.

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez – Blasted in Legal Battle Over Hacked Jailhouse Phone Calls

The Dirty has exclusively learned Ex-NFL star/convicted felon, Aaron Hernandez, is being blasted by the company he sued – where he blamed them for his jailhouse phone calls being hacked into – with the tech co. saying has no right to privacy BECAUSE HE’S LOCKED UP.

Back in November, Hernandez sued the company Securus Technologies Inc. in Federal Court. The company records all in and out jailhouse phone calls, except certain conversations protected by attorney-client privileges.

Hernandez said the company’s electronic database was hacked and an unauthorized party obtained access to the recordings of the ex-NFL star’s jailhouse phone calls. The calls were hacked back in 2014 while Hernandez was locked up awaiting his murder trial. He sued demanding information on how the conversations were accessed and the number of people who listened.

Then recently, Securus Technologies fired back at Hernandez’s lawsuit demanding the case be thrown out.

The company explains all inmates telephone calls are subject to telephone monitoring except for certain exceptions. Once an inmate receives a PIN and uses the telephones, it is deemed as their consent for the calls to be recorded and monitored … says the company.

Securus stated, “Aaron Hernandez did not and cannot make such allegations. He has no right of privacy in any of the three calls at issue.” They are demanded the lawsuit be dismissed and he be awarded nothing from his complaint.
