The Aaron Hernandez murder case has been a huge blemish for the NFL and as more information comes out about what happened the night of the shooting, the clearer it becomes of the involvement of the Patriots tight end in the crime.
Following the release of the 156-page court document detailing search warrants for Hernandez, more details have come out about the murder, including the fact that one accomplice accuses the former star of pulling the trigger the nigh Odin Lloyd was murdered. The report details a number of pieces of evidence used in the investigation, including that Hernandez installed an extensive amount of security in his home. According to the Boston Herald, Hernandez was worried about being ripped off and having his home broken into, which is why he put in an extensive security system to protect his fiancé, baby and his home.
Hernandez also rented a flop house in nearby Franklin that was previously a secret and police have used evidence from the surveillance system to implicate Hernandez in the crime. The report from the Herald says that the security system was recently installed and Jenkins added that it could be played over the home entertainment system and came after there were a number of break in attempts at the mansion.
Hernandez wanted to use the cameras to record the street and the area outside the home and experts also showed Hernandez how to disconnect certain cameras at certain times. The police have shown evidence of Hernandez coming home after the murder reportedly took place and the report says that 12 warrants were executed involving Hernandez, including his home, cars and surveillance system.
Reports say that Jenkins at one point was talking to the police about the case after the arrest of Hernandez, but she soon stopped cooperating. She is not considered to be a suspect in the crime and the two originally met and graduated from Bristol Central High School together and she is now 24-years-old. The two were set to be married and they could possibly still do that, as it could help if she is asked to testify and that would bar her from doing so if she wants.
The two have a child together and after Hernandez became a father and got his $40 million contract, he said that he would try to do the right things. Clearly that did not work out. The two lived together at the home that was searched by police and now she may face the idea that Hernandez will be in jail for life. Her sister was dating Lloyd and Hernandez is accused of setting up his execution style murder. Hernandez is facing murder and gun charges and could face a trial next year.
The tight end gained nearly 2,000 yards with 175 catches and 18 touchdowns over his three year career and the Patriots envisioned him playing alongside Rob Gronkowski for many years. Now he is without a team or his freedom and depending on how the case goers, he could remain in jail until the trial.
