    Aaron Hernandez has virtually no friends, little family and no other “outlets” other than football, a former teammate said in an extensive interview about the ex player now charged with first-degree murder.
    Jesse Holley played alongside Hernandez last season with the New England Patriots and is the first player to speak openly about Aaron.
    Another ex teammate, Matt Light, was quoted Thursday saying: “I never talk about other guys, but I will say I have never embraced — never believed in — anything Aaron Hernandez stood for.”
    Light would not say anything more, but Holley, now with the Dallas Cowboys, shed some light on the former University of Florida Star.

    “Aaron was a cool dude. He was a really cool dude,” Holley told Dallas CBS radio station 105.3.
    “He didn’t have many friends. He lived, ate, slept football. A lot of times that’s all he had. He didn’t have much family.
    “Him and I have had a couple of intimate conversations. We prayed together.
    “Another guy on that team, Matt Slater, was a very spiritual guy. We all talked to Aaron. We prayed with Aaron.

    “And Aaron spent so much time around football because he had nothing, no other outlets. He had his fans and stuff like that but family was few and far between.”
    Hernandez is not only charged with the first-degree murder of Oden Lloyd but he is also a suspect in a 2012 double homicide.
    Two men who police allege are connected to Hernandez and the Lloyd murder have also been arrested.
    Hernandez is behind bars and bail has twice been denied. He entered a plea of not guilty to the murder charge and five gun-related charges.

    As Radar reported, Hernandez has been tied to drugs and gangs. At the University of Florida he failed a drug test and it was an open secret on campus that he regularly smoke marijuana.
    Holley expressed shock at the circumstances.
    “Aaron was a fun loving guy. This is a wild situation but you never know what somebody is capable of doing until they do it,” Holley said.
    “And to do something like this, and it’s still innocent until proven guilty …it’s just a ‘Wow’ situation”

    Meanwhile, Hernandez’s spectacular fall continued Friday as the Patriots announced that any fan who purchased his number 81 jersey could trade it in for another jersey.
    A team spokeman said: “We know that children love wearing their Patriots jerseys, but may not understand why parents don’t want them wearing their Hernandez jerseys anymore,. We hope this opportunity to exchange those jerseys at the Patriots ProShop for another player’s jersey will be well received by parents.”
    Earlier, the NFL suspended sales of Hernandez jersey.

    Aaron Hernandez Turned To Drugs After Father’s Death PLUS How Tim Tebow Tried To Save Him

    Former pro football player Aaron Hernandez turned to drugs after his father died in 2006, a life-changing event that helped put him on a path filled with chronic trouble – and RadarOnline has the details.
    Hernandez, 23, is behind bars, denied bail, and charged with first-degree murder in the execution-style slaying of Odin Lloyd, 27, a friend and semi-pro football player.
    But while many people tried to help Hernandez in the years after his father’s sudden death, perhaps the most famous of them all was Tim Tebow, the legendary University of Florida quarterback.
    PHOTOS: Most Notorious American Murder Trials
    Tebow, well known for his devout Christian beliefs, was crucial in convincing Hernandez to leave his home in Connecticut and play for the University of Florida.
    At the time, Hernandez was starting to show the first signs of a troubled life and was expected to play college football at the University of Connecticut, where his brother was the quarterback.
    But Hernandez made a visit to Florida, a visit that was partly hosted by Tebow, then a freshman quarterback and Hernandez made the decision – shocking to those close to him at the time – to leave home and play tight end for the Gators.

    “But they weren’t close at Florida,” one person familiar with the program told Radar. “Tim obviously became the team’s leader but he came from a different world than Aaron.
    “They didn’t hang out off the field. Sure, Tim tried to encourage him to live a good life, a religious life, just like he does with so many people.
    “But after playing a huge role in convincing Aaron to come to Florida, Tebow lost any influence he had over Aaron, who quickly got into trouble.”
    PHOTOS: Stars Who Have Been Arrested
    Multiple reports – and sources to Radar – confirm it was well known that Hernandez smoked marijuana regularly at the University of Florida. He failed drug tests and was suspended for one game.
    And just months after arriving at the university, Hernandez was questioned in the shooting of two men in a nightclub. He wasn’t charged.
    It was the death of his father, many feel, that started him on the road to trouble.
    According to the Boston Globe, Hernandez admitted he began using drugs after the death of his father.
    That was in 2006.
    PHOTOS: Celebrity Death Threats
    Later Hernandez tattooed on his left arm his father’s favorite qutoe: “If it is to be, it is up to me.”
    Hernandez was a home-town hero in Bristol, Conn. but even his high school coach was concerned about him. In 2010 Hernandez fell in the NFL draft and it was an open secret that pro teams were wary of his off-field life.
    Doug Pina, his high school coach, said at the time: “Personally, I’ve always had concerns. He’s still finding himself. With the right people around him … he’ll do very well.”
    Tebow was one of the “right people” at Florida, but multiple sources confirmed they had virtually no contact off the field – except for team-related events – when they played together.
    Now, wth Hernandez in a jail cell facing life in prison, Tebow is joining the New England Patriots, the team that cut all ties with Hernandez less than two hours after his arrest.

    Aaron Hernandez murder charge: two more suspects held by police

    Ernest Wallace turns himself in to police in Florida while Carlos Ortiz charged with illegally carrying a gun in Massachusetts

    A second man was taken into custody in connection with the murder charge against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in the shooting death of one of his friends. Meanwhile, relatives of the victim prepared for his funeral.
    Two men who authorities say were in a car with Hernandez before one of his friends was shot to death are in custody. On Friday, one was charged with illegally carrying a gun and the other accused of being an accessory after murder.
    Hernandez was charged with murder this week, and prosecutors haven't said who fired the shots that killed his friend Odin Lloyd, a Boston semi-pro football player.
    Amid the flurry of activity in the courts, Lloyd's relatives were preparing for his funeral in Boston on Saturday. A relative said the service will be at Church of the Holy Spirit in the city's Mattapan section.
    Lloyd played for the Boston Bandits and was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.
    Carlos Ortiz, who was arrested in Connecticut but was transferred to Massachusetts to face the gun charge, and Ernest Wallace, who walked into a South Florida police station to surrender, were identified earlier as being with Hernandez and Lloyd the night of his shooting death, a prosecutor said.
    Ortiz was charged Friday with carrying an unlicensed firearm in North Attleborough on June 17, the day Lloyd was found shot to death near Hernandez's home there. Details of the charge weren't released.
    Wallace, whose wanted poster was released Thursday night, surrendered in Miramar, Florida, police said. Authorities had been seeking Wallace on a charge of acting as an accessory after Lloyd's murder. Details of that allegation also weren't released.
    Police arrested Hernandez on Wednesday at his home and charged him with orchestrating Lloyd's execution-style shooting. Prosecutors said Hernandez orchestrated the killing because Lloyd talked to the wrong people at a nightclub.
    Hernandez, Ortiz and Wallace were in a Nissan Altima with Lloyd shortly before his death, Bristol County, Massachusetts, district attorney C Samuel Sutter said.
    "We now have in custody the three individuals who were in the silver Nissan Altima," Sutter said Friday when Ortiz was arraigned on the gun charge in Attleboro District Court.
    All three men have ties to Bristol, Connecticut: Hernandez grew up there, Ortiz had been living there and authorities had conflicting addresses for Wallace there and in Miramar.
    Hernandez pleaded not guilty to murder and was denied bail Thursday. Ortiz also was being held without bail pending a court hearing on July 9. Wallace was taken to a jail in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., pending extradition proceedings, police said.
    Hernandez's lawyer argued in court that the case is circumstantial. He said Hernandez, who was cut by the Patriots the day he was arrested, wanted to clear his name.
    Ortiz's attorney, John Connors, said he will seek bail for his client at the July 9 hearing. He described Ortiz as a "gentle person" and said he will advise Ortiz to plead not guilty.
    "I can say that his charge has nothing to do with homicide," Connors said.
    Wallace walked into the police station and told officers there was a warrant for his arrest, which officers confirmed by checking a computer database.
    "He stated he knew he had a warrant because he saw himself on TV," Miramar police Officer Gil Bueno said. "He was very cooperative. It was uneventful."
    An attorney for Wallace, David Meier, told The Boston Globe that his client was visiting his mother and other relatives in Miramar when he realized he was wanted in Massachusetts and went to police. Meier said Wallace intends to return to Massachusetts "as soon as possible."
    Earlier Friday, Ortiz appeared in Bristol superior court in Connecticut, where a judge authorized turning him over to a Massachusetts state trooper and a North Attleborough officer.
    A friend and a relative of Ortiz said outside the courthouse that they were stunned by his arrest. They said Ortiz is the devoted father of two girls and a boy, all under the age of nine. Ortiz was unemployed recently but previously worked a long time at a Savers clothing store, they said.
    They also said they couldn't believe Ortiz could be part of a murder.
    "He's not that type of person. He has a good heart," said friend Milton Montesdeoca, who added he didn't know Hernandez and never heard Ortiz talk about the football star.
    Also Friday, authorities said law enforcement officers recovered in Bristol a car Wallace was seen driving before he surrendered.
    Authorities have said trouble that led to Lloyd's killing happened June 14, when Lloyd went with Hernandez to a Boston nightclub. Hernandez became upset when Lloyd began talking with people Hernandez apparently didn't like, prosecutors said.
    On June 16, the night before the slaying, a prosecutor said, Hernandez texted two unidentified friends and asked them to hurry to Massachusetts from Connecticut.
    A few minutes later, he texted Lloyd to tell him he wanted to get together, prosecutors said. Authorities say the three men picked up Lloyd at around 2.30am June 17, drove him to an industrial park near Hernandez's home and shot him five times.
    Prosecutors said an ammunition clip was found in Hernandez's Hummer and matched the caliber of casings found at the scene of Lloyd's killing.
    Hernandez, who was drafted by the Patriots in 2010 and signed a five-year contract worth $40m last summer, could face life in prison if convicted.

    Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez is believed to have killed an acquaintance ten days ago because that man knew about Hernandez's alleged involvement in a 2012 double murder, according to new reports.

    Hernandez is now being investigated in connection with the July 2012 murder of two men after leaving a club in Boston's South End and that double murder is said to be the cause of his more recent alleged shooting.

    The Boston Globe broke the news about his possible connection to the 2012 double murder just as a second man has been arrested in connection to the shooting death of Odin Lloyd, whose body was found less than one mile from Hernandez's home.
    Hernandez's lawyers filed an appeal to try to get the athlete out on bail but that was denied Thursday afternoon. After hearing the basic arguments made by the state prosecutor, the judge made the shocking decision to weigh in on the case and say that while the evidence is 'circumstantial for sure' it is still a 'very, very strong case.'

    The hearing took place on the same day that Connecticut prosecutor Brian Preleski identified the second man as Carlos Ortiz, 27, of Bristol, Connecticut who has been charged in connection to Lloyd's shooting.
    Ortiz was charged as a fugitive from justice and waived extradition to Massachusetts. Prison records show he is being held on $1.5million bail at a Hartford jail.

    A statement said he was being held in the investigation of the shooting death of semi-pro football player Lloyd, a friend of Hernandez. Lloyd's body was found in North Attleborough, Massachusetts on June 17 in an industrial park near Hernandez's house.

    Now The Globe is reporting that Lloyd is believed to have known about Hernandez's alleged involvement in the 2012 double murder of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado and Hernandez reportedly killed Lloyd to keep him quiet.


    More...



    'The motive might have been that the victim (Lloyd) knew (Hernandez) might have been involved,' unidentified police officials told The Boston Globe.

    The July 2012 shooting took place after a fight broke out inside Cure, a South End nightclub.

    The fight is said Abreu and Furtado got into an argument with a group of other patrons, which included Hernandez.

    As Abreu drove away from the club in his BMW with Furtado in the passenger's seat, a silver or grey SUV with Rhode Island license plates pulled up to the car and started shooting. There were other men in the BMW who all survived the attack but both Furtado and Abreu died.
    Police have not said how Hernandez is specifically linked to the silver or grey SUV in question, but they have cited a connection to the vehicle as the reason for their suspicion.

    Hernandez's lawyer entered a plea of not guilty for the charges against him for Lloyd's murder and called the prosecution's case- based on surveillance videos and cell phone records- circumstantial. That didn't move the judge, however, as Hernandez was ordered to be held without bail.

    Among those texts were two that Lloyd sent to his sister just minutes before he is believed to have been killed.
    ‘Did you see who I was with?’ said the first, at 3.07am June 17. ‘Who?’ she finally replied.
    ‘NFL,’ he texted back, then added: ‘Just so you know.’
    Moments later, Lloyd would be dead in what a prosecutor called an execution-style shooting orchestrated by Patriots tight end Hernandez because his friend talked to the wrong people at a nightclub.

    It was revealed on Thursday that police have been searching a third-floor unit in a condo complex in Franklin, Massachusetts, that Hernandez had visited in recent weeks, according to the unit's next-door neighbor.

    Condo resident Carol Bailey said that starting Wednesday and continuing Thursday, police removed items from the modest, two-bedroom rental unit and asked her questions about its occupants.

    She said a new tenant told her in May that he was moving in with his cousin, and she realized later that the second man he had referred to that way was the Patriots player.

    'I thought, `This is Aaron Hernandez. He's renting a place here so he can have some peace and quiet,'' the retiree said Thursday.

    The Ledgewood Condominiums resident said she didn't see the two men often, but Hernandez always had a hoodie pulled up when she saw him.

    'I think all of us who recognized who it was didn't want to invade his privacy,' she said of neighbors.

    Bailey said she believed a black Hummer with expired, temporary Ohio tags that was parked at the complex was driven by someone in the condo. She said police towed away the Hummer on Wednesday.

    Prosecutors in Massachusetts on Wednesday said that Hernandez, along with two friends, had picked Lloyd up at his Boston home and driven him to a North Attleborough industrial park where Hernandez shot Lloyd five times with a high-powered handgun.
    Prosecutors said Hernandez and Lloyd had argued a few nights before Lloyd's death when they went to a Boston nightclub together and Lloyd spoke with people that Hernandez said he ‘had trouble with.’
    On June 14, Lloyd went with Hernandez to the Boston nightclub Rumor. McCauley said Hernandez was upset Lloyd had talked to people there with whom Hernandez had trouble. He did not elaborate.
    Two days later, McCauley said, Hernandez texted two unidentified friends and asked them to hurry to Massachusetts from Connecticut. At 9.05pm, a few minutes after the first message to his friends, Hernandez texted Lloyd to tell him he wanted to get together, McCauley said.
    Later, surveillance footage from Hernandez's home showed his friends arrive and go inside. Hernandez, holding a gun, then told someone in the house he was upset and couldn't trust anyone anymore, the prosecutor said.
    At 1.12am June 17, the three left in Hernandez's rented silver Nissan Altima, McCauley said. Cell towers tracked their movements to a gas station off the highway. There, he said, Hernandez bought blue Bubblicious gum.

    At 2:32 a.m., they arrived outside Lloyd's home in Boston and texted him that they were there. McCauley said Lloyd's sister saw him get into Hernandez's car.
    From there, surveillance cameras captured images of what the prosecutor said was Hernandez driving the silver Altima through Boston. As they drove back toward North Attleborough, Hernandez told Lloyd he was upset about what happened at the club and didn't trust him, McCauley said. That was when Lloyd began sending texts to his sister.
    Surveillance video showed the car entering the industrial park and at 3:23 a.m. driving down a gravel road near where Lloyd's body was found. Four minutes later, McCauley said, the car emerged. During that period, employees working an overnight shift nearby heard several gunshots, McCauley said.
    McCauley said Lloyd was shot multiple times, including twice from above as he was lying on the ground. He said five .45-caliber casings were found at the scene.

    Authorities did not initially say who fired the shots or identify the two others with Hernandez.
    At 3.29am, surveillance at Hernandez's house showed him arriving, McCauley said.
    ‘The defendant was walking through the house with a gun in his hand. That's captured on video,’ he said.
    His friend is also seen holding a gun, and neither weapon has been found, McCauley said.
    Then, the surveillance system stopped recording, and footage was missing from the six to eight hours after the slaying, he said.
    The afternoon of June 17, the prosecutor said, Hernandez returned the rental car, offering the attendant a piece of blue Bubblicious gum when he dropped it off.
    While cleaning the car, the attendant found a piece of blue Bubblicious gum and a shell casing, which he threw away. Police later searched the trash bin and found the gum and the casing. The prosecutor said it was tested and matched the casings found where Lloyd was killed.
    As McCauley outlined the killing, Lloyd's family members cried and held each other. Two were so overcome that they had to leave the courtroom.
    The Patriots said in a statement after Hernandez's arrest but before the murder charge was announced that cutting Hernandez was ‘the right thing to do.’
    ‘Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation,’ it said.
    A Florida man filed a lawsuit last week claiming Hernandez shot him in the face after they argued at a strip club in February.
    Hernandez became a father on Nov. 6 and said he intended to change his ways: ‘Now, another one is looking up to me. I can't just be young and reckless Aaron no more. I'm going to try to do the right things.’

    Aaron Hernandez Indicted on First-Degree Murder Charge

    Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was indicted Thursday on a first-degree murder charge in the death of a friend whose bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park about a mile from the ex-player's home.

    The six-count grand jury indictment charges Hernandez with killing 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend. It also contains weapons counts, according to the Fall River division of Bristol County Superior Court.

    Hernandez, 23, pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in June, and he is being held without bail at a county jail. His lawyers say the case against him is circumstantial and they're confident he will be able to clear his name.

    Hernandez signed a new Patriots contract last summer worth $40 million but was cut from the team within hours of his June 26 arrest, when police led the handcuffed athlete from his home as news cameras rolled.

    He could face life in prison if convicted. He was due to appear in Attleborough court later Thursday.

    A jogger found Lloyd's body on June 17 in a North Attleborough industrial park. His mother, Ursula Ward, called him a loving son who never hurt anyone and implored law enforcement officials to get justice for his slaying.

    Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyd's killing because he was upset at him for talking to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub days earlier. They say Hernandez and two associates, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, picked Lloyd up at his home in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood early on June 17 and then drove to the industrial park.

    Final Text Message

    Shortly before his death, authorities say, Lloyd sent his sister text messages. He asked if she had seen who he was with when he got into the car in Boston. Then he indicated who it was in a way that Lloyd's family said he knew his sister would understand. "NFL," he wrote. "Just so you know."

    Moments later, authorities say, Lloyd was dead after gunshots rang out in an unpaved construction area by a warehouse after he apparently got out of the car for what he thought was a bathroom break.

    Authorities have not said who fired the shots, but according to court documents, Ortiz told police in Florida that Wallace said it was Hernandez.

    Wallace has pleaded not guilty to a charge of accessory to murder after the fact. Ortiz has pleaded not guilty to a firearm charge. Both are being held in jail without bail.

    Murder Weapon Found

    Authorities have said they haven't found the murder weapon, which they believe was a .45-caliber Glock pistol. But they recovered a magazine for .45-caliber bullets in Hernandez's Hummer as well as ammunition of the same caliber inside a condo he rented in Franklin, Mass.

    Authorities also recovered a shell casing that matched those found at the homicide scene after tracking the rental car Hernandez was in the night Lloyd died.

    Since then, Boston police have asked police in Hernandez's hometown of Bristol, Conn., for their help with the probe into Lloyd's homicide as well as a 2012 double homicide near a Boston nightclub. A Connecticut police lieutenant said authorities searched the home of Hernandez's uncle, seizing an SUV sought in the double killing that had been rented in Hernandez's name.

    Two men died in the July 2012 shooting in Boston's South End, with witnesses reporting that gunfire came from inside a gray SUV with Rhode Island tags. Boston police haven't reported any arrests in the deaths of 29-year-old Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and 28-year-old Safiro Teixeira Furtado and won't comment on whether Hernandez is a suspect.

    Hernandez is also facing civil litigation after a Connecticut man filed a lawsuit asserting the former player shot him in the face in February after they argued at a Miami strip club. Alexander Bradley, who says he lost an eye, told police at the time he didn't know who shot him.

    In July, a judge ordered him to appear before the Fall River, Mass., grand jury hearing evidence against Hernandez in Lloyd's homicide.

    Warrant links Aaron Hernandez to Boston shooting

    BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Police believe former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was in an SUV when someone inside shot two people to death in Boston in 2012, according to a search warrant filed in Connecticut.

    The warrant does not indicate who investigators believe pulled the trigger or suggest a motive in the shooting of Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado in Boston's South End. No charges have been filed in the case. An attorney for Hernandez did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment Wednesday.

    Hernandez came under scrutiny in the shooting following his arrest in the slaying of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 near Hernandez's North Attleborough, Mass., home. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in that case.

    In searching a home of Hernandez's uncle in Bristol, Conn., in June, police found the SUV wanted in the 2012 shooting in Boston.

    The new search warrant, first reported by The Hartford Courant, was filed in Bristol Superior Court and dated Dec. 11. It sought recordings of phone calls made by a Hernandez associate, Alexander Bradley, while Bradley was jailed in Hartford in October for failing to appear before a Massachusetts grand jury investigating the 2012 shooting.

    Bradley has alleged in a pending lawsuit in Florida that Hernandez shot him in the face after they argued outside a Miami club in February 2013.

    The search warrant filed by Bristol police provides some of the first details of Hernandez's alleged link to the Boston shooting.

    Surveillance camera recordings showed Hernandez and Bradley going into the Boston nightclub Cure at about 12:30 a.m. on July 16, 2012, shortly after the shooting victims went into the club, according to the warrant.

    Hernandez's movements inside the club weren't recorded, but police said Hernandez quickly downed two drinks and that he and Bradley left after about 10 minutes. Surveillance video then showed Hernandez driving a Toyota 4Runner SUV out of a nearby parking garage with Bradley as a passenger, police said.

    The footage shows the victims leaving the club at about 2:10 a.m., and Hernandez's SUV passing by them twice as they walked to a parking garage to get their car, the warrant says. The shooting wasn't recorded by any cameras.

    A third man who was shot in the car but survived, Aquilino Freire, told police an SUV pulled up next to them while they were stopped at a traffic light, and he saw someone in the SUV's back seat laughing, the warrant says. Then, several gunshots were fired from the rear passenger seat into the car, Freire told police. Two other people in the car ran away, Freire said.

    A witness in another car told investigators that he saw an SUV with Rhode Island license plates run a red light, stop next to the victims' car and he heard six gunshots. He described the SUV driver as a light-skinned Hispanic man with short dark hair.

    Another witness gave authorities the same description of the driver and said there was a passenger with hair that was either braided or had beads in it. The witness wasn't sure if the passenger was a man or woman.

    Hernandez has short dark hair, as does Bradley, according to police booking photos.

    When Bradley was being detained at the Hartford Correctional Center, he was informed that all phone calls by prisoners are subject to monitoring. An announcement repeated randomly during the phone calls tells both people on the call that it is being recorded, the warrant says.

    A correctional officer who was monitoring Bradley's calls alerted Bristol police that he believed Bradley discussed details of the Boston shooting in calls to people whom police did not identify. That led police to apply for the search warrant.
