Aaron Hernandez, who was released by the New England Patriots, was arrested today for murder of his finacee's sister's boyfriend. Did you follow that? Ah, the tangled web we weave. Over the next several months we will hear about the witnesses, the evidence and why he was arrested. We will also see, hear and read on the news, Facebook and Twitter what the court of public opinion believes. Social media will effect this from the very beginning.
Odin Lloyd, Boston Bandits (semi-pro) football player, was found dead approximately one mile away from Hernandez's home. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his front and back. Early reports state Hernandez and Lloyd got into a fight or argument at a nightclub.
The Patriots drafted Hernandez in 2010 from the University of Florida. If he is convicted I wonder if he will have to repay the Patriots any monies given to him, in anticipation of future services, pursuant to his signing bonus or contract? I guess we will see.
