The former New England Patriot star has troubles that just will not end. Hernandez has been indicted in the 16 July 2012 murders of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado. If that is not enough, Hernandez has also been charged with three counts of armed assault with attempt to murder in connection with the same case.
Representatives have reported that the police have the SUV they believe was used in the murders. It was located at the home of Hernandez’s uncle in Bristol, Connecticut. The also, reportedly, have the murder weapon used in the commission of the crimes in question. These charges are on top of the 2013 Odin Lloyd murder charge for which he is being held without bail.
According to Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley; “For us, this case was not about Aaron Hernandez. This case was about two victims, who were stalked, ambushed, and senselessly murdered on the streets of the city they called home.”
Conley went on to say; “These indictments reflect shots fired at three surviving victims who were in the automobile with Mr. Abreu and Mr. Furtado at the time of the homicides. The indictments further charge Aaron Hernandez for unlawfully carrying a .38 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver he used in the attack.”
According to Boston Police Commissioner William Evans; “Mr. de Abreu and Mr. Furtado were ambushed and executed as they drove home along Shammut Avenue in Boston’s South End in the early morning hours of July 16, 2012.”
Hernandez has already pleaded not guilty in the murder of Odin Lloyd and is being held without bail in connection with that shooting. Only time will tell what the outcome of these trials will be. The only things for sure at this moment are Hernandez will face two separate murder trials, is being held without bail and has a long road ahead in an attempt to refute these claims in an attempt to prove his innocence.
