When I wake up in the morning and turn on the TV it is not on CNN, it is on NFL Network. This morning’s breaking story is that Aaron Hernandez, TE for the Patriots, has finally been arrested after a week of speculation on his involvement in a local murder.
I am sad for the family of Odin Llyod, who’s body was found in an industrial park by Hernandez’s home on Monday, June 17th. Reports by Lloyds sister claim he was at a club the night before with Hernandez.
Hernandez has taken moves prior to his arrest to hire a defense attorney. We will find out the charges at the arraignment that is planned for later today.
Update: At arraignment Hernandez was charged with murder and possession of an illegal firearm.
