On June 26, the former New England Patriots tight end was charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old former semi-pro football player. One day after Odin’s death, Aaron posted a provocative tweet that DEFINITELY got fans talking.
Aaron Hernandez, 23, was charged with murder on June 26. He is accused of shooting, execution-style, his good friend, 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. Odin was murdered on June 17, after he was shot multiple times in the groin, arm, side, chest and back. Considering all of the charges he is facing — 1 count of murder, 1 count of carrying a gun without a license, 2 counts of possession of a large firearm, and 2 counts of firearm possession — his June 18 tweet is super-creepy.
Aaron Hernandez Tweet After Murder Of Odin Lloyd — Creepy
Less than 24 hours after Aaron allegedly murdered Lloyd, he tweeted, “good morning” to all of his fans.
Immediately after, Twitter users started making jokes. @JoeyBoots responded, “Did ya have a wicked-killer day?” And @TWSnyderman said, “@AaronHernandez DONT MAKE IT ANYMORE OBVIOUS.”
In all, the message has been retweeted a whopping 2,622 times so far.
Odin Lloyd Allegedly Murdered — Details Behind His Death
The DA said Odin was shot with a .45 caliber semi automatic weapon before his body was discovered near Aaron’s North Attleborough, Mass. home on June 17, according to TMZ.
Prosecutors reportedly said that Odin and Aaron were in contact just 10 hours before his death. Furthermore, keys were allegedly found in Odin’s pocket to a car that had been rented by Aaron.
Prosecutors believe Odin recently said something to Aaron that destroyed his trust, giving Aaron a motive to kill. (Could they have gotten this information from Aaron’s girlfriend?)
Aaron Hernandez: More Info About The Patriots Tight End
Aaron was on the New England Patriots from 2010 to 2012, and was dropped from the team immediately following the arrest.
The Patriots made waves in 2012 when they signed him to a five-year extension, which included a $12.5 million signing bonus. It was the second-largest extension ever in the NFL, and it showed the total faith the team had in his abilities.
Aaron and Odin grew close as Odin dated Shanea Jenkins, the sister of Aaron’s fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins.
Aaron and Shayanna have an 8-month-old child together.
