    Aaron Hernandez

    Murder of Odin Lloyd

    North Attleborough, Massachusetts, U.S.
    Tuesday Jun 18, 2013

    On June 18, 2013, police searched Hernandez's home in connection with an investigation into the shooting death of a friend, Odin Lloyd, whose body was found, with multiple gunshot wounds to the back and chest, in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's house. The following day, Hernandez assured Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft that he had nothing to do with the shooting. Despite this, Hernandez was "barred" from Gillette Stadium lest it becomes "the site of a media stakeout." The team also decided, a week before his eventual arrest, to cut ties with Hernandez if he was arrested on any charge related to the case.
