Accomplice Says That Aaron Hernandez Admitted To Killing Odin Lloyd
According to court documents released on Tuesday, a man linked to the murder case against Aaron Hernandez told police that the former New England Patriots tight end Hernandez admitted to the killing.
Carlos Ortiz, one of the alleged accomplices of Hernandez, told authorities that Ernest Wallace, another alleged accomplice, told him that Hernandez killed Odin Lloyd.
Hernandez is accused of killing Lloyd, a former semi-pro football player, in an industrial park, near Hernandez’s home in Massachusetts.
The documents, which were filed to justify a search of Wallace’s home in Florida, also say that while investigating the murder of Lloyd, authorities also conducted a search in Bristol, Conn., that turned up a vehicle wanted in connection with a July 2012 double homicide in Boston, which authorities say had been rented in Hernandez’s name.
Also on Tuesday, warrants obtained to search Hernandez’s home were unsealed.
Court records say Hernandez was uncooperative, and that he slammed his door when authorities informed him of an investigation.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in Lloyd’s killing
