Looks like former NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez really is a dumb as he looks. Hernandez is in jail as he awaits trial after being charged with first degree murder. Hernandez is suspected of killing his “friend,” Odin Lloyd.
Via Black Sports Online, Hernandez has been using coded messages to talk to his people outside of jail about the murder charge.
In phone calls from jail, Hernandez discussed “matters directly relevant to the circumstances surrounding the murder of Odin Lloyd; viz: the defendant’s subjective belief about his criminal liability; his use of coded messages to communicate with persons outside of jail; related prior offenses; inculpatory denials of ownership of a vehicle connected with the investigation; the extent of his control over persons charged as accessories; other matters relating to his codefendants, including their whereabouts and likely criminal liability.,” Bristol (Mass.) Assistant D.A. Roger L Michel wrote in his request for tapes of the defendant’s jailhouse calls and visitor records
Everyone who watched the recent episode of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit knows they record phone calls while you’re in jail. That’s a rookie mistake Hernandez and you’re better than that. Or clearly he isn’t.
