Avielle Janelle’s father, Aaron Hernandez’s life
Aaron Josef Hernandez was an American footballer who was later convicted of murder. He was born on November 6, 1989, and died on April 19, 2017, after he committed suicide. Aaron Hernandez’s famous life was full of legal issues before his final arrest and murder conviction.
Aaron played in the National Football League for three seasons with his team, the New England Patriots, until he was arrested and convicted for the murder of Odin Lloyd.
Odin Lloyd was an upcoming professional footballer who worked as a linebacker for the Boston Bandits of the New England Football League (NEFL). Coincidentally, Odin was dating Shaneah Jenkins, the sister of Aaron’s girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins. Odin soon became friends with Aaron Hernandez after the two met at a family function.
Before Aaron murdered Odin, the latter already had a string of legal issues to his name. He once had a bar fight and was involved in a double shooting in Florida in 2007. He was not charged for the two cases.
In 2014, Aaron was acquitted of a double homicide case that happened in Boston in 2012. The one criminal act that stuck with Aaron Hernandez was that of Odin Lloyd, who everyone saw as his friend.
Aaron planned and executed Odin’s murder in 2013 (just a year after his girlfriend had a baby) over a perceived betrayal. Aaron asserted that Odin betrayed him just because he saw Odin chatting with some men he previously had an altercation with.
Aaron Hernandez was the prime suspect in Odin Lloyds murder. He was arrested nine days after Lloyd’s corpse was found and was charged with first-degree murder.
At that point, Aaron just signed a $40 million extension on his contract with his team, New England Patriots. The contract, alongside other corporate sponsorship deals he had, was terminated within hours of his charge.
