Report: Hernandez now linked to Florida shootings
George Colli, an investigative reporter for WVIT in Connecticut, dropped this Aaron Hernandez trial-related bombshell on Twitter early this afternoon:
Sources: police are investigating a connection between Aaron #Hernandez and "more than one" shooting in FL going back to his freshman year— George Colli (@GeorgeColli) July 29, 2013
Sources: more charges could be filed out of FL against Aaron #Hernandez in coming days— George Colli (@GeorgeColli) July 29, 2013
Though he's only been charged in the death of Odin Lloyd, Hernandez has also been linked to the drive-by double murder of two Boston area men, Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu, in 2012. Last week, the Boston Globe reported local prosecutors have only just begun working to prove that Hernandez should also be charged in the deaths of the two.
The Florida shootings Colli references would be in addition to the Lloyd case and the Furtado-Abreu case. Presumably, they would have occurred between 2007 and 2009, when Hernandez starred for the University of Florida.
It appears exceedingly unlikely Hernandez will ever play another down in the NFL, let alone set foot in public as a free man
