NFL Nation: Odin Lloyd

Witness told Hernandez committed murder

July, 9, 2013

Carlos Ortiz, one of the alleged accomplices in the Aaron Hernandez case, says he was told that Hernandez said he killed Odin Lloyd.

According to court documents released Tuesday, Ortiz told police that Ernest Wallace, a second alleged accomplice, told him the day after the shooting that Hernandez admitted to killing Lloyd.

After Lloyd was shot near Hernandez's home in North Attleborough, Mass., Ortiz and Wallace returned to Bristol, Conn. That is where, according to court records made public in Florida today, Ortiz told police that Wallace said Hernandez shot Lloyd.

The documents were drawn up to justify a search of Wallace's home in Miramar, Fla., where Wallace was arrested about 10 days ago.

Also Tuesday, warrants obtained to search Hernandez's home were unsealed, showing an uncooperative Hernandez slamming his door and locking it when officers told him they were investigating a death. The documents show surveillance video of Hernandez in his home shortly after Lloyd was killed, with what appears to be a gun in his hands.

Video: Hernandez denied bail

A judge denied Aaron Hernandez's request for bail Thursday, one day after the former New England Patriots tight end was charged with murder.

Hernandez was ordered held without bail after being charged Wednesday with first-degree murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd along with five weapons-related counts.

Hernandez appeared Thursday in Bristol County Superior Court in Fall River, Mass., with his attorneys, James Sultan and Michael Fee.

Although Sultan argued that Hernandez is not a flight risk, Judge Renee Dupuis called the prosecution's case "circumstantial but very, very strong."

"The facts, as I understand it, suggest that basically a cold-blooded person killed another person because that person disrespected him," Dupuis said.
