Text messages between Hernandez and victim released
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Throughout the arraignment of Aaron Hernandez, prosecutors talked about text messages allegedly sent between the phones of Hernandez and the victim.
According to prosecutors in court, Hernandez sent a text to Odin Lloyd at 9:05 p.m. asking him to get together. About 30 minutes later, he texted a friend in Connecticut to “get his [expletive] up here.” Then at 10:23 he texted a second friend to “hurry your [expletive] up.” By 2:32 a.m. the group had made it to Dorchester, and Hernandez texted the victim, we are here.
According to prosecutors, Odin Lloyd texted his family a short time later. It said, “Do you see who I am with? Hello?” Then about 15 minutes later, he texted, “NFL, just so you know.”
Prosecutors also said while Lloyd and Hernandez were in the car together, Hernandez allegedly told Lloyd that he couldn’t trust him. He said he was mad that Lloyd had spoken to some people at a club that Hernandez had previously had trouble with.
Hernandez has been charged with first degree murder and several other gun-related crimes. He is to be held without bail and has arrived at the Bristol County House of Correction. His next court date is set for July 24.
