Patriots allegedly knew about Hernandez's trouble
FOXBORO, Mass. (WHDH) -- The New England Patriots are not commenting on a new Rolling Stone article that says coach Bill Belichick knew Hernandez was in trouble and advised him to lay low.
The article in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone also claiming former Patriots star Aaron Hernandez was into PCP and would drive around with thug friends, armed to the teeth, and paranoid he was being set up.
“It's disappointing but his behavior is horrible, it's horrendous,” patriots fan Chris Reich said.
“It's too bad but society creates these people,” Al Reich said.
The article claims Hernandez was "a heavy user of angel dust" and "became so paranoid over the last year he carried a gun wherever he went."
Hernandez is awaiting trial for the execution style murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi pro player he had been hanging out with.
The magazine went on to report Hernandez "surrounded himself with a cohort of gangsters" and "cut himself off from family and teammates."
“Nobody can second guess what coaches and players saw in locker room sometimes people live secret lives away from work,” Patriots fan Lee Mollison said.
Hernandez was afraid he would be murdered, according Paul Solotaroff, to the contributing editor who wrote the article.
“Hernandez was absolutely paranoid, to the point I hear, of delusional,” Solotaroff said.
He goes on to say that the team is partly to blame for Hernandez’s troubles.
“They certainly would have known a hell of a lot more if they hadn’t canned the guy who used to do their security. They had this very smart guy, an ex state trooper,” Solotaroff said. “According to my sources Belichick was informed of the direness of Hernandez’s situation as far back as the spring.”
