Aaron Hernandez Rented a SUV With Rhode Island Plates Linked to the Unsolved 2012 Double Homicide

By Jason Lisk

The news on Aaron Hernandez just keeps getting worse and worse. According to Adam Schefter, Boston Police have located the SUV with Rhode Island plates that was involved in a 2012 double homicide. It was knowledge of that unsolved murder that might have served as a motive for the murder of Odin Lloyd. According to this ABC report, four different sources tied Hernandez to the shootings. Surprise, surprise, Aaron Hernandez turns out to have rented the vehicle.

So that extension that Aaron Hernandez signed last year, when there was talk about being a changed man? He may have already been involved in a murder by then.

Last night and into Friday morning, police again searched Aaron Hernandez’ home, related to this second homicide investigation. In addition, police have issued an alert and wanted poster for a man named Ernest Wallace, described as armed and dangerous, for being an accessory after the fact in the murder of Odin Lloyd.

According to this CNN report, the police have impounded a silver SUV they have been trying to find for a year, and believe Hernandez to have rented it at the time of the July 2012 double homicide. Another amazing detail: those early reports that police were initially investigating Hernandez because of his connection to a rental car, almost two weeks ago? It was because a set of keys was found in Lloyd’s pocket, when his body was found, and those keys belonged to a rental car rented by – you guessed it – former NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez.
