Defense drops bombshell, says Hernandez witnessed the murder
As the defense and prosecution make their final arguments in the trial of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, the defense made a shocking admission. Aaron Hernandez was a the crime scene and actually witnessed the murder.
James Sultan, one of Hernandez’s attorneys, told the jury that Hernandez witnessed the murder of Odin Lloyd. Sultan implied that the trigger was pulled by either Ernest Wallace or Carlos Ortiz — the two other men who were allegedly at the scene the night Lloyd was killed.
Hernandez’s attorneys understood that there was too much evidence placing Hernandez at the scene of the crime to argue that he had absolutely nothing to do with Lloyd’s murder. Sultan basically admitted that Hernandez could have been convicted of being an accessory, but the former Patriots star is not being charged with that.
Is this a last ditch effort, a hail mary if you will, to pin the murder on Hernandez's associates and save himself from a murder conviction? Or is it the truth, was Hernandez just in the wrong place at the wrong time and couldn't stop his friend from being murdered?
We may never know the truth. Only three people will ever know and its become very clear that none of those three want to disclose what exactly happened that night. And since they won't, a jury will be tasked with deciding what happened. Will they believe Hernandez was an innocent bystander? Has the prosecution made a strong enough case, beyond a reasonable doubt that Hernandez pulled the trigger?
With the defense and prosecution both wrapping up their cases, we will soon find out.
Me? well i thought you'd never ask. well i'm around 25 years old, give or take, i mean the only way to tell for sure is to cut me open and count my rings but for now i'm content to say i'm 25. i'm freakin funny, and if you disagree with me i will stab you in the jaw. i love to just chill with my friends, they are awesome, they laugh at my jokes, sure, it took some jaw stabbing but hey its not always easy. i haven't quite mastered the whole think before you speak program, apparently, if you start a sentence with "now don't take this the wrong way" people still take it the wrong way. i know, i know, it doesn't make any sense to me either, but it happens. twice while i was fishing, i've seen beavers with paws the size of frying pans that could rip a mans face right off! oh and i hate bears, its just terrible what happened to those two hikers from the czech republic. terrible. i really like to go fourwheeling, i like to work on cars but i'm way to lazy to actually do it. i cant wait to go snowboarding this winter, i'm pretty good, steve once said i looked like a train wreck, he's borderline pro, so that really made my day. oh and once i had a dream.
