Witness Says Hernandez

ADMITTED Shooting Lloyd

7/9/2013 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0626-aaron-hernandez-tmzEx-New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez CONFESSED that he fired the shots that killed Odin Lloyd ... this according to a police document that cites a witness ... who cites another witness.

OK, so it's a confession that's 3 degrees removed from Aaron Hernandez ... but cops in Miramar, Florida believed the tip was good enough to bring to a judge in an effort to get a search warrant connected with the investigation.

First, some background -- prosecutors in the murder case believe Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace were with Hernandez when Lloyd was murdered.  Both Ortiz and Wallace are currently in custody.

Now, according to documents filed by the Miramar Police Dept., Ortiz told investigators ... that Wallace, told him ... that Hernandez told him that he shot Lloyd.

You follow that?

It's double hearsay, to say the least ... but with life sentences on the line, it might not be the last time these guys (allegedly) point the finger at each other.

For his part, Hernandez insists he's not guilty.

If they were both with him that night then why in the hell would he need to tell them he shot Lloyd? Something sounds fishy.

Religion says that God himself hates the liars thieves murderers adulterers and will kick them out of his Kingdom in Heaven. It also says the more good deeds that you do the more averted one is to heaven.

OK, Wallace & Ortiz were in the car w/Hernandez & the dead guy. Ortiz says Wallace, Hernandez & the dead guy got out & only Wallace & Hernandez got back in. If Ortiz is telling the truth, why would Hernandez tell Wallace that he, Hernandez, shot Lloyd?
If only Wallace & Hernandez got back in the car, & Wallace knew he didn't shoot Lloyd, that means Hernandez did the shooting. I mean Lloyd didn't shoot himself. Hernandez isn't gonna tell Wallace he shot Lloyd..
That's why prosecutors aren't saying WHO shot Lloyd. It's a little too convenient that Ortiz says he didn't even get out of the car when Lloyd was shot--BUT Ortiz is on camera HOLDING a gun when they get back to Hernandez' house SEVEN minutes after Lloyd's last text to his sister?

If Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace were with Hernandez when Lloyd was murdered. Wouldn't they have seen Hernandez murder Lloyd with their own eyes? Therefore making this he told me he did it bit unnecessary.

On June 26, 2013, Hernandez was taken from his home in handcuffs and into police custody.[40] The Patriots released Hernandez about 90 minutes later, before officially knowing the charges against Hernandez.[

Hernandez was born in Bristol, Connecticut[3] to Dennis Hernandez, who was of Puerto Rican descent, and Terri Hernandez, who is of Italian and Irish descent.


So that is his nationality. My theory is that since he was such a football star in high school, he didn't have time to be in a gang. Then as far as the Patriot's, why would they be so harsh on a star player?

I don't think Aaron being so successful at football points to him being retarded. Some people are just simple minded and don't consider all of the angles of things. He did graduate from college also. The crime scenario here is a little too stupid and reckless to be believed.

It reminds me of the kind of scenario used against the Tsarnaev brothers. They were accused of even humanly impossible acts, They said they were lobbing pressure cooker bombs out of a moving stolen car, etc.

When I look at Otriz and the other suspect here, they look kind of rough. Aaron does not have that look.
