Cops:

Witness Says Hernandez

ADMITTED Shooting Lloyd

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.

It was OJ. He snuck out of prison and got back in before anyone found out. It is just like before.

So "cops in Miramar, Florida" are giving their witnesses name and testimonies to tabloid rags like tmz? Interesting police/judiciary ethics or lack of...

I can't judge the guy but it does look like he is guilty but now the cops seem to be making **** up to make their case. Where are the pictures of him in jail? I know you cops will leak those any day now.

All I'm going to say is that this guy is an idiot. He really screwed up his chance for a good career. Too bad so sad i guess.

If Ortiz was one of the men spotted on surveillance cameras in the car with Wallace, Hernandez and the victim, Odin Lloyd, why would be say Wallace told him Hernandez pulled the trigger? Wouldn't Ortiz have seen it all go down? Did he happen to turn his back right at that terrible moment? Sounds strange to me.

Leave Aaron alone!! Talking about some hearsay mess. My neighbor told me, that his neighbor told him, whose neighbor told him, that the neighbor down the street told him that his neighbor's neighbor told him.........That's all it takes for a caucasian judge to persecute somebody for a crime they didn't commit.

He always seems to have a smile on his face and a wistful look in his eyes. He doesn't appear to have the demeanor of a stone cold killer. Then the suspects are ratting him out. Well they get immunity for telling on someone else, so there is a motive for that right there. If they are just gang members, what would they even care?


Maybe they are mad that Aaron wouldn't join a gang. Who really knows? People are getting framed left and right any more.
