Former NFL Star Aaron Hernandez Indicted In ’12 Double Murder, Bringing Alleged Body Count To 3
Aaron Hernandez has formally been accused in the murders of two more people, bringing the alleged body count linked to the former New England Patriots tight end to three, RadarOnline.com reports.
A Suffolk County Grand Jury decided to indict the Pro Bowler-turned-accused murderer in the July 16, 2012 killings of Cape Verde natives Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado, nearly a full year after the hulking pass-catcher was indicted in the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-pro football player.
The car-to-car shooting of the Cape Verdean men stemmed from a skirmish at a Boston’s Cure Lounge nightclub, and Hernandez’s name was bandied as a potential suspect soon after the Lloyd slaying.
Families for both men have filed wrongful death suits against the one time University of Florida All-American.
Hernandez, who was inked to a $40 million, five-year deal by the Pats a month after the alleged killing of the two men, was unceremoniously cut by the Pats two hours after his arrest last year.

The impact of the incident was cited as a possible reason as to why the Philadelphia Eagles this year released star wide receiver DeShaun Jackson, who has purported ties to the Los Angeles gangbanger scene.
