BOSTON – Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots tight end, continued to sit in prison Friday as further details and evidence related to the murder of Odin Lloyd emerged.
Authorities seized the silver Chrysler 300 with Rhode Island license plates that prosecutors were searching for in the investigation into the murder, according to the Boston Globe. It was found approximately one mile from the residence of Carlos Ortiz, the second man arrested in the case.
Interested bystanders and media members crowd around the entrance to the Fall River Justice Center after a bail hearing for Aaron Hernandez.
Prosecutors in Massachusetts maintained that Hernandez rented the vehicle the day after Lloyd was shot in order to allow his two alleged accomplices to flee the Commonwealth.
Carlos Ortiz has also been arrested as police continue to investigate the murder of Odin Lloyd.
Hernandez pleaded not guilty to murder and five firearm charges on Wednesday after being arrested at his home in North Attleborough. Boston Police returned to his home Thursday as they investigated Hernandez’s possible role in a double murder in Boston’s South End.
