Investigators have released the results of a search warrant against Aaron Hernandez, and it contains a transcript of his alleged text messages with Odin Lloyd.
Officials believe Hernandez, along with two associates, picked up Lloyd at his house, drove him to an industrial park near Hernandez's home, and killed him.
Police released the specifics of a (borderline indecipherable) text message conversation that the former football star had with Lloyd on the night of his death:
Hernandez (9:05 pm): "I'm coming to grab that tonight u gon b around I need dat and we could step for a little again"
Hernandez (9:34 pm): "Waddup."
Lloyd (9:37 pm): "Aite, where."
Hernandez (9:39 pm): "idk it don't matter but imma hit u when I'm dat way like Las time if my phone dies imma hit u when I charge it which will be in a lil."
Lloyd (10:00 pm): "Aite idk anything goin on"
Hernandez (10:13 pm): "I'll figure it out ill hit u on way."
Lloyd (12:22 am): "We still on."
Lloyd kept Hernandez - who allegedly confessed to murdering Lloyd to one of his friends, per the other friend - in his phone under the name "Dis Nigga."
Investigators say Hernandez picked up Lloyd at 2:33 a.m. It's unclear what the former New England Patriot was referring to when he said "grab that."
Hernandez's girlfriend Shayanna Jenkins reportedly told police that Lloyd was a marijuana dealer before Hernandez told her to stop talking to investigators.
The AP reports that one Hernandez friend, Carlos Ortiz, told police that Hernandez admitted killing Lloyd to fellow friend Ernest Wallace.
This revelation comes in documents filed in Miramar, Fla., to justify a search of Wallace's home.
It also comes amid confirmation that police found a vehicle in Aaron Hernandez's hometown of Bristol, Conn., connected to a 2012 double homicide.
Wallace has been arrested and charged with accessory to Lloyd's murder.
Bottom line: He is innocent until proven guilty, but the Massachusetts State Police appear to be building a very strong case against the fallen football star.
