His legal team will have a field day with any "confession" that is three degrees from Hernandez himself, especially if no one (on record) saw him fire the gun.

But police in Miramar, Fla., still believed the tip was good enough to bring to a judge in an effort to get a search warrant connected with the investigation.

To bring you up to speed, prosecutors in the murder case believe Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace were with Hernandez when Lloyd was murdered.

Ortiz and Wallace are currently in custody.

Hernandez has since been charged with the premeditated murder of Odin Lloyd.

"If this stuff is true, then I've been duped and our whole organization has been duped," Kraft told ESPN of the player he drafted out of Florida in 2010.

“Here we have a guy who, man, it looks like had the world by the tail. He said to me he wanted to be a role model to the Hispanic community," Kraft said.

Aaron Hernandez's accommodations in jail as he awaits trial for murder are the subject of great concern, the American Civil Liberties Union believes.

In a recent blog post, the ACLU laments the damage being done to Hernandez as he remains in protective custody, also known as solitary confinement.

The ACLU argues that in reality, this can do more damage than good, and that many countries "recognize solitary confinement as a form of torture."

"Regardless of what you think of Aaron Hernandez, it's important to take a minute and remember he has not yet been convicted," ACLU.org wrote.

"In the eyes of the law, he is innocent until proven guilty. But, awaiting trial, he is locked alone in a small room with little or no human interaction for over 20 hours a day."

Alexander Bradley, the man who claims that Aaron Hernandez shot him in the face earlier this year, has been ordered to appear before a grand jury.

Bradley has been ordered by a judge in Massachusetts to testify before a grand jury later this month; it's unclear if police are trying establish any link.

He is scheduled to appear July 17. Bradley had been actively fighting the interstate subpoena, claiming that he required medical treatment in Florida.

After Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder for the execution-style shooting of Odin Lloyd, more and more information has come out.

The latest revelation? A $1,200/month apartment he leased in Franklin, Mass., with boxes of ammunition and other items of interest inside.

Police found out about it from Carlos Ortiz, one of Hernandez’s friends, who said he was with the athlete the night he allegedly made plans to shoot Lloyd.

Articles of clothing recovered from the apartment are similar to what Hernandez had worn the night of the crime, June 17, according to law enforcement.

Hernandez and Jenkins got into an argument that sent police racing to his rental home outside of L.A. after a neighbor reported a domestic disturbance.

When police arrived, Jenkins said she was fine and didn't want to press charges against Hernandez, then an all-star tight end for the New England Patriots.

Police left without making an arrest, even though they had come there several other times after Hermosa Beach, Calif., neighbors made noise complaints.

Hernandez, sources say, "acted like an a$$hole" when cops responded.

Former Patriots star and accused murderer Aaron Hernandez has been moved into solitary confinement for his own safety, according to prison officials.

The fear is basic and obvious: That he has a target on his back (not #81).

Bristol County Sheriff Tom Hodgson said Aaron has been moved from the medical ward at Bristol County Jail to a "Class 2 Unit," where he is isolated.

"The reason for this move is simply to protect him," he says. "We wouldn't want some inmate trying to get any notoriety by attempting to harm Aaron Hernandez."

Police are confident that Aaron Hernandez had the means and opportunity to kill Odin Lloyd, and believe they have sufficient evidence of each.

Motive, however, has been a mystery throughout the investigation of the former NFL star, though a second case has given police a new angle.

Officials think Lloyd may have had information about Hernandez that the tight end felt would destroy his relationship with his fiancee and the Patriots.

There are several operating theories, but a prevailing one is that Lloyd "mouthed off" to Hernandez about "secrets" Aaron had told him in the past.

Those secrets, police believe, concern Aaron's involvement in drugs and his involvement in several violent incidents - possibly two other murders.

He was a fun-loving teenager at Bristol Central High School, where he followed in the footsteps of his older brother, D.J., a tight end at the University of Connecticut.

Some recall him struggling with the death of his father, Dennis, in 2006, but staying determined to become a pro athlete, spending hours working out before and after school.

As Bristol police assist Massachusetts investigators, arresting one local man as a fugitive from justice, the community is left to ponder the fall of the hometown hero.
