Now, prosecutors say the former NFL tight end was the shooter in the July 16, 2012, slayings of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado, who were killed in a drive-by shooting after leaving a popular Boston nightclub.
Mr. Abreu and Mr. Furtado were ambushed and executed as they drove home, said Dan Conley, the Suffolk County district attorney. The Boston Globe first reported the indictment Thursday.
For us, this case was not about Aaron Hernandez. This case was about two victims, who were stalked, ambushed, and senselessly murdered on the streets of the city they called home, Conley said.

o/~ Are you ready for the thugball?! o/~
he’s a...”tight end”? And he’s going to (gulp) prison?
He better get out there and kiss another guy pronto if he doesn’t want to get the gurney-death penalty treatment.
He’s already there for another murder he’s charged with.
Question for Roger Goodell:
If a TWEET gets you a fine and sensitivity training what kind of punishment does letting a SERIAL Killer play for your team get you?
He also threatened to shoot and kill a prison guard while in there besides beating up another inmate. This is a guy who just wants to spend the rest of life in prison, so who are we to deny him?
It’s the thought crime that counts, don’t you know? Get with the program!
What did Urban know and when did he know it?
Very early, he knew Hernandez was in a gang.
Know that my distaste for him is about him alone, not your Gators dfw. I think it’s funny that Franklin is handing him his ass on a platter in recruiting. The sycophants in Columbus don’t know what’s coming down the road in a couple of years.
that is so true, hilarious, and disgusting all in one...
someone had to say it!
Hernandez in jail for life and the Bruins knocked out of the playoffs
It’s a good day
not in Massachusetts... no death penalty... but anyway, wth is wrong with this guy?!! he is a serial killer... he just kills people... unbelievable!
yes... and i don’t think that is even Jesus’ face... doesn’t look like most renditions of Jesus... kind of looks like a cholo Jesus... the expression...
It’s not nearly as bad as being a homophobe.
3 murders in 2 incidents isn’t a serial killer. Psycho maybe, not serial killer. And given when they cut him (the minute he got indicted) they did take a pretty severe cap hit. The league doesn’t generally punish a team for bad picks, they figure the system does it for them.
Impact on NFL and presumption of ignorance
The charging of Hernandez for two separate murders, occurring nearly a year apart, raises serious questions about how Hernandez could live a double life of a triple-murderer and NFL player. How could his teammates and coaches have no idea? Were suspicions raised at any point, including by the league or players’ association? The fact that Hernandez kept a “flop house” in Franklin, Mass., which was allegedly visited by Patriots players, reflects even worse on their apparent ignorance.
Rewind: That Super Creepy Interview with Aaron Hernandez, 11 Days After Double Murder
Its July 27, 2012, the first day of Patriots training camp, and Aaron Hernandez is all giggles with a media throng lapping up all the yuks about the former New England tight ends summer vacation. Rob Gronkowski had just finished off a wild offseason during which Hernandezs fellow tight end worked off his teams Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants during what seemed like a five-month-long party, with the omnipresent paparazzi at every turn, and most every Boston media member taking pleasure in the ability to cover the cartoonish events.
Aaron, was your summer as crazy as Gronks?
Um, more private, Hernandez said to the delight of the crowd surrounding him. But I still had some fun.
Like what? Can you give us some examples of the fun you had?
Thats still private but Hernandez said to more laughter.
Eleven days earlier, Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado were the victims of a drive-by shooting in Bostons South End, murders for which Hernandez was indicted by a grand jury on charges related to them on Wednesday.
Exactly one month later, the Patriots would sign Hernandez to a new five-year deal. Hed play one season under it.
Thats three deaths now officially attributed to Hernandez, who was potential trouble since Day One, even if we were led to believe it was only some silly marijuana that led him to fall in the draft. Hernandezs rap sheet exploded like a piñata in the wake of the Lloyd accusations. The Patriots didnt do any of that homework?
Maybe that research was just private like Hernandezs summer, which turned out to be quite the eventful offseason after all. Nobody is laughing anymore.
I doubt even Ray Lewis’s lawyer can get him out of this.
He is a very, very bad man.
That’s exactly what he is. He’s so narcissistic that any affront to him he sees as the ultimate crime worthy of death. He threatened to kill a teammate on the Pats once because he gave him an aloof answer to something, even if you can believe it threatened to shoot and kill a guard while in prison because the guard saw him stealing food. “WHAT? I cannot have extra food? But I am GOD! I therefore sentence you to death!” That’s how he thinks. Then the tattoo “hate me now”...That’s a message to all the people he assumes are jealous of him because he’s just so great. The Democrats would absolutely love this guy.
He deserves to be incarcerated for the rest of his life, and only because we don’t have the death penalty here in MA.
The theory is that the 3rd and most recent murder was due to the victim being aware of the previous deaths.
