Hernandez Seen with a Gun after Shooting

The case against Aaron Hernandez keeps getting stronger and stronger as each day passes.

New evidence has been presented that shows him on his own surveillance equipment with what appears to be a gun.

According to ABC News, prosecutors said they have found a spent .45 caliber shell casing in a car rented by the former New England Patriots star that matched the five bullets found in the body of murder victim Odin Lloyd.

Massachusetts investigators released this statement in part explaining what they found. 

"Interior surveillance footage shows Aaron Hernandez pass through the living room area of the residence while holding an item, identified by investigators being consistent with a firearm," according to a search warrant affidavit released by the Attleboro District Court today.

"Aaron Hernandez is observed on the surveillance video moving the item believed to be a firearm between his hands as he passes through the living room."

Hernandez allegedly entered the crime scene around 3:23am when, according to witnesses, gunshots were heard around that time. Ten minutes later, Hernandez was seen on video back at home with what looked like a gun in tote. This information is specifically about the first murder charges against Hernandez. 

On top of this, Enterprise Rent-a-Car reported a bullet found in the damaged Nissan Altima that Hernandez returned. Further evidence documentation stated that the tires of the Nissan had left skid marks at the scene of the crime.

This could be just a huge coincidence, and Hernandez is presumed innocent until proven guilty. But as of now, the prosecutors keep finding more and more evidence that puts the former tight end in a whole world of trouble.  

Investigators are continuing to look into whether or not Hernandez was involved in a double-homicide that took place last summer, which may have led to the death of Odin Lloyd.

Attorney Ed Garland managed to help Ray Lewis in his alleged murder trial in 2000, but he definitely has his hands full this time with the former Pats standout.

And look at that last phrase for a moment. What a stupid waste of talent and opportunity!
