Watched others truly sad how he went down the wrong road after the death of his father. Can't remember if they found brain damage from his scans though.

I would not doubt that but from the stuff I saw and read I also would not be surprised if he would fall into somediagnosis catagory like paranoid schizophrenia.

Exactly what I was thinking while watching it bc they kept talking about this other side of him and how he would get really paranoid about certain things

It's really not edited that well. It's really all over the place. Great if you haven't heard any of it.


It's wild that Hernandez was one good lawyer away with from being a free man from 3 incredibly sloopy murders. Man... That's wild.
Meh I thought it was good but yeah you're right imagine if he had the guy who got him off of the Boston killings but then again their witness wasnt great you sent a text telling them you didnt even knw who shot you implying more ppl were there

I didn't follow the trial in real time but I just finished watching the NBC special (now on Hulu) and I was glued to the screen. It played like a thriller movie. I didn't realize they never found a weapon or presented a motive. Not so much as a speculative motive. Nothing. So I don't understand how a jury found him guilty of pulling the trigger. There didn't appear to be any way for them to know which of the 3 guys actually shot Odin Lloyd.

I started watching the Netflix special last night but after seeing the one on Hulu, it pales in comparison. Big time. But the story in general is incredibly captivating. Especially the speculations as to why he ultimately killed himself.

They just replayed a doc done in 2018 on Oxygen. They interviewed Brandon Spikes and his wife, Aaron's fiance Shayanna Jenkins who was also his HS girlfriend (the one who was videod removing the trash bag from the house), his college girlfriend Alyssa Anderson, former defense attorneys Jose Baez and George Leontire (who, as a gay man himself, has said that Aaron was gay and fought vehemently against any testimony being used in court that Aaron was gay), the sheriff from Bristol County where Aaron was incarcerated during his trial, numerous journalists who covered various of the stories, etc.

I haven't seen the Netflix one but I'm not sure how much else it could have included (I'm guessing it's a little more focused on the angle of Aaron being gay and doesn't seem to have any new interviews but does use conversations recorded while he was in prison). Baez says that Aaron was basically railroaded. But I was most struck by his fiance talking about feeling let down by her sister Shaneah's testimony that she "took the side of the prosecution". Her sister whose boyfriend was Odin Lloyd, the man who was murdered. Aaron's fiance couldn't believe her sister didn't support Aaron, as someone both had known since high school, over her own boyfriend. Again, the one who was murdered allegedly by Aaron. Well, gee, sorry, sister.

I dunno, even knowing more now, I don't feel I have any particular insight into Aaron's head. He kept some pretty strange hours with some pretty rough people and was, at the very least, with the wrong people at the wrong time in the wrong place. At what point do you go, Oh, having CTE means that if you commit a crime, you shouldn't be held responsible. It might be a fact, but I don't think it's an explanation. I don't think Aaron seems evil, but he does seem like a shell of a man who happened to reside in a hella talented football player.

Well I didnt knw a lot of the stuff they talked about in it so it was all new to me. Like his brother saying he was sexually abused and how Aaron wondered if that's why he was gay or at least bi

Yea it really is all over the place. With the homosexuality and all that. What’s that got to do with anything?? Who cares who this dude was screwing
I think they were partly trying to use it as if that's why he was so angry on the inside and trying his hardest to be all gangsta
