While Aaron Hernandez, the former tight end for the New England Patriots remains jailed for the murder of his former friend Odin Lloyd last June, a new witness came forward on Oct. 11 claiming that Hernandez was the shooter in a totally different case – a double homicide shooting in Boston in 2012.
That unidentified witness claims that he and the two men shot and killed by Hernandez were waiting at a red light in their car in Boston’s South End when Hernandez started shooting at them.
The Daily News identified the two homicide victims as Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu.
The witness said that once news broke about Aaron Hernandez and Odin Lloyd, he recognized Hernandez from media pictures.
According to the unidentified witness:
“When I see his face, I just recognize his face,” said the alleged witness, who said he was shot and wounded.
“Compare his face that night to his face now. It’s that face that I remember.”
The witness stated that right before the bullets started flying, he heard someone shout, “What up, Negroes?"
Sporting News quoted the witness as saying, "Things happened so fast. I was trying to defend myself.
"They were shooting everywhere inside the car, front to back. They just came to kill. That's it.”
No charges have been filed against Hernandez in that double homicide, although investigations into his being the alleged shooter continue.
