A handful of text messages were presented as key pieces of evidence against Aaron Hernandez at his arraignment yesterday.
According to the prosecution’s story, 27-year-old Odin Lloyd was picked up from his house at 2:30 a.m., driven to a remote part of an industrial park, and murdered by Aaron Hernandez and two associates at around 3:30 a.m.
Minutes before the alleged murder took place, Lloyd had this ominous text message conversation with his sister:
Odin Lloyd (3:07 a.m.): “Did you see who I am with?”
Odin Lloyd (3:11 a.m.): “Hello?”
Sister (3:19 a.m.): “My was phone dead. Who?”
Odin Lloyd (3:22 a.m.): “NFL.”
Odin Lloyd (3:23 a.m.): “Just so you know.”
Lloyd’s sister saw him leave the house with Hernandez and two other men at 2:30 a.m., the prosecution says.
The prosecution says Lloyd was murdered between 3:23 and 3:27, and that workers in a nearby plant heard gunshots.
He was 27.
