In April 2015, Aaron Hernandez, a former tight end for the New England Patriots, was found guilty of the cold-blooded murder of a semi-pro footballer and sentenced to life in prison. But there’s more to this story than the tragic death of Odin Lloyd. The story of the most disgraced player in NFL history involves strip clubs, a botched execution, a disgruntled drug dealer, a busted eardrum, ex-con bodyguards, and an unsolved double homicide in the heart of Boston that was on the verge of going cold.
