As a gifted young football athlete from Bristol, Connecticut, Aaron Hernandez had capitalized rapidly on his promise, playing for a top tier college program before being drafted into the National Football League at the age of 20. But in 2013, fresh off of a newly inked five-year, $40 million contract with the New England Patriots, Hernandez would become a household name for the most infamous murder case involving an American athlete since OJ Simpson. Hernandez’s trials for the brutal killing of Odin Lloyd and two Boston-area men yielded a Pandora’s box of secrets: a tumultuous and often abusive upbringing, a growing fascination with gang life, and other discoveries that painted a maelstrom of motivations behind his violent behavior.

I know nothing about all of that so that will be a good watch.

EDIT: DENG the 15th? Nice, I thought it was going to be a long way out.

Here's a guy that threw it all away just to act 'gangsta'...he could have easily walked away from every negative influence.

I get it that the dude was sexually abused as a kid, and he had developed stage 3 CTE...but shit. He had everything.

I watched the first 2 part documentary on Hernandez when it came out, and the only thing that shocked me is how foolishly he handled things the night of Odin Lloyds murder. He didn't even clear the recordings on his own home camera system, which is really what allowed the prosecution to build the timeline and case. Hell, there were keys to a car rented by Hernandez in Odin Lloyd's jacket when they found the body. The CTE makes sense given how ridiculous and poorly thought out the whole thing was.

$40m contract and a baby daughter...and he threw it all away to kill his future brother in law...what the fuck

Made it an hour in last night. I'm liking it. Dude had everything, I mostly feel horrible for the original victim and his family.

About an episode and a half in. Crazy how much he got away with for so long. Really seems like his dad passing away was an immediate turning point.

Never mind the .45 spent shells in the rental car.

It was almost like he wanted to get caught. He destroyed some evidence, but left blatant other stuff he knew they would find.

Very good watch. I give the documentary credit for at least exploring his side and trying to shed light on why he did what he did. Less of excuse making and more trying to build the case of what was going on in his head throughout his life.

The crazy thing is, if he hired Jose Baez for the Odin Lloyd case, he might have actually gotten off. That dude is something else.

Idk about that. The double murder all they had on him was the car, I don’t think any proof he was the shooter. Plus the testimony said he was enraged when he left the club, but camera footage shows him laughing and smiling, making the witness not credible.

The other murder it was a lot more difficult given all the evidence

The evidence just shows that he was there. There isn't a real motive. Baez probably would have had the same strategy as "it was the other guys that shot him." It's plausible.

Issue was the rental car was registered to him, the gun was registered to him, and then after he was seen walking around his house holding a gun shaped item. And then told his fiancé where it was possibly stashed to get rid of it. It was just all so weird.

Also especially weird he didn’t delete any of those recordings and let them find them. Again. I think he wanted to get caught

The wife and I binged it all Friday night, it was great! I knew some of the story when it happened, but never realized there were two trials. I remembered he was accused of murdering someone, but then had it mixed up and thought he got off. No idea he was killin people, and shooting people like a gang banger. Also never knew anything about his sexuality at all.

It was a fucked up story, and a good show for sure.

I don't know that not deleting video footage really was his way of wanting to get caught. He just wasn't smart enough to cover his tracks. Didn't he bring his mobile phone with him to the murder?

They never argued that he wasn't present at the other shooting either. All he had to do was make it reasonable to seem like the other guys were the actual shooters. At least get a lesser than Murder 1 and life in prison. Not saying he did or didn't do it, that's something that only the people involved will know. Just saying, after watching that 2nd trial, not getting life in prison was definitely a possibility for the 1st with that same lawyer.

Yup, the defense admitted that he was present at the murder. But prosecutors couldn't prove he was the trigger man...which he might not have been...but likely was I'm sure.

Definitely a good series. I bet he'd have gotten off as an accessory if Baez was his attorney in the first one. Baez would have made sure his home video system was fully erased as soon as he was first questioned, and that would have been it for the prosecution.

Wow so many layers to his life. I felt sorry for everyone on both sides. I wonder how much getting high everyday effected his judgement.
