Aaron Hernandez: Gay 'lover' claims NFL star murdered four people, last victim being Odin Lloyd lookalike
In Reelz's docuseries 'Aaron Hernandez’s Killing Fields', Kyle Kennedy, a convicted felon serving time in the same jail as Hernandez, said the latter always joked about dropping four bodies
Although Aaron Hernandez was only indicted for three murders, his close confidante in prison and alleged lover at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center, Massachusetts, claimed that the late NFL tight end confessed to him that he was involved in four murders.
In 2013, Hernandez was charged for the murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional player who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancée. Hernandez was found guilty of first-degree murder in 2015 and sentenced to serve life in prison without the possibility of parole. While on trial for Lloyd's murder, he was also indicted for the 2012 double homicide of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, but was acquitted after a 2017 trial.
Kyle Kennedy, a convicted felon serving time in the same jail as Hernandez, opened up about his conversations with the former New England Patriots player in Reelz's docuseries 'Aaron Hernandez’s Killing Fields'. He said that Hernandez always joked about being responsible for dropping four bodies. When pressed about possible details about the fourth murder, Kyle said that his friend never gave him a name, nor did he divulge any other information about the same.
It raised the question of whether Hernandez killed another man believing he was Lloyd. The series tries to find an answer to this question by letting their team of investigators go through Boston's unsolved murder files, which leads them to a gunshot victim named Jordan Miller.
"Jordan Miller had been killed inside his home in Boston. Nine shots had been fired from the street through his first-floor bedroom window," investigative journalist Michelle Sigona said.
Jordan's aunt, Tara Davis, said in the docuseries that three individuals were spotted on a CCTV camera near the house running from the scene and that the killing "seemed personal". "Just hope that at some point there's resolution, closure in that whoever did this to him is brought to justice," she said.
The police never caught anyone involved in Jordan's murder and nor did they try to match the bullets that killed him with that used on Lloyd.
New York police veteran detective Bo Dietl weighed in on the findings of the investigative team, saying that a drug dealer — who also spoke up earlier in the docuseries — said that he witnessed Hernandez talking to someone on the phone about the fact that they needed to "take care" of Lloyd on the same night — June 6, 2013 — as Jordan was killed.
It also could not have been a coincidence that he met Hernandez at the Oaklawn Cemetary, which was less than a mile away from Jordan's home.
Jordan also looked similar to Lloyd, which might have let Hernandez and his gang mistake him for the latter. No other unsolved murders were found by the investigators at the time around the area.
