The Other Paper:
A piece of chewed bubblegum be an important piece of evidence linking New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez to the murder of Odin Lloyd in an abandoned industrial park, prosecutors claimed Wednesday.
Hernandez was charged yesterday with shooting Lloyd five times in what was described as an "orchestrated execution" at the unused park just minutes from his mansion in North Attleboro, Massachusetts.
Yesterday at a hearing in Attleboro District Court prosecutors said that on the night of the murder, Hernandez stopped at a gas station and bought gas, cigarettes and crucially a packet of blue cotton candy-flavored Bubblicious bubble gum.
Assistant District Attorney William McCauley told the court that the following morning, Hernandez returned the rental car to the hire company and exchanged it for a new vehicle.
The returned car was subsequently cleaned at the rental company where police went through the dumpster and discovered a bullet shell casing next to which was a chewed piece of blue cotton candy Bubblicious bubble gum.
The casing, for a .45 caliber handgun, is understood to match those found at the scene of the crime.
McCauley said that surveillance video from Hernandez's own home security cameras show two friends arriving at his $1.3 million mansion with the three of them leaving at approximately 1:12 a.m., with Hernandez at the wheel.
After stopping at the gas station, Hernandez is said to have driven to nearby Dorchester where he picked up Lloyd.
Apparently, Lloyd had misgivings about the meeting and sent text messages to his family.
"Did you see who I am with?" he asked. Then he responded, cryptically, "NFL," the prosecutor said.
Mobile phone records show that the last time Lloyd used his phone was to text his sister at around 3:23am.
He added the foreboding line, "Just so you know."
At the moment the text was sent, Hernandez's car was caught on camera going down a gravel road to the industrial area where Lloyd's body was found before returning four minutes later, at 3:27 a.m.

Aaron Hernandez is too damn sexy to be charged with anything.
People have forgotten about Alexander Bradley. He is the man who says he was shot in the face by Aaron Hernandez after a night out at the strip club.
One again, it is innocent until proven guilty, but maybe Hernandez was so sloppy with leaving evidence because he had shot people for years and got away with it. Bradley’s lawyer believes when Hernandez allegedly shot Bradley, it...
A.B. As you can see below, Aaron Hernandez’s NFL career stats are no longer listed on NFL.com.

Why the NFL would remove (if done...

My names Aaron Hernandez and I’m here to say,
I’ve really run a foul of the Patriot way!
