Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is now the subject of a grand jury looking into the shooting death of two men in July 2012, reports the Boston Globe.

Hernandez is already behind bars and pleaded not guilty to the execution-style murder of 27-year old Odin Lloyd and is being held without bail at Bristol County House of Correction in Massachusetts. He is due in Attleboro District Court on Wednesday for a probable cause hearing.

The investigation of the killing of two Cape Verdean immigrants is now in the grand jury’s hands and it seems to be focused on Hernandez, the Globe reported. Investigators believe Hernandez drove Lloyd to an industrial park, then shot him because he was worried Lloyd had information about the South End double homicide and might talk.

More from the Globe:

Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu were shot early on July 16, 2012, in the South End when someone in a sport utility vehicle with Rhode Island license plates pulled up next to their car and began firing.

“The case against Hernandez appears to be strengthening,” one of the officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the case pu

Odin Lloyd.   Safiro Furtado     and    Daniel Abreu 


Are they really to be overlooked so the unoriginal among us can come up with tired punchlines?

Its ironic that he shot them in the south end, and now he's the one being probed.

They are setting him up (by allegedly his own hand) to be going away for a very long time.  Since Mass has no death penalty, this should be a life in prison - as in not eligible for parole case.  Found guilty, Hernandez will/should die a very old man in prison.

Wonder if he still thinks it was worth it - on both.

This is going to make it really hard to get him back by the post season.

I hope it turns out to be Hernandez. That would mean there is not some other criminal running around loose.
