The family of Odin Lloyd has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, according to the Associated Press.

Hernandez, 24, is awaiting trial for the alleged killing of the 27-year-old Lloyd in June. Lloyd, a semi-pro football player, was dating the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend.

The lawsuit was filed this week in New Bedford, Mass., and seeks unspecified damages. It asks for a hold to be put on any future payment of the $3 million that Hernandez is still owed by the Patriots, as well as a real estate attachment of up to $5 million.

Yeah, go ahead parents, let your kids listen to gangsta rap and live that lifestyle. I have seen too many times the end result. Death at the hands of a real gangsta when your kid was only playing the part. Hernandez deserves EVERY BIT OF PUNISHMENT he gets, including confinement as well as monetary losses! This kid Odin was hanging out with the wrong people, so he is partly to blame, but what else can you expect when someone wants to be a "thug" and hang out with "thugs" and does not have the knowledge to understand it is DANGEROUS and STUPID!

If my child wants to listen to music, that is fine. I would think he or she would be smart enough to develop their "own" identity instead of trying to become something like a "thug or gangsta". I would never allow them to look the part, hang out with those type of people, or even casually associate with anyone living this lifestyle as it usually leads to either prison or death. 

This is not a white, black, or Hispanic thing. This is a culture that is born from a style of music that glorifies crime, abuse of women, disrespect for any kind of authority, and it glorifies drug use. How does a "rapper" sleep at night knowing he is promoting this violence from the safety of his mansion and body guards? Absolutely shameful what some people will do for money, but this is the equivalent of selling your soul to the devil.

Parents have to look long and hard in the mirror when they get back from the morgue or jail and their "little innocent lamb" is either dead or facing a long sentence for their actions. You let the kid listen to that crap, you let them dress and live that look and lifestyle, so do not tell me "He was a good person" when he is on the news as either the victim or the one who pulled the trigger.

Money and fame can net you 1 free murder in this country.  I assume hes wealthy enough to claim Affluenza.

What I don't get is the family just lost their son and all they are concerned about is a possible $5 million payout for wrongful death. Sorry but, no amount of Money would ever make up for the loss of one of my children.

Hopefully he will be found innocent. Who knows how long Gronkowski will be out next season? Hernandez will be well rested and anxious to get back on the field and with his teamates.

LEAVE THE POOR GUY ALONE!!! Damn, he has enough to deal with the hearing. Look at all he did for the Pats. Cut the guys some slack!

Might wanna wait till the criminal trial finishes first....


Another Hernandez associate died recently. That's 3 since Hernandez was arrested. At this rate, there will be no one at all who can testify against him for anything he's ever done. From murdering a man (allegedly) to spitting on the sidewalk.

On the flip-side if Hernandez is guilty you can follow the pattern of bad behavior back a few years. While he was at UF he got away with a lot of BS. Urban gave Hernandez a continuous get out of jail free card. It just goes to show you that when you do not hold the people accountable for their actions how it can and will escalate into worse things happening. Ray Lewis while he was at Miami. Michael Irving also at Miami and now Jameis Winston. These players would benefit more having integrity taught to them at an earlier age so it can apply to their actions as they grow older.

@CTB533 So where in the article did you read that all Odin's family is concerned about is a possible $5 million? 

Where did you read that they think by getting any money that would make up for the loss of Odin?

There are many more likely reasons including making  Hernandez pay for what he did.

@CTB533 How is it that you know that the $5 Million is their concern - the trial is proceeding for his involvement in the death of their son. In the case that there isn't enough evidence to convict him at least this will provide some form of restitution. Ultimately NO amount of money could bring back their son but if I were them I would take every course of action that my lawyers suggested.

@lebanon_leviAre you out of your frigging mind? This guy is a cold blooded murderer!! You sir are an idiot! Valuing your team's performance above human lives lost. What a LOSER!!! Get new software for that brain of yours! You have absolutely NO INTELLIGENCE WHATSOEVER!!! Showing such ignorance and arrogance on the World Wide Web should be really embarrassing but you are too stupid to realize how insensitive and abhorrent your "opinion" is regarding what is IMPORTANT IN LIFE!! Absolutely disgusting!

@KristianColasacco @Adolfis I think you meant to write it something like this:


You should have used "too" instead of "to". Too bad you do not have an education.


                                                             OR


Didn't you mean "too" instead of "to"? Too bad you don't have an education.


                                                              OR


"Too" not "to" ! Too bad you don't have an education.



There are a few more ways you could have corrected it but I think you get the idea. I mean if the grammar police want to strictly enforce everything floating in social media there is an acceptance speech they should start with first. Which was atrocious for anybody that was supposedly accepted to Stanford.

@Richard--Ramirez@lebanon_levi   "Typical patriots fan "????? Jeesch.....I listen to a lot of Boston sports talk radio and haven't heard but maybe a few Pats fans think Hernandez is innocent.  It appears leb_levi might have been speaking with tongue in cheek.

@Whaaaaaatever @Adolfis @KristianColasacco 


Whaaaa if anybody would know about being a troll it is you. The way you have attached your finger to the back of my belt loop is funny considering this article is about a person who is in jail.


I do feel sorry for you and how empty your life is but there comes a point in time when you need to realize it is time to grow up and be an adult.


When you realize how little credibility your posts have and that by stalking me makes you look like a Belieber instead of a normal human being with integrity!


I hope you get help with your issues before it is to late.

@Whaaaaaatever @Adolfis @KristianColasacco 


ever, you follow me around a lot. Not sure why you have latched onto me but you have. It would also seem going by your comments which are full of hate and foul language that you need serious help. I can recommend several hotline numbers for you to try in your area.


And sadly going by your comments I am not the one who lack credibility. especially since my account has been active for a lot longer than your has. Do you have to keep creating accounts on sites like this because your other accounts get closed?


I honestly feel sorry for you and I hope you seek counseling.

Whaaaaaatever

Here you are at again Adolfis!

Still starting arguements while hiding behind your keyboard. What a complete chicken$hit! You've been doing this on a half-dozen articles now for over a week ... all the while just trying to piss people off!

I see your misspelling your words again too like you've done in nearly every post I've seen you make. What an idiot!


You lose your credibility when you keep doing that you know? Makes you look duuuuuummmmmbbb! Duh Dumb!

Watch out for Adolfis.
Adolfis has been trolling the messages boards on SI for the past WEEK or more, non stop - picking fights, incessantly berating others, calling names, making false accusations, and basically talking out of his a$$.

Don't take what he has to say seriously. The guy appears to have serious mental issues and it seems he's just trying to get attention by stirring up anger in others.
