Recent court filings and statements made during Aaron Hernandez’s latest court hearing could make his barber a key witness in the murder of Odin Lloyd, according to FOX 25 in Boston.

Hernandez is currently in jail, accused of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Lloyd last June. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder and several weapons charges. Police are also reportedly investigating Hernandez in connection with a 2012 double homicide.

Robby Olivares cut Hernandez’s hair at the former New England Patriots tight end’s home two days before Hernandez was arrested, and FOX 25 reports the pair also had a social relationship.

FOX 25 also reports Olivares could be a witness to an outing that officials have linked to the murder of Lloyd.

“An important part of this case has to do with events that occurred at the Rumors night club,” Jamie Sultan, a lawyer for Hernandez, said.

On Friday, June 14, two nights before Lloyd was executed, Lloyd and Hernandez partied at Rumor night club in Boston’s Theater District. Authorities believe Lloyd revealed something at the club that caused Hernandez to no longer trust him, something so explosive that Lloyd had to die.

A security manager at Rumor claims he overheard it, and we now know Robby Olivares may have, too.

Police say Lloyd was shot five times around 48 hours after Hernandez’s night at Rumors.

FOX 25 also reported on pictures posted to Olivares’ Instagram account, including one photo showing Hernandez and his fiancé as well as Olivares and a woman, who is most likely his significant other.

The caption reads, “Chillin’ w da wife’s.”

With that haircut, maybe it's the barber who should be on trial.

Make a statement with this clown. These guys need to stop trying to play gangster and thinking they are above the law. He is in jail for a reason and when they ring him up for this and the double homicide he is the prime suspect in I hope his sentence starts with a letter instead of a number. He is where he belongs.

My first though when reading the headline was "Tiki or Ronde?  Maybe Marion?"  After reading the comments, I see I wasn't alone.

Tiki may have been an eyewitness. Reports are out that Tiki, Hernandez house cat, may have been in the car with him at the time of the shooting, other witnesses report seeing the cat looking out the car window.

everytime this frame job gets momentum a witness dies, and another one appears.  Is there any proof Hernandez was even in the car?  I bet one of the real killers took the gum they found out of the garbage at his house and planted it in the car.  Rumors night club.  Connect the dots people!!!


The barber probably is going to testify, "I heard hit talk about hits.  I heard him talk about killing people."


It is all slang for football playing.  I hope the Pats still have the rights to him.  He is gonna be ready for spring drills at this pace.

Yes, I am an idiot. When I saw the blurb on the main page I thought they were talking about Tiki or Ronde. LOL Glad to hear they're not involved in this mess.

@alanc1818  I don't know. I just don't get what is taking so long. If the case was truly solid, they'd have moved forward already with it. It just seems like the state is taking their time with this case. 

I know, I know. He's "in jail for a reason". 

Because no innocent people have EVER been arrested and remanded to custody in the history of our justice system, right?

@Boogieman1281 I must apologize as I did not see the other heading where they put barber at the beginning which made it have a capital "B", so I understand what you were saying now.

@Cool  Tiki used to love running around the house.  He ran away after Coughlin, Hernandez's dog, made it so it wasn't fun anymore.  The atmosphere in the house improved greatly immediately afterwards.

@TampaThunder  lol, did the same thing and felt so duped when I read the first sentence.  We all know that SI would never try to mislead their readers by deceptive headlines.. so it has to be our fault.

@YemiThaBassMan @alanc1818  It takes a long time for a trial to get to court.  You are guaranteed a right to a speedy trial, but any good defense attorney will convince his client to waive that right.  People's memories get shakier as time goes on.  Maybe a witness gets a new job in another state.  A lot can happen as time goes on.

@Cool @TampaThunder

they were super slick using the word "barber" at the start of the sentence so it would be capitalized like it might have been a proper name.


if you're going to write deceptive headlines, make them truthful deceptive headlines so you can keep your integrity!
