‘Rolling Stone’ Digs Up More Dirt About Aaron Hernandez

'Rolling Stone' Digs Up More Dirt About Aaron HernandezJust when you thought the story surrounding Aaron Hernandez couldn’t get any darker or more sinister, Rolling Stone delivers some intriguing details surrounding the former New England Patriots player and his life leading up to his current incarceration.

‘Heavy user of angel dust’

On Monday, the magazine’s official website published an article that serves as a tease for its new issue and the piece written by contributing editor Paul Solotaroff titled “The Gangster in the Huddle,” which centers on Hernandez’s life and the people he surrounded himself with.  Here is what the website asserts will be included in the upcoming piece.

• Hernandez was a heavy user of angel dust, and had become so paranoid over the last year that he carried a gun wherever he went.

• He surrounded himself with a cohort of gangsters, and cut himself off from his family and teammates.

• Hernandez had so infuriated his head coach, Bill Belichick, with missed practices and thug-life stunts, that he was one misstep from being cut.


‘Cover up’

• Both his parents, Dennis and Terri, had criminal records, as did much of his extended family.

• Terri allegedly cheated on Dennis before his death with a violent drug dealer named Jeffrey Cummings, then married Cummings after Dennis died and moved him into the house she shared with Aaron.

• In college his coach (then-University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer) may have helped cover up failed drug tests, along with two violent incidents — an assault and a drive-by shootout outside a local bar.

As CBS Sports’ Will Brinson reports, Hernandez was indicted on a charge of first-degree murder for the death of Odin Lloyd, and he will be arraigned on September 6.

Aaron Hernandez’s 2nd Letter From Jail Surfaces

Aaron Hernandez's 2nd Letter From Jail SurfacesAaron Hernandez has written another letter from prison, and TMZ has obtained and published his correspondence.

‘Everything happens for a reason’

This is the content of the letter:

“Thanks for the support and it means a lot! This will all come to an end and there is a reason god [sic] put me thru [sic] this. Everything happens for a reason. Thanks for the site and sry [sic] I can’t check site there is no internet in jail lol.

P.S. Keep this letter on social media and private. Means a lot for all the support.”

It remains to be seen if TMZ also paid $18,000 for this letter, as the site reportedly paid Sportsworld, Inc. for the first letter Hernandez penned from prison, according to John Zaremba of the Boston Herald.


‘Kept private’

In the former letter, Hernandez maintained his innocence while also requesting his letter be kept private. So much for that request. Perhaps he should stop responding to letters if he truly wants them to remain private, as clearly those wishes won’t be met.

One thing is for certain: $18,000 is a lot to pay for one letter from prison.

This is just the latest chapter in the bizarre and troubling case of Hernandez, currently charged with murdering Odin Lloyd, along with five additional gun charges. Hernandez is also reportedly the center of a grand jury investigation stemming from a 2012 double homicide in Boston.

What do you think of Aaron Hernandez’s involvement in the Odin Lloyd murder case — innocent or guilty? Do you think Hernandez will be able to return to his sports career after this?
