On Wednesday, June 26, 2013, Aaron Hernandez was led out of his North Attleborough house in handcuffs, charged with the murder of Dorchester man Odin Lloyd, whose body was found more than a week earlier in an industrial park near Hernandez's home. Since the arrest, Hernandez has been cut by the Patriots, alleged to have shot a man's eye out in Florida earlier this year, and is being investigated in connection to a 2012 double murder.
