Police searched the home of former New England Patriots star and current murder suspect Aaron Hernadez on Wednesday, June 26. The police uncovered a .45-caliber bullets in a rental property owned by Hernadez. The same category of bullet was found within Henandez's car. It was .45 caliber bullets that were used to kill Odin L. Lloyd June 17.
Hernadez is accused of murdering Odin L. Lloyd after spending the evening with him at a club.
Aaron Hernadez attempted to be realeased on bail, but due to the bullets in his home and car, that request was denied by Superior Court Judge Renee P. Dupuis, according to The Boston Globe.
Despite being denied the bail request, Hernadez's lawyers are confident in his client's innocence.
"This is a case where as far as we know, there is no eyewitness testimony, there are no inculpatory admissions, there has been no indications any direct evidence as to who shot the decedent, who was present when the decedent was shot, whether there was a plan to kill the decedent and any other indication that if there was such a plan, Mr. Hernandez was part of it. They may have such evidence, they many not ... But they haven't shown it to us as yet at this early stage of the case," defense attorney James Sultan said.
Another one of Hernadez's lawyers, Michael Fee said, "It is at bottom a circumstantial case. It is not a strong case," according to ESPN.
However, Judge Dupuis does not seem to agree.
The case against the former football star is "circumstantial, to be sure, but very, very strong," the judge said.
