Video surveillance photos taken from cameras inside Aaron Hernandez's North Attleboro mansion the night of Odin Lloyd's murder reveal the former New England Patriot holding a gun in his hand.
Police say that Hernandez tampered with the 14 surveillance cameras located in his $1.2 million mansion before officials were able to obtain an arrest warrant. Photographs from at least one of the cameras were still recovered, one of which depicts Hernandez carry a gun around his house only minutes after Odin Lloyd was shot to death.
"Interior surveillance footage shows Aaron Hernandez pass through the living room area of the residence while holding an item, identified by investigators being consistent with a firearm," according to a search warrant affidavit released by the Attleboro District Court today.
"Aaron Hernandez is observed on the surveillance video moving the item believed to be a firearm between his hands as he passes through the living room,'' the affidavit stated.
Llyod, 27, was shot five times with a .45 caliber. His body was discovered less than a mile from Hernandez's home. A car rented out under Hernandez's name also turned up a .45 caliber casing that matched the gun used to kill Lloyd.
Two other men have been arrested in the case: Ernest Wallace, 41, and Carlos Ortiz, 27. Wallace and Hernandez have both denied charges at this point.
Surveillance footage shows Hernandez leaving his house the night of the murder with two men presumed to be Ortiz and Wallace. Police have revealed a time line which shows the men leaving that house at around 1 am, entering a gas station around 2 am, and picking up Odin Lloyd about 20 minutes later.
At 3:23 am the silver sedan the men were driving is seen entering the industrial park where Lloyd was killed. Footage of Hernandez holding the gun while in his home was captured at 3:33 am that same night.
