Massachusetts state penal system resident and former New England Patriots superstar tight end Aaron Hernandez’s crib has hit the market. Hernandez, who has been referred to as the “gangster in the huddle” went from riches to rags and from fame to infamy after he was convicted in the murder of Odin Lloyd, a jock-sniffing dope peddler who was affectionately referred to as the “Blunt Master”. Hernandez – who was a dynamic star player and one of Tom Brady’s top targets -was given life in prison for his cold blooded role in the killing of Lloyd whose grave offense was disrespecting the former Pro Bowler. The casa de Hernandez is modest by the standards of many big time professional athletes but it’s still a pad that is well beyond the means of the average person who has to work for a living and for a mere 1.5 million clams it could be yours.
CNN reports that “Aaron Hernandez’s $1.5M home hits the market”:
For $1.5 million you can own the home of former New England Patriots star and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez.
The five-bedroom, six-bath contemporary colonial in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, became familiar to observers of the former tight end’s sensational 2015 murder trial.
Grainy surveillance video played at trial showed Hernandez in the spacious home holding what prosecutors argued was the .45-caliber handgun used in the 2013 murder of his onetime friend Odin Lloyd minutes before the video was taken.
During trial, the jury toured the home, located a short distance from the industrial park where Lloyd’s body was found. Lloyd, a semi-pro football player, was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee at the time.
The sale of the 5,647-square-foot house for $1,499,000 is listed on Redfin. It was confirmed by Boston-based attorney Douglas Sheff, who represents Lloyd’s mother, Ursula Ward, in a 2013 civil lawsuit against Hernandez.
Hernandez is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for Lloyd’s murder.
Hernandez is awaiting trial for the 2012 murders of Daniel de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28, who were gunned down in their car while leaving a Boston nightclub.
An accidental bump on the dance floor followed by a spilled drink may have agitated Hernandez before he allegedly shot and killed Abreau and Furtado, Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney Patrick Haggan said during the former player’s arraignment in 2014.
How long that the ex-NFL thug’s former digs remains on the market is dependent on whether the asking price will outweigh the stigma of living in the former home of a violent criminal – the dude who ended up buying O.J. Simpson’s Brentwood, CA mansion just had the damn place demolished and rebuilt the fucker from scratch.
