Couldn't believe him -- pretty disappointed in his actions I figured you know.
Dollar checks guys salsa in everything even the problem children is brought amendment.
And they seem to -- the lives -- -- disappointment here that.
Almost like a little bit betrayed now we put our our trust in these guys and I know they're only human but still it's just -- -- -- It is quite an upsetting story New England Patriots fans -- are reacting to the first degree murder charge against the former star tight end Aaron Hernandez.
As police announced -- second arrest in the case 27 year old Carlos -- was arrested in.
The hometown of Aaron Hernandez Bristol Connecticut.
And charged as a fugitive from justice right now Hernandez is being held without bail and Dartmouth -- Massachusetts for that murder of semi pro football player.
Voted -- so there's a couple of names here but the bottom line is Hernandez is being held for murder he was in court yesterday when prosecutors described a murder at -- friend.
As a cold blooded execution.
Hernandez is due back in court later today when his -- lawyers will argue.
For bail joining me now as a journalist -- cover this story.
Is it -- and he's doing this several times first time we get to see on camera Wesley but nice to have you Wesley Larry is a reporter with the Boston Globe.
And he was in court yesterday and -- there's so many questions around this case that gets the big the biggest what is.
What what are -- saying is the motive here for Hernandez if team did indeed committed this crime.
Why would he do it.
If we're different and -- committed this crime lawyers are alleging that he'd gone out with -- mowing the previous Friday night to murder occurred.
Late into the night -- -- Sunday night.
Early Monday morning there's -- -- Friday night the two men as -- another group of guys were out in -- rumor popular club here in Boston.
They were out together and at some point boy was seen talking their -- -- chatting with people who Hernandez had told him not to talk to.
It's unclear what it was he would have been talking about.
But for whatever reason Hernandez became very -- -- about that and according to prosecutors.
During this car right after an innocent picked up way from home he laid out this information from that he was upset he felt like he can trust him anymore.
And that is what they are advancing as the motive for this crime again -- -- in some -- you're talking about commandos are relaying some type of information that.
Hernandez had instructed him not to tell anyone.
-- earlier today we didn't know the identity of the two friends now we're getting its name concert tees we also according to therefore it's their.
They haven't found the exact murder weapons may -- can clarify that as well Wesley but there seems to be some.
Some good evidence surveillance video -- the -- now this arrest and there seems to be some questions as well what do you think some of the big questions that are.
Still looming out there.
There's still some very major questions the first being there's there's no smoking gun we have known.
-- no murder weapon in this case -- police are still searching for things facets of an active investigation.
The second goes back to this motive and in hammering down when exactly the motive -- -- As and -- you thought and the listeners thought it seems a little weak but you know Hernandez would have.
To get an upset that rob -- was talking to somebody didn't like him to -- over it.
-- again the big question of did Hernandez.
Pulled the trigger himself that remains an unknown remains unknown how prosecutors and trying to -- his hands to a murder weapon they don't have.
And again what what the role of these two other men we now know Carlos -- -- listening.
Believed to be associated -- from Bristol Connecticut I've been you know spent most of morning digging into his past he does have a little bit of -- rap -- largely for.
Tom Petty crimes -- -- those types of things but again.
-- he's no stranger to law enforcement and it's unclear exactly how they believe he is connected to this.
But it seems likely he may have been one of those two men and Carlos Fernandes.
Tell us a little bit about -- you spent time in -- -- Aaron Hernandez about his past where he was right now in his life and his career.
What factors might be factors we should consider here as well.
Clear that we think that fairness if you think that this is someone who's really -- the top of the world this is someone who is beginning his upward rising star.
In this -- 23 year old just signed to a massive contract.
Just had a had a child.
Last year I'm someone who did have a little bit of a checkered past based -- scouting reports and what people send whether it was you know potentially -- drug test back in.
In college potentially -- -- with some of the you know the quote wrong guys -- with that said he was someone who always publicly said that he was going to.
You know he was not -- the patriots taking the faith with him he was gonna you know earn their respect -- can -- this contract.
And I remember reading a quote from when his his child was born back in November where he said you know I can't be -- -- anymore.
But again it seems as if he had a lot to lose here if he was involved in these murders the -- the prosecutor.
Are safe and healthy again innocent until proven guilty but it doesn't appear that he's gonna be released.
Any time soon even with this bail hearing coming up -- to the -- talking to again thank you so much.
Of course -- thank you.
