Odin Lloyd, semi professional football player, was murdered in June near former NFL player Aaron Hernandez’ home. Hernandez has been charged for the murder and is awaiting trial. Two other men, from Connecticut, have also bee arrested for the murder: Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz.
Ortiz seems to be talking as he has told police about Hernandez’ other residence where they found evidence. However, police have not found the murder weapon which they believe is the gun Hernandez is holding in security camera photos.
This is when Shayanna Jenkins come in.
Police believe Jenkins, Hernandez’ fiancée and mother of his daughter, hid the murder weapon. According to ESPN report:
In court Tuesday, Bomberg said that the day after Lloyd was killed, Jenkins retrieved the box from the basement of the home she shared with Hernandez in North Attleborough, Mass., put it in a trash bag, covered it with baby clothes and drove away with it. Jenkins repeatedly told grand jurors she threw the box in a dumpster but couldn’t recall where, according to Bomberg.
Perjury charges have a maximum sentence of 20 years. She has plead not guilty for these charges.
