In breaking news in the Aaron Hernandez story, it's now being reported by csnne.com that not only did Aaron Hernandez know the victim Odin Lloyd-who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiance-but he was reportedly out with two other men at a bar the night of Lloyd's death.  While it has not been confirmed, it's believed that the other two men were the uncles of Hernandez's fiance, who were up visiting from Conn.

Hernandez is still not identified as a suspect in the shooting, but things are clearly not going in the direction anyone would want them to go, were they in his shoes.  As such, he's hired legal representation, and doesn't plan on making any more statements in the near future.
