The bizarre saga of former NFL star turned murdering gangster thug Aaron Hernandez has taken another bizarre twist.
Only days after the convicted killer hanged himself in prison, a new report is alleging that Hernandez busted a cap into Odin Lloyd aka the Bluntmaster in order to conceal his hidden bisexuality.
Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison for the killing of Lloyd over a nightclub beef but according to accounts, the victim reportedly referred to the then NFL star as a “smoocher” which is a derogatory term for gays.

According to Newsweek “Aaron Hernandez’s Sex Life Probed as Murder Motive, Police Source Says”
That’s just one of many mysteries Hernandez, known for never shedding the gang connections he made growing up, left behind. He was convicted in April 2015 for shooting and killing his friend, Odin Lloyd, seemingly without motive. But interviews with multiple law enforcement officials directly involved in the case say Lloyd—a semipro football player who was dating Hernandez’s fiance’s sister at the time—had information the football star did not want out: that he was bisexual.
One of the notes left by Hernandez was to his prison boyfriend, who is now on 24/7 suicide watch, multiple law enforcement sources confirm. Hernandez’s sexuality would, of course, not be relevant save for the fact that an intimate relationship he allegedly had with a male former high school classmate was at the center of the investigation into Lloyd’s murder.
Ernest Wallace, a co-defendant in the Lloyd murder case, told detectives the victim had called Hernandez a “schmoocher,” which was taken by Hernandez and his companions as a gay slur. Wallace was also recorded saying during a jailhouse visit with Tanya Singleton, Hernandez’s cousin, that he would not have helped Hernandez get rid of the murder weapon—a crime for which he is now serving a 4½-to-7 year sentence on accessory to murder charges—if he had known Hernandez was a “limp wrist,” multiple sources say.
Whether or not Hernandez was indeed a “schmoocher” is a secret that the former tight end took to his grave. It would seem that the narrative would be perfect for the planned appeal for Lloyd’s murder but thanks to Hernandez’s choice to spare Massachusetts taxpayers millions of dollars by hanging himself that will never happen.
The former New England Patriots star’s funeral is to be held on Monday.
