Carlos Ortiz Flipped on Aaron Hernandez, Likely to Testify For Prosecution
I knew Ortiz would turn against Hernandez when I saw him crying in court. The guy who cries in court is normally the one who feels like he has the most to lose.
He already told police about Hernandez’s “flop house” and now according to the Boston Herald he has likely turned State’s Witness and flipped on Hernandez.
A sidekick of Aaron Hernandez is cooperating with authorities in what one former prosecutor called a key development in the murder case against the ex-Patriots star, as new evidence emerged yesterday potentially tying him to the slaying of Odin L. Lloyd.
Court documents obtained yesterday show that Carlos Ortiz — who authorities say was with Hernandez when the Dorchester amateur football player was executed in North Attleboro on June 17 — has flipped on his friend.
“Ortiz did confirm that he was with Aaron Hernandez on the night in question,” state trooper Michael Bates wrote in an affidavit filed in Wrentham District Court. “Ortiz then went on to explain that Hernandez has another address that not many people know about. Ortiz referred to this location as an apartment-style location, commonly referred to as a ‘flop house.’ ”
In these type of cases, the person who talks first normally gets the best deal. Ortiz who has a wife and multiple kids decided that loyalty be damned, he isn’t going down with Hernandez. He is a lifetime criminal, so Hernandez can’t be surprised he jumped off that sinking ship quickly.
