Earlier we wrote about a retired Superior Court Judge claiming that he wouldn’t be surprise if Aaron Hernandez beat the Odin Lloyd murder.

Now according to My Fox Boston, former Hernandez friend and accomplice Carlos Ortiz says he is officially done with cooperating.


Investigators believe that there were two people with the 24-year-old when Odin Lloyd was killed, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz. Ortiz is an admitted angel dust user with a lengthy criminal record.

Ortiz is charged with being an accessory after the fact in connection with the Lloyd murder. He’s told detectives on the record that Hernandez and Hernandez alone got out of the car with Lloyd when Lloyd was executed in North Attleboro. Despite credibility issues, the state would likely want Ortiz to spell that out to a jury. However, Ortiz’s lawyer John Connors has suggested that he is done cooperating.

In a telephone interview Wednesday with Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, Connors said, “I have no control over whether he will be called as a witness, he does have a Fifth Amendment privilege and that’s about all I can say on that.”

If Ortiz truly is done cooperating, the only person who could tie Hernandez to the Lloyd murder would be his other accomplice, Ernest Wallace.
