Netflix's True Crime Documentary 'Killer Inside: The Mind Of Aaron Hernandez' Will Give You Chills
The highly anticipated docuseries 'Killer Inside: The Mind Of Aaron Hernandez' has officially dropped on Netflix, and it's guaranteed to leave you with chills.
The three-part Netflix special will examine how former New England Patriots player Hernandez, a fourth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, went from landing a five-year, $40 million dollar contract with one of the biggest teams in American Football, to a convicted killer.
Back in June of 2013, the career of Hernandez came to an abrupt end.
He was arrested for the murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro player whose body was found a mile away from Hernandez's home.
Almost two years later, in April 2015, the Connecticut-born Hernandez was found guilt of first-degree murder and in turn, was sentenced to life in prison.
The film will aim to explain all the theories as to why he killed him, and went on to subsequently cover up his death.
Two years later, the 27-year-old took his own life in his prison cell, days after being acquitted of the 2012 double homicide of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, a separate double-murder case he was also tried for.
Here's what to expect from Netflix's brand new three-part documentary as they detail the shocking story of Hernandez from start to finish.
Episode 1: Aaron's arrest for the inexplicable murder of Odin Lloyd shocks the sports world, and his life and relationships before stardom are explored.
Episode 2:: Red flags arise during the athlete's college days in Florida, but the NFL still comes calling. Aaron's relationship with a criminal comes into focus.
Episode 3: The spectacle of the first trial ends, and Aaron hires a celebrity lawyer for his second trial. Doctors study the impact of Aaron's concussions.
At the time of his death, a judge threw out Hernandez's conviction, citing the legal principle that if a defendant convicted at trial dies before an appeal is heard, they should no longer be considered guilty.
However, the prosecution then appealed, and Massachusetts' highest court reinstated his murder conviction in March.
Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez is available to watch on Netflix today.
