On Wednesday, former Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged with murder in the death of Odin Lloyd. More details about the case have now emerged, including a possible motive for the slaying: according to the Boston Globe, police are investigating 23-year-old Hernandez for two other murders. “The motive might have been that the victim knew [Hernandez] might have been involved,” an official told them.

Hernandez, who was cut by the Patriots shortly after being arrested yesterday, was picked up in connection with the shooting of 27-year-old semi-pro football player Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee. Lloyd's body was found at a North Attleboro industrial park on June 17, about a half-mile from Hernandez’s home. Hernandez and Lloyd had been spotted together, along with two other men, the night before he was found.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder and firearms charges in that case. But cops are now probing the deaths of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado, who were both fatally shot just after 2 a.m. on July 16, 2012 in Boston. Investigators believe a fight broke out at a club in the South End between those two men and a group that included Hernandez. After the fight, Abreu and Furtado left:

Abreu, who was driving, stopped at a traffic light on Shawmut Avenue, about to make a left onto Herald Street, when a silver or gray SUV with Rhode Island license plates pulled alongside the sedan. Someone from the SUV opened fire, killing Abreu, 29, and Furtado, 28.

During yesterday's arraignment, the prosecutor claimed that Hernandez had become angry with Lloyd two days before his death, after he had seen him talking to a "certain group of people" at a club. "You can't trust anyone anymore," the prosecutor claims Hernandez said before meeting Lloyd on the night of the murder.
