CCTV shows Hernandez dancing at the pumps

Testimony delivered at Aaron Hernandez’s murder trial stated he ran up a $243 bar tab and smoked marijuana in the hours before the boyfriend of his fiancee’s sister was shot to death.

Video surveillance taken an hour before the killing of Odin Lloyd on June 17th 2013, clearly shows Hernandez walking unsteadily at a gas station and dancing near the gas pumps.  The video also shows a co-defendant, Carlos Ortiz, wearing a white towel around his shoulders. A white towel was found near Lloyd’s body later that morning in an industrial park not far from Hernandez’s home. Prosecutors haven’t said who shot Lloyd but said Hernandez orchestrated the killing.

Ortiz and co-defendant, Ernest Wallace, have pleaded not guilty and will be tried separately.

Prosecutors displayed a receipt from that night that showed the tab included 30 alcoholic drinks: 11 Hennessy cognacs, 10 Sex on the Beach mixed vodka drinks, seven Bud Lights and two Grey Goose vodkas.

The defendants leave the bar at 2:12 a.m. – Lloyd was dead by 3:30 a.m.

Prosecutors have said Hernandez left the gas station and drove to Lloyd’s home in the Dorchester section of Boston. A different surveillance video already seen by the jury shows Lloyd getting into the rear passenger side of a car at 2:32 a.m. outside his home.
