1. The Aaron Hernandez Murder Case

Former New England Patriots' star tight end Aaron Hernandez sits in jail, charged with the murder of an associate, Odin Lloyd, following a series of suspect moves like smashing his phone and home security system before police could review them for possible incrimination evidence. Since then, investigators have uncovered Hernandez' possible links to a double homicide in Boston, an incident in Miami where he allegedly shot a friend who later lost an eye as a result, PCP use, gang activity, and bar fights.
