Boston police and federal authorities have identified a 3rd suspect wanted in the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, 27. Ernest Wallace, aka “Bo Fish,” is wanted for accessory after murder.
Wallace, whose age is listed as 41 and 44, is believed to be one of two men who was with former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez the night Lloyd was killed.
Hernandez, 23, is being held without bond on first degree murder and weapons charges. A second accomplice, Carlos A. Ortiz, 23, was arrested near Bristol, Conn., earlier this week. Bristol is the hometown of Hernandez.
Ortiz has agreed to be extradited from Connecticut, according to Deadspin.com. He is being held on a $1.5 million bond.
Lloyd’s bullet-riddled body was found June 16 on a secluded gravel road in an industrial park near Hernandez’s mansion in Attleborough, Mass.
Bristol County Assistant District Attorney William McCauley explained the brutal manner in which Lloyd died.
“As the victim was shot, he attempted to defend himself by putting up his arm,” said McCauley during a bail hearing on Thursday. “The first round struck him in the outside of his forearm, traveled through the inside of the forearm and entered his body.”
McCauley said Lloyd “began to turn and he was shot in the back two times.” Hernandez and his two accomplices then “shot him twice through the chest,” once on each side of the chest, McCauley said.
McCauley theorized that Hernandez executed Lloyd because he feared Lloyd would talk to others about his role in a double murder last Summer in Boston.
Hernandez’s fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, told police Hernandez was upset, saying he couldn’t trust anyone the night Lloyd was killed. She said Hernandez left the house with a handgun that night. Jenkins broke down crying in court when the judge denied bond for Hernandez on Thursday.
