Aaron Hernandez: An ID Murder Mystery

Postby Diamond Dog » 26 Apr 2020, 19:10

Just finished this two parter..... a really good documentary around the murder attributed to Aaron Hernandez, the American Football player who had signed a $40 million contract with the New England Patriots just prior to the discovery of the body. It takes you through the trial, the outcome and the subsequent twists that really throw some worrying light on his life. Well worth a watch.

People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

I've just seen this Pete. I must admit I have little sympathy with the subject, its just a bleak story of having everything and flushing it all down the toilet in frankly stupid and sociopathic circumstance.

Well quite Frank.

However did you see the part about CTE? That was scary.

I did. I wasn’t convinced it was really contributory in this case though.
