CBS to air Aaron Hernandez feature before new book

Aaron Hernandez in high school

CBS’ 48 Hours will take a look at the life and death of former New England Patriots tight end and previously convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez.

Of the many storylines throughout the Patriots dynasty arguably the most polarizing was Aaron Hernandez.

Because of that, the former tight end is set to be the feature subject of an upcoming hour long episode of “48 Hours” which will chronicle Hernandez’s life, murder conviction, suicide and the aftermath that followed on January 20 on CBS.

James Patterson, who wrote the soon-to-be released book All-American Murder about Hernandez, is said to take viewers on a journey through Hernandez’s life starting from his upbringing in Bristol, Connecticut to where we are now.

“I believe this is the most fascinating, complicated and troubling crime story of our times,” Patterson says. “And you don’t know the half of it yet.”

Hernandez was serving a life sentence at the time of his death for the first-degree murder charge of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. He hanged himself using bedsheets in April of 2017 just days after being acquitted of a double murder that occurred in Boston’s South End back in 2012.

“He wasn’t an evil man. No, he wasn’t. He was a sick man,” Dr. Bennet Omalu, the first to identify CTE in football players, said of Hernandez.

The special airs two days before Patterson’s book of the same name is released.
