Per the Associated Press, documents show that Carlos Ortiz told Massachusetts investigators that Ernest Wallace, the third man arrested in connection with the case, said Hernandez admitted to shooting Lloyd in an industrial park in North Attleborough, Mass. Documents also show that police discovered a vehicle linked to a 2012 double homicide in Boston was rented in Hernandez’s name.
Ortiz apparently did not witness the shooting. He told police that he, Wallace, Hernandez and Lloyd were in a car together the morning of Lloyd’s death. Ortiz told police that the other three got out to urinate, and that he heard gunshots before Wallace and Hernandez got back in the car without Lloyd and sped away.
From the moment we saw Ortiz nearly breaking down and crying in court, it became obvious that he felt remorseful about the situation. It’s not surprising that he appears to be the one cooperating with police in helping them pursue the murder case.
