Here is the seller’s description of the vehicle on the eBay page:
This is the REAL DEAL !!! Aaron Hernandez’ infamous silver Toyota 4-runner. As seen in the New York Times, we’re auctioning off this piece of Patriots football memorabilia. This Toyota was given to Hernandez to drive by Fox Toyota in East Providence Rhode Island, for guest appearances, and signings at the dealership, as he was rising to stardom as a tight-end tandem with Rob Gronkowski. This is the 4-runner Boston Police had been searching for in connection with a shooting outside a boston nightclub. The vehicle was found in Hernandez, uncles garage in Bristol Rhode Island, and brought to Boston Police departments impound yard, where it has been until last week. The Toyota is just the way it came from the impound yard, and still has the black soot on the map lights, and sunroof switch where the police dusted for finger prints !! The SUV has 53,000 miles on the odometer, and runs great !! The winner of the auction will also receive a framed jersey autographed, by Hernandez himself. Nows your chance to own this infamous piece of famous football memorabilia !!
This is one twisted piece of memorabilia, that’s for sure. Hernandez was acquitted in mid-April in his double murder trial. He and a friend were allegedly driving in this 4Runner when one of the men allegedly shot Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, who were in a car over from them.
The car is located in Massachusetts and can be shipped. The price as of Tuesday afternoon was $10,700, with 49 bids already submitted. The auction is scheduled to end on Sunday night.
Hernandez committed suicide on April 19, days after being acquitted in his trial. His attorney plans to take action against the prison for negligence.
