Standing outside Odin Lloyd's funeral, Boston Bandits general manger Mike Branch wants to make something clear: "Odin wasn't a drug dealer. He was not no drug dealer. He was hanging with the wrong person."


It's been two weeks since Lloyd was found shot dead behind an industrial park in suburban Boston, nearly a year since Furtado and Daniel Abreu were gunned down in a car while driving home from a nightclub. As investigators dig in, the one suspect who has so far emerged in all three homicides is Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots tight end who not even a year ago signed a five-year, $40 million contract to play football.
