Former Florida Gators and New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who was convicted of the first degree murder of Odin Lloyd and sentenced to life in prison without parole, is the subject of "Killer Inside", a Netflix documentary that examines the events in Hernandez's life that made him both an elite tight end and a murderer.
Hernandez, who committed suicide in 2017 at the age of 27, is alleged to have had a on-and-off homosexual relationship with Dennis SanSoucie, who played quarterback on Hernandez's high school team.
Potential spoilers ahead for anyone who has not seen the documentary.
“Me and Aaron experimented and I’ll be honest, we continued because we probably enjoyed it,” Sansoucie says. “In school, there weren’t a lot of kids that were out of the closet, and the few that were, I was looking at them like, ‘What a homo.’ Here I am, I’m the football player, I was in such denial because I was an athlete. You mean to tell me that the quarterback and tight end were gay? They sleep with other men? No. It doesn’t sit right.”
He also claims that both of them were nervous about their fathers finding out.
Hernandez's fractured relationship with his father is examined closely in the documentary, as the film makers try to find the point at which Hernandez allegedly went off the rails mentally.
Hernandez obviously isn't able to confirm or deny these reports, so they must be taken with a grain of salt.
