TMZ reports that prosecutors outlining their case against the former New England Patriot today said they can prove that the NFLer bought gas, cigarettes and "blue Bubblicious bubble gum" at a gas station just hours before Odin Lloyd died.
Prosecutors said Hernandez’s cell phone places him at an industrial park near his Massachusetts home at 3:22 a.m. on June 17, the day Lloyd was killed.
Hernandez was seen on surveillance video and in the time he was out of sight, witnesses heard multiple shots, prosecutors said.
A .45-caliber casing and a piece of chewed-up blue Bubblicious gum were later found under the seat of the rental car Hernandez was using.
TMZ calls it "the smoking gum."
Hernandez pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.
Here’s what we’re wondering. There are nearly 30 flavors of Bubblicious out there.
What kind of (alleged) killer chews cotton candy?
Why not Savage Sour Apple? Twisted Tornado? Frantic Fruit?
If the gum doesn’t fit, they must acquit.
