Anyone can now own a little piece of infamy if they have the right price. The car a 2006 Toyota 4Runner was given to Hernandez to drive by Fox Toyota in East Providence Rhode Island. In exchange for driving the car, Hernandez appeared at autograph signings and other events at the Toyota dealership.
Hernandez was found not guilty of the double murder, only five days before he took his own life in his prison cell at age 27. Although the jury claimed the prosecution failed to prove that Hernandez was the shooter, evidence presented at trial proved the fatal shots came from the Toyota 4Runner.
The car was found in 2013 in the garage of Hernandez’s uncle. Also found in the home at the time was Carlos Ortiz one of the men in the car with Aaron on the night of the July 2012 drive by shooting outside of Cure Nightclub in Boston. The shooting took the lives of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado.
