Prosecutors yesterday laid out in extraordinary detail the events leading up to the murder of Odin Lloyd in North Attleborough last week, charging former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez with the horrible crime.

But the story gets even more dramatic. Reports today suggest that police are investigating Hernandez in connection with a double murder last July, when two men were shot to death in their car after a fight at a nightclub. Lloyd's knowledge of Hernandez's involvement may have been a motive for his murder, reports suggest.

What does all this mean for the Patriots, a team that has prided itself on being a different type of NFL franchise — one that doesn't tolerate miscreants on the roster?
