Aaron Hernandez Jail ID Listed On eBay Is Fake, Here’s Why

The jail identification card of former New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez was reportedly listed on eBay on Friday but has since been removed. Amidst the “81” jerseys, trading cards, and a book that supposedly contains Hernandez’s jailhouse letters, the ID was said to be from Suffolk County Jail in Boston, Massachusetts.

The ID was listed by an eBay member in Lawrence, Massachusetts, with a starting bid of $500 and was available for “local pickup.” The listing is no longer available in the completed listings, sold listings, or current listings section of the e-commerce company’s website, indicating that it was likely removed by eBay due to policy violations.

According to CBS Boston, the listing was created by an unnamed person who was supposedly in jail with Hernandez and “happened to com across his jail id (sic).” The listing was posted on Friday as a seven day auction but was removed by Saturday morning.

Curiously, the photo in the jailhouse ID is of Hernandez in street clothing, not a uniform issued by the jail, making it questionable as to whether the ID is authentic or a fake. There are also no confirmed reports of his Suffolk County prison ID being stolen from the Boston jail.

However, according to a previous report from the Inquisitr, his jail ID was reportedly stolen by another inmate at the Bristol County House of Correction after his June, 2013 arrest.

Before Hernandez’s trial for the murder of Odin Lloyd started at the end of January, Hernandez did spend time at the Suffolk County jail. He was first held at Bristol County House of Correction after his arrest but was moved to Boston that summer to be closer to his Boston-based attorneys.

Shortly before the trial started, Hernandez was transferred back to the Bristol County jail so he was in closer proximity to trial that is now in the deliberation stage in Superior Court in Fall River, Massachusetts.

Aaron Hernandez pleaded not guilty in the June, 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, and has been charged with first-degree murder and a variety of weapons charges. After almost 20 hours of deliberations, the 12 jurors are still deliberating over evidence and testimony given by more than 130 witnesses.

The Boston Globe reports that the jury must reach a unanimous verdict on each of three separate charges — murder (first-degree or second-degree), gun possession, and ammunition possession.

Deliberations in the Aaron Hernandez murder trial will resume on Monday, April 13 at 9 a.m.
