After the double murder of Furtado and Abreu in the South End on July 16, 2012 Boston Police Department had video of Hernandez at the Cure Nightclub at the same time that Abreu and Furtado were there. They never questioned AH in any way about that murder until after the Lloyd Murder! Furthermore, they had video surveillance tapes of the vicinity of the Cure nightclub taken from the parking garage showing AH and associate (Bradley) laying in wait for the group and then following them in a Silver Toyota 4Runner. Again, they never looked at these tapes until after the Lloyd murder despite crime scene reports of a silver SUV rushing away from the scene of the murder!
For me it is an unthinkable and negligent to not have viewed surveillance tapes local to the murder where the victims had spent the final hours of their lives! What would have happened had BPD done a more thorough investigation including viewing the tapes and questioning Hernandez? Would AH have been arrested immediately after (or at least warned off) thereby notifying the Patriots not to resign him and also preventing him from killing Lloyd? BPD is patting itself on the back at the moment for its police work in indicting Hernandez but a more thorough examination reveals they blew it back in July 2012 and allowed a murderer to continue to roam and kill.
