Netfix True Crime Series Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez Is Out Now
If you've binged your way through Don't F*** With Cats and are now waiting for your next true crime fix, then Netflix has once again got your back, because brand new documentary Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez has landed today.
The three-part documentary centres on the 2013 death of Odin Lloyd and the subsequent arrest, trial and conviction of NFL player Aaron Hernandez.
Semi-professional American footballer Lloyd had been dating Hernandez's fiancée's sister before he was shot and killed in an industrial park North Attleborough, Massachusetts.
His death hit headlines across the globe after New England Patriots star Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder - alongside two other men.
At the time of his arrest, Hernandez had recently signed a five-year $40 million (nearly £31 million) contract with the Patriots; and his celebrity status kept the trial directly in the public eye.
In April 2015, Hernandez was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Two years later, Hernandez, aged just 27, took his own life in his prison cell - he had recently been acquitted of an unrelated double murder case involving the deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.
The documentary series takes an in-depth look at the ins and outs of the murder and conviction and features interviews with those close to the case.
It also features courtroom footage from the trial and calls he made from prison and letters he wrote while inside.
True crime fans are already gripped by the chilling documentary, with one taking to Twitter to say: "Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez is utterly engrossing. Props to the filmmakers too for establishing Odin Llyod as more than just a 'victim'. Too many crime docs get caught up in the celebrity of the killer."
Another wrote: "I shouldn't have started this Aaron Hernandez doc series cause now it's 4:15 and I wanna finish watching it cause it's good AF."
A third chipped in: "Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez on Netflix is crazy and sad. He had so much potential."
