Former NFL QB and current accused killer, Aaron Hernandez, was transported from Bristol County House of Corrections in North Dartmouth late Saturday morning to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford for an undisclosed medical issue.

Jail officials would not comment on exactly why Hernandez was hospitalized but did indicate that it did not involve a fight or altercation.



Hernandez’s entire trip lasted about an hour, describing it as a routine transport that is standard procedure for any inmate. On Friday, Hernandez requested that he be moved out of the Bristol County jail because he wants to be closer to his attorneys in Boston and he’s having issues with Hodgson. source

Hernandez is currently being held without bail for the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd in North Attleboro and the July 2012 murders of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu in the South End.
