9 Pro Athletes Convicted of Murder

Being a sports star can be murder. It can apparently also drive you to commit murder. Which athletes have been convicted of murder? Here are the eight most bloodthirsty pro-athletes who have been convicted of murder for reasons as silly as a traffic dispute all the way to murdering underworld crime bosses... which would be an awesome job title, minus the whole murder thing... It's kinda shocking that there were more than eight murderous athletes, but I kept the list for now to the most interesting sports star killers.

Pro athletes should have enough money to hire hit men if they must kill, you know? And if you are getting paid boo koo bucks to be a pro athlete, WTF are you so angry about anyhow? But these jocks aren't the brightest bulbs in professional athletics, as evidenced by their stories below. Be on the lookout for a sequel if this list of murderous athletes is a hit.

    April 15, 2015: Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, 25, was found guilty of first-degree murder. He was first charged with killing his fiancé's sister's boyfriend, Odin Lloyd, 27, in 2013. According to the prosecution, Hernandez and two other men picked up Lloyd at his home, drove him to a secluded industrial park, and shot him six times. They never presented a possible motive for the murder, nor did they find a murder weapon or any witnesses, yet they were still able to convince a jury that Hernandez had orchestrated the killing. Security video from his home showed Hernandez holding a gun just a few minutes after Lloyd was killed.

    The two men with Hernandez at the time, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, were also charged and will be tried separately. Hernandez's lawyers claimed he was but a witness to the crime. He was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.
