"The key was to keep them proprietary for us throughout the process. You know, there were other moments where we found really important new news. I mean, Beth Healy when she's broken the news about what's happened in prison the prison holding back on records and not telling us what exactly what happened in the final hours of Hernandez life when they could have. I mean that was real breakthrough. We have you know, course, finding Dennis San Suu see him coming forward in again, even. We weren't. You know, we we decided early on this project. We aren't here to try to investigate Aaron Hernandez a sexuality per se. And we I wasn't asking these people about Aaron sexuality. They they volunteered this. They they wanted to talk about the difference it made in their lives and Denison suceeds life. So those kinds of things where real breakthroughs for us. I think and and then we finally talked to Jonathan Hernandez Aaron's brother after many months of dealing Goshi eating with him. And finally got him to come and talk to us and tell us and very clearly what had happened to he Inara and has children. And that's that really was illuminating in terms of the the beatings. They took his children and the fear that they lived with. So all of those were sort of breakthrough moments for us, and you don't celebrate some of them because of the what they are. But you certainly say, hey, we we're getting somewhere with a story. That's true. I'm sure when you're on covering just super. Dark details. It's not like people are cracking open. The champagne the the interview with Jonathan is really really powerful. Can you imagine more episodes if you uncover more relevant information? Well, I mean, I could I mean, I think that there's much more to say, I personally think these jail calls as much more in those that we could bring out that would be informative, and perhaps entertaining the people without feeling as though they were crass or we're just doing it for, you know, salacious purposes, I think they think it can still show two sides of Aaron and Hernandez in what though the life. He lived in the in the life those around him lived. Well, thank you so much for telling us more about how you and the whole spotlight team worked on this on this guide eater series. I for one and waiting for more episodes. So thank you will live. It's been great talking with you. Thank you for taking it interest. And thank you for sharing this time. With me.

"About your career. Have you always been able to have to find tabby at work be personally signed it's fine to you as well as professionally science fine the greatest satisfaction. I take from journalism is lifting up people who are down or exposing wrongs or you know, it's trying to help me about, you know, whether it's putting putting a guy in prison, who's molesting children, young female tennis players or getting millions of dollars for the Boston public schools after they for out the Atlantic programs in the buzz public schools after they've been neglecting them for years because of you know, series, we're able to do or whether it, you know, just exposing the things that make life better for the people need help. I think that's the greatest satisfaction. I take from the job in whether this series helps you know, people understand better. What how this business works and the toll it can take. I mean, we're not making excuses for our Hernandez. He did what he did. But there's so much around this that could. There's a Luma dating about football. And in our culture as a whole again think about career advice for regular people wouldn't vice do you have for those who are weathering being in industries that are going through dramatic changes. Like, obviously, your business journalism media, you know, constant upheaval constantly changing. It's my, you know, you're now podcasting Bobby, and you probably never expected you. It'd be doing that. Right. So how do you? Yes. And who knows if I ever will again? It's been an enlightening experience a rewarding experience, and I would just tell them to keep keep plugging. I mean, there's always going to be a need for journalism for good journalism for people to you know, expose stories that need to be written. So just keep writing having fun, and, you know, making the stories come alive, so the working as an individual writer versus being on a team to make this prince series and the podcast together. The team of four reporters how are those things different for you as as a reporter, you generally, spend your career, working alone? And but this this particular was very rewarding experience because I'm working with some really really accomplish investigative reporters. We have we have Sasha Pfeiffer, who of course, is part of the the team that broke the the Catholic church story, the priests abusing the children, they're really changed the way that the world looks at the Catholic church and its treatment of of. Young young boys by pres in. So she wanna Pulitzer prize with that crew for the and of course, was played in the movie the any spotlight, of course. So she's she's wonderful to work with. We have Beth Healy who was a Pulitzer finalist for her work on a story called debtors hell, and which these collection people shakedown consumers clog up the courts, we have Andrew Ryan another all these really -ccomplish journalists. He he was a Pulitzer finalist as well for a spotlight project on race in Boston that looked at whether Boston is as racist as as it's come to be seen. And then our editor Patty women who edited that series on race and was a Pulitzer finalist for that as well. So these people are all we all I think learn from each other and health each other and shared on the project and propelled it forward and remarkably we're we're great cohesive team. I think firm for many months, and it was I'm proud to have worked with them a love to try to do it again. Yeah. You know, it's. It's so unusual. That your newsroom was portrayed on the big screen. We've all seen spotlight. It is working on an investigative team as as exciting as it looks in the movies. I know it's a lot of grinding through material, but what were their thrilling moments as as a team when you made big discoveries are big decisions. Well, I think they're certainly earlier moments where you say, wow, you know, with this gold. I mean those jail calls, and we got those those three hundred jail calls. We said we I think we all knew that we have something special here..

"But in this case, you know, knowledge is that he failed miserably in. And and then he sends them off to the patriots. He didn't send him off the patriots grab them in the patriots. Don't cover their selves and glory with this at all either. I mean, they had chances to make a difference. They didn't and the news media at self. We have the the the guy who was covering football for the Boston Globe says, hey, what if I what if I had really exposed this. Well, what if I had said, you know, our internet is involved with these these criminals and off the field, and what would that have caused the patriots take action would what he tried to straighten his life out. I don't know. There are just so many people who could have made a difference and didn't because it's so football Incas sense. With the game goes on. And these players are just come oddities, and and they're discardable and in this sense, he was certainly discarded because after his arrest. Everybody a raised him. Nobody wanted to have anything to do with him anymore. In fact, they wouldn't even speak his name in some cases down in Gillette stadium that had such an impact in this series. Because in episode one you hear Aaron saying, you get changed by the patriot way and by episode for he's gone. You used the phrase erasing Aaron which really choked me up. Even though we already knew he had done these vicious things. And does that make you really cynical about all this team talk of family and football in? Well, it certainly does makes you cynical. It makes you realize that it's a business. And that as I said, these these guys are are pieces in a puzzle. They're not they'll they bring them in. And they wrote they roll them right out as fast as they bring them in. If they are not up to their standards, and the they they don't. Have guaranteed contracts, and they they're just they're tossed aside. If they they aren't doing the job they'll be gone in an instant. So it's a harsh life for the for the guys up on the top. They make great money and have great lives. But even those guys are facing the risk of of early death and difficult lives because of the brain damage they may suffer. You know, when I hear you reporting that craft says, he was duped, and that Bella check in the locker room after the arrest said, we will never speak again, it really just was heartbreaking and removing a brick in Florida and taking the plaque off the wall and his Bristol high school. It's just awful when as you line up all of those details, just incredibly tragic. Yeah. And I think is I think he feels it. I think from we can tell from the jail calls that he feels that you know, when he when he learns it is high school basketball coach who became the principal of Bristol central high school ordered all his all his awards, and it's plaques removed from the high school, you can tell he's stunned. You know? Tell felonies he's hard. This is a guy who we have text of him. He's texting this guy this coach while he was while he was in the last month of his freedom before he was arrested. So it's it's got to be hard for him. And of course, the family to see the ratio of is about everything he'd accomplished in his life. Every year you tell yourself you're going to start.

"What's the price you the most in your reporting? Liz, we were surprised to learn that Aaron was grappling with his sexuality at a very early age by six grade. He was involved with a boy who named NS San Souci who would become his high school quarterback. And he lived in a house where his father was incredibly, homophobic. And you know, one thing we learned was that Aaron wanted to be a cheerleader at a young age. He admired his his female cousins who are cheerleaders. They wanted. He wanted to be like them and his father. We learned really quickly put an end to that. And was constantly calling him bad things. You know, we have this impression of him being sort of growing up in this is Ian, Harriet life that was sort of the narrative that the grew out of his death that, you know, wants his father died when he was only sixteen that everything fell apart because his father was such such a positive influence in his life. But in fact, his father, you know, savagely beat him. A child, and and that that was shocking to us in some ways, and the fact that he also was sexually molested as a young boy, you know, you learn all these things about this guy, you didn't know about and what those kinds of things can do to form a person's character, and how they grow and just went on and on with what we learned from his childhood all the way through you know, from his agent, you know, seeing seeing him have a gun at a young age and being aware of serious allegations against him and never reporting them, and then the patriots role in the prison systems role. And just one surprise after another really, you know to me the phone calls from the Suffolk County jail where incredibly compelling, Bob. And you know at times, he actually seems happy and satisfied being in jail. Right. Proud of how Nita Sal is. And then other times he's convinced. He's going to be found not guilty and get out. What was it like for you in the team? The first time you heard those calls, and how'd you get those calls anyway? So. So we got those calls. Thanks to Todd Wallich. Our public records specialist. He's he's he's a master at getting obstructionists institutions that come forward with their with records. So he got those those jail calls for us. And it was it was it was again very revealing day in and day out all four of us on the team as well. As our editor. Patty went went through those calls and listen to them for hours, and hours and hours. I think we have I think close to a hundred hours maybe of of calls, and and as you mentioned, you know, you you get the tender side of Erin, you know, the loving father cooing do is daughter and telling her he'll be there forever for her. And and then you get the you get the street thug side of Aaron talking to was his former guys Iran with in college and through the strip clubs and all that world and on the street. So you see both sides of the chameleon in him. And then, you know, talking with his brother is mother is friends. It's just and a lot of the revelations in there, just you know, we we could go on and know run these GL calls forever. And people would be fascinated. I think, you know, are there of the story that are still a mystery to you like what's at the top of your list of things you want to continue to dig into the biggest mystery to me is why he killed himself.

The motive for this murder was a perceived disrespect over drink being spill that's prosecutor Patrick Hagan few believe Alexander, Bradley, and even the corroborating evidence from some of the other bouncers in the club that Aaron Hernandez had this propensity to be almost snap at the drop of a hat, and that he would be paranoid and think people were in his words trying him. I don't know anyone other than Alexander Bradley who witnessed a spilled drink. That's defense attorney Jose Baez again, none of the surviving. Cape. Verdeans saw. That no one in the club saw that not a single person were they able to find that came forward and said, yeah, I saw somebody spilled drink on Aaron Hernandez says Bradley cut a deal with prosecutors to save himself from murder charges and that the story about a spill drink was made up.

But who was who police found that car a year later in Bristol in the garage of Hernandez cousin Tana singleton? So the question for the jury wasn't whether Hernandez was in the car that seemed obvious, but whether he was the one who actually fired the gun, my colleague at the globe. Travis Anderson covered that second trial. He said broadly came with some obvious problems as a key witness Alexander, Bradley, also, of course, had a very lengthy crew.

You know, you know, suggesting I've got I've got people, you know, who who can take you out that kind of thing talked about the guns the arsenal that sort of thing.

We were angry not because we thought that it would have a material affect on the facts of the case. But number one angry that they were going to try to turn this case into a circus and number two how wrong it was legally aside from morally in my opinion to try to use this as a way to try to convict someone Hernandez's defense team felt they had to warn his fiancee. This could happen and Hernandez was upset. His concern. Always was. What the impact on somebody who he loved and who truly loved him and had stood by him all these years and. How her she would be?

"Listen to note this episode contains some adult language in themes. Before Aaron Hernandez became a star in the NFL before he was on trial for murder. He was a kid growing up in Bristol, Connecticut, Jeff Morgan coached, his high school football team. He was wide receiver at that time his first year, you know, he was unbelievably fast and the body on him. It was almost like had the body of a senior. He really wasn't a freshman. Morgan was an assistant coach at Bristol central during Aaron Hernandez, freshman and sophomore seasons, and he was a self-described disciplinarian. And my flat fee was though swearing on a field in Hernandez, a sophomore year. He broke that rule. And like I said, that was a no, no, in my book on the field. So I told him immediately won't practices over me on the hill. All the players knew what that meant. The hill was next to the school be ordered to run that bluff was a pretty typical punishment. And when practice was over all the other players went in. And they were laughing at him and he took off his helmet and the shoulder pads, and he got on his knees and he said, please coach don't make me run. That's when Morgan pulled out his cell phone. I said, you don't start running. I'm calling your father. So then he took off up the hill. To coach it showed respect, Hernandez, father seems strict. Well, I believe is father was hard on him because he wanted him and his brother tech sellin sports. He stayed on him as far as his school work because he wanted him to have good grades, Aaron respected his father. But there were warning signs that this was something altogether more serious. I know one time he went to a senior dance as a freshman, and I guess he was drinking before he went to the dance and they throw them out of the dance at the school. And then the next time we saw him ill like that. I guess his father did discipline him some more than some. He had a black eye. I'm assuming that's where that came from in a call from jail later in life, Aaron Hernandez remembered his volatile home, grew up in a household full of fucking arguing plenty of light or that. Hernandez home, violent, physical abuse was a frightening fact of life. From the Boston Globe in wonder, I'm Bob holder in this gladiator, investigative series about Aaron Hernandez and football Inc. This is episode to Ryssdal. Bristol, Connecticut, just two hours. Crystal, Connecticut is a former industrial city in the middle of the state, not far from Hartford. It's now a middle class suburb with a rich sports history, Babe, Ruth and such page played there, and it's home to the world headquarters of ESPN. It's also where Aaron Hernandez was born and grew up my spotlight colleague, Beth Healy picks up the story. Jonathan Hernandez says his parents always wanted him in Aaron to be a part of Bristol's sports history. Aaron's older brother and his only sibling. Jonathan has a book coming out. It's called the truth about Aaron any shares for the first time, new details about what it was like growing up in their family. My mom. If it's not for sports, you're to be going to that community. College football was a ticket to something bigger. Better than that. And you look at options at that age, you're committed what your parents are into. In many ways. Jonathan and Aaron looked up to their father. Dennis, Dennis Hernandez was a star athlete at Bristol, central high school in the nineteen seventies the same school. Jonathan Aaron would go on to attend. Many people still new dentist by the nickname he earned in highschool. They called him the king. Dennis had grown up in a working class family with Puerto Rican roots and earned a scholarship to play football at the university of Connecticut. It was supposed to be a way to a better life, but Dennis Hernandez did not finish college in nineteen seventy seven. One of his football friends broken a house, gut caught and his accomplice ended up shooting a police officer while Dennis was not involved in the burglary or the shooting. He later admitted that he had tried to help the shooter flee the scene. He was never charged with anything, but he dropped out of Yukon. Then this went back to Bristol and became known around the city. For his charisma, the king was charming generous, gregarious people said, fatherhood, made him a better man. He settled into domestic life in a small ranch style house on a tree lined street with his wife. Terri, a school secretary Dennis became a janitor at the other high school in town, but he still lived on the edge. He would stay out late drinking with friends. When Aaron was three, Dennis was arrested for legendary trying to buy cocaine from an undercover officer. Jonathan Hernandez says his father instilled in the boys, a love of sports, and a lot of fear play in the little Fisher Price basketball and thinking of the little, you know, makeshift. Who my dad made with, you know, yarn in a paper bag from stop and shop playing in the three. In one hockey, you know, the three in one set flip it over. It's an ice hockey thing, and. I have a one stick because we were getting chased by her father about to get abuse. It was Aaron and Jonathan together in the house throughout their lives. People would sometimes mistake them for each other when they were younger, Jonathan recalls Aaron with spike up his hair like a porcupine and you have these, like these doubles that just really. Look like how his cheeks for missing because his dimples were so caved in so far. It was just an e just really just brightened up my day.
