Aaron Hernandez went from being a football star to a convicted killer. However, what was it that sparked violent behavior within the notorious athlete? His new docuseries explores just that.
Netflix’s documentary series Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez explores the unbridled life of the athlete and what drove him towards such extreme measures of violence.
The docuseries by the streaming giant comes as an extension of the documentary My Perfect World: The Aaron Hernandez Story released in 2018 and directed by Geno McDermott.
Spanning over three parts, the series narrates the NFL star’s success and swift decline with interviews, trial footage and conversations with former friends and family disclosing what could have possibly led to the violent behavior.
Hernandez had grown up with a strict father with whom he shared his love for football. He was charged with the murder of his fiancée’s sister’s boyfriend Odin Lloyd back in 2013.
Hernandez attempted suicide two years later by hanging himself in his prison cell following his acquittal of a separate double homicide.
