Want a chance to buy Aaron Hernandez’s home? You can, especially now since the North Attleborough home is back on the market after an agreement to sell it fell through.
The estate of the former NFL player and convicted murdered has seen a recent surge in value. According to the Boston Herald, a 401(k) plan valued at about $167,000 and another account totaling $50,000 have been added to the total value.
Neither account has a named beneficiary.
According to the Boston Herald, Attorney George Leontire said the sale was unsuccessful because the potential buyers, “didn’t want to have a lot of publicity.”
Hernandez purchased the North Attleborough home in 2012 for $1.3 million dollars.
Hernandez’s estate faces multiple wrongful death lawsuits, meaning that the money earned from any sale would go to paying off those damages.
Leontire explained to the Boston Herald, “Frankly, I told all these plaintiffs that we need to sit down and try to—whatever assets we come up with—try and find a way to deal with this, because with all these various actions pending, the estate’s got to pay a lawyer to defend against them, to settle them, whatever.”
Hernandez hung himself in prison in April, soon after being acquitted of a double murder charge. He was in jail serving a life sentence for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd.
