IAMA: Members of The Boston Globe Spotlight Team who just published a series and podcast on Aaron Hernandez, star Patriots player who was convicted of murder
Hello, we are Beth Healy and Andrew Ryan, investigative reporters with The Boston Globe's renowned Spotlight Team.
Our team has just published an explosive investigation and podcast about Aaron Hernandez, the star Patriots tight end who was convicted of murder and later died from suicide in prison. The series uncovers a lot of never-before-seen details about Hernandez's troubled past and explores a system that turned a blind eye to the warning signs, including the NFL.
