NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. - The more than $115,000 in back taxes owed on the Massachusetts home that once belonged to former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez have been paid.
The tax collector in North Attleborough tells The Sun Chronicle that Hernandez's estate paid $60,000 toward the lien in December while the new owners of the home paid the remaining $55,000 last month.
Hernandez bought the home for $1.3 million in 2012. It was sold in November for $1 million.
Court records also show $500,000 from the sale was placed into escrow while a judge determines if it should go to the Hernandez's daughter.
Hernandez was serving a life sentence for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd when he hanged himself in prison in April days after his acquittal in a double slaying.
