Prosecutors said in court documents released Friday that former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez discussed the Odin Lloyd murder in jailhouse phone calls, speaking in code and referencing a car that is part of the investigation.

They filed a motion Thursday to obtain records of the former NFL star’s telephone conversations after officials from the Bristol County Sheriff’s Department provided them with details about the content of the calls.

Hernandez, accused of Lloyd’s execution-style shooting death, has been imprisoned in Massachusetts since he was arrested and charged with murder in June. Lloyd, a resident of Dorchester, Mass., was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancée. His bullet-ridden body was found blocks from the former Patriot’s mansion in North Attleboro, Mass.

Hernandez’s inmate phone records include conversations the Bristol, Conn., native had with individuals charged in the case and others, according to prosecutors. They say Hernandez spoke in “coded messages” while on the phone with people outside of jail. The court papers also say Hernandez referenced “related prior offenses.”

Hernandez is also being investigated as a suspect in a drive-by shooting that killed two men in Boston in 2012. Boston detectives re-opened their investigation last summer after receiving a tip that the same person responsible for Lloyd’s death also was involved in the double homicide.
