Bubblicious pops up as possible key evidence in Aaron Hernandez case

During Aaron Hernandez's arraignment Wednesday, the prosecution revealed what seemed to be a lot of circumstantial evidence that allegedly links Hernandez to the slaying of Odin Lloyd. That circumstantial evidence included one possible key piece of evidence: Bubblicious bubble gum.
Blue cotton candy Bubblicious bubble gum to be exact.
The prosecution mentioned Bubblicious twice by name on Wednesday and there's a reason.
On the night of Lloyd's death, the prosecution alleges Hernandez stopped at a gas station driving a rented silver Nissan Altima to buy gas, "blue cotton candy Bubblicious gum" and some Black and Mild cigars.
According to the prosecution, Hernandez and others with him eventually traded in the rented Altima for another rented car. After the Altima was returned, an attendant at the rental car station did a routine cleanup of the car and found two interesting items under the driver's seat: a .45-caliber shell casing and a piece of chewed bubble gum.
The shell casing was same caliber used to kill Lloyd and the gum appeared to be the same flavor of Bubblicious gum Hernandez had purchased earlier in the evening.
The prosecution does not yet have the weapon that killed Lloyd, which means a piece of Bubblicious bubble gum could become one of the most important pieces of evidence in the case.
