The jurors told 7News that they were contacted by another juror, who said a bus ride to the funeral would be provided by Hernandez’s attorney Jose Baez.

A source confirmed that the jurors were invited after a juror called Baez’s office and expressed interest in attending the funeral, saying others were interested as well. As a result, their names were added to a private guest list for the funeral.

No members of the jury attended the funeral, ultimately opting to decline the invitation.
