Arrest Warrant Issued For Patriots’ Aaron Hernandez

Arrest Warrant Issued For Patriots' Aaron HernandezNew England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez reportedly has an arrest warrant issued for obstruction of justice.

‘Smashed intentionally’

ABC News’ Michele McPhee provides an interesting update on the state of Hernandez’s security system and cell phone:

The investigator, and other law enforcement sources, confirmed that the security system—which included video surveillance—was smashed intentionally… And a cell phone used by Hernandez was handed over to investigators “in pieces” by his attorneys, the sources said.

A law enforcement source told FOX 25 Wednesday night Hernandez appears to be directly tied to the homicide of Odin Lloyd… FOX 25′s Bob Ward’s sources have confirmed that there is video evidence of Hernandez and two other men wearing hooded sweatshirts walking into Hernandez’s home within minutes of neighbors hearing gunshots… Just about an hour before Hernandez was caught on video walking into his home, Hernandez was seen at Lloyd’s home in Dorchester.


‘Paper warrant’

A source told FOX 25′s Bob Ward that the warrant, for obstruction of justice, was issued early Friday morning. The source says the warrant is what is known as a “paper warrant.” State Police are not executing it for the time being. If the warrant were entered into the system, any police officer could immediately arrest Hernandez.

Police reportedly developed an interest in questioning Hernandez after a rental car became an integral piece of evidence in the murder of a 27-year-old Boston man, whose body was found on Monday within a mile of Hernandez’s home. It’s unclear whether he was murdered in that location or dropped there.

Patriots’ Aaron Hernandez Questioned In Homicide Investigation

Patriots' Aaron Hernandez Questioned In Homicide InvestigationNew England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was reportedly questioned by North Attleboro, Mass., police on Monday as part of an ongoing investigation of a possible murder that took place near his home.

‘Integral piece of evidence’

Police reportedly developed an interest in questioning Hernandez after a rental car became an integral piece of evidence in the murder of a 27-year-old Boston man, whose body was found on Monday within a mile of Hernandez’s home. It’s unclear whether he was murdered in that location or dropped there.

Police are currently working with Enterprise, the vehicle’s leaser, to dust the vehicle for fingerprints and check for other evidence. Thamel and Bedard’s Report notes that a source close to the investigation has said Hernandez’s name is tied to the rental car. It’s unclear whether Hernandez himself rented the car or not.


‘Uncooperative’

ABC News’ Michele McPhee reported that the man murdered, who was unidentified as of publication, is an “associate” of Hernandez’s. ABC News also found out that Hernandez has been uncooperative with police since the investigation began, while Thamel and Bedard have reported the New England tight end has consulted an attorney in the case.

The Patriots organization has refrained from commenting on the investigation. A source close to Hernandez has confirmed that Hernandez did speak with investigators this week, but his representation refused to comment on the matter when contacted by Sports Illustrated.

How do you think is Aaron Hernandez involved in this homicide probe? And how will this affect his NFL career?
