Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez to be Questioned

Playoffs

Hall of Fame
Hmmm...
ABC News reports that Hernandez has been "uncooperative" with police, who refer to the deceased as an "associate" of Hernandez. Bedard reported via his Twitter feed that police blocked off the driveway to Hernandez's home, and that two males (neither of whom was Hernandez) were taken away by police after they attempted to leave the house and questioned why the driveway was blocked.

A platoon of state police detectives are inside and outside the North Attleboro home of Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez tonight following multiple reports the star football player is being questioned about a possible murder at a nearby industrial park.

The Bristol District Attorney’s Office tells the Herald a witness reported finding a body in an industrial park at about 5:30 p.m. yesterday. The industrial park is located about a half mile away from the sprawling Hernandez home.

Flash photography lit up the home tonight while state police officers searched the road outside the player's home along the road leading up to the industrial park.

SI.com — the website for Sports Illustrated — reports today state police have spoken to Hernandez about the murder of a Boston man. The star tight end is not considered a suspect, multiple reports state.

The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro is also reporting a rented 2013 Chevrolet Suburban could be connected to the killing. Reports state that car may have been rented under Hernandez's name.

State police are now at the player's front door, on his driveway and inside the home.

Was watching the local news just now and they said a car rented in Hernandezs name was found abandoned near the body but he is still not a suspect.



I have a feeling if it was any of us we would already be the number 1 suspect but I will wait until more details come out until I get to pissed about celebs getting special treatment.

The path for Tebow to be the #1 TE in week 1 has now be shown. For it is he, who is good to his children.

Either conflicting or overriding information regarding the bolded portion:
WBZ-TV in Boston reported Wednesday that, according to a law enforcement source, Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez "has not been ruled out as a suspect" in a homicide case near his home. Hernandez is connected to the case through a vehicle rented in his name that is reportedly a key piece of evidence, according to SI.com. An ABC News report said Hernandez was initially uncooperative with police.

I think he's getting himself "ruled back in" as a suspect, as an accomplice to whoever the guys are who were staying in his house & using his rental car that has gone missing. Or maybe to the girlfriend's sister.

...a jogger found the body of a man in an industrial park near Hernandez’s home.

The man was identified by his family Wednesday as 27-year-old Odin Lloyd of Dorchester.

A neighbor of Odin’s told WBZ they had seen Hernandez in the neighborhood and that Odin dated the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend.
...
The man who made the grisly discovery did not want to be identified, but described what he found.

“I saw an African-American male, probably 25-35 years old, decently dressed,” the man told WBZ-TV. “He was stiff motionless, one of the police officers came back later and said it looked the guy had been shot somewhere else and dumped here.”

Geez, this isn't getting any better...
No - it's not. While this is a separate incident, if anything, it makes things appear worse.
Now Hernandez will reportedly be facing a lawsuit stemming from a February incident where he allegedly shot a man in the face, according to TMZ. Sports Illustrated has also confirmed the existence of the lawsuit.

According to TMZ, the man filing the lawsuit, Alexander Bradley, claims he went to a club in Miami with Hernandez on Feb. 13 and at some point, an argument broke out between the two men.

Hernandez is beginning to look like a stone criminal...

Hernandez and Bradley left the club in the same car, where the argument continued. At some point during the car ride, Hernandez allegedly aimed a gun at Bradley and the gun discharged, hitting Bradley in the face, according to the report.

Bradley claims to have suffered several injuries, including the loss of his right eye. The lawsuit also claims Bradley has had to undergo major reconstructive surgery to his face. Bradley is seeking more than $100,000 in damages.

There's possibly more bad news for Hernandez too: Bradley says Hernandez is not licensed to carry a firearm.

The lawsuit was filed in Florida in on June 13, but then dropped four days later due to a paperwork issue. Bradley's legal team is expected to refile the suit on Wednesday, according to TMZ.

I don't know if he was actually the one to pull the trigger, but I do think he had something to do with it.

Lloyd was a linebacker for the Boston Bandits, a semi-pro football team. He last practiced with them on Saturday. The Bandits are made up of former high school and college football players. Lloyd went to the O’Bryant School of Math and Science.

Well considering that it looks like he may have gotten away with allegedly shooting someone a few months ago he probably was feeling invincible. I knew that he liked to smoke a little weed in college, but he's pulling some Rae Carruth type stuff possibly here.

Too soon so make final judgments but I have a feeling some pretty crazy details are gonna start to trickle out.

Tebow doesn't know it yet, but he was scouted specifically to fill the anticipated TE void. I expect Billichek to have a "heart to heart" with him sooner than later. "We'll still let you pretend you are a QB, capisce?":kitten:

I've heard LZ say on his show that the pre-draft rap on Hernandez was that he was a "marijuana enthusiast."
Which could be a euphemism for dealer.


On June 13, a Hernandez acquaintance, Alexander S. Bradley, filed a civil complaint against Hernandez in U.S. District Court alleging that a gun -- in Hernandez's possession illegally -- discharged and shot Bradley in the face, causing the loss of his right eye. The suit alleges Hernandez and Bradley argued at Tootsie's strip club in Miami. The gun discharged while Hernandez, Bradley and other associates were returning from Miami to Palm Beach.
...
Hernandez fell to the fourth round of the 2010 draft in part because of marijuana use while with the Gators, something he admitted to NFL teams at the scouting combine when he was a draft prospect, according to several NFL sources.

Personnel sources from multiple NFL teams tell SI that they had off-field concerns about Hernandez. In particular, the questions pertained to alleged gang activity of some of Hernandez's associates in his native Bristol, Conn. A law enforcement official familiar with Hernandez reiterated concerns about his circle of influence.

Combined, the marijuana use and gang concerns worried some NFL teams immensely.

"There were a lot of teams that had him off the board," said an NFL personnel executive.
Independently, both a former and current New England teammate said that they believed Hernandez was having some trouble with his past associates and was seeking distance from them. Bristol, Conn. is just a two hour drive to Hernandez's home.

"It was a thug life," is how one teammate described some of Hernandez's friends.

He can use some of that $40 million the Pats gave him to buy his way out of this.

Yeah...I didn't know anything about Hernandez, but the first time I saw those TD celebrations my spidey senses went off...

I knew he was at least a little bit on the edgy side, but I didn't realize how much until this all happened...

Reports conflict on whether Aaron Hernandez is set to be arrested

Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez's role in the death of a 27-year-old man is significant enough that he "likely" will be arrested for his connection in the case, Sports Illustrated is reporting.

Meanwhile, Boston Globe political reporter Wesley Lowery reports that police currently are NOT planning to arrest Hernandez.

NO ARREST IMMINENT in murder investigation involving Aaron Hernandez. All other reports (currently) "absolutely untrue," per state police

— Wesley Lowery (@WesleyLowery) June 20, 2013
Not saying an arrest won't happen, or that one won't happen today. But reporting Hernandez "will be arrested" is speculative.

— Wesley Lowery (@WesleyLowery) June 20, 2013
According to SI, it's not yet known what charges Hernandez will face, but his connection to the deceased has been linked by police. Reportedly, Hernandez and 27-year-old Odin Lloyd were together at a bar, along with two others, the night Lloyd died. Lloyd's body was found in a field close to Hernandez's home.

SI also reported that a Jets fan confronted Hernandez in Providence in May and that police found a gun under a car, though it's unclear whose gun it was. SI also writes that Gainesville, Fla., police interviewed Hernandez in 2007 regarding a shooting that occurred after a Florida-Auburn game, though Hernandez was not considered a suspect.

There was also a report from Tuesday in which a man named Alexander Bradley was set to sue Hernandez for allegedly shooting him in the face and causing him to lose an eye.

No matter what's going on here, does anybody really have any doubt that
Hernandez is starting the season opener and playing the whole year in NE ?
Any legal problems will be shoved into the 2013-14 offseason.

We're going to find out that Lloyd made moves on Hernandez's girlfriend. Hernandez was so upset he threw his phone at the security system, breaking both, then uncontrollably peed and defecated all over the house...........of course, he needed the house scrubbed by a team of experts. It would be embarrassing to have to explain the smells.:kitten:

Hernandez destroys phone, home security system and also hired maids to scrub entire house..

http://abcnews.go.com/US/aaron-hernandez-destroyed-home-security-system-phone-sources/story?id=19445131#.UcNHkZx6_PT
Police plan to go back to the home of New England Patriot's tight end Aaron Hernandez today with another warrant based on evidence that "he destroyed his home security system,'' an investigator close to the case told ABC News.

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.

Police also want to know why a team of house cleaners were hired on Monday to scrub Hernandez's mansion, sources told ABC News.

The revelations come as multiple sources tell ABC News that the star NFL player has not been ruled out as a suspect in the murder of a semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, 27, who was Hernandez's friend....
Consciousness of guilt? ... or just decided to dip his mansion in bleach for cleanliness sake? :hmmm:

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez always seemed to be around trouble, even when he played for the Florida Gators.
Hernandez has not been ruled out as a suspect in the execution-style murder of a semi-pro football player, law enforcement sources told ABC News on Thursday.

When Hernandez was at UF, he was once questioned, along with three other Gator football players, about a shooting in Gainesville. None of the players were arrested, but detectives questioned Hernandez in the shootings of Corey Smith and Justin Glass about 2:30 a.m. after Florida lost to Auburn in 2007. According to a Sentinel report at the time, police said Smith, 28, and Glass, 19, were driving around in traffic about 2:30 a.m. when a man began shooting into their car. Smith was critically wounded in the head while Glass was shot in the arm.

Hernandez declined to discuss the case with reporters back then and was never charged with any crime.

However, when Hernandez first enrolled at UF, he was arrested as a 17-year-old juvenile after an altercation at local campus hangout known as The Swamp. Hernandez received deferred prosecution.

He may be guilty, but he isn't stupid.
Yeah, nothing says "I'm innocent" more than destroying evidence.

And nothing says "I'm planning for the future" more than signing a $40 million dollar contract then involving yourself in a homicide.

Yeah, there may be reason or maybe he has a smart friend advising him now. Couldn't be his lawyer advising him to destroy evidence. :cool:

Sorry to everyone else, but destroying evidence is smart. Public opinion doesn't put you in prison...evidence does. And even if he gets in trouble for doing it, I am pretty sure getting convicted of destroying stuff is preferable to getting convicted for murder.

I think he's extremely dumb to constantly find himself in these positions. No different than a lot of players that come from the hood. If he was smart he would've found a way to avoid his boys.

But I get what you're saying on the evidence though. Don't think its gonna keep him out of jail though if he's guilty. Or maybe I've watched way too many episodes of Forensic Files.

Not a chance. Goodell won't let him play while this is out there. Morality clause will also gets Pats off-the-hook for much of that salary (unsure on the cap).

True, but only if all these acts were inadmissible in court. (Not only that, but you've shown authorities what / where to look) It'll sure play like a pattern to a jury though.

In general I'm with you though, as in the long run it might've been the wiser choice.
