    Default Aaron Hernandez, Patriot, tied to homicide and sued for shooting asst.

    Aaron Hernandez, Tangled in Murder Probe, Also Sued for Shooting Friend - ABC News

    With Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez reportedly connected to the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd in Massachusetts and with police serving him with a search warrant on Tuesday and investigating his home, a law enforcement official tells Fox 25 in Boston that “Hernandez appears to be directly tied to the homicide.”

    ABC News reports police are back at Hernandez's home Thursday with a search warrant, and they want the answer to a few questions, including the following:

    • Why the home's security system (including video surveillance) was intentionally destroyed.


    • Why Hernandez's cell phone was "in pieces" when his attorneys gave it to investigators.


    • Why house cleaners were hired Monday to scrub the house.

    So, what does this all mean?
    "[Hernandez] has not been ruled out. We are not calling him a suspect, but he is definitely not in the clear," a police official close to the investigation told ABC News.
    Meanwhile, the CBS affiliate in Boston reports that the Bristol County district attorney's office is looking for a silver mirror cover connected to the death and that it “is believed to have been broken off a vehicle.”
    A rental car that was rented in Hernandez's name reportedly has emerged as a key piece of evidence in this case.
    Arrest imminent?Reports conflict on whether TE is about to be arrested Hernandez reportedly has been uncooperative with police, hiring a lawyer and not talking to law enforcement officials at all. But after they searched his home on Tuesday, they removed a large box. Police returned to the home for another search on Wednesday, but nobody was home.
    According to Fox 25, Hernandez and Lloyd were together at a bar on the night of Lloyd's death along with two other men. Fox 25 writes, “it is unclear where the car went or what happened during the ride [home], but according to the source only three men returned to Hernandez's home at the end of the night and Lloyd was not one of them.”
    Lloyd, shot in the head, later was found in a field close to Hernandez's home. Lloyd had reportedly been dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend.
    In a statement released Wednesday, Hernandez's attorney, Michael Fee, said, “It has been widely reported in the media that the state police have searched the home of our client, Aaron Hernandez, as part of an ongoing investigation. Out of respect for that process, neither we nor Aaron will have any comment about the substance of that investigation until it has come to a conclusion.”
    As of Thursday morning, no arrests had been made in connection to the case, according to the Boston Globe. But at least one news helicopter trailed Hernandez on Thursday morning during his commute to Patriots headquarters.

    Aaron Hernandez, Tangled in Murder Probe, Also Sued for Shooting Friend - ABC News


    New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who is caught in the middle of a homicide investigation of an "associate," is also being sued by a former friend who claims Hernandez shot his eye out after the two left a Miami strip club.
    The suit states that Hernandez "possessed a gun which he was not legally licensed to have."
    In a lawsuit filed in federal court on June 13, attorneys representing Alexander Bradley, 32, said that their client, Hernandez and several others were at Tootsie's strip club in Miami on Feb. 13 when Bradley and Hernandez got into an argument. The group then left the club, and while driving towards Palm Beach, Fla., Hernandez's gun discharged inside the vehicle.
    "It fired, and a bullet went through my client's arm and blew out his right eye," attorney David Jaroslawicz told ABCNews.com. "It has been enucleated -- replaced with a prosthetic eye. He has also lost use of his right arm."
    The lawyer said that "to my knowledge" no charges were filed as a result of the shooting.
    A spokesman for the Miami-Dade Police Department said, "The Miami-Dade Police Department does not have any documented incident on record. We will continue to research the incident, and as with any developing situation, the details may change."
    Jaroslawicz said that the suit was voluntarily discontinued because language describing the injuries was incorrect. It was being refiled today, he said.

    Bradley has done personal assistant work for Hernandez, according to Jaroslawicz. He did not disclose the amount of damages sought in the suit, but said that Bradley has had four surgeries so far and anticipates two or three more.
    Massachusetts State Police, who searched Hernandez's home Tuesday night, executed a search warrant today for an Enterprise rental car that was leased by Hernandez. The car was left near where the body of Odin Lloyd, 27, who was found Monday evening with a gunshot wound to the head.
    The body was discovered in a clearing near John Dietsch Boulevard, less than a mile from Hernandez's $1.3 million, 5,600-square foot home in North Attleborough, Mass.
    Police spent hours at Hernandez's home Tuesday night, taking evidence photos and removing boxes. Another search was conducted of a car parked in Hernandez's driveway, a 2012 Chrysler 200 LX. The license plate connected that car to an Enterprise rental in Hernandez's name, several law enforcement sources told ABC News.
    A third enterprise rental car registered to Hernandez was recovered at a Boston Enterprise rental location. Last night, police were looking for this car, one of several that was registered to the football player, and intend to search it as well, sources said.
    "Someone dropped it off yesterday," a law enforcement source told ABC News. "Last night a BOLO [be on the lookout bulletin] was issued to all police for that vehicle, a silver Chevy. It has been recovered."
    Police could be seen today searching the woods and front yards of homes stretching from the scene of the crime to Hernandez's house. A gun was found in the search, but ballistic tests discounted it as the weapon that killed Lloyd, sources said.
    Lloyd was a linebacker for a semi-pro team called the Boston Bandits. Suffolk County District Attorney Jake Wark told ABC News that Lloyd had one arrest in 2008, a misdemeanor charge stemming from a fight

    I've been following this a bit because my SO is always watching something that has to do with football. This is just a sad story. This guy is throwing his entire life away and for what?? What a loser. Can't leave the old "buddies" and past behind? Sad all around.

    Investigators will put the squeeze on the others that were there. The one who talks first and gives up the goods will get the deal. Eventually, someone will cave.

    Default Patriots' Aaron Hernandez handcuffed, taken into police custody

    NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. — The Patriots' Aaron Hernandez has been taken into custody by police at his home.

    Hernandez, wearing red shorts and sneakers, was led out from the home handcuffed, his arms inside a white V-neck white T-shirt and behind his back, and placed in the back seat of a police cruiser.

    Seven officers were present for the arrest, which was confirmed by Massachusetts State Police. It was not immediately known what charges Hernandez is facing. The Bristol County District Attorney's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from USA TODAY Sports.

    PHOTOS: Hernandez being led away

    Hernandez has been at the center of a police investigation into the homicide of Odin Lloyd.

    The body of Lloyd, 27, a semipro football player, was found on June 17 in an industrial park by a nighttime jogger, about a half-mile from Hernandez's home. Police ruled the death a homicide, and Lloyd's family members said Lloyd, who was shot in the head, and Hernandez were friends who had been together the previous day.

    ABC News has reported that Hernandez destroyed his cellphone and video surveillance system and had his home professionally cleaned the day Lloyd's body was found. And Massachusetts State Police have twice searched Hernandez's home, along with nearby woods and a pond.

    On Saturday, police swarmed Hernandez's home with investigators and two police dogs for nearly four hours. They concentrated on the house, a large playhouse in the back yard that Hernandez uses as a doghouse, nearby woods and Hernandez's white SUV, which was parked in the driveway. Investigators left with approximately a dozen bags.

    They returned to Hernandez's upscale neighborhood Monday, when two divers in scuba gear checked a nearby pond before the team scoured densely wooded areas with metal detectors. According to one member of the six-man search team, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the case, investigators found no evidence during the hourlong search.

    On Tuesday, all records related to the investigation were impounded by court order.

    Lloyd's mother, Ursula Ward, declined comment to The Associated Press at her Boston home Wednesday morning.

    "Nothing to say, please. Thank you," she said, before shutting the door.

    The Patriots drafted Hernandez out of Florida in 2010. Since then, he has combined with Rob Gronkowski to form one of the top tight end duos in the NFL. He missed 10 games last season with an ankle injury and had shoulder surgery in April but is expected to be ready for training camp. Last summer, the Patriots gave Hernandez a five-year contract worth $40 million, but he could forfeit most of the money if he is incarcerated or suspended by the league because of any involvement in the crime.

    Last week another man from Connecticut filed a civil lawsuit in Florida saying Hernandez shot him in the face in February, causing him to lose an eye; he is seeking damages in excess of $100,000.

    In the complaint filed by attorneys for 30-year-old Alexander S. Bradley, Hernandez is accused of shooting Bradley in the face while the two were in a vehicle early Feb. 13 after a night of partying at a strip club in Miami.

    According to the complaint and a police report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office obtained by USA TODAY Sports, Bradley lost his right eye and has lost much of the use of his right arm. He said he needed further surgeries and experienced pain and difficulty eating and was requesting damages in excess of $100,000.

    Bradley refused to cooperate with the police investigation, giving only a vague description of "black and Hispanic" men that shot him. When he wouldn't speak any further with investigators, the case was deemed inactive, and it will not be reopened without Bradley's cooperation

    Hernandez's relationship with Bradley is unclear, though both are from Connecticut, with their hometowns located about 20 miles apart. Bradley was convicted of selling drugs in 2006 and spent 18 months in jail.

    Bradley's lawsuit was initially filed four days before Lloyd's death in Massachusetts.

    Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez arrested; team drops him


    New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was taken out of his home in handcuffs more than a week after a body was found near his Massachusetts home.

    By Elizabeth Chuck, Staff Writer, NBC News
    New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested Wednesday morning, more than a week after a body was found near his home in Massachusetts.
    Hernandez, 23, was placed in handcuffs and put in a police cruiser just before 9 a.m. on Wednesday by Massachusetts State Police and North Attleborough police. Authorities have searched his home, on the Rhode Island line not far from the Patriots' stadium, several times over the past week.
    Formal charges have not yet been filed. It was unclear why Hernandez was taken into custody.
    Bristol County District Attorney Samuel Sutter confirmed in a statement that Hernandez would be arraigned later Wednesday at Attleboro District Court.
    Less than two hours after the arrest, the Patriots announced they were releasing Hernandez."A young man was murdered last week and we extend our sympathies to the family and friends who mourn his loss. Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation. We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do," a statement from the team read.The Patriots drafted Hernandez in 2010. Last summer, the team gave Hernandez a five-year contract that is worth $40 million, including a signing bonus of $12.5 million.The body of Odin Lloyd, 27, was found June 17 about one mile away from the tight end's North Attleborough home. The death was ruled a homicide; Hernandez has not been named as a suspect in the case.The investigation also cost Hernandez his endorsement contract with CytoSport, which makes Muscle Milk and other supplements for athletes, last week.A call to Hernandez's attorney was not immediately returned.Lloyd has been described as a semi-professional football player with unspecified ties to Hernandez, friends and family told NBC affiliate in Boston WHDH. “My son is a wonderful child. He’s a family guy, he has not done anything to hurt anyone,” Lloyd’s mother Ursula Ward said. “First and foremost I would like to thank the person that found my son. I would like to say God put him in the right place at the right time.”Separately, Hernandez is also embroiled in a civil lawsuit by a Connecticut man, Alexander Bradley, who alleges Hernandez shot him in the eye after the two left a Miami strip club in February.According to a Palm Beach County police report, the case was abandoned because Bradley refused to cooperate with authorities.

    This does not bode well for the Patriots' offense. Welker, Woodhead and Lloyd are gone. Amendola is injury prone and Gronk is coming off of 5 surgeries.

    yeah who cares if he killed a dude and is by all accounts a violent psycho, the real concern here is for the patriots' offence.

    I'd love to know more about that Bradley situation. The guy gets shot right in the face by a multimillionaire football player and then refuses to assist in the police investigation. He reminds me of the Black Knight in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".

    Bet they wish they had kept Randy Moss. Now he seems stable in comparison.

    You know what's really sad? This has been going on for over a week and I've never once seen a picture of the victim. How sad is that?

    Oh give me a break. I was just mentioned that from a football perspective. I've been watching the arraignment and all of the press coverage and I have no sympathy for this idiot. He shot a man execution style, he needs to be held accountable.

    I had to look at several articles before finding a picture. That's terrible. It's not all about the famous athlete.

    Thanks Kris. How sad is it, that you had to dig? Of course it's ALL about the famous athletes *rolls eyes*.
