Aaron Hernandez Likely To Be Arrested In Connection to Murder

According to “sources”, it looks like New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is going to be arrested in connection with a murder.

A story that gets stranger by the day, mostly because of what’s not known, began with Hernandez being investigated in relation to a suspicious death near his New England home.


New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez had a connection to a homicide victim found in an industrial park near the athlete’s home, but family and officials were mum on the nature of their relationship, two days after police first visited the upscale division.

The body found about a mile from Hernandez’s sprawling home in North Attleborough was that of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, according to a prosecutor’s office. His cause of death wasn’t released.

Lloyd was a semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits and had a connection to Hernandez

On Wednesday the cops executed a search warrant at Hernandez’s home where he and his friends displayed some behavior that was decidedly not innocent looking:

Massachusetts State Police and prosecutors arrived at Hernandez’s $1.3 million, 5,600-square foot home, which is outfitted with a home gym and a swimming pool, just before 5 p.m. and spent hours with him inside the mansion.

Two Hernandez friends tried to leave house at the time of the search, but they were stopped by a state police car at the end of driveway. Crime scene investigators later searched the car the men tried to leave in.

During the search, Hernandez received a hand-delivered package from the prominent law firm Ropes and Gray around 7:30 p.m., with the deliveryman telling reporters swarming the sidewalk outside that it was addressed to “Mr. Hernandez himself.”

The “connection” between Hernandez and the dead man that was referred to in multiple headlines, turned out to be something closer to a game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon:

Police say that Lloyd was a linebacker for the Boston Bandits, a semi-pro football team, was dating the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend, and that police are trying to reach the sister because they are concerned about her safety. Lloyd’s family says he had connections to Hernandez but hasn’t elaborated.

Got that? The dead man was the boyfriend of the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend.

And from the “when it rains it pours department”, a man has refiled a suit against Hernandez claiming that the tight end shot him in the face outside of a night-club:

Alexander S. Bradley, the man who claims he was shot by Hernandez after the two argued upon leaving a Miami nightclub in February, is represented by New York attorney David Jaroslawicz.

Jaroslawicz filed a personal-injury lawsuit on behalf of his client, but that the suit was withdrawn because of an inaccuracy. A corrected version was refiled in Florida federal court Thursday morning, Jaroslawicz said.

Jaroslawicz said his client has been a friend of Hernandez for several years. The lawyer said Bradley spent several weeks being treated at a hospital and has endured several operations with even more necessary to repair damage from the gunshot wound.

The original lawsuit, Jaroslawicz said, alleged that Hernandez shot Bradley in the face. The refiling contends that Bradley was shot in the arm, but the bullet traveled into his head and caused damage there, including the loss of his right eye. According to the suit, the two had an argument in a strip club and later, in the car, Hernandez pointed a gun at Bradley. The gun went off and Bradley was hit.

You know your life has gone to hell when it starts to sound like the plot to a Scorsese film.

The New England Patriots, who usually avoid off the field drama, are now going to be looking for a new tight end since Rob Gronkowski is recovering from back surgery. I wonder if they have anyone around who could step in to the roll and learn the position. Hmmmmm…

Tebow Time?
