Aaron Hernandez truly is looking worse by the minute, as the reports of his potential involvement with the murder of Odin Lloyd continue rolling in at a furious pace. Police have already searched the New England Patriots tight end’s home in North Attleboro, Mass., but authorities are reportedly planning to return on Thursday with another warrant based on evidence that Hernandez destroyed his home security system.
According to ABC News, an investigator and law enforcement sources have confirmed that Hernandez’s home security system — which included video surveillance — has been intentionally destroyed. His attorneys also reportedly handed over a cell phone to authorities that was “in pieces.”
It gets worse. Police are also reportedly interested in finding out why a cleaning crew was hired on Monday to scrub Hernandez’s $1.3 million home.
Of course, there could be a logical explanation for this series of coincidences. Hernandez could have smashed his cell phone after he got into an argument with his girlfriend. The security system may not have worked properly so he became so frustrated he decided to destroy it. As for the scrubbing of the house, well, NFL players in their mid-20s tend not to be very neat.
Let’s recap. Since Tuesday, Hernandez went from being questioned in a murder investigation but not a suspect, to not being ruled out as a suspect, to having been with the victim the night of the murder, to multiple reports that he is expected to be arrested in connection with the investigation. Now, he has allegedly destroyed potential evidence. Other than that, there has been very little excitement in the life of Aaron Hernandez over the past few days.
