Steve Silva of Boston.com is reporting that Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will be arrested in connection with the murder of 27-year old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found near Hernandez’s North Attleboro home on Monday. Hearing via law enforcement source that Aaron Hernandez will be arrested in connection with the North Attleborough murder — Steve Silva (@stevesilva) June 20, 2013 According to a report by Boston’s Fox 25 on Wednesday night, law enforcement officials have forensic evidence that directly ties Hernandez to the homicide of Lloyd, who was an acquaintance of Hernandez’s. A law enforcement official tells FOX 25 Hernandez appears to be directly tied to the homicide which is why authorities executed a search warrant at his home Tuesday night. According to the same source, Hernandez, Lloyd, and two other men were at a bar in Boston the night of the homicide, and at some point, the four men left together in a car driven by Hernandez which was confirmed by a text Lloyd sent another friend, the source says. It is unclear where the car went or what happened during the ride, 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. The source also says forensic evidence places a vehicle driven by Hernandez at one of the crime scenes in this case. (via) It is believed that surveillance footage taken from Hernandez’s home during the search warrant carried out Tuesday may have placed the Pats tight end with the victim on the night of the murder.
