There is now an official homicide investigation going on one mile from Aaron Hernandez 's house in North Attleboro, Mass., and Hernandez was reportedly involved somehow. Here is what was reported by the FOX 25 TV in Boston on Wednesday night:
"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 [the deceased Odin 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 to 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."
A car that was rented under Hernandez's name was found near Lloyd's body. FOX 25 also reports, via their source, that officials believe this crime could be drug-related, specifically to marijuana. Shortly after being drafted in 2010, Hernandez admitted that he failed multiple drug tests because of marijuana while playing at the University of Florida.
The agency that represents Hernandez was reached by the station and offered no comment on the situation. Hernandez and the Patriots haven't said anything either.
There is a lot to digest here. If you believe the source, Hernandez is linked to a homicide that involved multiple crime scenes and perhaps multiple vehicles. Obviously, there are so many more questions than answers. Other than the obvious questions such as what happened or what was said during that car ride, and what was the motive for this crime, I would like to know why Hernandez even needed a rental car; he was close to his house and has cars of his own. There will be an update on this story later today.
