Sources: Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez expected to be arrested in homicide investigation

Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez @AaronHernandez is expected to be arrested at some point in connection with the murder of Odin Lloyd, a man whose body was found a mile away from Hernandez's Massachusetts home on Monday. That is what was reported Thursday by Steve Silva of -- the website of the Boston Globe -- and Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel and Greg Bedard. There are no hints as to when Hernandez will be arrested or with what he will be charged.
And there's more: According to ABC News, there is evidence that Hernandez destroyed his home security system, which included video surveillance, intentionally. And his cell phone was reportedly handed over to authorities "in pieces" by Hernandez's attorneys. Police who already searched Hernandez's home on Tuesday plan to return to the house today with another search warrant. For one thing, they would like to know why a team of house cleaners were hired Monday to scrub Hernandez's home.
It was reported by a Boston television station on Wednesday that Hernandez was with Lloyd and a couple of other men on the night of Lloyd's death. There is reportedly forensic evidence that places a vehicle driven by Hernandez at one of the crime scenes.
In an unrelated matter, Hernandez is being sued for $100,000 for allegedly shooting a man back in February.

Fantasy Analysis:

I will write again when word breaks that Hernandez has been arrested and what charges he faces. He may have had nothing to do with the direct killing of Lloyd, but as has been made pretty clear through reports in the last 24 hours, Hernandez could be charged with numerous offenses other than murder.
