This week has gone from bad, to worse to now possibly life-altering for New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Considered a suspect in the murder of Odin Lloyd, Hernandez was one of three men last seen with the victim the night of the murder.
Hernandez was in a car with three other men – including Lloyd – the night of the murder, on the way back to his home. However, only three men made it back to the home.
Odin was not one of those men.
According to Boston.com’s Steve Silva, there are now reports coming in from law enforcement sources stating that Hernandez will be arrested in the very near future due to him being a direct connection to the murder.
At this point, Hernandez is still innocent until the justice system proves otherwise. But if all indications are true. this will not end well for Hernandez.
Widely known as one of the best tight ends in the game and still at such a young age, the former Florida Gator had been looking forward to many more years of success with his Patriots. This incident could change that future drastically.
There are also rumors regarding the murder linking it to being a drug-related homicide, but nothing absolute has been announced just yet. In any event, Hernandez appears to be in serious trouble.
We will keep you updated on all of the events to come as more details come to fruition. For now, it looks as if the Patriots’ situation at tight end just became scarily thin.
