New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is under a microscope as the investigation on the murder of semi-pro Boston football player Odin Lloyd is linked with Hernandez’s connection with the victim and an array of pieces of evidence.
Earlier today, Boston.com Steve Silva reported via a law enforcement source that Aaron Hernandez will be arrested in connection with Lloyd’s murder. As members of the media have made themselves comfortable around Hernandez house for the past three days now, this morning they followed Hernandez as he left his home for a trip to the Gillette Stadium. MyFoxBoston.com reported Hernandez looking up to the helicopter before disappearing into the building.
Much is yet to be known, but as this investigation progresses, it is certainly looking very grim for Hernandez. At this point, we certainly know more of the progress of this investigation than we could ever guess what went on inside the Gillette Stadium. And now reports are emerging that Hernandez has left the building and the media frenzy are following his white SUV all over the streets of Foxboro.
Unfortunately, it’s a very sad and disappointing situation and I absolutely dislike unnecessary attention, mainly one that involves a Patriots player in the killing of another human being. Whatever went on inside the walls of the Gillette Stadium, Bill Belichick’s and Mr. Kraft’s office nobody will ever know, hear, or see. But the ramifications of Hernandez potential involvement, action or knowledge in this crime will have drastic results such as the possible termination of his NFL career.
