Law enforcement officials back at Hernandez's home
Police departed Hernandez's house at approximately 5:45 p.m. ET, carrying out approximately 15 bags of apparent evidence.
On Friday there was a series of conflicting media reports on the existence and possible form of an arrest warrant for Hernandez -- either computerized, just on paper or anything at all.Despite multiple reports to the contrary, a clerk in Attleboro (Mass.) District Court told USA Today Sports on Friday afternoon that no arrest warrant has been issued for Hernandez or anyone else in the case. Furthermore, the court offices closed for the weekend at 4:30 p.m. Friday.
Also, if an arrest is made based only on obstruction charges, it would not necessarily preclude filing of further charges in this case.
Hernandez has been tied to the shooting death of Lloyd since the victim's body was found Monday afternoon in an industrial parkway only a quarter mile from Hernandez's North Attleborough, Mass., home.
Seasoned crime reporters have theorized that local police and other authorities may have leaked incorrect information on the issuance of a warrant in an attempt to get Hernandez to be more cooperative.
Lloyd, 27, was a linebacker for the semi-pro Boston Bandits. There were indications that he was shot and the body dumped in the industrial park. Lloyd had practiced with the team on Saturday. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez's girlfriend, Shayana Jenkins, who is the mother of his child.
Fox 25 News reported that neighbors heard shots fired between 3 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. Monday. Video surveillance footage showed Hernandez and two other men wearing hooded sweatshirts entered Hernandez's home shortly afterward. Hernandez was seen at Lloyd's home an hour earlier.
On Tuesday, the story of a lawsuit in Florida emerged in which Alexander S. Bradley alleged that Hernandez pointed a gun at him and it discharged while they were riding in a vehicle, striking Bradley in the face and resulting in the loss of his right eye and other facial injuries that required surgery. According to the suit, the two men had argued outside a strip club.
The Patriots selected Hernandez in the fourth round of the 2010 draft after he won the John Mackey Award as the top tight end in the nation. He was considered to have first-round talent, but due to failing drug tests and a questionable off-season lifestyle, he slipped down many draft boards and, reportedly, was taken off some.
Hernandez went to Bristol, Conn., Central High school and was rated the best tight end prospect in the nation by Scout.com. His father, Dennis, and older brother D.J. attended the University of Connecticut and it was at first believed he would follow their footsteps.
His father died at age 49 in January 2006 after complications from routine hernia surgery. Aaron, then 16, said his life was shattered.
