New details emerged Wednesday night regarding Patriots tight end, Aaron Hernandez, and say that he is now likely to be arrested in regards to the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd.
Hernandez’s involvement in the case is significant enough that a source with knowledge of the investigation said that Hernandez’s arrest is likely. It is not yet known what he would be charged with, according to Sports Illustrated.
Early Wednesday, Massachusetts State Police searched in and around his home on Wednesday after what appeared to be a full-scale search warrant execution with 10 police cars on Tuesday.
The source also told the station that Hernandez, 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 another friend.
Only three men would arrive at Hernandez’s house while Lloyd was found dead a mile away.
FOX 25 says that Hernandez may have hired a lawyer because a courier from Boston law firm Ropes & Gray delivered an envelope to his home on Wednesday.
Hernandez is also facing a legal case in which he is being sued by another man for allegedly shooting him in the face. Alexander Bradley claims that Hernandez shot him in the face causing him to lose his right eye.
