Aaron Hernandez’s situation is looking grim at this point.
He was questioned by police on Monday following the murder of an acquaintance of his, and his house was searched on Tuesday, as police searched for potential evidence.
The body of his acquaintance was found at an industrial park less than a mile from Hernandez’s home, and a vehicle rented by the star tight end has emerged as a key piece of evidence in regard to the murder.
The victim of the potential homicide was identified as Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro linebacker for the Boston Bandits. According to ABC News, Lloyd was shot in the head.
According to Steve Silva via twitter, Hernandez will be arrested today, saying:
“Hearing via law enforcement that Aaron Hernandez will be arrested in connection with the North Attleborough murder”
This is a huge turn in the developing case. This, combined with Gronkowski’s injuries, doesn’t make it a very good offseason to be a Patriot’s fan.
