There is even more trouble for New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Police returned to his home with another search warrant after learning that he intentionally destroyed evidence that included his home security system.
The investigator, and other law enforcement sources, confirmed that the security system – which included video surveillance – was smashed intentionally.
And a cell phone used by Hernandez was handed over to investigators “in pieces” by his attorneys, the sources said.
Police also want to know why a team of house cleaners were hired on Monday to scrub Hernandez’s mansion, sources told ABC News.
Hernandez has been at the center of the investigation since Lloyd’s body was found shot in the back of the head in a scrubby clearing of an industrial park roughly a mile from the Patriots star’s million-dollar mansion in North Attleborough Monday.
All this does is creating more damning speculation towards Hernandez and cause more questions.
Why was there a team of cleaners scrubbing the home? If this is a weekly occurrence, then it could mean nothing more than Hernandez is one sloppy guy. If he was cleaning up evidence and prohibiting police officers from advancing the case by smashing his surveillance cameras, then he could be in some deep trouble regardless of whether or not he actually pulled the trigger himself.
The longer this goes on, the worse it looks for Hernandez.
He’s got a lengthy battle ahead of him and the distraction for himself and the Patriots is surely not welcomed by head coach Bill Belichick.
