Report: New England Patriots Aaron Hernandez 'Directly Tied to Homicide'

While police have yet to officially name New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez a suspect, that charge may not be far off assuming the reports from Fox 25 are accurate.

The Boston based news station is reporting that Hernandez is “directly tied to the homicide” this evening.

Per Fox 25:

A law enforcement official tells FOX 25 Hernandez appears to be directly tied to the homicide which is why authorities executed a search warrant at his home Tuesday night. According to the same source, 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, the source says.

The source also says forensic evidence places a vehicle driven by Hernandez at one of the crime scenes in this case.

In addition to trying to find a second vehicle rented in Hernandez’s name, police are reportedly in search of a silver mirror cover which is believed to have been broken off a vehicle used in the murder.

Earlier tonight, a law source confirmed that Hernandez was the driver of a car at a “crime scene” and suggested that the murder could be drug related, specifically marijuana.
