Aaron Hernandez has not been named a suspect in a homicide of an associate, but media reports continue to swirl around the New England Patriots tight end.
According to a report Thursday by ABC News, a video surveillance system in Hernandez’s home was intentionally smashed, and a cellphone used by him was handed over to investigators “in pieces.”
The report, which cites anonymous sources, said police also want to know why a crew came Monday to clean the player’s sprawling home in North Attoborough, Mass. On the same day, the body of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd was found in an industrial park about a mile away.
An attorney for Hernandez, Michael Fee, has not commented on the investigation, but according to ABC, released a statement saying: “It has been widely reported in the media that the state police have searched the home of our client, Aaron Hernandez, as part of an ongoing investigation. Out of respect for that process, neither we nor Aaron will have any comment about the substance of that investigation until it has come to a conclusion.”
