Earlier this week, New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd. Less than two hours after this announcement, the Patriots officially released Hernandez. Some of the former NFL player’s suspicious activity that led to his arrest include intentionally destroying his cell phone and home security system (like the ones shown here: www.homesecurityinfo.com) to potentially hide evidence from law enforcement. He also hired a cleaning crew to scrub his entire mansion from top to bottom just before the police came knocking with a warrant to confiscate his cell phone and security system. The footage that has been recovered by investigators shows Hernandez leaving his home with a gun and another man returning to Hernandez’s home, also carrying a gun.
But you don’t have to look to the surveillance video to see Hernandez’s criminal involvement. His record dates back to when he was an undergrad at the University of Florida and tested positive for marijuana multiple while playing as a tight end on the school’s football team. And more recently (before the latest murder charge), Hernandez had a lawsuit filed against him for allegedly shooting Alexander Bradley while they were riding in a car together, which resulted in Bradley losing his right eye. With an already tarnished reputation and his previous run-ins with the law, the destroyed security system surveillance doesn’t dismiss the fact that he’s already got a criminal record. Overall, things aren’t looking good for Aaron Hernandez.
