Patriots Drop Hernandez After His Arrest

Last week, a man’s body was found less than a mile away from Aaron Hernandez’s home. The victim was Odin Lloyd, 27, who was a semi-professional football player and was an acquaintance to Hernandez, but their exact relationship has not yet been verified.

Not long after Lloyd’s body was found, Hernandez became a focus of the investigation. He’d had his home searched, with investigators removing several bags of potential evidence. Hernandez also smashed his home surveillance system and cell phone before any investigations took place, but was arrested this morning. No official charges have been filed against him so far.

 Hernandez was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2010 and was given a five-year contract with the team, but Hernandez was dropped by the team once he was arrested as a result of the murder investigation.

When I’d first heard about this last week, I was completely shocked. And even more so when details, such as the busted cell phone and security system, were released. I know everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but it’s hard not to have an opinion when so much information is available for us to read.

I’d like to think he didn’t have any connection with this murder, but there are certain questions that make me think he’s at least connected. Why did he smash his surveillance system and his cell phone? Was he friend of Lloyd’s? If so, maybe they were just hanging out and someone else murdered Lloyd.

What do you think? Do you think there’s much more to the story, and Hernandez will be released? Do you think he’s innocent? Or could this all be some misunderstanding and somehow Hernandez got caught in the middle of an accident?
