    Apologies if this has already been posted, but I just saw it on Twitter: http://abcnews.go.com/US/aaron-hernandez-destroyed-home-security-system-phone-sources/story?id=19445131#.UcND9bvLibV According to the link he destroyed his home security video as well as his phone ETA: Also, a team of cleaners came to his mansion on Monday and scrubbed it down.

    "Dexter" would have been only one episode long if he killed people a mile from his home and left his car at the scene.

    Seriously?? You can not convict someone of murder without actual evidence. Ever hear of reasonable doubt?? Circumstantial is called that for a reason. are you fishing or just completely clueless? I'll take clueless for 10000 Alex. ETA: To his credit he's stuck to his owner bias throughout this ordeal. I'd be surprised if Hernandez isn't still on his team while he's lock up doing life. 1. It seems you're the clueless one here, because... 2. My "bias" was that everyone jumped on the guilty train as soon as the cops searched his house, creating crazy speculatory circumstances based on absolutely nothing. I was in the innocent until proven guilty party. When it came out that the dead guy was in Hernandez' car, and three of the four ended up back at Hernandez' house, I conceded it wasn't looking good for him, and have my doubts about him getting out of this thing clean. However, nobody knows what happened, and convicting him in the media on the little information we have is a bit premature. It's ok to not like me, or the Pats, or any Pats fan, but at least read the comments before you decide to make yourself look like an idiot. I was referring to ghostguy. HTH

    Please let one of them be Tom Brady. The other is only known by his street name "Hoodie"

    This might sound stupid, but if he's a smart kid, in the long run it may be better for him that he missed OTA's with injury. Because he spent all of OTA's and minicamps working with RG3 directly, catching the ball and working out. Trust and a connection with your star QB is seriously underrated.

    Destroying the phone and surveillance system looks bad, but having maids clean your house Monday makes sense. He has buddies in town for the weekend (which would also explain the multiple car rentals), so he has the maids come in on Monday. Yep - that was it. lol - Good Lord, a Pats player could walk up, punch an 80 year old nun in the face unprovoked, have the entire thing video taped, and there would be NE fans in here defending him, saying the old lady had it coming. You guys are funny. My cleaning ladies come on a Monday. Maybe Hernandez has a guy come over every month to smash his cell phone and home security system too?

    Seriously?? You can not convict someone of murder without actual evidence. Ever hear of reasonable doubt?? Circumstantial is called that for a reason. You've heard of Scott Peterson, haven't you? Drew Peterson too...that's 2 and we haven't gotten out of the Peterson's yet.

    Mr. Wolf and the boys? I put the odds at about 0.1% that he's smart enough to pull this off if he really was part of a previously unplanned murder. They'll find something. "That gives us exactly... forty minutes to get the #### out of Dodge. Which, if you do what I say when I say it, should be plenty. Now, you've got a corpse in a car, minus a head, in a garage. Take me to it." At least Hernandez noticed the sign in the front of his house.

    God willing, some day they'll let me be executioner too. I got a list all ready to go.

    Reporting that Hernandez handed his phone to police, the phone was in pieces. I guess this would be the "uncooperative part"It all makes sense now. Dude broke his phone. He had it coming. "He made a mess of my house and destroyed my security system, see. Then he offered to fix it and pay for my night out. Everything was great but on the way back home he decided to break my phone. He felt so bad about all of this that he shot himself. I knew he was a nature lover so I helped put his body in a field. It was a nice night so I decided to park the car and walk home after that. Oh, and the cleaning ladies were coming early in the morning so I didn't have time to deal with the police all night."

    Source?Because it turns out the police chopper over his house was probably a news chopper Its been reported on two different station news reports on Boston radio Link?It all seems to stem from this Tweet, which is a far cry from the statement early in this thread that an arrest warrant was issued at 9 a.m. Steve Silva ‏@stevesilva 2h Hearing via law enforcement source that Aaron Hernandez will be arrested in connection with the North Attleborough murder Jesus H Christ what link???? It was reported on both Boston radio stations. Go find Woodward & Bernstein. All I know is what was reported. ####### link

    It's the white one in the parking lot. They were zooming in on just about every one except his They just zoomed in on some random dude hoping it was Hernandez. I think they are hoping the cops will ascend on Gillette stadium to arrest him so they can get the footage. But it seems pretty obvious AH isn't running, and will probably just turn himself in later. I think we know more about all this than he does.

    I think there are a lot of serious overreactions going on here thinking his career is over, etc. If we have learned anything about how the NFL treats players, we know that while they are certainly quick and stern in handing down punishments, everyone gets a 2nd (and 3rd) chance. Plaxico went to jail for 2 years and came back in his mid 30s and had a relevant fantasy stint. Vick went to jail for two years and came back. You know how it is with these NFL players with money and the ability to plead down a charge. Unless they reveal that he heineously murdered someone in cold blood, the absolute most he will ever get is a three year sentence that is watered down to two and then a 25, 26 year old Hernandez will be allowed right back into the NFL. But that is putting the cart ahead of the horse. It could very well end up that Hernandez walks out of this with nothing. If I own him, I don't trade. If I don't own him, I probably observe his owner to guage his feelings and I buy because at this time the owner willing to sell can't ask for the moon so you are liking getting the lowest price you can imagine and if that price is liveable with you to say "Worst case scenario, I just gave this way for nothing" then you can only win long-term.

    My criminal law experience as a criminal defense attorney and later for the state tells me that we need to know a lot more facts. I suppose it's fun for people to speculate but the reality of the courtroom is a lot different. Based on what I've read so far, I have no opinion one way or the other right now about whether he's guilty. It will be interesting to see what facts come to light. One thing I've learned over the years from observation and from a few of my own cases is that often, you will not learn some of the most important facts from the media.

    I wouldn't trade anything I really valued for him at this point. Chances are pretty good Hernandez is about to be valueless for awhile. How long awhile is I don't know, but I think it's pretty unlikely he's going to walk away from this free and clear. And the possibility his career is over is very real.

    A year IIRC? AH is certainly done in Foxboro. His best case scenario is he avoids serious jail time by some fancy lawyering, but certainly he's not playing in 2013 potentially 2014. Some team will give him a call though. He's very young, 23 I think. That's part of the problem. What a shame. A waste of so many lives. I am pretty sure his best case scenario is that he didnt kill someone and he is fine. It doesn't matter if he was the guy who pulled the trigger. If he was in the car and at the scene he and the other non-trigger man are both guilty of murder. He's done. Sorry. I'm a huge Pats fan and loved AH as a player, but it's over. If he had an alibi, we'd have heard it by now. Like I said - and i'll qualify it for the pedants - his most likely best case scenario is going to be some kind of plea via some Ray Lewis style lawyer magic. Why exactly would we have heard ANYTHING about an alibi by now?? It's be 2 days, not even. Did he even talk to the police yet?? And if he did, the captain probably doesnt call rotoworld immediately afterwards to provide fantasy updates. If he had a strong alibi, you better believe his agents/PR people would have already leaked that to the press. This is a nightmare for his agent/PR guys.

    Unless its used like..."damn, I odin some money and now he's looking to collect."

    I guess I COULD be wrong, but I don't think Goodell gives suspensions based on rotoworld reports. And in case you didn't realize it, but just because he initially said no to the police ransacking his house does not mean he did anything wrong in the slightest (in regards to not letting them in to search the house I mean). If Goodell gave a suspension because someone requires a warrant to have the police tear apart their home, then Goodell needs to suspend himself for being a total reject.

    ...forensic evidence has reportedly placed a vehicle driven by Hernandez at "one of the crime scenes in (the) case." excerpt from above report sounds like a serious allegation... was he definitely driving the car at the time of the events at one of the crime scenes, or did he lend it? sounds like he left bar with deceased, but there are still a lot of specifics and details about the timeline we don't know yet. the plural "scenes" is suggestive... another report noted that the person who discovered the body may have been told by police (? that in itself sounds odd in ongoing investigation) that deceased may have been killed elsewhere and body dumped there. not sure if that is what is meant by scenes. there have been conflicting reports on whether he was cooperating or not. if he did participate in an interview, i don't recall reports that lawyer/s were present. if he allowed an interview, and lawyers weren't present, and he was guilty (hypothetically), that would be hard to reconcile for me. * where is the other car, and why is it missing?

    Has he ever suspended anyone for something they were never convicted of?? Ever, even once?? I know seriously. This is a Goodell Special. Even if no charges are ever filed Goodell gets to play his own game of Judge & Jury. This one was my favorite, granted Pac Man has a long rap sheet but a 4-game suspension based on hearsay?

    Did Hernandez have character concerns? http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/articles/2010/04/27/patriots_draft_pick_hernandez_failed_marijuana_tests/ If smoking some weed means you have character concerns then this whole world is in the crapper. Using an illegal drug does sort of raise character flags for someone, regardless of how one may perceive the severity of the drug or the intent behind it. You may think it's no big deal, but unfortunately the law, and society to a certain extent, looks at Marijuana use in a different light. Multiple failed drug tests is not a great reflection of personal character. Hernandez very well may be innocent in this matter, but he's obviously got ties to some shady characters, which goes back to his personal character.

    Somebody died... maybe a different choice of words? maybe a different sense of humor/sarcasm?? "Uncooperative" is a meaningless word when talking about a search of a home. Who in the hell just lets the police ransack their house???

    If the cops want to search your house and you demand that they get a search warrant, you are being "uncooperative with police". Not to mention smart guilty and well within your legal rights or a pain in the ###. Fixed

    Judge: "Officer Smith... the defense says you did not have a warrant when you collected the evidence being used to incriminate them. Can you response to this?" Officer Smith; "Yes, your honor. It is true I did not have a search warrant when I collected the evidence. But I collected the evidence from their car with my eyes closed, so the 4th amendment did not limit my behavior of collecting it. It wasn't until I had the warrant that I opened my eyes to read what I gathered and saw it was evidence of their crime."
