Aaron Hernandez‘s potential connection to the North Attleboro murder investigation continues to unfold.
Hernandez already has deep ties to the investigation, but details are beginning to get even murkier when it comes his level of involvement.
Before police visited Hernandez’s North Attleboro home Tuesday afternoon, Hernandez broke his home security system and his cell phone, according to ABC News. The cell phone was handed to police “in pieces,” according to the report.
Police are also trying to figure out why a cleaning service was called to Hernandez’s house on Monday to “scrub” the mansion, per ABC.
Hernandez is involved in the case after 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, who was associated with Hernandez, was found dead about a mile from the Patriots tight end’s home. Police questioned Hernandez and searched his home on Tuesday night, and they left with a cardboard box.
Hernandez has also been linked with some other recent police activity. He’s being sued for shooting a man on Feb. 13 down in Miami. He’s also been named in two recent police reports in connection with disturbances at Providence night clubs.
There have been conflicting reports about whether Hernandez is still a suspect in the case. The ABC report quotes one source saying, “We are not calling him a suspect, but he is definitely not in the clear.”
