Warrant for Aaron Hernandez for Obstruction of Justice Being Prepared

In this article…

The news around New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is continuing to develop and news is getting worse and worse for him. An arrest warrant is now expected to come for Hernandez for obstruction of justice in connection with the homicide investigation.

The warrant was being prepared after authorities found out that the security system at Hernandez’s home and his cell phone were destroyed. Thursday the police were once again at his house with another search warrant based on Hernandez destroying the home security system. The security system was smashed on purpose according to sources, and the cell phone was handed to investigators in pieces by his attorney, the sources added.

Investigators are also wondering why there was a cleaning team hired Monday to scrub down Hernandez’s mansion. According to ESPN’s legal analyst Roger Cossack, all of this was done on Hernandez’s part to destroy evidence, something that can land him in trouble as well. "There's a federal statute in every state that you cannot knowingly destroy evidence. And what [authorities] believe has happened here is that the home surveillance system was destroyed, the cell phone was destroyed, the house was cleaned, and the police think there was evidence that was destroyed because of that."

The problem authorities are facing is that no one knows for sure what was on that video, making it difficult for the police to make a case against Hernandez knowingly destroying incriminating evidence. The 23-year-old Hernandez has been at the center of the investigation since the body of year Odin Llyod, 27, was found shot in the back of the head Monday at an industrial park near Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.

Hernandez also had his contract with CytoSport, the creators of Muscle Milk, terminated Friday after being signed to an endorsement deal last August. He has also been removed from their website in light of the ongoing investigation.
