After seeing very little action over the past couple of days, the murder investigation involving Aaron Hernandez picked up again this morning as the footballer was seen being taken from his home in handcuffs!
The New England Patriots tight end has been living under a microscope for the past week after the body of Odin Lloyd was found about a mile from his home. However, it's not exactly clear why he was taken into custody.
The North Attleborough police department have not announced whether or not Aaron is being charged, so we can't really make any assumptions yet, but there were previous reports that an arrest warrant was prepared for obstruction of justice after he allegedly destroyed security footage at his home and handed over a smashed cell phone to investigators.
The evidence certainly doesn't seem to be in his favor, as it was also reported that he and Odin were together the night before his body was found, and he went on to hire a cleaning crew to spruce up his house the very next day!
We'll have to wait and see what exactly the charges are, but sources are saying he's expected to be arraigned at the Attleborough District Court later today, so hopefully we'll have more details soon!
