Warrant issued for Patriots star Hernandez in connection to friend’s death
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – A warrant has been issued for the arrest of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
Police say Hernandez will be charged with obstruction of justice in connection with the murder of his friend Odin Lloyd.
Investigators say that video retrieved from surveillance cameras near Hernandez's home show the two men together in the hours before Lloyd was shot in the back of his head.
Lloyd’s body was found a mile away from the NFL star’s mansion.
Police investigating the homicide suspect that Hernandez intentionally destroyed potential evidence.
As of Friday, no one has been charged in Lloyd’s death.
Hernandez has made no comment about the case.
