The situation regarding Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez continues to look more and more ominous by the day. According to Fox 25 News in Boston, Hernandez is directly tied to the homicide investigation:

A law enforcement official tells FOX 25 Hernandez appears to be directly tied to the homicide which is why authorities executed a search warrant at his home Tuesday night. According to the same source, Hernandez, Lloyd, and two other men were at a bar in Boston the night of the homicide, and at some point, the four men left together in a car driven by Hernandez which was confirmed by a text Lloyd sent another friend, the source says.

It is unclear where the car went or what happened during the ride, but according to the source only three men returned to Hernandez's home at the end of the night and Lloyd was not one of them.

The source also says forensic evidence places a vehicle driven by Hernandez at one of the crime scenes in this case.

Again, it's important to note that police haven't named any suspects in the case. Nonetheless, this latest update is concerning, to say the least.
