New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez allegedly tampered with his own home security system and hired cleaners to scrub down his house, hours before a drinking buddy was found dead nearby, according to broadcast reports.
Hernandez huddled with defense lawyers today as speculation swirled about his ties to semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, 27, who was found fatally shot at a North Attleboro, Mass., industrial park Monday night, a half-mile from the tight end’s home.
Cops, who searched Hernandez’s home on Tuesday, were expected to be back there today with a new search warrant based on evidence that “he destroyed his home security system” an investigator told ABC News.
Law enforcement sources said Hernandez’s security system, which includes video surveillance, was smashed intentionally, ABC reported.
Hernandez’s lawyers had previously turned over a cell phone - smashed “in pieces” - to investigators, sources said.
Even more curiously, Hernandez hired a team of house cleaners to come to his suburban Boston mansion to thoroughly clean the place on Monday, law enforcement sources told ABC.

Hernandez drives from his home today in North Attleborough, Mass.
"He [Hernandez] has not been ruled out,” one police official said. “We are not calling him a suspect, but he is definitely not in the clear.”
Lloyd, Hernandez and two other men were spotted at a Boston watering hole on Sunday night before leaving in one car, according to Fox affiliate WFXT-TV.
Hernandez, 23, is one of the Patriots’ most important players and is a prime receiving target of quarterback Tom Brady.
The star tight end is also being sued by a former friend for allegedly blasting him in the face after arguing in Florida in February.
Alexander Bradley, 32, wants at least $100,000 for injuries he suffered when he was allegedly shot by Hernandez. They had been partying at a Miami strip club and got into an argument and left in the same car, when the shooting happened, according to the federal civil complaint.
Sports Illustrated reported that Hernandez got into a loud argument with a Jets fan on May 18 on a Providence street, drawing a police response.
When Brown University cops arrived to break it up, officers found a discarded gun nearby, although the weapon was never connected to Hernandez or the Jets fan, according to police reports cited by SI.com

Wow, could he make his guilt any more obvious??? Sounds like a thug who happens to play football on the side. I read somewhere that the dead man was an ex-boyfriend of Aaron's girlfriends sister. Also that he was shot execution style. Don't quote me on any of this but sounds like they knew what they were doing, no accident.

In the lawsuit initially filed in federal court on June 13, attorneys representing Alexander Bradley, 32, said that Hernandez and several others were at Tootsie's strip club in Miami on Feb. 13 when Bradley and Hernandez got into an argument. The group then left the club, and while driving towards Palm Beach, Hernandez's gun discharged inside the vehicle. "It fired, and a bullet went through my client's arm and blew out his right eye," attorney David Jaroslawicz told ABCNews.com. "It has been enucleated -- replaced with a prosthetic eye. He has also lost use of his right arm."

I find it interesting that the attorney for Hernandez's former friend made a statement using passive language. "It fired" is not the same as saying "Hernandez shot my client".

Don't get me wrong, with friends like Hernandez who needs enemies. But none-the-less, it is interesting to see the passive language here.

The good news is that Hernandez was arrested, but not on murder charges. I believe it was on obstruction of justice.
