I hadn't really been following this story much, but this looks bad:








Aaron Hernandez Destroyed Home Security System and Phone, Sources Tell ABC News








By MICHELE McPHEE


BOSTON June 20, 2013





Police plan to go back to the home of New England Patriot's tight end Aaron Hernandez today with another warrant based on evidence that "he destroyed his home security system,'' an investigator close to the case told ABC News.





The investigator, and other law enforcement sources, confirmed that the security system - which included video surveillance - was smashed intentionally.





And a cell phone used by Hernandez was handed over to investigators "in pieces'' by his attorneys, the sources said.





Police also want to know why a team of house cleaners were hired on Monday to scrub Hernandez's mansion, sources told ABC News.





The revelations come as multiple sources tell ABC News that the star NFL player has not been ruled out as a suspect in the murder of a semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, 27, who was Hernandez's friend.more:

His lawyers may be left holding the bag if Hernandez is charged with murder though. The criminal defense lawyers will take all of his money and insurance won't cover an intentional tort (which they've pleaded in the alternative).

When are we going to stop lionizing violent, 'roid-filled sport stars? We teach them to be ultra-aggressive on the field or in the ring and then are shocked and dismayed when that behavior spills out into their every day.Some days, I hate what our culture has become.

Yup, I think Timmeh's stock just went up a few points (God bless!). The Pats' plans for trying him out at H-back/passing-down tight end is not much of a secret.





[Speaking of which, stocks that are up today are few and far between. Just about everything I own went down, groan. I guess you could call Tebow one of those contrarian investments, eh?]

Hernandez has been arrested. Also dropped from Team.Charges won't be known until later.The charges against him are unclear but, as ABC News has reported, he had not been ruled out as a suspect in the killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, 27, who was found shot dead June 17.The Bristol County District Attorney's office said Hernandez will be booked at the North Attleborough police station and then brought to district court for his arraignment. The charges against Hernandez will not be made public until his arraignment today, district attorney C. Samuel Sutter said in a statement.[/break1]go.com/US/patriots-star-aaron-hernandez-escorted-house-cops/story?id=19492508]http://abcnews.go.com/US/patriots-star- ... d=19492508http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/j/MSNBC/Components/Photo/_new/130626-arron-hernandez-hmed-930a.photoblog600.jpg[/break1]nbcnews.com/_news/2013/06/26/19152123-patriots-tight-end-aaron-hernandez-arrested-team-drops-him?lite]http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/06 ... s-him?lite

I'm guessing it had to do with this:Lloyd, 27, was a semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits who was reportedly found dead on June 17 with multiple gunshot wounds.Lloyd's family says he was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee. They say the two men were friends and were out together on the last night of Lloyd's life. Lloyd's mother, Ursula Ward, declined to comment at her Boston home Wednesday morning.

I read Aaron's story the other day. Came from a good family and had tremendous support from his college coach. Seems he was deeply affected by his fathers death when he was 16. Everyone had him pegged as trouble from the start, to bad so much effort to help him seems to have done no good. Ironically far less effort can help a lot of kids who are at risk. I encourage anyone who can volunteer mentoring and tutoring at schools (grades k-2 especially) to do it. Incredibly rewarding and much more effective than building more prisons.

Urban Meyer didn't do anybody (but himself) any favors covering that up, if true. If we believe the allegations from the recent law suit, he shot another friend in the face. So, if we believe all of this, the murder victim was shooting victim #3. I heard a sports reporter from the Boston Globe saying that at NFL draft time, it was well known that Hernandez had "character issues", which explains why a gifted athlete like Hernandez didn't get drafted until the fourth round. Lots of folks have parents die when they are young, and they don't end up murdering someone.

Seems to have all been a complete waste of time. Story I am hearing is he shot Lloyd because the guy was partying with people Hernandez didn't like. Mr. Hernandez's minions are squealing like stuck pigs at this point.Apparently he had no friends on the Patriots team because he was considered trouble. seems strange to give a guy a 40 million dollar contract when he has demonstrated that he is not a team player.

Lester Munson has been doing legal analysis for ESPN for quite some time, and is usually spot on with the facts and which way they will take a case.





[/break1]go.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/9426203/case-details-aired-arraignment-former-new-england-patriots-tight-end-aaron-hernandez-appear-strong]Here's his take on the now unemployed Hernandez.





Q: Why did authorities charge Hernandez with first-degree murder and not with any lesser offense such as second-degree murder or manslaughter?





A: The police and the Bristol County district attorney are convinced they have evidence that Hernandez was angry with the victim, Odin Lloyd; that Hernandez deliberately sought him out; and that Hernandez took Lloyd to what Hernandez thought was a secluded area and shot him at least five times. When prosecutor William McCauley used the phrase "execution style" in his courtroom presentation, it was a clear signal he thought the killing was planned and deliberate. If it was planned and deliberate, it is first-degree murder, a charge that in Massachusetts can lead to a sentence of life without parole. There was nothing accidental or even reckless in the prosecutor's scenario of what happened, nothing that would justify a lesser charge.

BREAKING NEWS: Aaron Hernandez Under Investigation For Another DOUBLE HOMICIDE July 2012 In Boston





Aaron Hernandez, the former NFL tight end charged with murder in the death last week of an acquaintance, [highlight]is now being investigated in connection with a double slaying in Boston's South End in July 2012[/highlight], a law enforcement source close to the investigation told CNN. The source gave no indication whether there was any connection between that investigation and Hernandez's current murder charge.





What is known is that the Boston Police Department has located and impounded a silver SUV with Rhode Island registration that police have been trying to find for almost a year, that's linked to the scene of a double homicide in 2012, the source said.


[highlight]Investigators believe that Hernandez was renting the SUV at the time of those killings[/highlight], the source said.








Hernandez, who was released by the New England Patriots on Wednesday after his arrest, will be back in a courtroom Thursday for a bail hearing. Hernandez is scheduled to appear at Fall River, Massachusetts, Superior Court at 2 p.m. to appeal a judge's decision to hold him without bail, the court magistrate said.








[highlight]A second man arrested in connection with the killing of Odin Lloyd is also expected to appear before a judge.[/highlight]


Carlos Ortiz was arrested in Bristol, Connecticut, on Wednesday and will have an initial hearing in Attleboro, Massachusetts, District Court as early as Thursday, a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN.[/break1]com/profiles/blogs/breaking-news-aaron-hernandez-under-investigation-for-another-dou]http://hiphopnews24-7.com/profiles/blog ... nother-dou

If any of this pans out, he may be the first serial killer in the NFL. :shock:Just killing multiple people doesn't necessarily make one a serial killer.So, I looked it up on wiki:





A serial killer is traditionally defined as a person who has killed three or more people[1][2] over a period of more than a month, with down time (a "cooling off period") between the murders, and whose motivation for killing is usually based on psychological gratification.[3][4] Some sources, such as the FBI, disregard the "three or more" criteria and define the term as "a series of two or more murders, committed as separate events, usually, but not always, by one offender acting alone" or, including the vital characteristics, a minimum of two murders.[4][5] Often, a sexual element is involved in the killings, but the FBI states that motives for serial murder include "anger, thrill, financial gain, and attention seeking".[5] The murders may have been attempted or completed in a similar fashion and the victims may have had something in common; for example, occupation, race, appearance, sex, or age group.[6][/break1]wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_killer]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_killer





I know, it's wiki, but I think it's close enough. ;)

Hernandez supposedly had an altercation with the victims prior to killing them. Incidental killings committed during crimes, or for the purpose of completing crimes, does not generally qualify one as a "serial killer." So, for example, a drug kingpin who commits multiple murders in the course of business is not a serial killer. Nor is a generally bad person who just happens to kill people because of general ill-nature. For a serial killer, the killing is done more or less for its own sake.While there are some outliers such as "black widows" who repeatedly kill husbands for inheritances, or Dr. Harold Shipman, who often had his victims make wills in his favor before killing them, even in these cases, the murder itself is usually the motive. It isn't just a means to an end.

Ah, but it also says:but the FBI states that motives for serial murder include "[highlight]anger[/highlight], thrill, financial gain, and attention seekingIt appears that in all of these cases (including the friend he shot in the face, but lived), anger was a strong motivation. Over stupid shit. No doubt, again, if these allegations are true, Hernandez received some psychological gratification from these incidents.
