BOSTON (WWLP) - Boston-area media sources are offering conflicting reports over whether a warrant has been issued for the arrest of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, amid a homicide investigation.
Friday morning, WBZ-NewsRadio 1030 reported, quoting an unnamed law enforcement source, that a warrant for obstruction of justice had been issued against Hernandez.
The Boston Globe , however, quoted another unnamed law enforcement source, saying that there have been no warrants issued for anyone in connection with the case.
Hernandez has been followed in recent days with questions regarding the death of former semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, whose body was found on Monday about a mile away from Hernandez's North Attleborough home.
Hernandez and Lloyd knew each other, and the Globe reports that surveillance images appear to show the two together in Boston earlier in the day on Monday.
Michael Fee, an attorney for Hernandez, has acknowledged media reports that the police had been searching the player's house, but would not offer any comment.
Hernandez, meanwhile is being sued in Florida by 30 year-old Alexander Bradley, who claims that the Patriots player shot him in the face after the two had an argument at a Miami strip club; causing him to lose one of his eyes.
