05:13 PM ET 06.20 | 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.

Does the NFL even have an image to protect anymore? Makes you long for the days of Lyle Alzado and John Matuszak. At least all they did was steroids and step on a few heads while playing.

On May 10, 1963, Eugene "Big Daddy" Lipscomb died of an overdose of heroin
That made news all over the States how a football player had done dope. Things have really changed.

Maybe he Hernandez should just hold up a sign that reads "Person of Interest".

If they are going to search your place twice under 2 warrants you are called a "suspect".

Destroying his home security system and cell phone was enough to make the cops suspicious, but hiring a cleaning crew puts him front and center on the suspect list. Surprised he hasn't been arrested yet.

Richard Jewell, Atlanta, 1996... The media and the police will never use the word suspect again.

Nice house in a nice neighborhood...never knew North Attleboro was so uptown.

Person of Interest = Suspect?

No offense to the few good Pats fans like DD, LCB and a few others.

Either guilty of a legal offense, or guilty of stupidity in choosing his Buds!

I would think the absolute best case scenario for him is to be charged with obstruction of justice. No way he walks without at least some charges now. Hard to get him for evidence tampering though if they don't know what he destroyed per say. (I know it was a phone and a security system but they're after what those things contained, not the devices themselves). And upscale criminal move... hiring a cleaning crew to sterilize your house. I'll bet that place stinks of ammonia and bleach and can be smelled from miles away.

You only go to jail for one of those choices

You're probably thinking of Attleboro.

There's a horribly irresponsible headline on USA Today (who's surprised?) that says "Resident says townspeople assume Aaron Hernandez is guilty". When you click in you find it's just some resident of the area saying no one is exactly backing the guy up, though they're loving the circus.

"They just, for the most part, are getting a big kick out of it," he said. "But they don't seem to be backing him up, that's for sure. From what I've heard, they just assume he's guilty. And it's just another circus with the NFL."

This is just some guy a reporter found to talk to. We all know some people have an annoying tendency to site one friend's opinion as "what I've been hearing from people is..." And yet they ran with that headline. The Richard Jewel thing might have brought a lot of changes to both law enforcement and media handling of these things (thanks for pointing that out, Evol), but the media still needs to be held accountable for BS like this. Like everyone else I have strong doubts about AH now, but this is still unfair reporting. In fact, this isn't reporting. It's laziness.

This is starting to make dope and slapping "insert word used for gardening tools with long handles typically used to dig up potatoes" look pretty tame. No wonder Pacman was chosen to do a PSA for rookies.
