Aaron Hernandez, a hotshot tight end for the New England Patriots, was arrested little over a week after the slain body of an acquaintance was found in an industrial park near the star's Massachusetts home. The case was declared to be a homicide investigation, and police were issued a warrant upon discovery Hernandez had destroyed his home's security system and had smashed his phone to pieces. After continued media speculation, Hernandez was arrested and charged with murder. Within a mere two hours of Hernandez's arrest, the New England Patriots released the star tight end from the team.
